Children's clothes have a different life cycle than their adult counterparts: they're played in, spilled on, stretched, occasionally spit up on and eventually grown out of. While all of the parents I talked to for this story say they shop mass retailers like Zara Kids and Target as well as designer brands, their main complaint was the quality. In some cases, they said, clothes would fall apart before their kids even got the chance to grow out of them. Better-made pieces, at least, can see a second life — whether as a hand-me-down to a younger sibling or a relative, a keepsake to hold onto, a donation or a resale item. Parents today have several options if they choose the latter, thanks to a slew of online designer resale and consignment stores, including Vestiaire Collective, The RealReal and My Kid's Threads.
Invest in the latest, greatest designerwear for your children and ensure they stay ahead of the fashion pack and make a lasting impression at every occasion. Whether you’re searching for a few key pieces or a complete outfit, CHILDSPLAY CLOTHING has got it covered. As one of the largest independent retailers of children’s designer clothing in the UK, we have handpicked collections that offer an array of styles so each child can express their individual identity through fashion.

Gifting, too, plays an outsize role in the childrenswear market. "While we may not buy our kids a $200 to $400 dress on a regular basis, grandparents, aunts, the people who are in your lives who want to buy for your kids often like to spend a little bit more on that and give them a special occasion dress," says Mendoza, reasoning that since "documenting every second of your child's life is so implicit in people's lives these days," it makes sense that people may feel better about splurging on pieces for occasions like holidays and birthdays.

For parents who may not be able to afford the four- and five-figure price tags of Gucci's grown-up lines, the kids' offerings provide a somewhat more affordable way to take part in the trend by proxy. Childrenswear, says Maisonette's Mendoza, "is an entry price point for luxury. You may not buy a $10,000 Dolce and Gabbana dress for yourself, but you might buy a $200 Dolce and Gabbana dress for your child and have that same experience."

Children are known for their appreciation of dirt, popsicles and boogers — less so for fancy fashion items like $865 embroidered Gucci sweaters or $390 studded Fendi sandals. And yet both brands offer sizes as small as 0-3 months, as well as full collections that run the gamut from onesies to mini leather moto jackets. In fact, just about every major luxury brand in 2017 has an offshoot line of apparel and accessories scaled down for the 12-and-under set: Dolce and Gabbana's floral-printed dresses are a hit with the mommy-and-me shopper, Moncler's Enfant collection has fur-trimmed snowsuits for tots in colder climates and Adidas's Yeezy Boosts come in infant sizes that are only slightly easier to cop than their adult counterparts. Elie Saab even went so far as to show matching gowns for children on his Fall 2016 couture runway in Paris last July.

i have read some some of the reviews below. I cant believe for one minute they are real or a competitor trying to to customers off. I have been a genuine customer of children salon for years. ive ordered from childspaly also. Even though i like both companies. Ive found children salon much better to order so i stick to them. Maybe because the other site does not offer paypal I had one issue with the colour running on the shirt and they resolved it and refunded me. This was a genuine dye problem and they fixed it immediately. The rep was so considerate and supportive. So i disagree with the customers below that said they do not help. This is not true. As a seller they have to look at the over all comments. If you have size issues then you need to ensure it is tried for fit only.Labels not removed and returned in original condition. If signs of wear then they cant refund. So it is the buyers responsibility to take care when tying on goods and return that as the seller sent. If there is a genuine manufacturing fault then they resolve it asap. But the fit cannot be guaranteed as you buy it online and not tried on. Even if going of the measurements it cannot be guaranteed. So as a buyer you need to take care and attention when purchasing. Further to this the company cannot be held responsible if the item is returned in poor condition. This company is fast and reliable and i will pick them over selfridges and any other high street designer shop. I will go into the shop and come back out and say i will get it from children salon. I trust them completely. may be they are nice to be as i never need to contact them ever. Only on 3 occasions i contacted and all issues were resolved. as a buyer please check you only try on for fit. Do not remove labels and return in original condition. Please note once it is worn and returned in not the same condition it is not saleable as it is then second hand. Designer clothes cost a lot and the company should not be held responsible if the customer did not check prior to starting to wear, you cant wear for a whole day and expect to return it the next day. Keep up the good work children salon and i will be back as i totally see you are the best in service, styles and delivery for children design clothes. 

