Everything for today’s infant who goes
Every year the top designers unveil their latest fashion creations for
the little people of the world. This doesn’t mean fashion designs for
the Warwick Davises and Billy Bartys of the world, nor those who don’t
make in a year what Paris Hilton leaves for a tip after lunch at Sardi’s.
The little ones that the fashion gurus design for are infants and designer
baby clothes, as bizarre as the concept seems, grow more popular each
year. Despite the fact that the child will outgrow the garments in very
little time, well to do parents love to ooh and aah over fashionable
items designed by the likes of Christian Dior, Kimora Lee, and others.
The top fashion houses produce body suits, bibs, booties, and bonnets
that are soft to the touch, beautiful to behold, cost many times more
than the typical Kmart baby outfit and are just waiting to be urpped
on by a baby suffering from colic.
Perhaps the best known line of designer wear for infants comes from
Christian Dior. Dubbed Baby Dior, the line includes items like the sweet
100% cotton Dior baby body suit with pink or blue snaps, the Dior teddy
bear logo on the chest, and a price tag of $55.00 from E Luxury dot
com. The site is nice enough to point out that parents who find this
item attractive may also like the $115.00 Baby Dior hooded towel.
Leave it to Rap pioneer and Def Jam records founder Russell Simmons
to innovate a way to bring a bit of bling into the nursery. To promote
his Phat Farm line of men’s hip-hop styles, Simmons had a number of
small tee shirts designed with the legend “Baby Phat” printed on them.
The shirts were donned by female celebrities and models and garnered
quite a bit of attention. The Baby Phat line was born and Simmons made
his wife Kimora Lee the line’s creative director. Baby Phat produces
clothes for young girls (sorry, make that “girlz”) from their teens
all the way down to infancy. Baby Phat baby wear includes tees priced
from $11.00 to $18.00 and matching outfits ranging in price from $34.00
One of the latest names in baby clothes is that of famed photographer
Anne Geddes. Apparently inspired by the popularity of her famous photos
of babies dressed up as bumble bees, ladybugs, sunflowers, and rosebuds,
Geddes has launched “annegeddesbaby,” a line of clothing for infants
that will allow parents to dress their newborns as, well, bumble bees,
ladybugs, sunflowers, and rosebuds. Included are pieces like the Ladybug
Jacket ($39.50), the Bunny Suit, Hat and Booties Set ($69.50), and the
Rosebud Quilt ($29.50).
Designer baby clothes may not be the easiest thing for the more frugal
parent out there to comprehend, but they’re for real and they’re being
purchased in droves. The one nice thing about the phenomena for all
of the parents who can’t afford such infantile extravagancies (or who
just won’t pay those kinds of prices) is that the babies wearing these
labels today will outgrow them tomorrow and a lot of the items will
grace the shelves of your local Salvation Army or Goodwill store sometime
after that, bearing a pinned on price tag that reads $1.50.

later with my two beautiful babies. They were both naturally
conceived after years of “trying”. Here's how it happened…
