About Us

Kazumi Arikawa, Kids Own the Universe About Us

 Hi, I’m Kazumi! I live in Los Angeles, but I’m a Tokyo native. I went to college in New York City and I studied fashion and textile design. I had a wonderful and enriching experience working for prestigious fashion companies like Ralph Lauren, Helmut Lang and Vince. Then I met my boyfriend, we had our baby and moved to Los Angeles. 

I created Kids Own the Universe after struggling to find baby accessories for the busy modern mom. I have gone through mountains of specialized bags, carriers, and outfits made for moms but I couldn’t quite find what I really really wanted. After making several prototypes in my own studio at home, and getting honest feedback from mom friends and family, Kids Own the Universe was born.

Kids Own the Universe blends my sense of humor with functional design that addresses just what you need. Nothing more, nothing less, and a bit cheeky. Every product is designed in my own studio by me, and I have so much fun designing them. I hope you have just as much fun wearing them!
