What sweet and chic style from Mademoiselle à Soho for their Spring/Summer 2012 range. I met with the lovely Alexana Bussenault of Mas at Playtime recently and was taken immediately with everything they do and the fascinating story behind her label: from a highly theatrical Romanian family, she has created a joyous mix of her Romanian and French roots and blended it with New York flair! I love the slightly poofy silhouette of these paper bagged waisted skirts – looks like the little ones would keep cool in those while still looking fab and comfortable. And it’s always great to see boys in lots of color! You can shop here online or visit her store in Soho!
The first Bellissima Tutu workshop at Books of Wonder was a great success! The kids had lots of fun, really stuck with the process and made their beautiful tutus..and then they had a ball dancing around in them because that’s what tutus are for, right?! Some of them escaped before we could take their photo and the little boy holding the tutu in the photos told me to make it very clear that he was making that for his sister and not for himself. So, consider yourselves told! I will keep you updated on the next workshop.
And if your little angel missed this (and will miss them all because you live far away) and you would like to have a Bellissima Kids Tutu Making Kit, I am offering you the opportunity to purchase them right from this site! Just email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to order one. That’s a close-up of what they look like in the photo above. All materials and full instructions for this “no-sew” tutu are included as well as a Bkids tote bag!
