Mini Pup?

December 7, 2014

#WhatIsMiniPup?


A dog blog? Good question. 

‘Mini Pup’ is my harlequin great dane, who resides with my boyfriend and I in our NYC loft. (Which in itself, is hysterical) During the initial phases of branding my company, L’Officiel Enfant, my graphic designer couldn’t resist using Mini or ‘Mini Pup’ (as she’s been aptly-named) in the logo.

A massive dog being the face of children’s apparel was just too perfect.

What started out as a joke, has become my newest passion (not to mention an online sensation) Mini-Pup.com was named: “The Web’s Latest Four Legged Fashion Icon” by Refinery 29.

To me, humor is what preserves my enthusiasm and passion for my work; style blogging, sometimes lighthearted, sometimes not, keeps me not only relevant but able to celebrate children’s fashion, in an unexpected and thought provoking way. The children’s apparel industry should be fresh, it should be innovative and it should be fun. Why not be silly, unexpected and influential?

As we are approaching the New Year (filled with tons of exciting developments) I’d like to take December as a month to reflect upon everything that has brought me to this point, from starting a boys clothing line in college to ‘Mini Pup’ - the dog blog?

Hang on. It’s been a wild ride.

X, A
