I’m a sucker. Yep. I’ll be the first to admit it too. And while that’s true about many facets of me, one particular thing that I’m a complete sap for is for fun, whimsical fashion. I truly love when garments are playful; not so serious all the time. A lot of fashion that I see come out of countries like Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan are just so evocative.

They’re happy clothes. They’re clothes that make a statement. Love it or hate it, they have a strong voice and that’s what I think defines the difference between clothes and fashion.

Fashion design for kids is HUGE there. Some of my very favorite kids brands are Ah-hem, Peach-Cream, Allo Cotton, Bien a Bien, Amber, and, above all else, Annika.

Annika always seems to come up with things I would never think to add to a garment! It always puts a smile on my face!
Frills and faces, silly sayings and bold colors, the juxtaposition of sweet and playfully edgy fill me up with so much inspiration and drive to be equally progressive and creative.
