Each fashion season Petite Parade and Vogue Bambini presents kids fashion week in New York City. The La Petite Peach team was dazzled by the fashions, and mini modelestas that graced the runways. This year, one of my favorite photographers, Masha Maltsava, shot the runway looks for us, and it took weeks to pick our favorites (we wanted to feature them all!). My absolute favorite trends this season are the florals, which we have seen in adult fashion, and I cannot get enough of it! Hope you enjoy this S/S 2013 preview.

    Hi. I have a daughter who is willing to model… Paid or non paid. She is currently taking commercial print & runway classes. She has done one fashion show so far. But it’s hard to get auditions because we are from Louisiana. We are willing to travel so if you can please inform me when open auditions come up we would really appreciate it. Thank you!

  6. […] petitePARADE’s Kids Fashion Week runway show took place this past weekend in Chelsea. Produced in collaboration with VOGUE Bambini, Conde Nast’s magazine for children’s fashion worldwide, the event featured five up-and-coming kidswear designers: CCandy, IMOGA, Alivia Simone, Mischka Aoki and Bonnie Young. Members of the RUUM American Kid’s Wear team attended in support of catwalk queens Chance Combs (aka Sean “Diddy” Combs’ daughter) and her BFF Harper Tillman, who are also celebrity models for RUUM’s first print campaign. Chance’s mom Sarah Chapman was in the audience as well — as was our mini-intern, Amelia Blumberg, decked out in RUUM for her own model moment. Enjoy the front row photos above, and check out more behind-the-scenes shots on La Petite Peach! […]
