I love clothes, shoes and bags so I feel very lucky to have a little girl who loves to dress up, maybe even much more than I do. That is why I love discovering new clothing brands for little girls that just makes it so much easier to dress Berry in fun yet age appropriate clothes.
One such brand is Manyika, a new clothing line for girls ages 2 to 10. The pieces are cute and modern, trendy and fashionable with details and designs that would be great for both casual and dressy occasions.
The designer, 28 year old Monica Padilla, studied fashion design at IstitutoMarangoni. She became Hindy Tantoco's assistant designer and eventually a lead designer, coming up with women's, swim and kids wear. It was in kids wear that Monica found her calling. She shares, "I found it so cute and exciting to do something so small, so adorable."
And adorable best describes her pieces. Plus I love that Manyika has party perfect pieces that aren't too frou frou for my taste. Elegant and again, age appropriate. Check out these dresses from the Holiday 2012 Collection:
Even Manyika's play clothes are extra special with crystals and sequins. No fail sparklies that would make any little girl happy! But with the right balance of comfort and playability - so it doesn't come off too precious that you wouldn't want your little girl to not play anymore heehee.
Manyika is available in the Children’s section of the Department Stores of SM Makati, SM Megamall, SM Marikina and SM North Edsa. It is also available online at www.zalora.com.ph.
