Baby Celebration LA provides latest designer trends for infants & babies

April 09, 2008 - United States Of America

Over 30 up-and-coming fashion houses and boutique children’s designers from Beverly Hills to the Netherlands will unveil their latest spring and fall collections worn by models eighteen months to five years old at the “Sweet Petites and Tiny Treats” fashion show this weekend during Baby Celebration LA on April 12 and 13.

The Sweet Petites and Tiny Treats baby and toddler fashion show is one of the only fashion shows of its kind that hosts an international collection of boutique children’s apparel designers who will come together and showcase luxury, ready-to-wear trends and fine baby fashions. Baby Celebration LA provides the public with a chance to view the latest designer trends for infants and babies, before they become main stream.

Baby Celebration LA is an annual celebration of babies and toddlers which offers the largest collection of boutique, hard-to-find, luxury products and services to expectant moms and new parents looking for an alternative to mass merchandise. This event is held at the Los Angeles Convention Center April 12-13.

Candy land meets rock ’n roll when fresh up-and-coming designers like the rockin’ mod trends of Dandy Social Club, the multifaceted floral dresses and one of a kind fabrics from BabyLuLu, the born to rock fashions of SlickSugar, as well as more than two dozen other designers come together to debut their latest fashions. Many designers at the show have adorned some of the best dressed children of celebrities including Gillian Anderson, Brooke Burke and Jenna Elfman.

“With more and more trendy boutiques catering specifically to babies and young children, we want to give the public a chance to view some of this season’s fashion delights,” said Patrice Meluskey, co-producer Baby Celebration LA. “This is our exclusive fashion show that truly does bring together, for the public, the largest collection of unique, boutique baby and toddler fashions.”

Last year, Baby Celebration LA attracted 15,000 plus attendees, and is expected to attract over 20,000 this year. This event will feature LA’s Nanny of the Year Contest, a $50,000 Edible Eco Garden with a Sustainable, Renewable and Bio Degradable Playhouse and a $3,000 Stroller with iPod Integration, Wood Dashboard and Under-Carriage Lighting.

There will also be the hottest urban toddler hip hop wear, Swarovski crystal pacifiers and some of the most sought after sweatshop-free, earth-conscious clothing on the market today, all in a comfortable expectant mommy and baby-friendly environment.

“During my last pregnancy I realized how difficult it was to find modern, stylish outfits and the hottest new products for me and my baby all under one roof, and that led to the idea of Baby Celebration LA,” said Penny Domschot, co-producer Baby Celebration LA.

“As a work-at-home mom myself, I need to be efficient with my time. I understand the difficulties of traveling all over town carrying a child on your arm or in your tummy on a mission to find the latest baby luxuries. This event brings the best of the best together under one roof so you don’t have to dress your masterpiece in mass merchandise.”

Penny Domschot and Patrice Meluskey are both work-at-home moms who co-own, an event production company. After creating the San Diego Interior Design & Landscape Expo, a wildly successful event that changed the face of consumer trade shows, they sold it to DMG World Media, an international exhibition and publishing company with revenues of $293 million, and made a name for themselves without sacrificing their ability to actively parent their children.
