The year: 2002
The Event: Senior Prom
After waiting an excruciating amount of time, the highlight event of 4 years of high school was finally here. Countless hours of chit-chat with my girlfriends revolving around crucial topics like limousines, makeup, dresses, and hair.
OHHHH the hair! Who can forget those adventurous hairstyles of our past?
On second thought, scratch that, let’s forget about the hair.
More importantly, I was a big hit at the prom.
No, I wasn’t the most popular, or had the best dance moves (my style IS electrifying if you ask me, though) or anything like that.
What I did have, was my entire prom weekend and then some paid for by designing and selling dresses to three of my classmates!
From that point forward I knew I was destined to design.
My dreams took a detour though and I ended up with a corporate job.
My designs went from dresses to daydreaming doodles but the fire within me was still lit.
When I first experienced the frustration of buying kids’ clothes, the shoddy quality and “me-too” designs were enough to both make me scream and ignite my past passionate spark into a wildfire.
I was on a mission to dress my tots in unique designs and durable clothes, built to stand up to the rigorous vigor of children’s’ everyday life.
Living with my husband in Italy, I was inspired by the elegance of the Italian language and the name I bambini (The children) stuck in my brain.
Alas, my online boutique was born and I am truly in my happy place.
Because of my sour shopping experience, I am committed to:
* The highest quality cotton dresses, which have subsequently been battle tested by thousands of kids without a single complaint about durability.
* One of a kind designs you won’t find mass produced. Know your child will stand out in a sea of repetitiveness.
* Designing dresses fancy enough for a special occasion, but practical and tough enough for everyday life.
* Fostering children’s creativity through whimsical patterns and colorful styles.
All this is why it brings me great joy to have each dress individually handcrafted to our meticulous standards. 48 reviews with 47 of them being five-star and 1 four-star. Almost all of these satisfied customers rave about two things.
The customer service and the quality/durability of the dresses. This brings me immense pride and I promise to continue to deliver the highest value to you with every new design.
I know how critical our children are to us and how difficult growing up can be sometimes. Schoolwork, bullying, first crush, the list of worries is a mile long. One thing they should never worry about is their clothing.
That’s why we at I Bambini are eternally grateful you trust us to grow together with your child.
Life is tough enough without feeling comfortable and looking fabulous.
