Lets just put all our cards out on the table before we begin, shall we?
Sapling Child is the type of brand that you'll find yourselves stroking & rubbing the 100% organic cotton on your skin. Yes, weird we know, but the quality really is that great and exactly why it makes the perfect choice for our baby's sensitive skin. Not to mention their soft colour palette and timeless designs. It’s fair to say, they're definitely nailing being the ultimate wardrobe staple.
Already trusted & endorsed by some of our favourite faces such as Jessica Alba & Jaime King we are very excited for Sapling to welcome on board Australia's very own fashion guru, journalist and Mother of two, Kate Waterhouse, as the new Creative Director for the just launched 'Twinkle Twinkle' Collection.
We had the opportunity to talk with Kate about her role as the Creative Director for Sapling, being a super successful business woman & giving us some friendly parenting advice.
We were very excited to see Sapling had partnered with an Australia Fashion Icon who was a mother but also a business woman. What was it about the brand that made you want to be a part of this project?
I have been a fan of Sapling’s for a long time, and my children have been long time wearers of the Sapling range at home. Both Sophia and Grace have both lived in their onesies for the first months of their lives! Not only do I love the design but combined with Sapling’s organic ethos, ethical production and dedication to quality, I was so honoured to be asked to be the creative director for Sapling’s 2017 season. I am beyond proud of this collection.
Can you walk us through how a design process like this begins & where you sourced your inspiration?
Thank you, The stars, skies and all within the cosmos have always been a source of inspiration for me, even for adult clothing and accessories I can’t go past stars and moons! It's vastness represents the limitless, hope for the future and the idea that anything is possible. I wanted to take this inspiration and combine it with my love of clean lines, minimal design touches and contemporary design mixed with the softest of colour palettes. I source my inspiration from so many places, things and people around me.
Dressing two little girls everyday, which of the pieces best reflects Sophia & Graces' personalities?
Sophia is three now so is unfortunately too old for Sapling but if she wasn’t, I would definitely dress her in the Blushing Rose Shorts and the Blushing Rose Raglan Tee she is my sporty little girl and loves to run around. I love to put Grace into the Blushing Orbit LS Bodysuit, they are so comfortable, she basically lives in them!
Do you have any tips for mums trying to juggle motherhood with a career?
Best tip I would have to say is just to be as organised as possible… I like to have bags/prams packed up the night before… set out what the kids are eating for the week.. And I’m a routine girl.. I find if I have the kids organised then I’m organised…. but that’s not to say it doesn’t always go to plan! haha.
Best piece of advice your mum has given you on motherhood?
Trust your instinct, a mother always knows best.
