Last January, James and I visited a fabulous event called Bubble London, curious to see what it was all about. Bubble is a trade show for children’s fashion, so it’s full of amazing kid’s clothes from around the world. It’s where retailers choose the lines that they’d like to sell for the upcoming season. Some of my favourite labels are there, like Beau Loves, Angel’s Face and Tootsa MacGinty. Thank goodness it’s a trade show or else I might have burned a hole in my bank account buying gorgeous clothes for Baby.
So our people called their people and, lo and behold, James and I travelled to the Business Design Centre in Islington last Monday for June’s Bubble event to create a pop-up photo studio.
Can I just say, the children who came to our stand were some of the best dressed kids I have ever seen, including the lovely poppet at the top of this post in a gorgeous Angel’s Face dress, whose mum is the editor of www.fluxlings.com. I suppose that’s to be expected at a show built around children’s fashion, but OH MY GOD! I don’t even dress as well and as coordinated as some of these little guys.
We had a load of fun props and clothes to play with. Here are some of the magnificent kids who I photographed at Bubble:
This little French boy was so stylish, it made my wardrobe ache. Skinny jeans and a nautical-themed top – trés chic! So we decided to ruin the look that his mother painstakingly created with some gaudy sunglasses. Ha ha!
And he was really fun to photograph, too. Here are some more of him, sticking it to the British via a bunting tug-o-war.
Okay, enough of him and his amazing French style!
This little Polish boy knew how to have fun with a balloon. Again with the fabulous outfit and skinny jeans…
Unsurprisingly, her mother works in fashion. How cute is she!
Wearing a frilly top from Angel’s Face, she taught me a thing or two about taking pictures.
How strikingly blue are his eyes! And he seems to have found love with an Air Puppy dog.
And here’s the “Babe” from Babes About Town blog, sporting some crazy glasses and jump, jump, jumping!
I feel like that top image needs a caption…something like, “Take us to your leader!”
She looked quite the little princess in her Angel’s Face combo. Loving the tiara!
And because he can’t possible resist when whacky props are involved, here are some of James, the biggest kid I know.
