Can’t-Miss Kid Designer Style

March 21, 2017

From spaghetti sauce to haute couture, kid cook-turned-fashion-designer Chloe Sinow‘s creativity (and entrepreneurial drive) is palpable. Her new collection of clothing for tweens, dubbed Blush, is showing at this year’s Vancouver Kids Fashion Week, March 25 and 26 at the Chinese Cultural Centre. We caught up with Chloe ahead of the event to get the inside scoop on her inspiration and her personal style. —Noa Nichol

How did you go from making pasta sauce to designing clothes?!

I know it might seem like a large deviation in focus, but I love fashion, design and cooking—really anything that I can be creative at. I still work on Kids Can Cook Gourmet with my brother, I have always had a passion for fashion and design but it really started coming out when I started taking fashion illustration, pattern making and sewing lessons at La Movida Design Studios. Adding to that I had the amazing opportunity last year to be part of the Vancouver School Board mentorship program, which connects students with mentors in their area of interest. I had a great mentorship experience where I learned how to take a concept or inspiration and turn it into a collection, and then how to plan and execute a fashion show. For this program I designed and sewed eight outfits. This year at school Personal Interest Projects (PIPs) have been a large part of the curriculum and I have been able to use this project time to focus on my latest collection.

How did you come up with the name "Blush" for your collection and who is this collection meant for?

The theme and inspiration of my collection is my favorite colour: rose/blush. It’s a line of clothes designed by me for my age group. Blush focuses on the tween market and is designed to be dressed up or down for any occasion. Tweens don’t really fit the “kids” clothes anymore and adult styles aren’t always appropriate for our active lifestyles—we still need to play and look good while doing it!

How would you describe your personal style?

I love to dress up but, for the most part, I would say my personal style is cute, casual streetwear.

What celebrity would you love to dress?

I would love to dress Gigi Hadid.

Is fashion design a part of your future?

I have always loved fashion and I love how it let’s me express my creativity into something that can be worn. I also think there is room in the market for clothes that are specifically designed for tweens/teens that don’t really fit “kids” clothes anymore and adult styles aren’t always appropriate for our active lifestyles. I plan to continue designing unique, one-off pieces, as well as building my fashion portfolio to apply to international design schools.
