Rock Around the Clock

When Olena Dmytruk started Petite Amelia in 2012, she planned to use her background in architecture to help design a line of girls’ special occasion wear, but for Fall ’13 her vision has expanded to include tees, shorts, pants and skirts in sizes 2 to 8. As she sees it, every day in a little girl’s life should feel special, whether she’s dressed simply or sparkly. Wholesale prices range from $15 to $115. Visit www.petiteamelia.com.
