New York, NY, July 11, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Children’s Club is a trade show held by ENK in New York City at the Javits Center. ENK/Children’s Club market is where all the best domestic and international buyers gather in one place; it is the largest show of its kind in the US. The show is juried and only top notch designers and companies are invited. LamanBlu™ has been on the invite list for several seasons now and they are finally ready to make their appearance. This is the next step in the company’s growth to expand their reach to specialty store buyers across the US and internationally. The show covers the market in upscale children’s clothing, infant and fashion accessories as well as footwear ranging from newborn to ages 10/12. Exhibitors come from all over the US as well as France, England, Canada, Brazil, Peru, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Spain, Belgium, Italy and Israel.
LamanBlu™ is pure American luxury. It is exquisitely beautiful apparel that is made to live in...to dance in...to play in...that children and parents adore. LamanBlu™ designs and manufactures eco-friendly contemporary apparel for every little princess and prince charming – to take them through their entire day – from holding court in the morning to fighting dragons in the afternoon. The company designs and manufactures their product entirely in the USA, much of it in Colorado. The collection debuted in 2009 to rave reviews and derives its constant inspiration from “laman blou” which means “blue sea” in Papiamentu.
LamanBlu’s mission is to Celebrate Childhood. They do this by seeing the beauty in everyday things. It is inspired by a child’s sense of wonder and their enjoyment of discovery. The collection offers beautiful yet comfortable eco-friendly clothing using the highest quality designer fabrics and exquisite detailing. It is a trend forward collection which is extensively tested for ease of care, durability, movement and comfort. The colors and prints in the collection are custom designed and exclusive to LamanBlu™. They believe in using eco-friendly fabrics, which are gentle to the environment and to a child’s delicate skin – fabrics including bamboo, organic cottons, recycled polyesters and washable linens.
“We know children insist on being comfortable and have ease of movement no matter what they’re wearing, and all of our styles go through extensive wear testing by real kids. Whether they’re twirling around the room or hanging on the monkey bars, their clothing has to move with them, and even delicate looking clothing has to be durable enough to stand up to a child’s day,” says Holli Gibson, the designer for LamanBlu™.
LamanBlu™ is also an advocate for mom’s busy lives; everything in their collection is machine washable, ironing optional. Most of their garments have adjustment points at critical areas, so that the child can wear their clothing for longer, even after a growth spurt. Another way LamanBlu™ carries out its mission to Celebrate Childhood is through supporting charities protecting children and protecting the environment for their future. They are actively involved in several charities both through direct volunteerism and financial support, including JDRF, Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and Falling Whistles. You can read more about their chosen charities on their website, www.LamanBlu.com
Holli Gibson, the designer for LamanBlu™, is an industry veteran who spent much of her career designing clothing for women out of New York and Dallas for high end retailers including Neiman Marcus and Nordstorm. She is also the recipient of The Rising Star Award for Design from Fashion Group International and of the 2011 303 Magazine Award for the Most Influential fashion folk in Denver.
