Tootsa Mac Ginty launches with an Autumn/Winter 2011 collection!
Kate Pietrasik, the creative visionary behind this new and exciting range believes that the world is filled with color and that nothing is ever impossible! Having worked in the fashion industry in France and Australia she finally moved back to the UK last year with her muse, her baby daughter. Since then she has taken it upon herself to create a neutral, non gender based unisex line of clothing for kids called Tootsa Mac Ginty.
It is indeed a refreshing change to see this collection filled with bright bold colors that are by no means restricted to boys or girls. You won’t see the over sweet candy pinks for the girls or sludgy colors claiming to be especially catered for the boys. What you see here is a fun, and playful collection which is not afraid to embrace color and showcase the playful nature of childhood!
It’s obvious that Kate loves her colors and she she knows her fabrics. The collection uses some fine composition of fabrics that will surely hold well for more than a few seasons. They are all pre washed and treated to ensure that little sensitive skins that don them will be more than happy to be seen in them all day through. There are no slogans or adult mimicking styles in this collection, she has stayed true to the spirit of childhood. Each piece has its own unique identity through the applique embroidery on it. This first collection from the Tootsa Mac Ginty line involves a lot of fun characters your little ones will relate to like Hedgehogs, foxes, badgers , owls and puffins.
The Autumn/Winter 2011 collection consists of Sweatshirts. T-shirts, Jumpers, Cardigans, Leggings, Dresses , Denim and Dungarees. They come in sizes from 3 months upto 5 years and will be available for purchase beginning July. I personally love the simplicity of the range and how beautifully each piece is crafted paying close attention to detail using contrast tapes, appliques, patches, and even fun pocket linings. Now that’s what I call an eye for design, it’s not loud and in your face…it’s almost a tease! Kudos Kate… We look forward to many more fun collections from you!
