After debuting as an emerging designer at Charleston Fashion Week 2010, Barbara Beach returned as a featured designer at the 2011 event. Beach's show stood out in large part because few of her models were more than four feet tall (she's a children's designer), but more importantly, her line was truly one of our favorites — cute, classic, and clean. Beach channeled a colorful kid's birthday party with her line of swingy dresses, well-tailored coats, and fur collars. The only problem is we couldn't possibly squeeze into these adorable designs, but when we become parents, we'll know who to call to make sure our kids are the best-dressed ones on the playground.
