LilSugar: What made you decide to do a kids' collection?
Rebecca Taylor: It was pretty organic. . . . I have three children, so I shop for them. I also thought that our prints would translate easily into pieces for little girls.
LS: What's the vision or inspiration for the look of the collection?
RT: Easy, soft silhouettes with the laid-back vibe of Summer days.
LS: Any styling tips for moms of little girls?
RT: Just keep it simple. . . . A cute pattern on a dress or a top is enough. Little girls are adorable already and don't need too many pieces or accessories!
LS: As a mom, what do you look for in kids' clothes from other designers, and what were some of your goals in designing your own collection?
RT: I like my children to be dressed like children. . . . I don't pick out anything that's too edgy or fashion-forward. So that was definitely a goal of mine in designing. I think our dresses have great silhouettes that don't look too adult.
LS: You know you're a mother when ______.
RT: Making weekday plans past 9 p.m. seems way too late!
LS: Why didn't anybody tell me ______ about motherhood?
RT: How much planning and scheduling is involved in a typical day when you're a working mom.
LS: What's the best trick your mama taught you?
