Pirouette hearts New York! This summers edition was a fantastic and visually creative hub of kid’s fashion and design. We were amazed to see a strong presence of Lithuanion and Latvian labels exhibiting at the New York show each with an original and distinct brand identity . Throughout the Sunday it was great to see our Pirouette One to Watch winners in Fashion and Design receiving a lot of well deserved attention from the visitors. So here we go, a brief introduction to the winners of our Pirouette One to Watch at Playtime New York for Fashion, & Design.
Playtime Paris added 50 extra brands to this edition of the kid’s fashion and lifestyle trade show. This meant there was an extra annex added on to the show at the North entrance which as it turned out was where we found one of our Pirouette One to Watch winners. This was a vibrant edition with so much to see but let’s introduce you to the Pirouette One to Watch winners in fashion and design at Playtime Paris for ss18.
What a busy Sunday morning at the Vinyl factory for Dot to Dot London. Although the exhibitor numbers were very slightly down for this edition compared with January, visitors certainly appeared to be on the up. Buyers, press, and stylists alike dotting about the stands made for a fun buzz at this little independent show taking place in the lovely brick lined venue of the Vinyl factory, Soho. Dot to Dot has become a great resource for press, buyers and stylists on the search for something a little new on their doorstep in London. Thankfully, colour is making it’s way steadily back into kid’s fashion with warm toned reds, yellows, orange and blues. The exhibitors had some wonderful products and collections at the show, (lots to write about later). But here are our winning brands of the Pirouette One to Watch for ss18 at Dot to Dot London.
Playtime Paris had over 500 labels exhibiting this time round so finding the Pirouette One to Watch winners took a bit of footwork, but boy was it worth it. It’s important to say how impressed we were with the brands in the ‘New Now’ space, the emerging talent in this section was really great to see with each label exhibiting their own unique selling points. It was a shame not to have more awards to give out.
There was so much emerging talent at Dot to Dot that it made our job of selecting The Ones to Watch very difficult but what a lovely day walking through the show talking with the exhibitors and looking through the collections. So many were producing at their country of origin (in this case mainly the UK), which is great to see. So without further ado here are our Pirouette One to Watch winners from Dot to Dot London for ‘Children’s Fashion & Accessories’ and ‘Children’s Design’ …
