YES! WE ARE JUDGING AT THE JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS AGAIN...
On Wednesday we're back judging at the Junior Design Awards which we are super excited about. If you're not familiar with this event itself, in short it's an industry leading event which takes place over a few days when everyone involved will be showcased a shortlist of the best children's brands (UK as well as international) and vote for things like 'Best Children's Design', 'Best Nightwear Brand' and 'Best Shop'. We're thrilled to be asked back again - and overexcited to meet everyone on the panel. Reading the line up of judges it looks like we will be meeting people we have followed on Instagram for years and we finally get to meet with and we can't wait!
Here is what Junior Magazine has got to say about us (thank you for the kind words!).
Gabrielle Spang, founder and owner of independent boutique Scandi Mini
Having moved from Sweden to the UK over 16 years ago, former marketing consultant Gabrielle entered the world of fashion retail by launching her hugely successful online boutique, Scandi Mini in 2011.
Born out of her desire to dress her own son in understated, cool clothing without fuss and gender stereotyping she went on a mission to prove there was a different way to dress children. With her savvy eye and impeccable Scandi sense-of-style she enlisted independent - and unknown - brands with a more minimalist approach to dressing.
Expanding into selling toys, homewares, gifts and accessories saw Gabrielle open her eagerly awaited first shop in West London in 2016.
Gabrielle lives with her family and 2 children Wilhelm, 9 and Cornelia, 5 in London (pictured).
Bonita, Chloe, Geraldine and co. - I look forward to seeing you soon!
