What a great affair the Parsons 2014 Fashion Show was a couple of weeks ago! This was the inaugural parade in their very new building and fabulous auditorium on 5th Avenue. And the talent and creativity were positively oozing off the runway. Every time I see a Parsons Show, I have waves of nostalgia, remembering my graduating year Fashion Parade when I was in design school quite a few moons ago.

So, of course, I’m featuring the three graduates who had the top collections in Childrenswear, Grace Kang, Ashley Yoon Chang, who won the title of the Best Childrenswear designer for this year, and Erica Kim.

And if you scroll down, you will also see a taste of the womenswear and menswear fabulous collections. I wish all of these bright, young stars great success and fulfillment in their fashion careers.

Moschino Kids, Spring-Summer 2014

June 4th, 2014

intro-moschino-nouvelle-collection-2014

 

Moschino was originally created in 1983 by the late Franco Moschino, and is well known for its “classico con twist”, (classical with a twist) style. The current head of design, Rossella Jardini, has successfully taken Franco’s humor and style and kept it relevant. And the Moschino Kids, Spring-Summer 2014 is no exception. The primary colors teamed with crisp white, black and neutral summer tans are what I think of when I think of Italian fashion done well. And the motifs are fun and funky and yes, humorous. I’m not sure I like this return to the 80′s style of huge logos! (see the t-shirt second photo from the bottom).

Jean Paul Gaultier Couture for Girls

May 29th, 2014

afp-gaultier-kids-line

 

Jean Paul Gaultier has introduced a couture line for children adding to his prêt-à-porter label he started in 2009. Launching for spring/summer 2014, the range will be updated every six months.

His first designs for the new line were inspired by the finale dress from the spring/summer couture 2013 collection – when the styles were first seen, as little girls appeared from underneath the model’s voluminous gown (see below). The mini tulle dresses – available in ivory and pink – have silk bodices and an accompanying bolero adorned with Swarovski crystals. A limited run of 90 pieces have been produced in each colourway, and went on sale recently, priced at $1,200 each. The theme is Princess all the way. And at that price, you might have to actually be a princess or the mother of one to have that in your budget!

Burberry Kids – Spring/Summer 2014

May 14th, 2014

burberry_kids

Burberry Kids, Spring/Summer 2104 is a very tight range in eye-popping colors and unexpected touches like huge red polka dots. Their classic trenches are of course,  a part of this range too. Check out the video below to see the whole collection with a bunch of super, active kids!

I’m just wondering if this range is non-toxic yet. Burberry is phasing out toxic chemicals in their production by June of this year, so maybe not. But good for them and quite a few other major, high end labels.

So here is the little kiddo parading in the streets of NYC in her new Desigual Agua Sweater and her Jordache Jeggings . She’s looking so grown up in this big girl gear. Sigh. And of course, she couldn’t resist playing the clown. Shoots are always very active with Solène!

Now for some fab and fearless Brit fashion for girls! Miss Hall Spring/Summer 2014 is a blast and it’s their very first season.

Miss Hall caters to ages 4-12 years with a quintessentially British look, but a striking boldness – like that daring blue tunic top above. The mix of textures and artistic prints is nicely tied together for this debut. And take a look at the unexpected summery tropical print kaftan.

Every piece is designed and individually made in England and the finishes are beautiful. Take a look at the Miss Hall website to see their full collection for this summer.
