Back-to-School Children's Club Earns an A+
With over 750 collections, including 123 new lines, the three-day ENK Children’s Club Fall/Winter Back-to-School Show was an extravaganza of children’s fashion at its best! This coming together of leading brands in the children’s market was a perfect representation of what today’s market demands in both style and price, and featured over 100 environmentally-conscious collections from established brands like Coccoli, Kate Quinn Organics, Sage Organics and Petit Bateau. The Giggle Guide®’s Leesa Valentino covered the show and had her eye on the following favorites: Kiwi Industries, la Lovie, Skylar Clothing and UB2 Urban Baby Bonnet.
