Kids Instyle would have to be one of my most favourite yearly events as a kids fashion lover! It is Australia's premium boutique trade fair that is part of Life Instyle that show in both Sydney and Melbourne every year.
'Return to the Source' is the theme this season at Kids Instyle in Melbourne which brings together Buyers, retailers, interior designers, and stylists that will discover premium products from 100+ boutique brands all celebrating the stylish world of little people. The fair will run in Melbourne 4th-7th August at The Royal Exhibition Building Melbourne.
