Mums' Days meets designer Myleene Klass
What a day I had yesterday. I literally felt for one day like Rosie Londoner! Mothercare invited me to be their VIP blogger for their brand-new store launch, which was happily down the road from me in Gateshead. And what a store it is! As one of the largest stores in the UK, I’d visited pre-Reuben to get stocked up with essentials but I’ll be honest, although the staff were lovely, the store itself was not. What a transformation. Mothercare is now a full experience, a department store complete with gorgeous cafe, Angelica’s, and soft play from Jelly Bugs…but the star attraction? Baby K designer and all round lovely lady, Myleene Klass!

While with many strings to her bow, Myleene is also the Baby K fashion designer and an award-winning designer at that! Hot off the press yesterday morning I was with Myleene soon after discovering her Boys Collection had won an award from Junior Magazine for Best Boys Fashion. Exclusive for Mums’ Days!! And fabulous because so many of you had mentioned to me that it’s really difficult to find good boys clothes!
Myleene talks to me about what this award means to her in our interview and a few other nuggets as suggested by the lovely Mums over on the Mums’ Days Facebook Wall! There were so many wonderful questions.
The key things I covered were (or just scroll to the bottom for the video!):
1. Winning the award
2. Mums want colour (specifically for the boys!! I heard you Heidi and friends!) and a look around the collection…
3. What’s with the leopard print for the girls (Jade!)?
4. Work/life balance…(Susan and friends)
5. What’s #StrongMamas?
6. Has being a mum changed her career choices?
7. What is her top glamour tip (for you Katie!)?
8. Does she get broody when designing all these lovely clothes for babies?!
There was so much more I wanted to ask (for example Vicki wanted to know what was coming up in her career – GREAT question!) and Myleene was so generous with her time but she was also in high demand! So I’m sorry I didn’t get to ask all your questions, but I hope you enjoy the interview all the same!
Exclusive Interview with Award-winning Baby K designer, Myleene Klass!
Sorry the sound kind of sucks!! But at least it gives a good representation of how bustling the store was!
So what do you think of the brand new, now award-winning Baby K range?!
I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below or come and join the conversation over on the Mum’s Days Facebook Wall.
I’ll be doing a full Mothercare store intro over the weekend for you – I think you’re going to love it!
