In a city as progressive as our beloved Charleston, all the fun isn’t limited to the big kids. Especially when it comes to fashion.
B.b. Children’s Clothing is the design line of Barbara Beach, a Charlestonian who picked up her knack for children’s clothing designs from a clothing swap a few years prior. B.b. Children’s Clothing is inspired by vintage fabrics and colors, but with contemporary designs kiddos love.
Beach showed her collection Tuesday night at Charleston Fashion Week as part of the Southeast Emerging Designer Competition, wowing the crowd – and more importantly the judges – with her runway ready children’s wear. The clothes were so great, in fact, that they stood out even beyond the “awwww”-invoking mini-models skipping down the runway. One Fashion Week goer asks if that yellow coat comes in her size.
Beach made it to the top 3 finalists for this year’s competition and walked away with the overall People’s Choice award. A new generation of children’s wear has officially arrived.
Kids Yoga at Holy Cow may not be quite as rigorous as your hot vinyasa class, but the kids will certainly love it. The class meets Saturday mornings at 9:30am and teaches children the importance of focus while also getting them stretching and exercising in a fun laid back environment. Tiny yoga mats not required.
Fine (Pint-Sized) Dining might sound a little hard to come by – really, how many variations of peanut butter and jelly are there? – but many Charleston fine dining restaurants feature scaled down children’s menus for their youngest clients. Halls Chophouse even features their children’s menu on the website, and if the kids version of their hamburger is half as delicious as the adult version, juniors will be sold.
Redux Art Programs are as diverse as they come, from stamps to art history to even a class that combines art with math. Teach a child the importance of art early on and they’ll be gallery hopping with the best of them in no time. Redux kids classes are offered throughout the week with member discounts.
So have fun with the little ones. And give a good ‘ole chocolate milk toast to a town that embraces everyone…big and small.
