The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market® - Atlanta, Georgia (1/7/14 - 1/13/14)

“The response was amazing!” And that about sums it up for the The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market. Companies that exhibited at the January 2014 market were unanimous in declaring that it was a hit. With more than seven million square feet of space for exhibitors, AmericasMart Atlanta can afford bragging rights. Its new app launched to rave reviews, scoring in the top ten business apps, according to iTunes. In January alone, new buyer rates went up double digits, indicating an increasing wave of interest.

“They are very soft, daddy.” This testimonial by a small boy lasers in on the primary focus of Lucky & Me undergarments: comfortable, breathable foundational pieces that make parents happy and little kids want to share their enthusiasm. Rochelle Perera, co-founder of Lucky & Me, set out to create undergarments that were soft, comfortable, and safe. She found a ready audience. “We’ve had a great response from the customer – parents who appreciate high-quality products love Lucky & Me underwear,” Perera exclaimed. Lucky & Me undergarments are all about the child’s comfort. They are tagless and the elastic trims don’t tug or pull at the skin.

Today, even young kids want to look stylish no matter what the weather. Umbrellas and rain boots can seem clunky, dull and uncool, and kids may balk at getting dressed for wet days because they worry their rain clothes will harm their playground cred. Let’s not blame it all on the kids though; many parents are fashion-conscious as well and prefer their children to have rain gear that matches their other outerwear. Aquarella Kids may just have the answer. The children’s clothing retailer offers umbrellas, rain boots, backpacks, pencil cases, wallets and lunch boxes that can be bought separately or purchased together in coordinating sets.

As careful consumers, families not only want to provide beautiful, durable garments for their little ones, but also are mindful of the impact those purchases have on local economies. Helena Hubbard understands the desire to provide sophisticated designs that meet the values and ideals of an increasingly informed customer base. “We have seen an enthusiastic response to our commitment to handcrafting every garment in England,” explains Hubbard, the founder of Crowns & Coronets. She is committed to providing luxurious, natural clothing that makes every little prince and princess shine.

Sometimes the best things in life are simple. Duux makes simplicity stylish with their line of baby technology. No dancing lights, bright pink monitors, or animal-shaped humidifiers. The Duux founders felt bad for their fellow friends who tried to fit traditional colored baby electronics into their modern, stylish interior. Perfect for the parents who aren’t ready to trade style for substance, Duux flat out tells you: Duux is not for babies.

NY Now, formerly the New York International Gift Fair, is almost here again! The huge trade show – one of the largest of its kind in the world – is slated to run from February 1-6 at the Jacob Javitz Center in New York City, and will include some of the most successful home and lifestyle businesses in the industry, as well as those making their way to the top.

How can parents get an adorable look with little fuss and lots of style? One way to go is to punch up an outfit with a kid-sized tie: it makes a strong statement and few things are more attention-getting than a charming child with a cute tie. The problem is that knotting a tie so that it lays flat and looks sleek can make even the most dexterous fingers all thumbs. Whodihoo owners Chris Vea and Rodney Ishihara developed their idea as a simple solution to a knotty problem: the Slicknot Tie, which utilizes magnets to allow for a perfect look every time.

Color blocking and mod styles are making a big comeback, and not just on the adult runways. There’s nothing cuter on a little girl than a flared dress or a tailored coat. The looks at Lisa Perry are sophisticated but with just the right amount of girlish whimsy, perfectly on trend for the grade school gals. As Lisa began designing clothes mirroring the art of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, people around her began reacting positively to her vintage vibe. With a focus on clean lines, geometric shapes, bold colors and minimalism, Lisa’s styles are chic updates to dated styles.
