Boutique Street is the new kid on the block when it comes to trade fairs but it is shaping up to be an amazing exhibition with wonderful brands choosing to showcase their wares at the inaugural event. With a goal to create a trade event that took the focus back to brands and helped them manage their wholesale relationships effectively, Emma, from cult brand Homely Creatures, has joined forces with Hayley & Shane from This Little Love to launch Boutique Street.
We took a look at some of the labels exhibiting next week and found these gems to share with Peekaboo readers.
We Might Be Tiny’s ethos is to create products that are not only simplistic in design but also functional and practical. Their first product is a range of gorgeous placemats available in various colours and characters. Made from a toxic-free, food grade silicone, these placemats are non-slip and dishwasher safe, making them a practical addition to your dinner table.
Sunny & Finn are a funky kids’ brand creating hip apparel and accessories including to-die-for leather boots with interchangeable cuffs. Their Babygotback toddler backpacks rock some serious style with geometric prints and mono styles as well as collabs with Leo + Boy.
This brand will knock your socks off – literally! Featuring the cutest line up of critters for your toes, Billy Loves Audrey also has a gorgeous collection of hats including gorgeous felt cat hats and a beautiful doe on the way. Socks are a 75% cotton blend and include fox, rabbit, raccoon, pirate, dinosaur and two cat styles. I wish those hats with the pom poms came in adult sizes!
Halcyon Nights burst onto the scene in 2015 with their inaugural kids’ bedding collection which included my favourite print, Rainbow Mountain. This season they’re back with new prints including Outback Dreamers in not only kids’ bed linen but clothing as well.
I’m in love with these awesome neon lights by Electric Confetti. They are super cool and my boys would love them! Electric Confetti was created to bring the fun of advertising neon into the home and is based in Melbourne and the best thing is they do custom designs.
Boutique Street is being held in an old timber works factory at 183 Laurens Street, North Melbourne from 5th – 7th August. Industry peeps can register online to attend.
