Started three years ago by Iris Ramos, Duxton Kids grew out of Duxton (which offers comfortable and stylish menswear) and offers breathable fabrics and easy-to-wear dresses and shirts that don’t require yanking over busy heads, creating clothes that kids “love to run around in.”
“We want to create clothing that’s empowering for children,” explains Ramos, “and which can also give parents a way to talk about difficult or awkward matters. It’s easier to talk about this way.”
To that end, the brand offers “playdate wear” that’s 100 percent cotton and comfortable for any occasion. They also have a “Fight light a girl” t-shirt series featuring different empowering women and girls every month. In August, they will be launching “Conversation with my kiddo”, featuring clothes that talk about inclusivity in all its forms.
Duxton Kids can be found in three locations but their newly opened store, Monument Lifestyle in Dempsey is 80 percent focused on children – with apparel, clothing and empowering art lessons. These are suitable for ages 2 to 8.
