What happens when high fashion meets children’s fashion? Well, it looks a whole lot like Harlem’s Fashion Row and American children’s fashion brand Janie and Jack’s new collection.
Harlem’s Fashion Row is an organization founded in 2007 by Brandice Daniel to celebrate emerging designers of color. The CEO and Janie and Jack’s SVP and General Manager worked together to bring the Harlem’s Fashion Row x Janie and Jack collection to life in just a matter of months.
“As a parent, I wanted to support designers of color by purchasing children’s wear for my daughter,” said Daniel. “I realized that the children’s market had very little racial diversity. Partnering three Black designers with Janie and Jack is a historic and courageous move led by Shelly Walsh. This partnership has inspired the designers and will hopefully provoke an entire industry to think differently about what it could look like to include more BIPOC designers in their strategy.”
Together, they’ve unveiled a collection so gorgeous, adults are bound to be jealous of their children’s ‘fits. Likewise, those without children will also be extremely jealous of their style.
The collaboration specifically highlights the work of three rising designers: Kristian Lorén, Kimberly Goldson, and Richfresh. These talented artists put their own unique spin on children’s clothing, while still staying true to the brand’s modern-meets-classic aesthetic. As you’ll see (unless you ditched us to check out the line already), the styles are next-level cool.
Fashion Row x Janie and Jack designer capsule collections officially launched on the brand’s website on October 10, and it will be available in select stores nationwide. Prices range from $19 to $139 across all three capsule collections.
Ahead, get a taste of the designers’ creations, but be sure to check them out in their entirety on Janie and Jack’s website.
