  • Co-shopping during the holidays is one of the most im-

    portant moments of contact between parents and their

    children. In fact, shopping together can be a learning

    experience since parents and children are continuously

    interacting with each other and sharing their own tastes

    about colors, styles, sizes, fit, and preferences.

    Whether you are shopping by yourself or with your little

    one next to you, I hope youll find some great gift ideas,

    discover some new shops, or simply get inspired for the

    holidays!

    Warmly,

  • SEASONS SPOTLIGHT THATS NOT FAIR LONDON

    Thats Not Fair London is launching its first collection in an age of increasing consumer awareness, we are

    more socially aware than ever, and frequently asking questions, as we should, about exactly where our

    money is going and exactly what we are getting in return for our hard earned cash.

    As the High Street explodes with bargains that seem too good to be true, history continually teaches

    us that when something to us at such a low price, then someone, somewhere else is paying a very high

    price indeed. The juxtaposition to this side of fashion is of course the designer baby boom, where we now

    routinely see childrens wear emblazoned with designer logos, and carrying the price tag to match.

    We are introducing a collection of revised classics including traditional gabardine Trench Coats and hand

    knitted pure wool jumpers that have been made with the same consideration to design as you would find

    in adult tailoring. That lack of considerate design and flexibility in childrens garments led to the bir th of

    Thats Not Fair London, when our founders, working parents with a personal and professional interest in

    fashion, grew tired of the limited and generic designs available for their young twin daughters.

    The collection has been designed to completely cover any childs clothing requirements consisting of

    everything from tights, jeans and t-shir ts, to dresses, shir ts and outerwear, with many classics being given

    a contemporary twist so you have multiple options from one piece, including jackets with detachable

    sleeves and beautifully tailored shir ts with detachable bow ties and Victorian ruffles.

    Thats Not Fair London is sensibly priced luxury rather than obscene extravagance. We have applied all

    the techniques of Savile Row tailoring to our blazers and trousers; silk based lining and binding seams in

    contrasting colours, and differing details for the trimmings of the boys and girls pieces, and we are using

    our own Scottish knit design for all our hand woven jumpers and cardigans.

    All of this quality and attention to detail is par t of our commitment to providing beautiful, sustainable

    childrens fashion to a broad audience of parents by producing exceptional design without extor tionate

    prices.

  • SEASONS SPOTLIGHT ILOVEGORGEOUS

    ilovegorgeous was star ted in 2006 by friends Lucy Enfield and Sophie Worthington. Both mothers

    with a background in fashion, they realised that the only way to dress their children as they really liked

    was to do it themselves. Six months after their first collection was launched they could count Kate Moss,

    Claudia Schiffer, Stella Tennant and Sam Taylor-Wood as their customers and Selfridges had opted for an

    exclusive.

    In December 2008 ilovegorgeous opened its first flagship shop in Ledbury Road, London W11. And in

    February 2009 it launched its e-commerce site www.ilovegorgeous.co.uk

    STYLE: ilovegorgeous was born out of a fascination with fabric, colour, trim silhouette and a little hint

    of sparkle. Fun and feminine, the aim of the brand is to make everyday and par ty wear for girls who love

    to be girls and arent afraid to show it.

    We draw inspiration from everywhere a slogan, an icon, a colour. Everything makes us tick and we love

    to mix up colours and textures and trims to create beautiful unusual clothes that girls all over the world

    will treasure and love to wear.
