Review: Fashion Playtes Design Studio

Fashion Playtes contacted us to do a review that our kids could participate in! Fashion Playtes is a new virtual design studio that empowers girls ages 6-12 to design and produce their very own clothing. The online platform let’s girls “play designer” and use their creativity to create custom clothes and accessories (complete with personalized labels!) that are delivered to their doorstep in just 3 weeks.

A fabulous activity for moms and daughters to enjoy together, the site allows girls to see their unique ideas come to life with high-quality garments they’ll be proud to wear. And - with prices starting at just $25 for a custom dress, the designs are budget-friendly and make for a fabulous birthday gift or slumber party activity.

click to see, but ignore my typo lol

I sat down with my two girls (you know I couldn't leave one out) to go through the site. Since we had a limited budget and 2 to shop for + shipping fees, we had to choose wisely. Silly enough they chose winter items! Something we won't get to use too often here in So Ca! But it's what they wanted. They chose the colors and add ons if available. Each add on cost a couple bucks so keep that in mind. Our youngest picked the Claudia Fleece Scarf in pink (her favorite color) and our oldest chose the Hayley Fleece Pixie Hat in turquoise with a rhinestone snowflake symbol. They had fun going through each item, adding on things, changing the colors, back and forth. Our Fashion Playtes designs arrived in about 2 1/2 weeks. There were no sizes listed for these so I wasn't sure if the hat would fit my oldest, but it was plenty big enough! The sparkly snowflake is stuck on there really good too, which is nice. The scarf is a generous size too for my little one. The quality of the fleece is great, sturdy and a nice thickness. I'm pretty sure these will last (I noticed the hat has a tag on it made by these guys). I recommend this site for anyone with children, they'll get a kick out of designing something for themselves! My little one was so excited to get a box in the mail FOR HER! lol
