Kids are the future of our industry. The small fry of today is the World Champion of tomorrow. Moreover, they add cuteness to every horse show! It is always really sweet to watch the lead line class and see so many kids enthusiast about their four legged friends.
But how important is fashion for children? Is it difficult to make them happy when it is about show clothes? To find out more about it, I interviewed Brittanie Herrnstein of Brittz Glitz. Brittanie is specialized in creating clothes for the little ones and she explained me how it is to work with them. Do you want to find out more? Than go on reading 😉
What is appropriate to wear for a kid?
Brittanie: In my opinion ANYTHING with lots of sparkle and color. I’m a big fan of a ton of color on the kids clothing. I also love the classic black, but you have to add a big pop of color, kids are only little once so I believe we need to embrace the youthful look as long as we can!
Normally mums choose clothes for their kids. How much want kids to choose their own outfit?
Brittanie: I have been blessed with amazing clients, where mom and child work together. Moms usually pick the main color and we let the kids choose the fun parts of the designs. I had a little girl last year that was obsessed with unicorns, so I made sure that she had sparkly unicorns on her vest.
Kids change their minds quite fast, how do you manage to create an outfit that is always “super” for them?
Brittanie: I like to get the kids really excited about their outfit. I add a ton of texture to the majority of my outfits and it’s always fun to watch them find all of the new pieces that they hadn’t seen the first few times they wore their garment. It’s almost like an I spy book that they wear!
What are the main differences in creating outfits for children instead than for adults?
Brittanie: The main difference in creating kids clothing is that I’m able to have a little more fun with color, and to be honest it makes me feel younger. Kids are so creative and so much fun to work with. I like to include them as much as possible through the process of design.
Do you want to add something?
Brittanie: I would like to add that I’m beyond blessed with how far my business has come in such a short amount of time, I have the most amazing clients anyone could ask for. I want to thank my family for everything they do to help Brittz Glitz. I’m excited to see what the future holds!
Thanks Brittanie! It was such a pleasure to make this fun and interesting interview to you!
Color is the key word when we talk about kids clothes. Fashion is a fundamental part of showing horses, no matter the age. Little girls dream to look like princesses, and wearing show clothes can make this dream come true. Covered of stones and enlighten with fun colors, they can be stars at every horse show. Because, at the end, we all dream to be princesses 😉
