Every year, New York Fashion Week turns out the most amazing fashion for women and men, with one glaring exception. Kids! There has never been a fashion week for kids and petitPARADE wanted to bridge this obviously glaring gap with an amazing week of runway shows. While you won’t be seeing Anna Wintour or a-list celebs in the front rows, there were plenty of oglers craning their heads to rate these pint-sized creations. Think Project Runway for the kiddy set. Bold faced names such as Cavalli, Sonya Rykiel, Simonetta, Monnalisa and Miss Grant showcased their spring 2011 collections and what a show it was.
While I couldn’t make it out to see any of the catwalk fun having finally escaped NY for the beach, I was lucky enough to recruit Tobi Spino, a former top model agent, photoshoot producer turned writer and now The Urban Suburban Mom blogger to get the scoop on the must-see shows. With two kids, this was a nice return for the glam mama to her fashion roots — albeit on a much tinier runway.
Check all the looks after the jump…
Miss Grant: Flirty, fun and the ultimate in girling up you girly girl. Flowers, sequins & ruffles, oh yeah!
Monnalisa: Taking cool to a whole new level of attitude with frills, metallics and touch of class.
Love Therapy: Is everything you know and love Fiorucci to be. Full of expression, fun, cool, and in a league of it’s own. If Betty White can host SNL off a FB campaign, why can’t we hope for the same but with end result resurrecting the one of a kind Fiorucci Boutique? The world would most certainly be a hipper and much better dressed place.
