New Children’s Clothing Line to be Shown at ENK Children’s Club in New York

Published: Wed Oct 19 2005

NEW YORK – Stylish, sophisticated, and fresh describes this exciting new line of children's clothes known as "Succo."

"We feel that every precious child's clothes should be as fresh as juice," explained co-designer Koko Amano. "We named our line "Succo," which is the Italian word for juice, because parents want their children to wear clothing that is fresh and stylish to give them a fresh start to each day."

Amano began the new children's clothing company in 2001 with her friend and co-designer Paula Nakamura. She used her talents as a designer of lady's knitwear to create this unique and exciting line of clothing for newborns, infants, and toddlers.

Nakamura is a mother of three, and like many young parents today was not happy with the clothing available for her children.

"I had always been looking for something fresh that fit my own tastes, but nothing on the market seemed to offer what I was looking for. We created a new look that has appealed to other mothers with young children," described Nakamura.

The two began manufacturing the Succo line in 2002 and sold the clothing through a major children's magazine, "Recruit Co," and stores in Japan. Succo grew so much in popularity among hip parents in Japan that Amano and Nakamura decided to bring the line to the U.S. this year.

The Succo line has been shown at a number of trade shows around the country. It was well received at the California market, Dallas market, the Las Vegas KIDShow, Florida's Kids Expo, Seattle Caravan Show, the Charlotte market, and the San Francisco Children's Apparel Market.

Now they are introducing the line at the ENK Children's Club in New York.

The name of the premiere line is the same as the company name – "Succo." This original line is made from 100 percent cotton jersey and is available in girls size newborn to size 6 and boys size newborn to toddler.

The second line is "Latte Succo by Succo." These original designs also come in 100 percent cotton jersey and are available in girls and boys size newborn to infant.

The third and newest line is "Coccolo by Succo." This line is manufactured in Portland, Oregon and offers clothing not only in cotton jersey but also in denim, cotton, and nylon blends. Available in girls and boys size infant to toddler.

The company welcomes inquiries from retailers, and offers information at
