The best looks from the fabulous catwalk show at FIMI childrenswear tradeshow

We were very impressed at the wide range of beautiful labels at the FIMI autumn winter 2011 childrenswear tradeshow; this year entitled 'Wonderful Fashion'. We spotted plenty of recurring trends that are sure to be big international hits next season. Predominant colours were burgundy, camel and grey on tweed, crushed velvet and faux fur fabrics. Lace up brogues and thigh-high pirate boots set the precedent for shoe styles, as well as cute ballet-inspired pumps with square toes (as seen at Hispanitas). Full, skater style skirts and padded puffa coats and gilets are the trendy silhouettes of the season. Pom-poms and tassels were prevalent, as is often seen on the Spanish catwalk, although for this autumn winter they will be bigger than ever!
First on the catwalk was Elisa Menuts which conjured a rather English feel thanks to the vintage styling. The models appeared with old fashioned toy cars and dolls, in clothing that was predominantly dove-grey and camel. Mini-dresses with polka dot patterns were teamed with knee socks, patent low-cut boots and a-line coats for the girls, whilst the boys sported double camel in straight leg trousers and Crombie or duffle coats. We love the addition of the bottle green colour for the boys.
