Childrensalon supply clothes for Tatler

Childrensalon was recently contacted by renowned British fashion magazine, Tatler, to supply some of our beautiful traditional coats for a 14 page couture fashion feature in the magazines May issue that paid homage to the film, Funny Face, a Hollywood classic from the 1950s starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire.

Below is the image used in the feature entitled 'Vive Le Couture'. We happen to love the movie and the stunning image they recreated!

Pick of the day

With summer now well on its way, little girls will love the thought of a fabulous new accessory; which is why our favourite product this week is this gorgeous bag by Roberto Cavalli.

It is the perfect mix of summery fun and edgy glamour, covered in dainty pink and turquoise fabric flowers, yet also embellished with a bold leopard print frill trim and trendy designer tag.

Team it with a classic white dress for a formal event, or give jeans and sandals a stylish edge for a day in the park.

Pick of the day

We don't know about you, but here in the shop the spring sunshine has given us all a new lease of life and got us in the mood for all things summery.

Big sunglasses are the first item on every celebrity's must-have list, keeping out the sun's rays and the glare of paparazzi flashbulbs. That's why this week we are adoring Chloe's fabulously fashionista sunglasses - ticking off every trend they have pale, pearly frames, thick rims, a wide-eyed shape and best of all give your little girl complete UV protection and come with a hard case to keep them safe in.

The perfect showcase of the Chloe girl's fresh and pretty style, these glamorous glasses are sure to stir up some serious fashion envy!

We wish they fitted us adults!

The ChloƩ Sunglasses are available in our shop with an exclusive 10% off for a limited time only! Alternatively, email us for more details.

Window to Easter

Jemma - one of our talented staff members - beautifully decorated our shop window for the Easter holidays. She wrote some words describing her process and inspiration...

Visions of Easter are a mood-enhancing tribute to the awakening of spring, blossoms, buds and the return of colour after the sombre monotones of winter.

Children Salon is a fantasy atelier of the finest brands brought to life, this is an inspiring basis that lends itself perfectly to creating your own mini world in a window. My starting point was our fabulous Children Salon tissue paper, which somehow blossomed all by itself into a little dream land of Children Salon flowers and bold, bright clothing set against whites, creams and overcast greys.

In many ways I’ve found that window dressing is about illustrating one side of Children Salon’s personality as a story, it’s a little landscape that doesn’t exist in reality, but captures a mood or theme that does.

Using my forgotten craft skills, I turned my living room into a flower factory – I had pipe-cleaner and tissue paper coming out of my ears – to create a flower carpet and decorated ivy climbers as little May poles or Easter trees. In love with the illustrations of Jeffrey Fulvimari I brought some of his kitsch style into creating little bunny masks for a surreal, candy-land background.
Choosing outfits and accessories was easy with so much dramatic colour and joviality within the collections – all shades of elfish green prevailed as did vibrant, daffodil yellow, dressed up with dapper tailoring and all manner of shape and form that has made the collections so exciting.

Perhaps the most satisfying motivation is the amazing encouragement and support of my ideas from the whole team – Thanks guys!
