PKM ~ Where Do the motivations and inspirations for Side Street Clothing brand come from?
SSC ~ I look for inspiration from all over the world, as well as in my own backyard. My initial motivation for creating a children's wear line came from an outfit that my mother had bought my daughter when she was visiting Paris. There was the perfect balance of chicness and whimsy in the garments, and they we so beautifully made that i felt inspired to make my daughter items that reflected my own personal style. Many of my designs are inspired by the fabrics that I find at local family owned shops in my neighborhood.

SSC ~ The first children's piece I sold was in August 2015, It was a distressed stripe "Mommy and Me" set that I still offer. I immediately knew that I wanted to sell children's wear exclusively, and over the next two months I added 20 items to my collection
