Episode #1

2023 Year Review

Heading into 2024 we couldn’t launch our new podcast without an ‘End of Year Review of 2023’.

In this first episode we discuss our kids’ fashion & lifestyle names to remember for 2023… a trend to remember, a trend to forget! ‘Film of the year’ – spoiler Linda only went to see one film during 2023 so the shortlist was… short! Plus, we look at what we’re looking forward to in 2024.

Episode #2

In this episode Linda & Katie chat to George Reddings about her fascinating and diverse career in kids’ fashion from working under Micky Drexler at Gap in New York to working on developing labels for Jools Oliver and singer Jessie Ware.