I would be giving this review 0 other than the stars stopping me.Not impressed ordered a few times before no problems in the past. Sent an item back as the dress was too big to order a smaller size. Had a very very rude email back about the dress smelling different and had it been worn even though the dress had all tags bags etc? Basically withholding my returned monies calls and emails all this whilst away with my family which is pretty disgusting. They clearly didnt see the other email about me ordering a different size? Why would I order a dress send it back worn and then ordered a smaller size?I've never been more insulted in all my life.The customer services needs a retrain ! They should be ashamed and if it wasnt for data protection laws id be posting the insulting email for all to view trust me they would be losing custom!

For now, prospective sellers can be savvy about what they buy by keeping resale value in mind. "In the resale business, you'll see a higher return on these classic, timeless investment pieces that never go out of style, like a Burberry or Moncler jacket, or something super on-trend right now, like Gucci — everyone wants Gucci," says Locker. "We see completely what's happening in women's mirrored in children's."

For herself, she says she mostly shops at Zara for clothing, and splurges only on handbags and shoes. "When I go to the store, I first shop for my kids, then for myself," she says. "I'm one of those moms, you know? When I came across Bonpoint, I wasn't even pregnant. I was just walking down Rodeo [Drive in LA], and I saw these beautiful clothes. I've always had love for kids clothing, and I fell in love with the brand, so when I was pregnant, I knew exactly where to start buying my stuff. When I tested positive, the first thing I did was go to Bonpoint."

For dressier occasions, Aquazzura's kids' line, which launched in December, offers miniaturized versions of the brand's ultra-popular, lace-up flats and fringed sandals at $240 to $575 a pop. Ward Durrett got a pair as a gift and says her 3-year-old daughter, Grace, wears them as play shoes. "I probably shouldn't let her do that," she laughs, "but you know, that's the point — you can't be too precious about these things. They're totally scuffed up and worn, but she loves them and feels like a princess in them, and she chooses to wear them over every pair of shoes that I buy her."
Ordered my daughter a Guess handbag for her birthday from Childrensalon. The bag is clearly faulty a...s after only having it 7 weeks, using it a maximum of 5 times and storing it in the dust bag when not in use, red piping has come away in identical places on opposite sides of the bag. I contacted Childrensalon who have said it needs to be reviewed by the designer as it looks like it’s wear and tear. After me sending photos and proof of my order it is clear the bag is in immaculate condition. There has been no apology from staff for the inconvenience, instead making me feel like it is my daughters fault. I would have expected a much better customer service experience from a supposed reputable and high end company. See More

I have ordered from childrensalon three times now, never had a problem. On my last order the givenchy tracksuit only just fitted my 1 year old despite it being size 18 months. I read reviews on here about how difficult getting a refund or exchange was so I was a little reluctant to do so. I paid extra to have DPD pick the clothes from my house instead of the royal mail choice as I felt it would always be tracked. As soon as they recieved my item I had an update, I had an update when they was preparing my item and when they was sending it. I received my new item today all nicely packed and didn’t have any issues. I would 100% recommend this company as I personally have never had a problem, very easy to shop and return items, always been reasonably priced and even have a very good sale on at the moment.
While a rep for Gucci declined to comment on sales of childrenswear specifically, the brand reported record sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, jumping 48.3 percent to €1.35 billion euros, or $1.44 billion. And if creative director Alessandro Michele manages to keep up the fervor among his adult customers, the children's category should be well-positioned to keep pace. "If mom is buying a lot of Gucci, chances are, the little one is going to be dressed in a lot of Gucci as well," reasons Patel.
I ordered a shirt from the children’s salon a month in advance for my sons birthday. The shirt was to be delivered within a few days of purchasing and I never received the package. Never made it to my home but someone signed for it who clearly didn’t stay at my address let alone even had the same name they used a nickname to sign for it. I was in contact with UPS and children’s salon. They opened up an investigation and I still got the run around from both ends of back and forth. After 15 days after the package came up missing they decided to close the investigation which means I still have no shirt and my sons birthday is in 8 days :( this was the worst experience ever as a first time customer as to I didn’t originally want my money back just simply wanted a shirt but there was or of miscommunication between UPS UK and the children’s salon. I work in retail and would never provide horrible customer service as I was served. Now I have to wait for a refund of 3-10 business. I will never be using the children’s salon again

