Bubble London SS16


I have been attending Bubble London for several years now and was honoured a few months ago to be asked to be a judge for the events Rising Star Award which recognises the best debuting launch brand at the show.

I along with three other industry experts were looking for innovation, quality, originality and commercial appeal. There were 14 brands in the category and I have to say it was a pretty tough choice. After walking around and meeting the people behind each brand myself and the other judges discussed in detail the pro’s and cons of each brand and finally made our decision.

Little Lulu’s was crowned the winner- offering the most adorable pre-walker shoes with an on-trend/mini me aesthetic. These would make the ideal gift for a new born and would look beautiful displayed in a childs room long after they have been outgrown. So huge congrats to the brand who now receive a free stand for the following show, guaranteeing a second season in front of some of the best buyers in the industry.
