Last week I was in China reviewing Fall 2011 samples for one of my clients. During our 12 day trip, we ventured off to Hong Kong for a little shopping/inspiration trip.

I absolutely love Hong Kong.  The city is clean. modern, and has a thriving beat. I can’t get enough of this town. I need more than two days to explore this fantastic city.Perhaps during my Spring 2011 inspiration trip to Tokyo, I can spend more time here??

This trip, I took pics of kids. I have always had a passion for kids fashion, shoes, apparel, etc. I love how children’s products have also evolved into toys for adults. Kids today are making their own fashion statements and not just following their mommy and daddy.  I love the kids in Hong Kong. They take  fashion risks, mix a lot of color and prints, and just love having fun!!!

Here are some pics…sorry for the blur..kids move around a lot and my camera was acting up 🙁

Little boys running thru Causeway Bay in their Skechers sneakers. The boy in lime reminds me of Harry Potter with his glasses and geeky look :)

This isn't a kids shoe but I love the idea of this for kids. Could be a great silhouette if re-worked to be kid friendly.  I love the logo along the qtr..again another idea to develop.

So bummed this picture came out blurry. This mom and daughter duo were way too cute!  I love how she is replicating her mom, but she is also making a point of difference by wearing her zipper jeggings.
