Celebrate Spring With African Fashion For Kids

Celebrate Spring With African Fashion for Kids

Have you ever heard the phrase “April Showers Bring May Flowers”? Well, it’s a fun, silly saying that notes the beginning of the Spring season. I don’t know about you, but spring usually has me celebrating rebirth, renewal, and the blossoming of youth. Who better to celebrate new beginnings than the fruit of our looms, the future of the world, our little babies, our children. Spring is about welcoming the new and the young, so let’s welcome our children the best way we know how—through their fashion. Enjoy as we do a tiny spring season fashion show with our beautiful African children and their clothes.

Shells Belles Kidz
