Despite the vivacity of the childrenswear market over the last decades, children’s fashion remains a marginal topic in Childhood Studies. Focusing on the importance of reshaping their interaction with the society and valuing their voice, the debate on children’s education barely ignores the importance of the daily interaction between children and their clothing. Based on an original anthropological methodology aimed at interpreting the material culture to inform the society this chapter will present the outcome of a research focusing on childrenswear from a designer’s, an educator’s and a child’s perspectives.
