Baby Bean vintage daywear, one-of-a-kind, cool, girly clothing made with 100% vintage fabrics is based in Dallas, Texas, and was created in 2004 by Christine Visneau. Christine studied Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and is inspired daily by her two little girls.
Each collection is crafted from and inspired by vintage fabrics. Each garment is handmade and truly one-of-a-kind. Our silhouettes are simple and modern, and the rich vintage textiles give each garments a timeless and classic feel.
Their new 2009 spring and summer collection is now available. They have clothes for little girls ranging in sizes 6 months to 6 years. Each item is made by hand and no two are alike. You also have the option to choose your own fabric from the swatches they have available. Each cute little outfit is made so brilliantly and feminine, perfect for your little angel. Great attention to detail and use of contrasting fabrics. You are bound to love whatever you buy from Baby Bean.
