... La Miniatura... I'm in love!

... La miniatura was created by designer Jeffrey Sebelia and entrepreneur Melissa Bochco. I have just discovered this brand and I'm in love already! La Miniatura look is drawn from the late 70's to early 80's post-punk, re-interpreted through the lens of current trends and classic details for kids. Jeffrey was discovered through season 3 of Project Runway which he ended up winning. and after a few years of designing clothes for adults, he decided to bring his edgyness to kids clothing.When questioned about the line's lush red and black velvet suits, plaid blazers and sophisticated trench coats and sweaters compared to the easy-in easy-out sweat pants moms are begrudgingly forced to stick their boys in today, Jeffrey's only reply -- "I just want my kid to be able to dress with some dignity!"
