Co-CEOs and lead designers, Michelle Lopez and Andrea Dotzauer, first put our cool, high-end kids’ streetwear clothing brand on the map with our signature harem pant and have since expanded to make everything from shorts to coats for children, newborn to 12 years-old.
In under two years, the duo went from sewing at their dining room table to outgrowing their first studio space and selling their clothing line at stores worldwide, including exclusive collections at luxury retailers Barneys New York and Ron Robinson. The brand has been spotted on The Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and The Fox 6 Wake Up Show, and has appeared in The Huffington Post, Star Magazine, OK! Magazine and Daily Mail UK.

In that time, they’ve also built a badass team and are committed to mentoring and training young women in our local community while reviving the dying art of handmade clothing construction.
theMINIclassy exists today because Michelle and Andrea dreamt big and took a risk. The reason they get out of bed and grind everyday is to inspire their own kids to dream big too – to do their own thing and pave their own path. #bossladies
We believe that different, unusual, brave ways of thinking are what make the impossible a reality. We want to give kids permission and encouragement to imagine, explore and create — the things that make magic. Our mantra — KEEP YOUR HEAD IN THE CLOUDS™ — is a reminder not to let anyone tell you to play it safe or that you can’t do something. It’s a rebellion against being dragged back down to earth, following the crowd or settling for average. theMINIclassy is for all the little dreamers out there!
We make high-end streetwear for the kiddos — clothes that are uniquely fashionable AND functional. Each piece is handmade with love in the Midwest by hard-working, artistic women who often collaborate with other artists (including kids) to create theMINIclassy’s styles. Our ahead-of-trend designs and seasonal collections are known for unique print and pattern mixing that rotate quickly to offer exclusive appeal. And, because garments are made to order, no two pieces are identical.
Our products are kid tested and approved (literally!) and are designed with style, comfort and fit in mind. Since we know firsthand how rough kids can be on clothes, we structure our apparel for durability. Most clothing is constructed from super soft, high-quality, OEKO-TEK Standard 100 certified, eco-friendly bamboo / cotton blend fabrics.
