Anna Mittelstadt launches new children's clothing line, Mitt & Maddie

Chattanooga resident Anna Mittelstadt, founder of the women's clothing line Anna Victoria, has just launched her latest venture: Mitt & Maddie, a line of high-quality clothes for babies and big kids. Retail prices begin at $36. All styles are currently available for purchase online. 

“After my sister had her first child last year, I saw, through her experience, how challenging it can be for parents to find truly high-quality styles for their little ones at prices that don’t break the bank," said Ms. Mittelstadt. "This realization led me to explore the idea of stepping into the children’s marketplace. Now, with the launch of Mitt & Maddie, parents have a new brand they can trust to offer high-quality, well-designed clothes for their children – at prices they can afford.” 

Mitt & Maddie will release new styles for girls and boys, sizes 3 months-6, on a regular, rolling basis. All styles are currently made in Chattanooga. 

Ms. Mittelstadt founded her inaugural and eponymous brand, Anna Victoria, in 2012. Since then, the line has been sold online and in boutiques around the southeast. Anna is a graduate of Chattanooga’s Girls Preparatory School (GPS) and of Auburn University.
