They’re cute, sassy and stylish. Child magazine the authority on Raising Kids with Smarts and Style had the help of today’s hottest children’s designers host THE fashion show for the youngest fashionistas. For the second season in the show, the darling Simmons girls Ming Lee and Aoki wore Baby Phat from the girls line while siblings of movie star Lindsay Lohan Dakota and Aliana were cute and precocious as they strutted down the runway. Catherine Malandrino specially designed clothes for her son, Oscar. Proud poppa, Curtis Jackson, better known in the music world as “50 Cent” was on hand to support his son, Marquis Jackson, as he walked for G-Unit apparel with his dad’s club anthem “In the Club” playing in the background. Many of the tots were in awe as they passed 50 cent who was seated in the front row. With this being the only children’s runway show under the tents in Bryant Park, many designers participated for a great charity behind the show: Free Arts NYC. Designers such as Cynthia Rowley, Bill Blass, Tory Burch, DKNY, Sean John, Lucy Sykes, Tocca, Sonia Rykiel, Tommy Hilfiger, Nicole Miller, Marie-Chantal, Phat Farm and Jill Stuart unveiled one-of-a-kind fall looks.
Child magazine and Free Arts NYC hosted a live auction on www.child.com via eBay where select runway looks were auctioned off to the highest bidder, with 100% of the proceeds going to assist in the continual bringing of the arts into the lives of at-risk children and their families.
