Mum of six (Stella Ameinova) has created a contemporary children’s fashion brand using her keen eye for trend, colour and style. Gender equality is a hot topic right now and this diverse and active collection fits in with the modern times. Stella’s experience as a mother has helped her combine practicality and functionality but still fitting in high end style status.

Over the weekend we took a trip to Brighton to visit BIF ( Brighton Illustration Fair ) It was a great chance to see the best of Brighton's local artists and designers. Fun workshops to get involved in and exciting prints and design goodies to spend the pocket money!
If you didn't get a chance to see any of the London Design Festival, then you need to get it in your diary for next year!
With events all over London there was so much to see. We headed down to the V&A, Villa Walala and Joy and Peace by Morag Myerscough and Luke Morgan.
Villa Walala was great fun. As you may be able to tell on this blog we are big fans of Camille Walala and always love seeing her designs.
Joy and Peace is a bright and playful installation in 2 parts, it brings a splash of colour to the city.
