We visited CIFF KIDS in January and got a good sneak peek of the Autumn/Winter Collections for next Fall. CIFF KIDS was a real blast if you ask our girls. We brought them a long for the first day of the fair and they took in the fair by scooters, that where on display at the fair, while we took the press tour around the show and tried to keep track of them. Tradeshows are a lot about the big money exchange, but for us as a magazine, you know we come there to find trends and inspiration for upcoming themes. The girls were dressed in their matching dresses from the and were on their best and sweetest enfants terribles behaviour.
The venue had changed to Forum this time and we quite liked the new setup for the fair as well as the big walls that created an intimate feeling when visiting and viewing the different labels at the fair. Our trend editor Kirsi wrote a trend forecast report for CIFF KIDS, that you can read here. We saw many grown up styles for kids and a lot of greys and blacks - but luckily there were also designers being playful, quirky and different - which you know we looove.
The trend show at the fair was also a fun experience for us and the girls. Good energy, happy music and inspiring visuals from the film Hugo. The theme varied over a French alps/Austrian tyrol/ Nordic Skiing trip with huuuge moonbots and very cute kids.
See you next season CIFF KIDS<3
