Our MiniHipster team are based out of Melbourne, New York, London and Barcelona, and are constantly traveling around the globe with cameras at the ready to shoot mini hipsters as we see them.
The MiniHipster StyleFiles focuses on the emerging kids fashion and childrens clothing trends that we enjoy so much. Here we present and review product, profile brands and shops from all over the world, interview designers and generally keep you updated on the most essential kids fashion developments.
Here’s a little peek into some of the current posts in their look book:
Melissa, an author at minihipster.com took the time to answer some questions about the blog, fashion trends, her fashion inspiration and even gives a little advice to all of you.
What made you want to start minihipster.com?
MinHipster was simply an extension of our passion for children’s fashion, and the enjoyment of doing something fun together while in different corners of the world. It began as a simple blog style website where we would all share the photos of the coolest little kids we came across. In talking to the parents about their child’s outfit and what we were up to, it was clear that they were also passionate about dressing their little ones in different styles and loved to get involved with the website. Further interest from throughout the community revealed a demand for an area to cover some more detailed news and information on children’s fashion, so MiniHipster.com was established with a few different sections with immense interest and fantastic support from the companies involved in the sector.
When MiniHipster.com first started out the crew would be out snapping photos of the coolest kids we’d see on the streets. Now, however, we get too many submissions from our readers that need to be prioritized. Parents absolutely love to see their kids on the website; it’s really fantastic to have that enthusiasm within the readership!
Plenty of bright colours. Lots of gorgeous Greens, Bright Blues, Oranges, Yellows. And what is exciting is that we are seeing this in both boys and girls styles. Boys are so much more accepting now of wearing colours and its refreshing to see.
Where do you get your fashion inspiration?
We are looking at a lot of online sites everyday. From blogs on general style to smaller and brand new brands as well as many online department stores from Saks.com & GAP in the US to alexandalexa in the UK, Mamakid in Hong Kong and Little Scandinavian in Northern Europe. We are looking at sites from all over the world to get an understanding of what is trending is various countries.
What advice would you give to parents shopping for their children?
As a mother of 2 boys myself, my advise would be, if you can, let them have an input in what you buy for them. You might be surprised to see what they choose and the outfits they put together themselves. Some outfits may be quirky, but if they embrace what they are wearing, then it will look cool! I also try to make sure that whatever I buy is going to be comfortable – otherwise it is usually thrown or pulled off 10 minutes after they put it on!
