The Showstopping SolShine Childrens Line

by Lisa Ajello on October 23, 2014







SolShine childrenswear and accessories was beyond my favorite new finds among childrens designers!!!Attending the fabulous, “Petite Parade“, kids fashion shows year after year and discovering new designers as their mini models walked the catwalk has always been a joy of mine! Being a mother of a beautiful 7 year old daughter  it has always been exciting for the two of us to attend the shows together and work the activities as one of our little mommy and daughter bonding days.Last season my daughter spotted the cutest, most ecclectic little girl this time not on stage, but part of the audience with her beautiful hip mother. Everyone in the audience and beyond was going crazy for this dynamic duo!The little girl’s name was,”Solee Laboy“, and she was rocking the best sunglasses and outfits I have ever seen.She stood out among the crowd and to me was the star of the little fashion brigade last year and this year as well! Not suprisingly when I approached her mom the super fabulous,” Dominque Sampson,” did I find out that she designed her precious princess’s  entire get up including those coveted sunglasses that the whole audience was raving about! Hence, from that day on did my daughter and myself become their biggest fans!!!

The story begins with designer Dominque Sampson as she unfolds her passion for what she does through the eyes of her sweet daughter Solee who is her sunshine,her heart, and beyond! She wanted to create affordable clothing and accessories, yet stylish and unique giving children a voice through her designs and allowing their fun side to shine through every step of the way! She would describe her pieces as being Afro Centric,Bohemian, yet a bit on the Hipster side which pretty much  sums up who she is! She draws her inspiration from her African heritage and has been inspired in so many ways by.”Solange Knowles“.

Most of her designs are exuberant and show loads of personality,handcrafted with LOVE and PATIENCE through Dominque’s true passion for what she does day in and day out! She noticed how her daughter and children in general love to wear adult accessories such as sunglasses,jewelry,and clothing. Based on her observations and from being a hip mother, she knew what she  was about to create in honor of her sunshine,”Solee”!!!

She is truly one of my favorite new finds and designers and I’m soo happy to be sharing her with all of you!!!

Happy Shopping!!!
