Edith Bowman disapproves of children's clothes trend

Tuesday May 21, 2013

DJ Edith Bowman has hit out at the trend for "ridiculous" designer clothes for children.

The former Radio 1 star, who has two young boys, also disapproved of mothers who dress siblings in the same outfits and said that people were too quick to judge women on breastfeeding and Caesarean sections.

When asked by fellow broadcaster Colin Murray: "Do you dress your kids in designer clothes? I hate that", Edith, 39, said: "Agreed. Also, dressing siblings in the same clothes.

"Let them have their own identity... When I think of designer clothes, though, I think of those really awful 'almost adult' clothes for kids, like suit jackets and leopard-print head bands".

When Colin, who is presenting a Radio 5 Live series on pregnancy and birth with Bowman, recalled seeing a toddler in Armani shoes, she replied: "Ridiculous. It's nice to treat yourself now and again, but you have to remember they'll grow out of them so quickly.

"My brother is about to have a baby girl and my mum and I went to have a look at a shop in north London that does sell the most gorgeous, but expensive, kids' clothes. Mum looked at this amazing little dress for a baby girl - it was £300! It would probably fit her for a month."
