HC Mods Listings

I was searching for items to be featured in HC blog this morning, and I came accross some that really caught my eyes, and somehow they happened to be the listings from HC mods.

The first two is from designer boutique*layceeloo. I really love the way she plays, mixes and matches the fabrics. Her garments are always so fun.



The last one is from designer sweetpea*boutique04. I saw this garment in person and I have to say that I LOVE the prints on the skirt, and she used just the right design for it. Not to mention the wonderful craftmanship.

HC Designer Features: victoryskids

And talking about tween, here's one that's not only beautiful but she's also super talented. HC designer victoryskids mentioned in her auction that this set is modeled AND designed by her grand daughter.

Look at how fabulous this 2 pc set is and you would never thought that it was designed by this cute girl. I think she will have a very bright future in fashion design and I think grandma needs to get her her own ebay acct. so she can start designing her own line :). I'm sure there will be tons of people would love to buy her garments. Who knows what's hot in tween fashion than the tweens themselves.

Two thumbs way up for this little designer, and don't let this set get away, get it here:

Fashion for Tween

Market for tween fashion is booming, and it reaches in the billions of dollars. Some of designers might consider to dip in a little bit in this. I know I've thought about it. But I don't know much about what's hot in tween fashion.

Here are some pictures from Pitti Bimbo 2008 Fall/Winter fashion show. It kind of give us designers or parents who have tween some ideas of what is hot in tween fashion.

HC Designer Features: littlemissdesireev and bellajoys*boutique

Isn't animal prints fun? Although I LOVE animal prints, it could be really tricky to use it for children's garment. You want to capture the edgy and fun side of it, but at the same time you don't want to make it look too grown up or you don't want to make your little ones look like what my husband said "Peggy Bundy".

Here are a couple of HC designers who successfully incorporate animal prints in children's garment and accessories.

First is the designer littlemissdesireev. The zebra prints in this 3 pc set is paired with black and white and pink prints that have bohemian or vintage feel to it. She really did a great job mixing and matching these prints, because they really just compliment each other.

The garments will be custom made from sizes 6m - 6. And you can find this here:

And pair the fabulous set with the fabulous bows by bellajoys*boutique.
