Could spring just be around the corner? Our designers of the month think so! We have found some adorable places for you this month and a great Blogger of The Month to make you think! Our theme for March is
Jenny Chavarri is a perfect example of someone who combines many passions into one incredible idea. She was educated at the University of British Columbia in Canada in the School of Business MBA program at UBC with a specialization in Strategic Management & Marketing. She has worked for a fashion manufacturer and consulting firms. She believes in a green lifestyle. On her way on a trip to Peru, she found that this country had not only stylish but high quality, all natural baby and children’s clothes. After the Free Trade Agreement between Canada and Peru in 2009, Jenny combined all of her passions and experience and created Boske Kids, a high quality, natural, imaginative clothing line. In 2011 Boske launches online and in boutiques and in September they were chosen to feature their line at a celebrity event in Los Angeles. Boske combines an environmentally friendly, green, fair trade line, with elegance and class. Not to mention, these are items your child can play in and enjoy!
The clothing sizes range from newborn to six years. Let the pictures speak for themselves! This is one of our favourite lines we have found!
Baby Bow Tie
If you have not already heard about Baby Bow Tie, then we are sure glad you will know about it now! Owner Kat Armstrong wanted some nice male accessories for her son. When she could not find what she wanted in a variety of colours at an affordable price, she filled that need by creating her own business! (Read more about Kat and her business on March 4th in our exclusive interview. It’s a must read for designers and Mompreneurs alike).
This mother’s vision and passion for running her own business created Baby Bow Tie, a fantastic business filled with beautiful, designer bow ties at affordable prices. Kat Armstrong also cares about upcycling. Her amazing packaging can also be used for food storage! She is really thinking green.
Kat is not only an innovative thinker, but she creates beautiful bow ties for children! Its a keep sake and a great fashion statement for your little guy!
You can pre-order Bow Ties at Neiman Marcus! http://www.neimanmarcus.com/search.jsp?N=4294914609&_requestid=139884&Ntt=bow+tie
Blogger of the Month: Katherine Adamchick- Rustic City Dweller
Katherine is a Mommy to be, an artist and a blogger in Toronto. This Canadian blogger talks about everything from great restaurants to yummy recipes. She is bursting with ideas and thoughts and it is exciting following her finds across one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world. She has a Thoughts and Confessions section, which has made us laugh, think and sometimes tear up a bit. We love following her through out her pregnancy as she prepares for the big day of Mommy-hood. Katie is the blogger to read if you are looking for creative inspiration, thoughts and musings, recipes, style or project ideas (check out the transformation of the Ikea dresser!) Follow her through her pregnancy. Katie is a seasoned writer, published in many life and style magazines in Canada, but now we find her branching out on her own, leading us through her creative and multi-tasking lifestyle!
