Have you ever seen a Lazy Giraffe?
I, The Lazy Giraffe, was born about three years ago. My creator found herself a bit puzzled by the limited selection of kids clothes, especially in the boy's department. Since she had a background in fashion design and always did stuffs with fabric and yarn, she thought there may be room for me in the world of kids fashion.
Around the same time, I started being very curious about fabric design, mainly because I wanted to propose little dresses with crawly caterpillars or cropped pants with guinea pigs and snails (my owner is still working on some of those, but she's made some pretty nice ones with doggies and kokeshis already). I insist on having her use her own designs on her woven garments. I hear she's dreaming of the day when she'll be able to do quality fabric prints on cotton knits, but until then, she's fiercely scouting for fun, colorful knit prints.
So far, it's only been a duo, me, The Lazy Giraffe, and my creator, Natacha. She does everything, designing the fabric, making the patterns, cutting and sewing the clothes, shipping, selling, ... She's not so good at that last one, but don't tell her I said so. I'm pretty much just standing still and looking pretty (hey, I'm the LAZY Giraffe...). We have a cool space, though, a funky room in the attic with a deep carpet and nice windows. We often get visitors too, her two kids come up with their crayons and dinosaurs.
My ambition is to make comfortable and practical children clothes, garments parents will enjoy buying and not fret over, pieces children will love for their style, color, and whimsical creatures, clothes which will ignite their curiosity and make their personality spark... Big words, but I can see it work on her kiddos and their friends. You should come check it out...
