Finding children clothes that they actually want to wear is no easy task.
Part of the problem could be that most of the gaudy designs and garish colours we're familiar with will be the product of an adult imagination. Why don't we involve children themselves at any stage in the design process?!
These are the kind of questions that 'Articles of Interest' is interested in. It's a mini-series from the popular design podcast 99% Invisible that tells stories about fashion, and the clothes we wear. Episodes cover topics including the Hawaiian Shirt, punk clothing, and why women's clothing doesn't have more pockets.
Back to kids' clothing...and it's limitations. What would it be like to be an adult who has to wear it? Joe Rosenberg is 4 foot 8 inches (or 142 cms) tall and he speaks to his friend and colleague and the host of Articles of Interest Avery Trufelman about his experiences shopping in the children's clothing aisle.
