Thought London Fashion Week was only about women’s clothing? Think again!
Mini Mode returned for a second season this London Fashion Week with another standout show. The show aims to shine a unique spotlight on kids’ fashion, showcasing both established and emerging childrenswear designers from around the globe.
Held this past Saturday at LSO St Luke’s – normally home to London Symphony Orchestra – it featured both an industry show and a consumer show.
The industry half featured the latest collections for SS19, whereas the latter included see-now buy-now clothing and accessories for the upcoming autumn season.
Between catwalk shows, attendees were treated to a variety of entertainment, from child DJs to singers, with the London-based dance company Absolute Bollywood closing the event.
Brands taking to the catwalk included Baby favourites Hunter + Boo, Small Stories and Zoobug, as well as Dot to Dot London award winners and two graduate collections.
Kimberley Walsh also debuted her Kimba Kids range at the show, her first foray into childrenswear design that’s available now at Next.
Founded by British childrenswear designer Amanda Rabor, the show was formed to establish a new and consistent platform for the kids’ fashion market, while at the same time empowering kids and building their self esteem.
