The story began in 2007 when Maria fell in love with buying children's clothes as she developed a business with a friend.
"I have always been involved in children's television programming and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was born in Argentina and then moved to Los Angeles in 1999. Since then I have moved to London, married and had three children. I soon realised that London, however fashion forward it is for adults, was lagging behind in quality childrenswear.
In 2009, when my children were six, four and two years old, I was lucky enough to be able to buy my shop in Holland Park. Hop Like a Bunny was already in its infancy. I frequented the best trade fairs in the UK, Europe and US and selected pieces from all round the world which I felt mothers would be most happy to dress their children in.
Everything I buy, from the most authentic, luxurious Alpaca babywear from Bolivia, to cutting edge environmentally friendly nursery furniture and mix-and-match cool neutrals for growing kids and fashion-conscious parents has been carefully chosen by me. Wherever possible I favour designers who use natural, organic fabrics and work in eco-friendly environments. I only buy pieces that I love and would be happy to have in my home or see my children wear."
We look forward to seeing you in our shop at 12 Portland Road, London W12 4LA and hope you will be tempted by our website.
