Fashion is just one of the many ways girls show their sass and independence, often picking out their own clothing at a young age. Even if these early ensembles are far from Vogue-ready, they’re a sign that the child is starting to develop her own sense of self and autonomy. Molly Glitz, Zaza Couture, Nina & Nelli, and Celegrity Kids all offer looks that lean slightly toward the bold and avant garde, while still staying solidly in the confines of comfortable, easygoing children’s wear.

Some of us see a piece of material and dream of all it can be. Lena Aboo made those dreams a reality. By simply finding a piece of leather from her mother’s skirt and witnessing the skills of an Indian shoemaker, Aboo was inspired to create her first pair of leather baby shoes. The experience of hand-making something as personal as a baby’s first pair of shoes brought Aboo closer to childlike creativity, a time with no rules. And from that feeling, she created Sonatina. The result is the kind of display-worthy, high-quality leather shoes that will become heirloom pieces.

Yoga has enormous benefits for kids. It’s soothing which helps calm them down and it energizes so they get a boost when needed. Mompreneur Jensen Wheeler Wolfe had taught yoga for years so when her daughter’s preschool teacher needed an activity, she stepped in faster than you can say “downward dog.” First, she cut up regular adult yoga mats into four. seeing how enthusiastically the kids took to the child-sized mats, she converted her clever idea into a business: The Little Yoga Mat.

Most of the time, clothing designers are inspired by the work of other designers, or sometimes by the shapes, colors and textures they encounter in the world around them. In some cases, however, clothing designers have a more story-driven vision behind their clothing, one that imbues each collection with its own individual “personality” chosen from a cast of original characters. This is the case with Gardner and the Gang, a children’s clothing company based in Singapore. From punk rock bulldogs to DJ camels and beyond, these funky friends have their own rich pasts, hopes, dreams and hobbies.

Getting good buzz from the right sources isn’t easy, but some companies just have the right combination of solid products and good connection to garner plenty of positive attention right out of the gate. marin + morgan has buzz in the bag. This children’s clothing maker officially launches their line of sophisticated miniature couture in July 2015, but they’re already being talked about in glowing terms by industry insiders, and have been nominated for Earnshaw’s annual Earnie Award for best new product. marin + morgan’s style is inspired by parent-child fashion matching habits often seen in high style magazines and on the streets of some of the world’s swankiest neighborhoods.

Once upon a time a Texas gal grew up adoring her Marlborough man-handsome dad who melded ranching with designing cowboy boots. Inspired by him and wild about all things Western and Native American, Adrian Layne developed Cuddlestar, a line of Western wear for babies and toddlers. There are one-piece garments decked with images of cowboys, ponies, and Native American themes like the Thunderbird and Dream Catchers, all cute and very wearable for that Western vibe.

As Digital Natives grow up with everything electronic, there’s a growing trend of going backward to a simpler time. As we see a resurgence in 80s fashion and throwback cartoons have become kitschy cool (how many handsome leading men weren’t even born when the heroes they play splashed across our TVs on Saturday mornings?), organizations like Jam’n Products are riding the wave. Fostering close relationships with historic vendors like Mattel, SpinMaster and more, Jam’n has cornered the market on old-school cool.

Where should you manufacture? And how does a factory’s location affect doing business? When it comes to manufacturing a product, it’s a safe bet that finding and choosing a supplier that meets your needs will be one of your greatest challenges. When importers are selecting among an endless list of possibilities, factory location can often take a back seat to factors like price, product quality and shipping deadline. But what if we told you that factory location can, and almost always does, greatly impact all of those factors and more?
