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.

AW13 for kids is here!

Our shop and our website are now filled with lots of beautiful Autumn Winter Kids Clothes. There are lots of corals & greys from one of our most popular  brands from last winter, Danish Aya Naya. Aya Naya design girls clothes which are stylish but also practical, with elasticated necklines and arms & soft and comfortable fabrics. Already in the first week of having the clothes in the shop it is yet again proving to be popular.

We then have greys and reds/corals from Little Duckling whose designer brings a mix of Scandinavian & British influences together. The designs are more classic in look but again with a practical comfortable fit to them.


Frugi and Kitekids are both colourful, fun and organic practical kids clothes. Both are British designed, family owned businesses. Frugi is a new brand for us, we are in our second season with them, following a successful first one. Kitekids are one of our original favourites!

Summers here!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I don’t want to speak too soon, but now having had at least 3 days of glorious sunshine, could this finally be the start of our summer here in the UK?! My girls have been wearing summer dresses for the last few days. We’ve started each day with pedal pusher leggings underneath, which is a great way of keeping off the morning chill, yet easy enough to take off when the day warms up.  One of the brands I sell, Kitekids design pedal pusher leggings every summer.  Raspberry Red has stocked them for the last 3 years as they are so popular, practical yet pretty! Another popular one for Raspberry Red is South African Keedo, this is the third season of stocking their summer dresses. Made from beautiful thin floaty cotton. Their dresses are so light and easy for girls to wear in warm weather. There are lots of other gorgeous summer dresses on the Raspberry Red website from Little Duckling, myCinnamonGirl, Keedo, Kitekids and Phister & Philina. Some of them are pictured in the slideshow above.
