If, like us, you’re always looking for your next adventure, whether it be starting your own business or booking a dream trip, you might just be inspired by presenter Kate Garraway’s latest project. The Good Morning Britain host has let us into a little secret; she’s designed a brand new children’s clothing range for the high street chain M&Co – and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
The range ‘Kite and Cosmic’ has been created in aid of the children’s
charity I CAN, which Kate has been supporting for the past year in her
role as President of the Television Radio Industries Club (TRIC). The
charity supports children who have severe communication difficulties.
Kate told us: “Designing a children’s clothing range feels like a new chapter.
It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. When I was pregnant with
Billy, I had a scrapbook of ideas because I found the clothes available
for boys quite uninspiring. So working with M&Co on this range for
the children’s communication charity I CAN was brilliant – it’s the
perfect way to fulfil a dream I’ve had for ages.”
The clothing range is available for boys and girls in sizes 3-12 years
old, but else did Kate want to achieve with it? She said: “I wanted the range to include smart yet
relaxed pieces for the boys and cute, casual pieces for the girls.
Everything in the Kite and Cosmic range can be mixed and matched to
create an outfit perfect for your child.”
So did she learn anything along the way? Kate said: “I have learnt so much through this process, how a piece of clothing is developed from sketch, to mood board, to sample. The work that goes into creating a brand new range is amazing. I really hope that mums like the collection as much as I do, as it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. It’s a real passion of mine”. And the good news is, her own children have given it a thumbs up. She revealed” “I am happy to say my children have given it their seal of approval!”
Kate Garraway’s, Kite and Cosmic clothing collection supporting ICAN the children’s communication charity is available in sizes 3-12 years old, in stores and online at M&Co from Monday 10th October, www.mandco.com
