Designer Interview with Vivid Kids Apparel
Collection Name: Vivid Kids Apparel
Upcoming Showcase: Baltimore Fashion Week Kids Show
Why did you choose fashion designing as a career?
After having my daughter, Layla, I noticed that kids had no clothing lines that represented who they were, what they liked to do and how they saw life from those innocent eyes. Nothing they could directly identify with so I decided to start a T-shirt collection and everything just sort of happened!
Fun. Fearless, Creative and Classic!
Growing up, was there anyone in your family who made you feel like designing?
What things outside of fashion, inspire your clothing?
Children. The things they say, their toys, their imagination! Everything about how vivid kids are inspires my clothing.
In which area of design does your line fall under? (Ex: street fashion, ready to wear, haute couture)
Vivid Kids Apparel falls under both street fashion and ready to wear.
What advice would you give to aspiring fashion designers?
Stay consistent in the fashion world, people will forget you quickly if you don't keep the momentum going. Stay true to yourself and your brand never mind what is trendy, focus on classics!
