Shine Bright

The wait is over: we can finally reveal which new labels will be going head-to-head for our A/W16 Rising Star award! Meet the seven launch brands in contention this season...


Chic's fair-trade clothing is versatile and innovative, growing with children and promoting creativity. 

The Polish brand creates kidswear that can be mixed, matched and even transformed, using natural fabrics like cotton, wool and cashmere. 

Dear Eco

Scandinavian newcomer Dear Eco proves that eco-friendly products can still be stylish. 

Featuring original prints, the label's organic babywear (think sleepsuits, babygrows, blankets and booties) is designed to meet the needs of parents and little ones without impacting negatively on the environment. 

Avery Row

Founded by friends Helen and Fiona, Avery Row specialises in cool, versatile nursery accessories - including the unique Go Everywhere Mat. 

Available in three geometric, gender-neutral prints, it can be used as a changing mat for newborns - and, later, a playroom mat, teepee base and highchair bolster. 

Nod London

Nod London's whimsical sleepwear is inspired by the 'Land of Nod', and the make-believe characters that inhabit it. 

Business partners Pamela Badham and Laura Mooney (you can read more about them here) founded the brand after discovering a shared passion for childrenswear. Their debut collection features six designs, created especially for Nod by a British illustrator. 

From Babies with Love 

Regular readers will already be familiar with From Babies with Love, which donates 100% of its profits to children's villages around the world. 

Featuring fun animal characters, the brand's organic babywear can be mixed and matched.


Panda & Ping

Brit Pack brand Panda & Ping creates fun, practical bedlinen for children aged two to five. 


Its products - from cotton pyjamas, to blankets and duvet sets - are designed and made in Britain, using ecologically sourced fabrics. 

Outside the Lines

Designed to appeal to parents and children alike, Outside the Line's girlswear is feminine, wearable and modern. 

Expect chic knitwear, on-trend prints and unique finishing touches from this Britsh brand, which was founded by two of the designers behind Angel and Rocket. 

So, there you have it - our seven 'ones to watch' this season. You can catch their debut collections at Bubble A/W16: apply for a free ticket here, and discover your store's next best-seller.
