Happy 1 year little blog of mine! I can't believe it's been a full year already... time surely does fly hu? I was updating my resume last night... getting it all ready for the move and adding Chi.qui.ti.tos on there when I realized that today was the blog's birthday... I nearly missed it! It has been an incredible year and I have learned so much more about both the children's fashion industry and blogging. I started this space out of frustration with the job market when I first moved to London. As a kidswear designer and creative at heart, I needed a way to feel connected to the industry again. And so Chi.qui.ti.tos was born, a labor of love and a home for all of my findings within kid's fashion... a place where I could be fully immersed and share my inspiration. But just like the rabbit hole, when I fell, I fell deep... and so it evolved into anything and everything having to do with the kid's world really. I have had the great pleasure of discovering (for me) new brands and thinking outside the mass produced market that I had originally come from. I found it really refreshing to see the various styles of design and how much kid's fashion has truly evolved... it can be cool if you search! Seeing how great design can trickle all the way through to decor, furnishings, and even toys has been a real eye opener. I am so thankful for all the lovely opportunities made possible by this blog... from meeting and working with some lovely designers, to covering events and exploring the journalism side of things. It's been a fun ride and I am excited to see where the blog takes me once we are back over seas! One thing is certain though, I will be returning bursting with ideas and full of new influences... a better designer all around I think. Thank you all for following along on this journey and encouraging me through sweet emails and comments... it has really meant a lot. Here's to another great year... filled with more adventures... and loads more discovering!
