I love the summertime, not just because of the sunshine and the beautiful bright colored fabrics I get to work with……but because things slow down. That gives me plenty of time to design and create.
July is not a very busy month for Kinder Kouture. As a matter of fact, my turnaround time right now is 2 weeks. This has become normal over the last five years, and I don’t fret about it anymore. July is usually a time most of us go on vacation, or just enjoy the sunshine and spending time with family and friends. That is what summertime is all about. So of course, when I get a free moment, I like to design BACK TO SCHOOL clothes for my shop, as well as Christmas. Don’t worry, I will not start showing Christmas for a few more weeks. At the moment, I just want to show you what I have done for the first days of FALL.
Many of us designers have discussions about what to sell during this time of year. Here in Florida, it is hot and muggy, and it is going to stay that way for at least the next two months. I realize up north things are a lot cooler, but in general most of my friends are talking summer. So what does a mom buy for their daughter to wear on the first day of school? I know that my kids will be wearing shorts, skirts or dresses. I also know that I won’t risk buying long pants yet until I feel the cool air coming. Fall does not actually start until the end of September and that is still 2 1/2 months down the road. So once again, what should we design for Back-To-School?
Although Olivia is 7, she is beginning to develop her own style and will no longer just wear everything mommy puts in her closet. I am proud of the fact that she at least wears pretty colors, and nothing too revealing. So most of the time, I allow her to speak openly to me if she does not like something. So it is my objective to make clothing that girls her age want to wear, and will also please the mommies. This is why I designed a top with a collar. The collar just adds that sweet “girly” feeling to the top.
The fabric I used is full of apples in gold, pink and red tones. It is a gorgeous FALL fabric that was perfect for BACK TO SCHOOL. I hope you like it. I had a bit of difficulty deciding on whether to add aqua or gold as an additional color so I decided on both options. LOL. I was just in love with the yellow,but everyone else voted for the aqua. I guess that is what I get for asking. So offering both colors to all of my customers seemed like the right thing to do. I know many of you would not hestitate to ask me for something else. So when you visit my website, you will see an option for a sash color. The leggings are capris, however full length leggings are also available. If you cannot find them, feel free to ask at email@example.com.
