Despite the chilly temperature in NY last weekend, tots, bloggers and stylists braved the cold to attend the biannual petiteParade at Bathhouse Studios. Brands at the show were Anais & I, Imoga, Dillonger, Biscotti and Katie Mack, and Bonnie Young. I enjoyed the wonderful textures and color pallete of Aria’s girls collection. It was reminiscent of the late 1950’s era with a modern day edge, soft circle skirts and lots of tulle.
Boys brand Dillonger returned this year showcasing a cohesive collection of deep red and black accented sportswear. Imoga girls collection featured navy florals and plaids dresses accented with bronze metallic fabric. Popular 5 year old model Harper Tillman looked quite sophisticated in a Floral belted trench with faux fur collar.
One of my favorite brands Bonnie Young stunned the audience with their unique use of color and textures for girls. I adored the tween fashion ensembles, black on black textured outfits, faux fur vests, and lots of layers and metallics. Navy and black are colors you don’t normally see in the tween fashion color pallete, but the models didn’t look goth rather chich and edgy in asymmetrical hemlines.
I had a blast mingling with other bloggers, momtrepreneurs and designers. This years show was fast paced and set in ine day which gave me the opportunity to check out ENK as well as Playtime which takes place the same weekend at petitePARADE.