Like every other mother I spoke to, Musiyevich does most of her shopping for her daughter online (Rochester, New York, where she lives, doesn't have any high-end baby boutiques) and she says she often discovers brands through Instagram, including several from Europe that have become some of her favorites. At her age, she says, Mila doesn't yet have any strong opinions about what she wears. Even headbands, a notoriously tricky sell amongst the 2-and-under crowd, are left on undisturbed, leaving Musiyevich free to play dress-up to her heart's content.

At Saks, Fashion Director Roopal Patel says that while classic labels like Burberry are consistently strong performers, they're seeing that customers are increasingly interested in brands that offer novelty items and opportunities for "mommy-and-me" dressing. Gucci, in particular, has been a standout: "Specifically some of the statement pieces, like the more iconic Gucci emojis or snakes, are trending really well within childrenswear," she says. At Saks's new Brookfield Place location in downtown New York City, the kids' pieces are sold alongside the women's and men's clothing in the brand's in-store boutique, a relatively novel strategy for the retailer.


For parents who may not be able to afford the four- and five-figure price tags of Gucci's grown-up lines, the kids' offerings provide a somewhat more affordable way to take part in the trend by proxy. Childrenswear, says Maisonette's Mendoza, "is an entry price point for luxury. You may not buy a $10,000 Dolce and Gabbana dress for yourself, but you might buy a $200 Dolce and Gabbana dress for your child and have that same experience."

CHILDSPLAY CLOTHING have been bringing luxury brands to little people since 1990. Here you’ll discover an extensive range of children’s designerwear across clothing, footwear and accessories and find the latest fashion must-haves and the season’s key pieces across luxury labels including Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Burberry, Moncler, Moschino, Armani, Boss, Young Versace, Givenchy, Fendi and many more…

I was happy with this company until I had problem with one of the purchased item. It irritated my daughters neck and left red marks on her chin. I have contacted Childrensalon and explained this item is not suitable for young children. They complete ignored that this item might be dangerous and responded in a very patronising manner. To keep the story short they did nothing about it and were really rude. It's one of these companies who just wants your money.
So I was really apprehensive at first, seemed too good to be true, but the items shipped and arrived within like 6 days and everything was of good quality and really nice! I love Burberry and use to only buy from the official site but this place has got me hooked! I'm in Texas in the USA and will definitely be shopping with them again! (DKNY size 14/16 runs a tad small compared to Target but good quality. Only ordered a loose shirt and leggings.)
Trust in top-class quality and you can be sure that your offspring is always dressed accordingly. If you want to impart a good dress sense and a proper style permanently to your daughter or your son, it is best, if you start early in doing so. The designers use high-quality and sometimes exotic materials, so that your child will develop a feeling for the exceptional things at an early stage. The haptic and the wearability of children’s fashion speak for themselves. Instead of buying clothes off the peg, which sometimes radiates a certain uniformity, you are buying the best thing possible for your offspring with designer children’s fashion. We are covered in clothes all day every day, thus it should be as good as possible.
