PRLog - Feb. 2, 2012 - PORT JEFFERSON, N.Y. -- New York designer, and stay at home mother of two girls, Dawn Conning has found a way to take a cue from the “far beyond wearable” accessories of today's pop stars, and is creating bold, colorful, fanciful and wearable hair accessories for the tween and pre-tween set. Based on the growing demand at her website www.LPHBNY.com, she believes that this trend could be the next big thing in girls fashion.
Designer Dawn Conning
We are all aware that fashion no longer has an age limit. Forty is the new thirty. Thirty is the new twenty...and it seems seven is the new seventeen. Yes, that’s right. Just watch some YouTube music videos, the Disney channel, or Nickelodeon and you'll see where today’s elementary schoolers get their fashion sense. Ultra popular stars like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga are known for their outrageous outfits, including some super funky head-wear. In reality though, these accessories don't really translate well to day to day fashion for most of us
Dawn's creations are not quite as big, and are certainly more comfortable looking, but they do invoke the “larger than life” attitude of the pop fashions they emulate. Pieces like a headband with a big three scoop ice cream cone, or an adorable five inch tall owl, or a flashy electric guitar are among the handmade designs Dawn sells in her online store www.LPHBNY.com. The initials stand for “Little Princess Hair Bows New York”.
Since debuting her designs at a craft fair on Long Island in 2010, moms and their fashion forward daughters have been seeking out Dawn for her one of a kind designs. She says, “My customers' loyalty keeps me inspired, and I love it when something I made makes a little girl so excited!” Having already sold over a thousand original pieces, Dawn still considers herself to be just starting out. “I think that people like to know that when they get one of my pieces, they have the only one exactly like that. It's something special that no one else will ever have.”
LPHBNY.com was founded in 2010 and is home to the original designs of Dawn Conning. Here you will find a constantly evolving line of hair accessories for young girls, tweens, teens and adults ranging from petite and demure to outrageous and funky with a whole lot of cute tossed in for good measure!
