Snezana Nikolic Y-Kairos makes the most beautiful Upcycled Children’s Clothes and is a member of GLOWS Tulse Hill.
A passionate children’s clothes designer with fifteen years background in couture, Snezana studied fashion at Chelsea College in London. After growing up watching her mum seamstress, she was hooked as a child and went on to hone her craft by dressing politician’s wives, celebrities, and making made to measure ladies suits, ball gowns and dresses.
After the birth of her son she transferred her love for couture into creating one of a kind childrenswear and setting up her own business Y-Kairos. But why Kairos? Snezana explains in her own words.
“KAIROS is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment… a moment of indeterminate time in which everything happens. It is this happy, perfect moment of grace and beauty that I strive to incorporate into each of my unique garments.
When my son was little, he refused to wear any hats or hoods. I was desperate. As he loved the character ‘Noddy’, I thought of making him a jacket with a Noddy hood.
He absolutely loved it and so did the mothers of his little friends. He happily wore the hood and I happily started completing orders. I transferred my love for couture into creating high quality, comfortable and unique children’s wear.
The core value of my business is to work to a high, environmentally friendly standard. I use only locally sourced fabrics of the highest quality. I take inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, children, art and the spirit of the fabrics themselves to create ‘one of a kind’ SUSTAINABLE clothes for ‘one of a kind’ children.
As well as beautiful, the garments I create are also easy to wear, functional and timeless, made to pass on as the years fly by.
Creating bespoke garments from your own designs is a challenge I relish so do get in touch if you have any particular requests.”
