Kids InStyle is a boutique trade only show where retailers can meet up with wholesalers to see the latest high end baby and kids fashion and design. It’s held in conjunction with Life InStyle (which is more homewares and gifts) in Sydney and Melbourne each year. I was lucky enough to attend this event a few months ago as a media representative and got to see some of the beautiful wares that are not only already available but also preparing for launch.
It’s a really beautiful show in Melbourne; held in the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton Gardens. Here’s a photo of the Kids InStyle area:
I got the chance to meet some really lovely people. One of my favourite brands was Rare Rabbit who make gorgeous beaded, leather and vintage inspired jewellery and accessories for both women and girls. here are the lovely ladies from Rare Rabbit and some of their gorgeous girls range.
Here’s some of the girls’ range:
But, one of the best things about Rare Rabbit is they have a boys’ range! There are awesome dinosaur necklaces and timber beaded bracelets – take a look!
Walnut had some really cute shoes in their range:
Kids Instyle was also where I first met Escargot and their oh-so-soft milk cotton:
And also where I discovered Lucky Boy Sunday.
The show was a great opportunity for networking and for me to meet the people behind some great baby & kids brands. I’m looking forward to the 2012 event which I am sure will be bigger and better and can’t wait!
