Uniform Style Guide

photoKristine Prugh, independent sales representative and mother of three, founded Twinkleberry & Son soon after the birth of her son in 2001. After a career in consulting, she was looking for a way to bring her love of fashion and children's products together with her desire to run her own business.  She now represents ten high-end children’s brands to independent retailers and department stores across the Midwest.  Kristine’s showroom in the North Branch Kids building on Goose Island in Chicago is open to the trade during markets and by appointment.   Twinkleberry & Son opened (dba) Chicago Prep Outfitters on July 13, 2009.   

Chicago Prep Outfitters was conceived because Kristine wanted to improve the experience of shopping for school uniforms.  Before now, urban parents were required to drive to the suburbs during the summer construction season or to shop online, which prevented kids from trying on uniforms to ensure a great fit.  Kristine saw a unique opportunity to offer a local shopping option to private school families on the north side of Chicago.

In addition, having been in the children’s clothing business since 2001, Kristine understands the complexity and trade-offs between fashion, fit and function.  Kristine believes that she brings a unique perspective to the business and is excited to be serving Alphonsus Academy & Center for the Arts with an online storefront and with frequent fitting opportunities at the school. 

We look forward to seeing you this summer!
