THUNDER BAY – The holiday season is quickly approaching and parents are looking for gift ideas for loved ones. Clothing seems to be a great holiday gift item, but some parents are not exactly in tune with the trends that constantly change.
Today, parents are stretching their household budgets during tough economic times, while still trying to ensure their kids have trendy and fashionable clothing. Parents want to make sure their children feel and look their best, gaining confidence among their peers.
Lifestyle and street wear clothing used to carry a very negative connotation in the minds of some parents. These days consumers of street wear have a very mature and sophisticated understanding of how fashion works, and how clothing should fit.
Designers for companies as diversified as Sean John, Phat Farm and Rocawear are creating lines that take into account on how clothing should fit. Many of these brands offer tailored clothing and traditional dress shirts that offer something for everyone looking to make a fashion statement.
The increasing popularity of Mixed Martial Arts and UFC have created an industry of fashion designers who design clothing based on the sport. Brand names such as Tapout, Hostility, Dethrone, and Bad Boy are some of the most popular clothing lines this year and continue to dominate the Lifestyle and Street Wear fashion circles.
The Urban Boutique located at 1096 Memorial Ave carries a number of MMA, Urban and Lifestyle clothing for both men and women. The retail shop established in 2008 has seen an increasing amount of parents seeking guidance on fashions for the holiday season.
“It’s all about bridging the gap” says owner Angelo Petta. “Kids want designer fashion, and parents are on a budget, but we’ve managed to ensure we have the best pricing for all the sought after brand names”.
