Mini hipsters in the United States had an opportunity to strut their stuff this past weekend on a New York City runway as part of the semi-annual kid’s fashion week sponsored by petitePARADE and Vogue Bambini. The shows featured a wide variety of kids’ fashion including pieces by Pale Cloud, Cupcakes & Pastries, Diesel, Bonnie Young, Sperry’s, Miss Blumarine, and Reina Mora, just to name a few.
Trends that we saw for girls included high socks, high-low hems, and funky sneakers. Pairing fun girly styles with more edgy and funky pieces was a popular trend amongst the girls on the runway.

For boys, beanies and hats, funky sneakers and boots, and unique graphic tees were all seen on the runway.
The crowds at the shows were filled with moms (and dads!), celebrities, designers, and many stylish young men and women!
