The fairytale design from Jumina is not only enjoying success in Paris and in Tokyo! The designer has decided to lead the way for children’s fashion in their home country as well, taking part in a trend runway show for children’s wear together with seven other Norwegian designers.
Inspired by the gymnasts of the 70’s the Norwegian brand Ugly Children’s Clothing has launched a collection of retro sportswear for children. Bright red, blue and white, with retro stripes as close to the original deal as possible.
Physical activity is a healthy habit that can be taught from early childhood, with a range of regular sustained periods of physical activity and variety of movement. These clothes seem to fit the bill. Yes to an active childhood!

Norway is a unique skiing and snowboarding destination, being the birth place to modern alpine skiing. The Norwegians are very proud of their skiing heritage, often stating that Norwegian babies are born with skis on their feet! Little Scandinavian went on holiday to find out!
What we found: Norwegian babies are not born with skis, but eager to get out into the slopes even at the tender age of 8 months. Little Bi wearing fair isle in the Marius pattern a classic Norwegian knit style, designed by Unn Søiland Dale, and named after the Alpine skier Marius Eriksen. Wool tights to spin around in and skis not quite the right size yet, inherited from Little A and ready for use in a couple of years from now.

Ugly Children’s Clothing was founded in Norway, because three creative designers found a gap in the market for children’s clothing, after searching for funky and cool clothes for kids with attitude.
It started up with baby grows in 2007 and has developed into a full range of everything from outerwear with the fantastic futuristic Camo rainwear, knitted garments and soft cotton pieces and last must not least the bottles as retro as it can get, copying milk bottles from the 50′. Latest news is that Ugly has launched a online shop, with free worldwide shipping.
