Kite wins Childrenswear Brand Award

One of our lovely brands that we have been selling for nearly 4 years now have won the NatWest UK Fashion & Textile Childrenswear brand Award. The announcement was made on the 22nd May 2014 at a high profile red carpet ceremony in London.

Kite sent us this message saying Kite entered the Childrenswear Brand Award which was a category open to any established childrenswear brand and where judges were looking for creativity, a strong brand proposition, a dedicated following in the UK and overseas, and good sales growth.

Roger Hakes, Director, who collected the award from Susanna Reid and Jo Wood, said: “I’m delighted to receive this award on behalf of the whole Kite team. We’re thrilled to have been recognised for our achievements over the past 12 months: we grew our sales by more than 50% and now serve more than 300 stockists across 20 countries. The key to our success has been our focus on producing fabulous collections for our consumers – every garment we design and make is packed with original and thoughtful details, manufactured to the highest quality and produced with the lowest environmental impact.”

Kite is one of our most popular brands because of the fabulous colours they use and the sheer comfort of the styles they create. The clothes are a beautiful quality, which wash well and can usually be passed on to another child. Raspberry Red stocks Kite from age 0 to 9 years for boys and girls.

Aya Naya girls clothes

Bohemian and romantic,  Danish Aya Naya was one of our best selling girls clothes brands from last winter. This winter they are proving to be just as popular. Their style appeals to both the parent and the child as they design clothes which are stylish and a bit more grown up looking which the girls like, but without being provocative which the mums like.  On many occasion we have also been asked if Aya Naya design ladies clothes as the Mums would like some of the items for themselves!

A typical winter Aya Naya design isn’t tight, is made from fabrics which are soft, comfortable and floaty, and uses muted colours such as grey, brown and navy. Many mothers are telling us their daughters of five and above don’t want to wear the cute young looking clothes that they still want to buy for them but that they find it hard to find clothes which aren’t more suited to teens. This gap in the market seems to be being fulfilled by Aya Naya. Parents love Aya Naya because their girls love it and it maintains the innocence of children.
