Don’t ask me how they do it, but there are some children’s fashion designers who manage to simultaneously nail stylish and cute.
Demetriou Girls is an Etsy store stocked with the beautiful wares of talented Cypriot dressmaker Maria Demetriou. The fabric, the colours and the designs combine to make these clothes look like works of art.
My favourite is the Peony dress with its Peter Pan collar, pleated skirt and waist sash. These dresses are skilfully handmade and for special occasions, so prices are not cheap. The Peony sells for $286.
I also admire the Tulipa, a striking red dress featuring a gingham collar and bow at the waist. It costs $168.
The Swan, at $512, is girls’ couture fashion at its finest. It boasts bridal satin and layers of pleated tulle at the skirt. Breathtaking.
And does it get any more dainty than these beautiful silk baby shoes? If you have a wedding on the calendar and are looking for footwear for your baby, look no further. They sell for $76.
