Fab Kids Get Own Show at Fashion Week

The weekend of New York Fashion Week is the unofficial “bring your kids to the shows” day. It’s a status symbol, really, proving you’re successful and cool enough to show up with an impromptu — albeit miniature — plus-one, Jennifer Lopez style (bonus points if your daughter carries a tiny Chanel bag). But if you’re a fading reality star who has enough trouble wrangling show invitations to begin with, or if you’d just rather watch your kids parade around in clothes instead of skinny models, why not hold your own fashion show starring your own children instead? That way everyone can marvel at your offspring’s cuteness with no distractions at all.

 

Enter “Kids Rock,” a fashion show that will be held at Grand Central Terminal on September 11, at 6 p.m. WWD reports that the “models” will include Teddy, daughter of Kelly Bensimon; Jeffrey Tarpley, son of Sherri Shepherd; Lil C, Jaden, Cyia, and Carter, children of New York Yankee CC Sabathia; and Amar’e Jr., Assata and Ar’e, children of New York Knick Amar’e Stoudemire. They’ll be “wearing the latest trends,” says a spokesperson for Haddad Brands, which is sponsoring the show. Stoudemire will “host,” and the labels represented (Levi’s, Converse, Jordan, and Nike) will donate items to his foundation, as well as to Kids in Distressed Situations.

Just as you’re trotting out your fall wardrobe, Fashion Week hits NYC with hundreds of designers putting out their visions for — yes — Spring 2014. The shows start Thursday and run through Sept. 12, with the major fashion hub at Lincoln Center, where some 75 designers will strut their stuff in the tents at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. But many others are heading downtown, with Jason Wu abandoning the former church on the Upper East Side for a spot all the way down on Mercer Street. Even Calvin Klein is moving his gig to the brand new Spring Studios in TriBeCa, having shown in its garment center headquarters for five years. Night birds are flying into daytime slots — the fellows at Proenza Schouler are showing at noon instead of 8 p.m., and Tommy Hilfiger trades his evening show for an 11 a.m.-er at Pier 94. Change is good, right? But the schedule is crazy and it’s a headache getting from show to show for sure — so much so that clever Advil is providing free Fashion Week transport in a red-stiletto emblazoned SUV.

London’s Fashion Round Up

Keeping it short and sweet, this week’s Fashion Round Up should really be called The News in Brief. But it’s not, so deal with it. As the heat continues outdoors, indoors the temperature’s been turned up in anticipation of London Fashion Week, which is increasingly playing on our minds. Fashion East’s SS14 line-up revealed, plus J.W. Anderson’s first ever campaign. For their 27th consecutive catwalk show, Fashion East have announced Spring Summer 14 will follow in the footsteps of Autumn Winter 13 and have invited back Ashley Williams, Claire Barrow and Ryan Lo. All young in age and relatively still new to the industry, the three designers boast a variety of influences and different aesthetics. For Claire and Ryan this marks their third London Fashion Week under the Fashion East umbrella (having both previously debuted with presentations for SS13), while Ashley – in theory at least, given past practice – still has another season with Lulu Kennedy to come.
