I do really enjoy this time of year: the beginning of March not only signals the end of a long 2 months of industry toy fairs, but also means the days are getting longer and it is time to start thinking about the coming year.
Lots of exciting things will happen in 2013 , not only new lines introduced into current ranges but this year
we will be introducing Clementine Your 1940's Girl™. Clemmie seems to have captured the imagination of so many of you, both here in the UK and in the US. She has been a delight to work on and we have had the continued good luck to work with incredibly talented designers.
Clementine's clothes were created by the uber-talented and Emmy Award-nominated Caroline Harris, who has for the past 15 years been working on both sides of the Pond as head of costume design for such films as 'A Knights Tale', 'Repo Men', 'The Governess' and 'The Awakening'. You will get to see more of Caroline's work this year in the much anticipated Hollywood film, '42' which is out in April 2013.
We are all keeping very busy at A Girl for All Time® as we give our products their final tweaks so that we can have them ready to share by the end of the summer.
Keep checking in with us as we post sneaky peeks until we are able to release our first official images of Clementine Your 1940's Girl™ at the end of April.
In the meantime, here is one of my fave streets in New York City, taken last week when I was at the Toy Fair New York -
Until next time -
