Looks like high-end fashion designers have exhausted the adult consumer demographic and are now going after kiddos. And I'm not talking about 13-year-old girls who might actually care about designer dresses -- no, I'm talking about 2-year-olds who would probably much rather run around in the nude. It sounds outrageous, but luxury toddler-wear is becoming one of the biggest growth segments in the children's clothing market -- up 7% this year as compared to 4% for children's wear in general.
