Children's Fashion Fairs

Children’s fashion fairs will be taking place throughout the summer, the first of which were Pitti Bimbo and Bubble London both last week.
The third show is Playtime, which will take place in Paris, at the Parc de Flora, 4th- 6th July. The fair will be open 9.30am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday and from 9.30am-5pm on Monday. Playtime is one of the few fairs dedicated to children’s fashion and maternity wear. They have also just launched a new website -www.playtimeshopping.com- so you can find out where to buy the brands you see there.
The next show on the agenda is Kleine Fabriek, held at the RAI in Amsterdam, on the 5th-6th July. You’ll be able to see over 400 new collections from new designers along with well known brands such as Jean Paul Gaultier Junior and Hugo Boss, as well as interior products, gifts and toys.
On 2nd-4th August Bubble New York will be held at 269 11th Avenue.
Next up, is the ENK Children’s Club, which is also held in New York and runs 2nd-4th August. ENK has hundreds of children’s brands exhibiting as well as catwalks of the collections.
The last of the summer children’s fashion fairs is CPM. Held in Moscow, it is the biggest of the fairs and features women’s, men’s and children’s collections. This runs from the 6th-9th September.
