Olive Loves Mini Rodini

As soon as the new collection from Mini Rodini arrived I took home a few pieces.  It’s always interesting, sometime unpredictable, to see what Olive’s reaction is.  Mini Rodini instantly received the big thumbs up.  It’s not always clear why individual things are such a bit hit with kids but as Olive says she  loves to wear her Panda Bow Tie Tee and Panda Print Leggings aka her “Panda Suit'”an expression that I love!

When I began working on my concept for Olive Loves Alfie I was on a mission to leave the pink, frilly fru fru world behind.  I could have been accussed of banging on about it but it was a constant source of frustation to me.  Why did boys have to dress as though they were aspiring to be boring middle aged men and why did girls have to dress as though they were aspiring to being princesses.  I was told time and time again that my idea would fall flat on it’s face but unswayed I knew I wasn’t the only person out there happy enough to encourage kids to embrace  their individuality and to challenge grown ups who had fallen into the trap of gender sterotyping.

Almost 4 years later the conversation is now very different and I am definatley not on my own.   There are some wonderful designers out there creating great clothes for kids.
