Finding quality (and original) kids’ clothing can be tough, so we were excited to find some creative, local mom entrepreneurs who are breaking the fashion design mould for girls, boys and even babies. Best of all, these funky threads are locally-made, right here in the ‘groove’.
Frustrated trying to find age-appropriate, functional active wear for her own three daughters, Carolyn Bishop, created LiLiKiKs in 2007. Her idea was to make versatile active and team wear for girls aged 5 to 14 that was not overly trendy. She wanted her clothes to transition between activities and seasons (think soccer field to dance class). The result is high-quality, comfortable technical clothing, with fantastic design details to add some flare. LiLiKiKs used to be in Kerrisdale, but recently moved to an online store with a factory storefront. We just wish her designs came in adult sizes, too!
