Hi Nino! Tell us about yourself…
I grew up in Soviet Georgia, surrounded by a big, traditional family. After studying in beautiful Heidelberg, Germany, I lived in Russia for a bit and then moved to London. I have two children--my daughter just graduated from Manchester University and recently began an exciting internship, and my son is about to start his Economics degree at City, University of London.
What is your favourite part about running Igloo Kids?
I love discovering new brands and new collections. I put the orders together like a puzzle, imagining them in my shop. I also love meeting new people--parents rolling their prams into the shop with adorable little children who light up at the sight of Igloo Kids!
Your favourite item from this season’s collection?
The BANGBANG Bird Girl dress is so fun and beautiful. It's made with exceptional design and quality.
What’s your idea of a perfect day?
When the shop is full of children running around, playing and laughing happily. Some children are here for their haircuts, some to get new shoes, some just want to spend their pocket money! I love to see our staff wrapping gifts and blowing up balloons. A perfect day for me is a busy, buzzing, happy atmosphere in Igloo Kids.
