The big news in the fashion industry this week is the first-ever Global Kids Fashion Week, which premiered in London on the 19th of March at Freemason’s Hall, Covent Garden. This groundbreaking event was sponsored by the luxury childrenswear website, AlexandAlexa, which was founded in 2007 by the husband and wife duo Alex Theopanous and Alexa Till.
The event featured two runway shows—a sneak preview of designer childrenswear collections and trends for the autumn/winter 2013-2014 season as well as the current trends for spring/summer 2013. So, if you want your daughter to join the ranks of Suri Cruise, Matilda Ledger, or Willow Smith as an adorable little fashionista, here’s what you need to know when you’re buying childrens clothes this year. While your kids were likely not even born in the ‘90s, the decade is nevertheless a big influence for autumn/winter 2013-2014. John Galliano previewed an adorable black and white houndstooth skirt with sparkly embellishments, while Milly Minis previewed classic shift dresses and Peter Pan collars on her adorable models. Jottum’s little princesses wore metallic dresses, carrying the current high shine trend into next season, while little Chloe models were clad in more neutral hues like pale pink and biscuit.
Wondering what your little fashionista should wear this season? The nautical look is on-trend right now, and items like an adorable red tutu skirt from NONOsense and a navy and white striped dress from Rachel Riley are now being sold on the AlexandAlexa website. Denim is also big for spring/summer 2013, and your daughter will look quite stylish in a ruffle denim dress from Burberry or a pair of coloured jeans in pale pink from Diesel, both of which are available on the AlexandAlexa site as well. One last trend that should be mentioned is metallics, which manifest themselves in super cute childrenswear and accessories for spring/summer 2013. Among some of the best pieces available this year are a pair of gold metallic jeans from SuperTrash, a metallic blue satchel from Zatchel, and a rose glitter cardigan from Mini-A-Ture.
As well as the latest fashion trends, Global Kids Fashion Week featured some super fun activities for the kids in attendance. A “mini manicure” bar was set up so that girls could have their nails filed and painted vibrant and sparkly colours, and a PhotoBooth was installed so that little fashionistas could take pictures together—what a fun way to celebrate kid’s fashion! All proceeds from the event benefitted the Kids Company charity, which has supported at-risk children in London since 1966. Only time will tell what the future has in store for Global Kids Fashion Week, but we can only predict that it will grow bigger and better in the years to come.
