As we prepare our ‘Back to school’ basics; I thought it would be a great time to review some of the Autumn kids fashion trends. So have you been watching BBC 2’s ‘No More Boy’s and Girl’s’? A programme exploring the bias towards children, depending on their gender. The ‘gender neutral’ trend is gaining momentum and appearing in many young fashion collections too.
