    2016 has opened with a bang and we’re excited to share with you some highlights from the annual Dot to Dot show at the Vinyl Factory in Soho London. The design-led trade show showcases niche, independent children’s brands.

    Walking into the venue you are quickly met with a warm and eclectic atmosphere of trendy brands and friendly entrepreneurs. With a diverse range of new and fairly young brands it was an impressive event with some very exciting products.

    The show is for buyers and press only, but here we’ll give you the low down with some of our picks of the brands that really stood out for us.

    HAM

    Established in 2011, HAMʼs minimal aesthetic seeks to add a serious edge to its playful subject matter. Childhood nostalgia and a fascination with the banal are key themes that continue to inform HAMʼs growing range of animal motifs, all of which have been created by London based designer Jo Ham and brought to life by talented makers within the UK.

    Angel’s Face was started by mother of three, Keely Deininger in 2007 as a kitchen table business based in London. The tutu – a super-soft, high-quality product which is wonderfully full of frilly nylon-chiffon layers, is simply beautiful and we took great pleasure in meeting the person behind our daughter’s favourtie item of clothing.

    The name girlstalktoboys came from a trip Kelly and her husband took to Vienna. On a sign post in the city centre, there was a piece of paper that said: “FACT: girls that talk to boys from a young age will have better relationships”. girlstalktoboys is about building confidence in your children through what they wear. Kids feel good when they like what they are wearing; it’s a form of self-expression. It’s true, clothes do speak louder than words! girlstalktoboys is designed and manufactured in London, England.
