Payal Singhal says, “My line of comfortable festive wear for kids fills a gap in the market for clothes that girls and boys can wear, without being over the top. The kids line is miniature versions of the adult line and yet its age appropriate for and practical for the children, something that all mothers would be happy to have their little girls wear especially for occasions. Having a 2 year old myself I know how difficult it is to find cute indian clothes for kids” Rina Shah adds “Rinaldi Angels is a collection of designs that little girls would love and enjoy wearing It combines colour, style with comfort, allowing the young girls to look and feel like little ladies this season”.

All mommies love to shop for their little princesses. And when the kids can come along it always makes it more fulfilling! Designers Payal Singhal and Rina Shah hosted a warm and colorful ” Mommy and Me” evening at their store in Altamount Road last evening to launch their new festive collection for the l’il ones.
