"Earnshaw's salutes this year's winners. In this tough economic climate, to be able to earn the respect of your customers means even more," said Caletha Crawford, publisher and editor in chief. "These are the collections that drive the children's fashion industry. The 2008 Earnie winners have set a new bar for others to aspire to."
This year, the Earnie Award was presented in 22 categories, including the infant and toddler market, girls' wear, boys' wear, sleepwear, swimwear and accessories as well as a new category, Best Diaper Bag. Winners were selected by nationwide retailers from all channels. See below for the complete list of the 2008 Earnie Award winners; each will be highlighted in a special fashion shoot in the November issue of Earnshaw's.
