One time I found european brand shoes less than $20/pair, so I ordered 3 pairs of different kind. The shipping was very fast, I ordered on Thursday and my order arrived on Saturday the same week.

What is going to be big this year in children's clothing? Ruffles, tiers, big bows are big. Tights are still going to be big this year. As for the colors, pink and grey is still big this fall/winter, but unlike last year red was not as dominant, instead I see a lot of purple.

Daniel Vosovic Interview

Haute Couture For Kids had a wonderful opportunity to interview this cute and talented designer. So we collected questions from our members and here are Daniel’s answer.

1. When did you start designing and when do you realize that you want to do it professionally and be a designer?

Daniel: I’ve always loved design: architecture, painting, fashion, interior, etc. But didn’t officially make the commitment to fashion design until I was 18 yrs old – my first year of college. I was planning to go into graphic design at the time, but after waking up for the 4th week in a row not wanting to go to class, I made up my mind that it wasn’t for me. So I enrolled in a clothing construction course the next semester and went from making boxer shorts to cocktail dresses like that! Haha… the rest is history!

2. How do you describe your design & style and who are your favorite designers and do they influence a lot of your designs?

Daniel: A personal quote of mine is "I believe a woman can be modern and classic simultaneously." Both terms have a certain stigma attached to them, both can’t exist without the other, and I feel that very few people in this world are solely one or the other. I love clean lines, modern fit and also have an appreciation for technological advances in textiles, as well as old-world techniques. I like to describe the “Daniel Vosovic woman” as Shirley Manson horseback riding at the Polo ranch… a little rock and roll, a little classic, a little sexy, a little modern. I adore Alber Elbaz, Nicolas Ghesquière, Miuccia Prada and Kimora Lee Simmons… (wait, nix that last one) and it’s not necessarily influence I get from them, but creative inspiration.

3. Becky: When you're designing and creating garments do you follow the trends and what the market wants or do you just use your own point of views? What are good basic colors to focus on seasonally (is there a "formula" or "pattern" for seasonal colors?

Daniel: As a small designer, it’s very difficult to follow the trends that the big guys are putting out there, due to the fact that if they’re already putting it out there then it’s only a matter of time before it’s done. It’s a bit of a double-edged sword because you want your clothing to look current and modern, but not like replicas of what everything else is selling. I try to be directed by what is happening around me: my friends, editorially, films, etc, those are usually good indicators of where fashion is going – they all feed off one another. Furthermore, having an individual point of view is the MOST important part of being a fashion designer, regardless of whether or not it’s “hot” right now; you must find your customer and they will continue to come back to you whether you’re doing your version of the season’s overplayed bubble skirt, or you’re introducing a completely different silhouette. read the rest of this interview, just click here and be our member for free:
