These last few weeks have been busy ones full of loveliness. This time last week we had just got back from Bubble London, a trade fair for children's wear designers. We love our children's portrait work and were delighted to be able to attend Bubble to see and photograph some of the wonderful children's brands that are out there. The event was in the Islington Business Design Centre. We arrived on Monday morning on a very sunny glorious London day.
Bubble London present Rising Star awards to the best new brands at the show. Those shortlisted included ABC123me, a new boyswear brand of California cool clothing, Tails and Tales - fairytale inspired clothes for boys and girls, and handmade sandals by Pixie Toes, amongst others. Plumeti Rain were the overall winners of the Rising Star Awards which was very well deserved - such beautiful girls dresses made with gorgeous soft and natural fabrics. To be honest, the brands were all amazing.
I absolutely fell in love with these cotton dresses by Poppy - each dress tells a story of a little girl called Poppy and her dog Fred and comes with a story book - adorable! They also make dresses for big girls too which I was delighted to hear :)

There was a Homegrown section for those brands that are designed and manufactured in the UK. There were some gorgeous brands here including Maggie G, Raspberry Plum and Pixie Dixie to name but a few.
We didn't have time to take pictures of them all, sadly, but hopefully these images will give you a feel for the wonderful array of products and talent that was there.
