But here is some info about the collection!
girlstalktoboys is proud to present their very first collection, Beneath the Milk Way Dreams Come True. Their Autumn/Winter 2016 Collection takes your kids on a spectacular journey through their Milky Way of dreams. Inspired by the designer’s daughter’s imagination and love for stars, this collection combines shooting stars, geometric star print and Milky Way constellations. Compatibility and layering are the design principles. Every piece can be layered in one way or another offering many outfit opportunities: throw the whole collection on the floor, close your eyes, pick a few pieces, open your eyes and, voila, you’ll have the coolest look. This makes the collection easier for the buyer. Everything goes together!
Using inspiration from Japanese and Korean fashion, you’ll find drop crotch ankle grazer trousers, pleated denim midi skirts, oversized fleece blazers and smart button-up shirts. The collection provides a smart, sophisticated, laidback look, all while allowing your kids to be kids and jump around in comfort!
girlstalktoboys is designed and owned by Kelly Ekardt. Kelly Ekardt has extensive experience working in the kidswear industry. She studied Product Development and Fashion Design at the University of Missouri-Columbia (US) before being awarded a Fashion Design Scholarship in London to finish her studies. Soon after graduation she moved back to the States and became a location stylist, working with high-end and catalogue models. She found herself back in London in 2008 where she founded and co-owned a kids e-commerce site called I Dream Elephants.
In 2013 she decided it was time to venture out on her own and start designing again. In parallel she has worked for Little Icons Agency, Babyccino Kids, Sense Organics and continued to write her blog girlstalktoboys.
The name girlstalktoboys came from a trip Kelly and her husband took to Vienna. On a sign post in the city centre, there was a piece of paper that said: “FACT: girls that talk to boys from a young age will have better relationships”. Kelly thought this was great as it could relate to boys and girls. She interpreted it as building confidence in your children to always be themselves and never to be scared to talk to those around you.
girlstalktoboys is about building confidence in your children through what they wear. Kids feel good when they like what they are wearing; it’s a form of self-expression. It’s true, clothes do speak louder than words!
girlstalktoboy is designed and manufactured in London, England.
