The Kids are All Right. New York Fashion Show Week for KidsElinaMamaista
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.
