The Baby Show September 2009

We recently exhibited at The Baby Show in Sydney.
The event was held at The Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park, next to Fox Studios.
It was very exciting to be involved in this event - being the first one in Australia,
and my daughter delighted in meeting Dorothy the Dinosaur and her friends
Waggs, Henry and Captain Feathersword at the opening.
The event was superbly set up, with a gorgeous variety of exhibitors of products,
ranging from your most exquisite prams, to stunning photography, and we were
thrilled to stand alongside established children's designers and upcomming boutique
children's wear designers. Everything from Oobi and Pumpkin Patch, to
Natures Baby, L'il Ludy swimwear, and gorgeous Jock and Tilly.

we were honoured to be asked to supply four outfits for the fashion parade.
My beautiful sister Loren was a fantastic help over the weekend, and also
a big Thank You to Anne from Czarque (gorgeous baby shoes) we loved being neighbours,
and she was fantastic company. Also to Susan from Agoo who also helped out on Sunday.
Abby from Global Style was also so much fun to hang out with - and some wonderful
words of wisdom from this funky chick who has been operating now for 10years!
Kelly from Little Bubble and Tree is an absolute delight, she made the trip up from
Melbourne and we just love her styling and displays - so clever!
And lastly, our gorgeous friend Elizar from Huggalugs was a real crowd favourite -
speaking on stage at the mumpreneurs seminar, and looked a sight walking around
the show in her hot pink leg ruffles and stilettos!
You can grab Huggalugs in our store - check out the gorgeous leg ruffles!

Out and About: Kids In Style Melbourne

At the end of July, you may remember that we took a trip down to Melbourne as we were invited to showcase
Cheeky Chickies Free Range Clothing at the Kids Fashion Review VIP Party.
It was perfect timing, as we were also able to visit the Kids In Style trade show that was on at The Royal Exhibition Hall in Melbourne. This is an absolutley gorgeous venue as you can see, and it is very exciting that come March 2010, we will also be exhibiting here as we will be heading to Melbourne with The Baby Show!!
We have a little round up of things that took our fancy at the Melbourne KIS:
Ramalama produce a gorgeous range of maternity and baby wear from gorgeous organic cotton fabrics. Their gear is oh so funky, and their wrap dress is particularly devine - perfect even when you are not preggers - just an easy comfy stylish dress! We first met Deena when she dropped by and introduced herself to us at the KFR VIP Party, and caught up with her the following day at the KIS show. Ramalama were also a highlight at the recent Baby Show in Sydney, and will be exhibiting at Allie's Attic in November and December (more on those in later posts)
Eco Peko have the most gorgeous little eco-friendly slogan tees and we were really impressed with Justine's totally cool eco cubby house at the KIS show.
This season's must have! Princess Ratbag have the most gorgeous and pettiskirts - total girly glamour!
We were so stoked to meet our gorgeous Lisa from Cheeky Little Soles in person. You may remember that we featured a few of these funky little shoes in our first spring/summer photo shoot, and we will have a few more in our second shoot that we are doing on Monday - featuring our Party Skirts and new Mini Bubble Shorts - so look out for them!
Lastly, we just absolutley fell in love with this super stylish vintage inspired Aussie label! Olive's Friend Pop is a collection of vintage-inspired, original clothing for little girls, but as that's a bit long, we call it 'nostalgic playwear'. Their creations are inspired by proper little-girls' clothes of our grandmothers' generation, Post WWII, and from a time when little girls looked like little girls. A bit like modern-day heirlooms. Due to launch in Februay 2010, you can check them out at
