With no children of her own, Aliya Jiwa started a baby clothing company called the Spunky Stork out of the kitchen of her Manhattan apartment. Yes, thekitchen. Why? In short, she was getting tired of buying pastel-hued, butterfly-slash-teddy bear-riddled baby shower presents for her friends… all of whom are emphatically anti-pastel anything. Two years later, she still has no children, but she quit her job as a hospitality executive and now operates her online organic clothing business in a proper studio. So, what makes a childless, spicy-food eating, cowboy boot-wearing, British Indian an expert on kid’s clothing? Nothing. But visit her site to see her ridiculously adorable designs!
