I launched Baby Boniface March 2017, after the birth of my little girl Gracie Jeanne. My fiancé and I decided not to find out the gender of our baby during pregnancy. We found buying unisex clothing and accessories extremely difficult, unless we wanted white or yellow. Being someone that likes colours and unusual prints, I found this very frustrating. Even once our daughter was born we faced difficulty trying to find girls clothes that weren’t overly girlie, pink and frilly.
At 14 months Gracie was in 6-9 month clothing, which are classed as ‘baby’ clothes. Being a toddler I didn’t want to dress her in baby styles, but other options were difficult to come across. This is where Baby Boniface came from; a clothing brand with garments that are handmade and fun, without being too gender specific.
With a Foundation Degree in Fashion Design, sewing and altering garments for over 15 years, and my small business as a self employed bridal seamstress, Baby Boniface was a natural progression, which now runs alongside family life and bridal work.
