There was an Industry and Consumer Show, both were amazing productions that featured chic brands, adorable models and talented young performers.

When I heard I was going to be apart of the Mini Mode LKFW I was so excited and couldn’t wait.
When I got there, back stage was buzzing with energy.
I had to get my first outfit on by Alexander Evans for the first show and then go up-stairs to hair and make-up, which I didn’t need because they said I had good skin!!!
I couldn’t wait to hit the runway again. The clothes looked great and all the children that were walking looked amazing.
It was finally time for me to hit the runway as our first guests were now seated…I walked my walk with style, people were complimenting my runway walk. I felt very humble and blessed to do what I do as a kid model.
I walked both shows wearing Loud Apparel and Alexander Evans.
I had an amazing time, there were so many talented children there. Models, singers, dancers, pianist, dj and a child host…the day was phenomenal!
