Trends from the Kids Rock! runway show! #sp

The inaugural Kids Rock! runway show took place on September 11th, 2013 at Grand Central Terminal for New York Fashion Week 2014 and featured a bevy of celebrity offspring and children models walking the runway in looks from iconic brands, Levi’s®, Converse, Nike, Jordan and Nike SB. Hosted by NBA All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire, the Kid’s Rock! fashion show was dedicated to benefitting the Amar’e Stoudemire Foundation and nonprofit organization K.I.D.S. (Kids In Distressed Situations) to aid at-risk youth and children in need.

Along with Amar’e Stoudemire’s children, Amar’e Jr., Assata and Ar’e, celebrity kids who walked the runway include: Carmelo and La La Anthony’s son Kiyan, Lil’ Jon’s son DJ Young Slade, Kelly Bensimon’s daughter Thaddeus Ann,  Sherri Shepherd’s son Jeffrey Tarplay.  Taking after his showbiz mom, Jeffrey was the life of the party as he danced down the runway and giving out high fives to the professional athletes in the front row. Derek Jeter’s nephew, the children of the New York Yankees’ CC Sabathia and Angie Martinez’s son Niko saluted the crowd to cheers. The children and nephew of Orange is the New Black star Dascha Polanco, and Shameless actress Emma Kenney also strutted down the runway. In attendance to route on the kid models and to support a good cause were:  Carmelo and LaLa Anthony, Kelly Bensimon, Tyson and Kimberly Chandler, Patrick Toussaint, Po Johnson, Lil’ Jon, Jeannie Mai, Jill Martin, Angie Martinez, DJ Cassidy, Dascha Polanco, Amber Sabathia, and Sherri Shepherd. 10-year-old DJ Fulano, pint-sized deejay and style maven, spun the latest hits.

Hair authority and owner of Cozy Cuts for Kids, Cozy Friedman, and her team styled the models as they sported the hottest looks of the season. 

I was lucky enough to receive a couple items for my kids to model and try out!

The above Nike Tricot Pantsicon are great for lounging around the house, wearing to school or playing sports in them!   The colorful side stripes add just the right amount of color and can be coordinating with just about any shirt.   It has the classic Swoosh logo and is super comfortable to wear according to my six year old.  He can not wait till indoor soccer season starts to me running the field in these pants!

Continuing with the sporty styles for fashionable kids, just check out my daughter in some Converse wear!  The I love My Chucks Sweatshirt dress is perfect for these cool days.  Pair with leggings or high tops and complete the fashion statement!  Emma Kenney from Epic wore the same style dress in the fashion show.  My daughter was beyond excite to learning that someone she saw/heard in a movie was wearing the same fashion as she was!

The classic logo Converse tee is perfect for both boys and girls.  It is made of cotton, but is super soft and comfortable to wear.  Pair with jeans, running pants, etc.  It works well with just about anything.  In the cold months just layer a long sleeve tee under it to get the most wear out  of.  You can't go wrong with Converse gear!
