Style File: C by Me
Looking for something fun to do with your kids over the holidays or maybe you want to make a unique present for someone? In tonight's Style File, Seven's Belkys Nerey takes us to a new shop where you can design your own clothes.
WSVN -- If you've always dreamed of seeing your name on a fashion label, here's your chance.
Erika Koopman: "We like to say that people here are creating their own private label."
At the new shop C by Me in Aventura, adults and kids can come in and design their own clothes.
Erika Koopman, C by Me, owner: "We have t-shirts, tanks tops, legging, socks, hats, one-sies, blankets really there is something for everyone. We even have for pets too."
Once you pick out your clothing item, you choose from three design packages. And if you're not the artsy type, don't worry, there's help.
Erika Koopman: "We do have several samples in a clip book that people can go through and come up with ideas and we have design consultants that can help you envision what you want to put on your stuff."
Then the real fun begins, you get all the tools you need from rhinestones, stencils, markers and paints to make your fashion statement. These kids really let their creativity flow.
Graham Harris: "I put flames on it, because I like flames, I put on camouflage like my backpack, I like scorpions, and I like playing cards."
Parker: "Spongebob because he's my favorite character."
It's a perfect place for baby showers, birthday and bridal parties or you can just come hang with your friends or fam.
Tara Alhadeff: "It's spending time with your kids and doing an activity where you can get messy somewhere else that's not in your own home."
You leave with your creations that same day and best of all, you walk out with bragging rights as a designer.
Emma Harris: "When people ask you where did you get that shirt, you can say, I made it."
Belkys Nerey: "Prices depend on what you choose to design and start at $15. C by Me will also make custom clothes for gifts."
