Inspired by Anelia and Maia’s appreciation for ballet.
Eight-year-old Maia takes ballet but as yet is not yet able to wear pointe shoes as you have to be 11 years before you can dance on pointe as well as being a set grade too. As Maia was desperate to own a pair for fun, my mother in law asked a favour from her friend who makes custom-made pointe shoes for professional ballerinas, to make a pair for Maia. Maia doesn’t dance on tiptoes whilst wearing the shoes but she loves putting them on and admiring them and practising basic positions in them.
Since having her two children Kuba and Maia, Dublin-based Anelia has been able to find a creative outlet where she could express her lifelong interest in fashion styling and photography. Be sure to keep up with Anelia and her family @anelia_a.
More on the ‘Dancers’ SS18 Collection from the Little Creative Factory.
The new collection from Little Creative Factory finds it’s inspiration in children around the world who strive to be someone different, who look to forge their own journey and do so with all the effort and imagination they can muster and in so celebrates the freedom that emerges from staying true to their dreams.
The shapes in the collection are voluminous and free-flowing, perfect for little dancers to twirl in and move freely. Nude pieces combine with the signature black styles and you will find green and coral colours, in flighty tulle, heavy linen and cosy soft fabrics that blend to create beautiful, airy combinations. Styles can be tied up and combined with any number of pieces to create individual outfits that move freely and help celebrate the unique identity of every little person that wears them.
‘Dancers’ collection styles are created for free flowing movement and ‘such is our belief that these tiny beings should dance like crazy and stay true to their wild ones within’.
