Denver, CO, February 18, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Whimsical designer, Holli Gibson, is launching her new, highly anticipated line of couture clothing for children, available only through retail stores.
Gibson is preparing for the upcoming launch of LamanBlu, a wholesale clothing line which includes couture children’s sportswear and mother/daughter dresses, along with select accessories. The debut collection will be sold in upscale specialty boutiques across the US for Fall 2009.
Gibson created LamanBlu to celebrate the harmony of childhood and parenthood. Her collection is styled for the parent and child who want something uniquely beautiful, fashionable and comfortable. Keeping with her philosophy, only the highest quality of fabrics are chosen, with attention to the eco-impact those choices have. Her sportswear based collection gives customers the ability to pick and choose the pieces that will enhance their own unique look. Select styles are also available in adult sizing. “Mother-daughter dressing has always been in vogue, though stylelistically it has been focused on the adult wearing a larger version of a child’s dress. I wanted to take the beautiful concept of mother-daughter dressing and update it with a modern, grown up aesthetic. These are dresses that are designed to make a statement on their own, and when you bring them together, the result is enchanting,” says Gibson.
From her design studio in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Gibson has called LamanBlu’s debut collection “Being the Fabulous”. It is a sportswear based collection in a sumptuous and silky eco-friendly bamboo knit fabric. “The color palette of this collection has deep expansiveness and muted tones with a subtle richness,” says Gibson. “In many ways, this collection was inspired by the frozen surfaces of winter, from the smooth, soft snow blanketing the hillsides, to the positively brilliant snow crystals which sparkle in the moonlight, as brilliantly as any diamond. I always crave fabrics with a soft, sumptuous hand to curl up with in the winter, and the bamboo knit of this collection fills the bill perfectly, along with the cashmere tam to top everything off.” To accent against the soft knit, there is a sparkle organza and an embroidered and beaded lace. According to Stahl’s Color Forecasting service, “Unexpected Poetry moves into the mysterious realm of hypnotic dark colors, colors that are strongly reminiscent of the long dark evenings to come as winter progresses. However, other aspects of winter, snow, ice and frost lead to a panorama of colors that are timeless and even seasonless.” This is an apt description of LamanBlu’s debut line.
Gibson brings breadth and depth of apparel manufacturing experience, working with boutiques and major chains alike. Gibson’s understanding of retail floor sales presentation and seasonal transitions are an advantage for retailers seeking growth. LamanBlu’s debut collection encourages creativity of layering, with pieces designed not only to enhance the customer’s personal style but also to provide retailers with the much needed add-on sales during these difficult economic times. LamanBlu is currently seeking brick and mortar partners for launch celebrations in major US cities.
