New Designer: Juja Bear

This Spring & Summer fashion season is the first of many for Juja Bear, a new clothing line specializing in non-traditional smocked dresses for babies and girls up to 6 years of age.

Inspired by a vacation overseas and time spent with distant relatives in the childrenswear business, designer Jholet Tabuena began co-designing special occassions dresses for her daughter Juliana (whose nickname is also the name of the label). Needless to say, the dresses caught the attention of many and so Juja Bear began.

All dresses are hand-made with care and named after real little girls. Juja Bear carries a very limited inventory for each dress with the belief that each dress is as unique as the little girl it is named after. Juja Bear dress designs range from fun and fancy cottons to the more elegant, sophisticated line of silks.
