What a glorious Autumn afternoon picnic we had to help showcase some of our gorgeous girls designer clothing online at La Torina,and in our shop in Bath Lane Bendigo. The day was perfect; a warm day that started cooling off in the afternoon. The glorious Autumn colours of a golden pallet and a perfect backdrop and setting at Chateau Dore Winery in Bendigo.
I loved styling this shoot and used the inspiration from many books and a few inspiring people I have been so lucky to come into contact with, including Sharnel Dollar Designs, (where this gorgoues table cloth was made) Bubble and Sweet and “Missy Tiana”, to name a couple.
The adorable little models (all customers kids) were radiant and had lots of fun, thank you to Meg, Jayde, Matisse and Tiana and their mums who came along. A huge Thank You to Chateau Dore Winery for allowing us to shoot at this amazing place and to Alison at Lollypop Photography for yet another gorgeous shoot and photo’s.
What a stunning classic photo. The magestic Jaguar car is perfect for the setting, and brides-to-be who are looking to get married should check out Chateau Dore (and you need to book in early) have an opportunity to use one of their gorgeous cars on the day! Chateau Dore is a wonderful place for any special occasion.
Tiana looks quite regal here playing the cello, wearing a Mini Treasure kids dress called “Hayley” $89.95, which also comes in a stately red tonings as well. Sweet Meg is wearing another Mini Treasure Kids dress called “Ebony flocking dress” $89.95 (also comes in chocolate), that matches in with the Mini Treasure Kids black Allira leggings $39.95 (which also come on cream). Little Meg is wearing a Tippie Toes Couture headband $19.95.

The quality is simply stunning, with dresses being lined and adorned with quality materials and trims. Girls and boys designer clothing from 000 – 12 yrs old. Can check them out online at La Toriana.
Myrtle & Grace make their debut at La Toriana this week, and we just love this girls designer clothing collection, that we just know you will too. Its a high end kids fashion label thats sure to make a mark in the Australian Childrens Fashon industry
Many of the Myrtle & Grace designer children’s wear are **exclusive ** to La Toriana including the Milla dress above. The softest Hail Spot Cotton with silky satin trim tie and bias with hand dyed vintage style lace trim hem in white or ivory tea. So soft, quality, and definitely makes a statement in the vintage inspired girls clothing arena. I especially love the fact Rachael, the designer from Myrtle and Grace is a ‘local” and we plan to catch up often and bring you exciting and exclusive designs we just know you are going to love, plus an interview with the designer herself coming up to hear about what inspires her creativity.
The “Milla Dress” $59.95, is perfect for girls 6 months up to 10 years. Comes in a soft white with white, elegant lace on the trim, and satin tie ribbons at the shoulder. Also comes in a soft cream/ivory colour with a delicate ecru elegant lace trim on bottom. Ideal as a special occasion dress, flowergirl dresses, christening, Christmas dress, birthday and confirmation and communion dress. The Milla dress, plus the pretty Pink “all things nice” dress and a couple special delights will be in store the start of August ready for Spring/Summer season. Watch out for new releases soon and you can pre order by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org telling me what colour style etc you are after. We have already sold 3 dresses since our release photo on facebook for confirmation/communion dresses.
Must be feeling sentimental (again..!!) and penned this above piece whilst I had a day at home on my own, looking through lots of stunning children’s designer clothing photo’s from the last couple shoots with Alison from Lollypop photography … and my own little baby!
I cannot believe my little baby is growing up so quick. She will be 9 years old this year…. time has really flown fast. I love the fact that Tiana loves classical music, and she definitely has an ear and flair for it.
This dress that Tiana is modelling above is an **exclusive** dress to La Toriana, the “Esther” from Myrtle & Grace, $59.95, available in size 6 mths to 10 years. This Australian children’s clothing designer uses only quality materials, trims and laces, with many hand dyed fabrics and styles that are unique. Many of the girls designer dresses are transeasonal that are pretty on own in the warmer weather, and pretty plus functional when layered in the cooler weather. Available now **LIMITED EDITION** instore and on the La Toriana website.
It’s elegant, relaxed and has a real vintage appeal. Tiana also loves this Esther dress (though not as much as her shorts, tees and gumboots), which is great we agree. I love the lace and ribon and of course the rose pattern material. We BOTH love roses !
The headband is ivory rosette from Tippie Toes Couture and was a real hit amongst all the girls on the day. It comes in 3 colours, a rose/blush pink, an antique white and a soft latte colour. $19.95 and comes in 3 sizes to suit girls of all ages.
The Three Little Trees Winter kids fashion collection for 2011 is nothing short of gorgeous. Here Matisse models the VERY popular Melbourne dress $49.95 teamed with the charcoal footless tights $19.95. I LOVE this colour for Winter and its proven to be one of the most popular girls designer clothing for the season by Three Little Trees. My Fav however is the pink Manhattan dress that Meg is wearing here. Its a knit dress $54.95 and really is a transeasonal item. Also goes brilliantly with the charcoal footless tights from Three Little Trees.
Matisse looks amazing here, and Alison has caught a magical moment that’s just beautiful. The matching rose headband is truly a gorgeous match top this dress by Small Society.
Another debut kids fashion designer clothing label to La Toriana this season is Small Society. I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it. Its the Earth dress and available in the 2 colours, a blush dusky pink and a soft grey/green. This dress can be worn in summer and also layered for winter, and when it gets short for a dress can be worn as a longer top. The adjustable button feature at the back allows for growth and is a clear winner this season at $59.95. Matisse above also wears the Tippie Toes couture rosette headband in blush pink, $19.95.
I must thank “Esther” who helped sew up my buntin when I had no sewing machine and little time. The materials are all remnants from when i was making my very first nursery exactly 10 years ago in May, it was for the twin girls room… and I had packed it all away, in a sealed box which I recently returned to. Its also mixed in with pieces of materials left over from some of Tiana’s clothes and cushions from when she was born, so its truly a very special bunting full of love and memories. When I was cutting it out I was wanting something that was different, special and full of meaning… this was perfect and gorgeous Esther helped make it all come together… THANK YOU gorgeous Esther!
Thank you to all the models, Alison at Lollypop Photography, Chateau Dore, the models mums and the supermarket who made the cake. (Sorry, I really need bubble and sweet down this way! but alas can you tell what type of cake it is?)
Also thanks to the designer kids clothing businesses listed above, as these all are gorgeous Winter collections of designer kids clothing in Australia in 2011, and I am so proud to be able to showcase them at La Toriana online and in store.
