Meet Carmen Fredrick, founder/designer of @montanamilan #HumansofChildrenswear⠀

✨What did you want to be when you grew up?⠀
When I was 8 years old, I always knew I wanted to design clothes. I didn’t know at the time it was called a clothing designer. I wanted to live in Paris, France and New York City and own my own factory.⠀

✨What might people be surprise to know about you?⠀
I’m really a shy person. My first attempts to overcome my shyness was going to a department store in Manhattan and hold a conversation with the sales people at the makeup counter. They would explain all the products and how to use them, and I would practice asking all sorts of questions.⠀

✨Who is your most coveted dinner guest?⠀
I would love to have a tea party picnic with girls age 5-10 years from different neighborhoods around Chicago. From the Southside, Westside, Northside, and Eastside—these young girls of different cultures and background would symbolize unity. There is beauty in power and community, and it all starts with young girls. No electronics allowed, just a fun and exciting day of games, creative play, conversation, and lovely finger sandwiches.⠀

✨What’s the best advice you ever received?⠀
Music can be very inspiring and the best advice I have received actually came from a song. When I was a young girl, I loved the song called 'The Impossible Dream.' I would stand in front of the cabinet mirror in the bathroom and sing 'The Impossible Dream,' imagining myself living in Paris and New York City and making clothing. ⠀

✨What’s inspiring you right now?⠀
The quietness of the lockdown has allowed us to open our studio/shipping department. Parents are able to bring their little girls in for a personal shopping experience with me by appointment. I enjoy listening to the little girl’s thoughts on the garments she chooses to try on. Many of the children ask why my garments have names, and I always enjoy explaining to them how I come up with the names.

I’m also inspired by spring, the beautiful bright coloured flowers that are blooming, beautiful sky’s and lighter nights. My new collection is inspired by the Californian sunsets.⁣
