Children’s Club débuts CURATE, an elevated showcase for global children’s wear collections.
Children’s Club returns to New York’s Jacob Javits Center August 5-7 with a selection of the best children’s brands in the market across newborn to age 12, layette items, fashion accessories, footwear, toys and gifts.
This August, the show débuts a new destination that highlights the most elevated children’s collections from the SS’19 season, re-imagines the show floor to offer a new perspective of the kidswear marketplace and will serve as the destination for retailers to engage with the most innovative designers in children’s fashion.
“Our mission for 2018/2019 is to build the momentum behind the children’s wear market and unify the children’s community on both a domestic and global scale. The launch of CURATE is the first step in developing more aspirational neighborhoods that continue our mission to reimagine the children’s market,” VP and Brand Director Shawn Hazan says. “The area will offer our retailers a platform for exploration, discovery and networking with an elevated selection of well-merchandised brands. We’re launching Curate with over 45 internationally-inspired collections, an unprecedented representation for Children’s Club.”
A “neighborhood” at the entrance to the show, the new CURATE @ Children’s Club features as well-known brands from Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Romania, United Kingdom, Denmark, Belgium, Sweden, The U.S., Canada and Turkey: 3 Pommes, KENZO, Lil’ Lemons by For Love and Lemons, Petite Coco and Tartine et Chocolat. In addition, actress and lifestyle expert Haylie Duff will also be at the show with brand, Little Moon Society.
