    American-Made for Children

     

    Gary Osborne is a well-respected child style expert with a passion for all things American-made. This passion is reflected in his work as founder and curator for Oliver & Adelaide, an online destination for high-end, handcrafted children’s gifts that are made in the USA. Scouting the country to uncover the best of the best in heirloom quality pieces, Gary discovers unique and beautiful designs and makes them available to his discriminating clients.

    To shed light on some of the relatively unknown, but highly talented artisans, designers and craftsman, Gary created a series of YouTube videos called “Meet the Creators” on his ChildStyleUSA channel. In these videos, Gary visits with independent manufacturers to feature their work and philosophy. As a result, Gary’s videos are fast becoming a necessary showcase for domestic manufacturers.

    Prior to founding Oliver & Adelaide, Gary worked as a well-regarded fashion designer. Gary applies his Masters in Art Education in curating all of the site’s collections and utilizes his expertise in child development to ensure that products are age appropriate. He has worked as a creative director and fashion designer for notable brands including Astor & Ivy, Perry Ellis and Ports 1961 Menswear.

    As a child style expert and gay dad, Gary often contributes to The Huffington Post, The Bump, Mommybites and Well Rounded NYC, among others – educating parents on top US-made products for children.

    In addition to overseeing Oliver & Adelaide, Gary teaches fashion history and styling at several NYC fashion colleges, including Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT).
