Innovative Kid’s Clothing by Petit Pli

This kids' clothing line designed by Royal College of Art graduate Ryan Mario Yasin has a pleat system that lets garments stretch to fit even after growth spurts. He used his background as an aeronautical engineer to devise a set of permanent folds that let clothes "unpack" when pulled, so they stretch over children as they get bigger.

Yasin is currently raising investment for Petit Pli, and plans to make early batches in the UK, with a focus on finding manufacturers with high ethical standards. The designer hopes that by creating kids' clothes that last longer, it will help reduce the huge amount of waste generated by the garment industry.
