Welcome to

Let Clothes Be Clothes
Allies of Let Toys Be Toys, Let Clothes Be Clothes is a grassroots campaign calling on retailers in the UK to end gender stereotyping in the design and marketing of children's clothing, shoes and accessories.
Since children are child-shaped until puberty (with the same measurements on high street sizing charts), we believe separate boys/girls ranges are not only unnecessary, but exploit harmful gender stereotypes that limit children to outdated ideas about the role of men and women in society.
Let Clothes Be Clothes is calling on retailers in the UK to adopt a unisex approach to selling childrenswear, providing real choice, prevent bullying and help build a more equal society.
