Who knew pandas were so fashionable?

In Love, Daddy the book, you can look forward to seeing our little panda bear wearing dresses, shorts, bathing suits, tennis outfits and lots more cute and fun ensembles. We've so enjoyed creating different looks for our panda bear's every occasion!

But who knew pandas were so popular with real people fashion?

We saw this image in the New York Times style section a few weeks ago during New York Fashion Week, and couldn't help but smile... - a fancy red coat covered in pandas!

After seeing this we did a quick search for "panda fashion" and low and behold, panda high fashion is quite popular! There was even a runway show by Chinese fashion designer Wang Yutao for Mercedes-Benz China Fashion week in the fall that featured a whole collection of panda patterned outfits for brand BeautyBerry! Wow - panda mania!

Obviously the Love, Daddy team needs to be outfitted by Wang Yutao stat. Maybe we should splurge for panda ensembles for our publication party - matching panda sweaters perhaps? ; D

Do you own any panda inspired clothing? If so, we'd love to hear about it!

And we're live!
