Mini Fish Kids Fashion is a children’s clothing store established in 2008 when I had my daughter Taylor. I did learn how to sew at school, but never ignited my passion until I had a little human to sew for. I started in a bedroom at home making bibs and dresses, and before I knew it I was sewing for friends, family, doing local markets and opening pop up shops in Lower Hutt. I had my son a few years later and felt so grateful to be working from home and balancing work and family to suit us! They are now 10 and 7 and gymnastics mad, so naturally my business focus shifted to follow their interests and my first leotard was made about 4 years ago, I have since sewn 100s for girls and boys and recently moved into crop tops, shorts, ¾ and full length leggings too. What next?
Last year I tried to find a medal holder to display Taylors achievements but couldn’t find one locally. I designed one and had it laser cut for her birthday and to gift to friends. After showing on my Facebook page I was overwhelmed with requests, so I had some made. If you are interested in having something different cut on top, please email me, you need to order ten to produce.
Then recently I fell in love with MADMIA Socks and decided to become a stockist, these are so vibrant and fun and fit everyone from kids size 5 to adults. Stay tuned as I have other items in the pipeline!
Please email me or PM through Facebook if you see something you like but not in your size. I will take on a small amount of custom orders each week while I build stock for sale.
I am incredibly grateful to enjoy the balance of working from home, picking up my kids after school and playing taxi mum while hearing about their days, thank YOU for making this happen.
