WHAT: A high quality clothing range for girls age 3 -13 with a distinctly bohemian feel, featuring shots of bright colour against neutral backgrounds, intricate and unique embroideries, timeless silhouettes and beautiful fabrics that stand the test of time.

WHY: The attention to detail boasted by this collection is breathtaking. We loved the stunning embroidery, fun neon trims and upbeat feel of every piece. There wasn’t a single judge who didn’t love this range, which arrived at Junior HQ in stunning tissue paper wrapping and pom pom trimmed dust bags! Lots of our judges commented that they would love all these clothes in grown up sizes. Lucky for them, the two mothers who design the collection have decided to grow their small capsule collection of mini-me mum’s pieces over the seasons to come. Our judges said:

Love everything about this brand. Boho for kids that is just gorgeous.
Gayle Rinkoff, Celebrity Stylist and head of wardrobe on The Voice

Made with natural, long-lasting, quality fabrics to create heirloom pieces that can be passed down, these clothes are inspired by nature, motherhood and a desire to maintain the innocence of childhood.

The simple cuts and pretty details make them the perfect choice for parents and children who love pared back, fuss free style with a gentle nostalgic nod. Our judges said:

WINNER: SILVER BEST GIRLS FASHION COLLECTION

WHO: Marie-Chantal London

WHAT: A luxury clothing brand offering timeless pieces updated for contemporary life, founded by Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece. With a focus on beautifully designed separates, coats and party dresses, this brand is known for its attention to detail and stunning quality.

WHY: The Spring Summer 2019 collection showcased at the Junior Design awards really caught our judges’ attention. The gorgeous, light as air dresses inspired by the romantic idyll of Summer on Ile St Louis in Paris experienced by Princess Marie Chantal herself, really did conjure up carefree childhood holidays and we loved the the more contemporary rose printed all-in-one and co-ordinating pieces.

Timeless classic pieces that can be dressed up or down paired with a leather jacket or a cashmere cardigan.

Best Girls Fashion Collection | Junior Design Awards 2019

WINNER: BRONZE BEST GIRLS FASHION COLLECTION

WHO: Question Everything

WHAT: A range of classic hand-smocked girls clothes with a modern twist. This brand mixes traditional hand worked techniques and classic silhouettes with fun, contemporary fabrics made from 100% cotton.  Designed in London, all of Question Everything’s garments are specially made in a modern and sustainable factory in Manila and ethical production and community support is core to the brand’s production values.

WHY: This hand finished and quirky-in-the-best-way collection really captured our judges’ imaginations who all loved the marriage of modern fabrics with traditional techniques and cuts. The smocking, peter pan collars and puffed sleeves teamed with slightly rebellious prints were a huge hit with everyone and the loose, comfortable cuts were commented on by several judges. Here are a few of our judges’ notes:

A modern take on traditional clothing with a retro feel.
Tracey Jacob, children’s fashion stylist
The smocking on these dresses is so beautiful and the prints really make me smile.

I love the fact that these dresses can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and that they are nice and light and roomy so that movement isn’t restricted.
