I always find such gorgeous children's clothing designers at the Mathilda's Markets and last week in Sydney was no exception. One of my favourite new finds was the sweet collection from up-and-coming designer Faith of Castlebox.
Based in Melbourne, Faith designs absolutely beautiful French-inspired pieces for boys and girls. I feel a real movement towards more conservative, vintage-feel designs for kids at the moment, and Castlebox is right on trend with lovely liberty prints and smart clothes for little ones.
The range for children 3-10 years is designed and handmade in Australia and includes knitwear, dresses, pants, shirts, tops and skirts. Two of the pieces that really caught my eye were the v-necked Castlebox Classic jumpers for boys with contrasting lined "pockets". Clever and unique. And the lovely little-house-on-the-prairie Matilda dresses for girls. And of course I loved all the accessories that Faith makes. Think headbands with tulle, mirror fairy brooches and other handmade goodies. Paired with a pair of Walnut Melbourne shoes, you've got a lovely little outfit.
You can find Castlebox children's clothes in the online store and at various markets (check the website for details).
