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.

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!

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."

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."
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.
Yelena Pukay, an Oregon-based personal shopper and mother of four, has amassed an Instagram following of more than 34,000 thanks to her snaps of her youngest daughter Jasmin's daily outfits (her other kids make appearances too, but the baby is the star of the feed). At nine months old, Jasmin's wardrobe includes a seemingly endless collection of cashmere cardigans and rompers, which Pukay buys mostly from Parisian brands like Oscar et Valentine and Bonpoint, a Moncler puffer bought on sale, and, along with her sisters, a Dolce and Gabbana swimsuit printed with banana leaves. Her signature accessory — if a baby can have such a thing — is a cashmere pom-pom hat, many versions of which are documented on her feed, and which Pukay says women constantly ask her about (many of Jasmin's are by British brand Mi Loves and retail for £26, or about $34).

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.

Designer of children’s fashion design models that are tailored to children’s needs. Still all of the pieces carry the designer’s thumbprint and are a reflection of the hot international runway trends. If a label is known for its playful designs and eye-catching accessories, you can be sure to find a reflection of that in the little one’s collection, although in a way that is more suitable for children and for daily use. It is the same with trendy colours, which shape the label’s image. Obviously, our shop has the perfect festive children’s to offer. That might be a neat suit and a smart tie, or a precious dress, made out of velvet and silk. You will find the designs for a successful festive day.

Leading the way are a coterie of precocious celebrity style stars: North West in her teensy custom Balmain jackets (a collection she started amassing long before the label officially launched childrenswear last June), $3,500 furs, and Vetements dresses; Blue Ivy Carter in her Gucci wardrobe, complete with party frocks, embroidered denim jackets, and logo handbags; Harper Beckham in her posh Chloé tops, Burberry coats and Ferragamo ballet flats; and the impeccably clad royal children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
While generations past may not have commemorated monthly baby milestones on Instagram, the idea of dressing kids up in their nicest clothes to show them off in public is a fairly traditional one. Yuliya Pugach, a mom of three girls, ages 4, 3 and 16 months, in Columbus, Ohio, says she's happy to spend more on dressy pieces for daughters to wear for church on Sundays. Dresses by Burberry or Chloé with little Louis Vuitton purses to hold their snacks (her husband bought one for each of them as a gift) help make up their collections. "I love investing in their church clothes because that's when I feel they should look their very best," she says. But while you might think that having three daughters would mean you could rely on hand-me-downs, Pugach says that's not always the case. "They do get some things, like the nicer designer clothes that aren't stained yet, but not as much as people would expect," she explains. "When I was pregnant with my second and third daughters, everyone always told me how lucky I was that they can wear hand-me-downs and save me a lot of money, but a lot of their clothes don't stand the test of time." The Burberry dresses she's bought are her favorite, she says, because they've held up the best; the family also has matching swimsuits by the brand.

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."

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.

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.
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.

She and Ward Durrett have three children each and cite the frustrations of shopping for them as their inspiration for launching the platform. "The process of shopping for your young children is incredibly tedious," says Ward Durrett. "You have to go to a number of websites to get the things you need for your kids — you're at a shoe site, you're at another site for pants, you're at another site for a special occasion dress. It's a disaggregated market, and it's incredibly inefficient. And when you're a mom, you have the least amount of time in your life." The aim of Maisonette, then, is to be a one-stop shop for apparel, accessories, toys, decor and more, all aimed at a style-conscious consumer who values quality as much as they value convenience. The parent demographic is also a smart target for an e-commerce venture: According to a recent study by Big Commerce, parents spend 75 percent more time online shopping each week, and spend more of their budget online in comparison to non-parents.
