Caeli Kids


Caeli is Latin for heaven. That’s what we try to make. A little piece of heaven to bring out your child’s inner angel.

New York-based Caeli Kids is a brand-new line of upscale dresses and sets for girls in sizes infants thru 16. A former head designer at US Angels, Rare Editions and Gerson & Gerson (Bonnie Jean), Caeli Kids owner/designer Quynh Waddell has taken her talents and partnered with a premium dress factory to produce this exquisite line. “Because Caeli Kids is partners with our factory, prices are much less than our competitors and very affordable,” Liz Faber tells me.

Great for Moms

“Being a mother of three kids, I understand the need to make clothes that look great and last,” Quynh says. “When I design, I look for patterns and color that excite me. I don’t go for what’s been sold already but what I would buy for my own girls.”

Dressy with a Twist

The launch collection is filled with a mix of novel, on-trend knits and woven fabrics, with embellishments such as laser-cut patterns, neoprene netting with satin ribbon soutache, sequin stripes with fringe, chunky, elaborate detailed floral embroideries with metallics, polka dot knit jacquard, high quality brocades, holiday laces and original prints. Silhouettes are traditional dressy and fun casual, with a new twist. Very nice!

Cirkel USA Tutus at a Glance

  • 100% American tulle
  • Handmade
  • Lasts for two children’s sizes or up to two years
  • Adjustable waistband

“We were simply inspired by our daughter and her love of tutus.”  

Founders Fabio and Maria Jose have been making tutus since 2002. Their daughter kept outgrowing her tutus so the two decided to start making their own. With an adjustable waistband, their daughter could keep wearing her favorite tutus for years rather than just a few weeks. That’s when Fabio and Maria decided to start making them for other children as well.

Inspired by their young daughter, the two began the company in Quito, Ecuador. To expand their business, they recently moved it to Florida, which allowed them to produce the two new collections to exhibit at MAGIC. The collections are the result of a collaboration with Belgian stylist Romina Sergi, who created fashionista-based designs for The Fashion Collection, while Fabio and Maria used their tutu expertise to bring the designs alive.

Both collections are on display now at the Cirkel USA booth 74061 at MAGIC. Cirkel is also exhibiting some of their onezies, customized using Swarovski crystals, foil, tulle and other fabrics. Their products prices range from $25 to $50.

Luxe ball gown rentals are typically around $100 for styles that normally retail for over $500. Outfit add-ons and accessories, including collars, capelets, headbands and flower crowns, are available for rent at a reasonable range of $8 to $20. The nude Swan Queen dress and Queen’s Tiara by Tutu du Monde are two of the most popular rentals.

Erica created the concept for Rainey’s Closet after she has a frustrating experience coordinating clothing and accessories for her annual family photo session. Spending countless hours tracking down items often too expensive or unable to arrive in time, then scrambling to find something for her three-year-old daughter, Rainey (namesake!), Erica realizes the need for a streamlined, luxury children’s fashion rental business. She says, “After a lot of time and money was invested in an outfit that would be worn only once, I thought, ‘I wish there was somewhere I could rent everything in one place and be done with it.”
