DotToDot: AND THE WINNERS ARE…
Collezioni Bambini awards three prizes in occasion of the 10th edition of Dot To Dot in London
A colourful fashion-forward collection with just the right amount of original prints and features by Bébébébé. An intriguing debut collection, with wonderful handcrafted details, that perfectly and ingeniously combines fashion with learning by Teasy Shiruo Sun. The Hugg® Crib, a beautifully designed and crafted item of furniture with a great range of multiple uses by bababou®. “Choosing the winners was as easy as one, two, three”, reveals Peppe Orrù, London Contributing Editor for all the Collezioni printed and digital publications, who selected the winners in the three categories of Best Fashion Collection, Best Emerging Label and Best Non-Fashion Collection with Nicole Frobusch and Carly Gledhill. “The decision making process was extremely quick, almost immediate: we instantly agreed on the winners who received a one year digital subscription to Collezioni Bambini and a beautiful rosette created exclusively by the London brand Their Nibs”, reiterate the co-founders and co-owners of the London-based independent childrenswear trade show Dot To Dot.
“As far as I am concerned, every single exhibitor at this small but perfectly formed trade show in London, not only at this very special 10th edition but also at very single one of the previous editions, is a winner. Nicole and Carly always do a super excellent job in selecting, from across the entire planet, only the very best independent labels” continues Peppe. “I was fascinated by the scope in terms of originality, variety and commercial appeal of the Spring/Summer 2019 collection by Bébébébé, the South Korean brand that debuted in 2016. Completely intrigued by the debut project by Teasy Shiruo Sun, a recent graduate from Parsons School of Design in New York, who created unique pieces with exquisitely intricate details that are not just garments but also toys and learning tools. Totally captivated by the choice of materials, including Forest Stewardship Council certified birch and ash and OEKO-TEX® and GOTS certified organic cotton and bamboo, by the beauty of the design and by the versatility of use of the organic Hugg® Crib, which turns from a bedside crib to a table with bench, by Irish design firm babobou®”.
