Nowadays, innovative ideas and products are mushrooming rapidly. Most of them are designed for adults or workers. But, innovation outfit for children are rarely found as they are known as complicated persons. As a beginner, they need to learn many things but in the easiest way. The best way to help and simplify their education is information being gathered into one, so that, they can learn faster. The issue is nursery trip. During the trip, various possibilities can occur such as cardiac disease,, dirt on the dress and many more. Teachers are also not able to bring their entire student’s stuff. Other than that, aspect of children safety also is a priority. Children can easily fall and get injured. We do not recommend being over protective of children because young children are hyperactive. The aim is to create an innovative collection based on kids and nursery needs.

From the aspect of aesthetic value, the design is very cute and childish with a combination of very bright and cheerful colours. The fabric used is cotton as it is very comfortable and absorbs sweat.
