Childrensalon is an award-winning independent internet retailer for children's designer clothing and gifts.

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."
They've also introduced the brand to a new whole new set of customers. "We have totally reached a new audience with the mini line," says Parikka. "Before, our shoes were mainly for a trendy crowd, and now with the mini we reach customers from 0 to 70 years old. I think our oldest customer has actually been way over 90." After all, who can't appreciate a tiny sneaker with rabbit ears for a tongue and a pom-pom tail?
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.
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."
This is also an area where a rapid growth spurt can actually work in parents' favor. "If you buy it one season and the next season they've grown out of it, it's still considered an in-season item," she explains. "If you were to go and sell it, you will see a good return on the item." Not every typical resale rule applies to childrenswear, though: "Designer handbags are our bread and butter for women's," she says, "[but] for children's, it's not even on the map. It's a tiny piece of our business."
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!

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

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.
“ Today we received the shoes, we are pleased to madness, and what a smell of the shoes (Mini Melissa). My daughter doesn't want to take them off, the size is a little too big but should be nice for the summer. The quality is excellent. Thank you so much, I will now be ordering from you and will promote to my friends, we are satisfied with everything. Сегодня получили туфельки, рады до безумия, а какой запах. Дочка не снимает, размер чуть великоват но и хорошо летом будет ходить. Качество отличное. Огромное вам спасибо, буду теперь с вами сотрудничать и рекламировать знакомым, всем очень довольны. Спасибо за подарочек - конфетки. ”

Others still are poised to enter the fray in the coming months: Givenchy's inaugural childrenswear collection hits shelves this summer, and both Emilio Pucci Kids and a newly relaunched Roberto Cavalli Junior will debut for Spring 2018. The retail space is evolving, too. In March, former Vogue editors Sylvana Ward Durrett and Luisana Mendoza launched Maisonette, a Farfetch-style platform that allows customers to shop a curated selection from children's boutiques around the world, and last year, Farfetch itself entered the category, since expanding to carry over 10,000 items from 20 different countries. Clearly, there are plenty of parents who are shelling out for high-end wardrobes for their broods, but who are they? And why invest in an expensive outfit that likely won't fit in six months, or shoes that are liable to be kicked off in a stroller?

This is also an area where a rapid growth spurt can actually work in parents' favor. "If you buy it one season and the next season they've grown out of it, it's still considered an in-season item," she explains. "If you were to go and sell it, you will see a good return on the item."

Globally, the childrenswear market is outpacing both womenswear and menswear, growing 5 percent in current value terms in 2016 to $203.4 billion, according to Euromonitor. Designer childrenswear is only a small portion of the total industry at $5.89 billion, but the research house cites trends that suggest it could grow. For instance, parents today tend to have fewer children later in life, at a time when many have more disposable income, and fashion trends play an ever-greater role in influencing what — and how often — they purchase.

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.)

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.

Paris-based Vestiaire Collective currently has more than 28,000 kids' items listed — a sizable number, though only a fraction of the 600,000 items on the site at any given time. Outerwear is the site's top-performing children's category in terms of sales, according to U.S. curator Sydney Locker, with items like a Gucci shearling-lined embroidered denim jacket ($1,141.20), Baby Dior coat ($741.78) and Moncler snowsuit ($707.54) filling the upper end of the price range. More than 50 percent of the site's children's business is in France — a much greater share than in other categories, but Locker says she expects this to shift as the resale industry grows and awareness increases globally.

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.
