In 2014 #YMC Co-Founders and longtime friends Sharon Feldstein (Jonah Hill and Beanie Feldstein’s Mom) and Patsy Noah (Adam Levine’s Mom) were brought together by the White House along with other moms, including Terria Joseph (Alicia Keys’ mom) to do a PSA for the Affordable Care Act. Inspired by the amazing group of women and leaders involved and immediately recognizing the power in the “Your Mom Cares” concept, Sharon, Patsy, and Terria received permission from the White House to take ownership of the brand and #ymc was born.

Front Row Fashion Challenge: Kids Edition!

@naomicastelo

The Global Covid-19 pandemic has put a halt to large gatherings and events since Spring 2020. Fashion Week in major cities is either virtual or has a very small socially distanced audience. Tik Tok users @evelilythrifts and @andoej both have appeared to start off the What I’d wear to Fashion Week trend in January 2021!

by Shauna Carr

#frontrowfashionchallenge or #frontrowchallenge and you will find thousands of videos! We of course wanted to see which cool kids had amazing content! Here are my faves!

Naomi Castelo @naomicastelo video is a mix of designer and fast fashion! We adoreher vibrant personality and the her sequin sleeve dress from Shein.

Mason and Mckenzie aka @sorelle.sorelle_2021 These two sisters are front row ready as they sit crossed legged donning inspired looks by Gucci, Burberry, Chanel and their own brand Sorelle Sorelle.

Marlowe @Marlowe.and.me Baby Marlowe is just so adorable in her fashionable looks. She takes us on a journey at designer shows such as Chanel, Stella Kids, Gucci, Burberry, Yeezy and Prada. The Yeezy look is spot on!

Aziya @officiallyziy is a model on the rise she is joined by her pal Tiona @tee_thediamond The girls wear their favorite brands, Heavenly Outcomes, I Am Reserved Row, Bella Bebe, and Converse. I love this video because it highlights independent children’s designers.

Eef Vicca @dolcevicca is a publicist and does a really cute video with her baby Anouk and fellow stuffed animals. “What they’d wear toNYFW from a publicist perspective.” While Baby Anouk nibbles on her Louis Vuitton bag, the stuffed animals steal the show dressed in chic inspired looks from Chloe,Versace, Ralph Lauren and Emilio Pucci. This video will definitely make you laugh out loud.

Charli @lilmsbighairdontcare showcases various fashionable looks from her closet. She does a slightly modified version opting to use Doja Cat’s song Like That. She also captures such a warm and approachable personality like a young bubbly fashion blogger! Her monochromatic first look is a show stopper, a soft pink sparkle turtleneck with soft pink satin pants. A perfect mixture of similar colors and different textures.

Little Red Fashion: The first kids fashion education company

Little Red Fashion: Fashion is for everyone

Fresh Kid Nation had the opportunity to interview one of the owners of Little Red Fashion. It’s a kids fashion education company, one of the very first ed-tech and publishing start ups that focuses on providing children with digital educational materials in arts, literacy, and STEM fields based on fashion!

Who are the owners?

Jonathan Joseph, Ryan Kendall, James Connor, Nina Gortinski, Emily Swift, Peter Wight

Hometown

Bicoastal between Fairfield County, Conneticut and Los Angeles

How is your company different from others?

Little Red Fashion is the first comprehensive kids fashion ed-tech & publishing company focused on kids 8-16. With a CSR & sustainability focus we are roll out titles digitally first, with holiday season print drops beginning in fall 2021! We are rolling out a 12 title initial slate of books for kids within that age range beginning with The Little Red Dress: A Kids Book About Fashion currently available for pre-order on our website http://www.LittleRedFashion.com. The Little Red Dress retails for $9.99 and proceeds will help us build out our apps and educational tools.

Make it Mondays with Jonathan Joseph & Emily Swift

What inspired you to create Little Red Fashion?

A few things: for one, I was inspired by my mom’s focus on empowering me as a kid through fashion to love myself and my disability, ataxic cerebral palsy. Our shared search for unique socks to cover my AFO braces led to an obsession with color, fashion, styling, textiles and more that ignited my passion for fashion. On another level I was inspired by my experiences doing luxury womenswear consulting where I become frustrated by otherwise talented individuals whose toxic views regarding body diversity & positivity drove my idea for our tag line: Fashion is for Everyone. I am committed to ensuring the next generation of fashion leaders & creatives sees an industry that sees them back.

I dream of doing my part to create a world that shows kids who love fashion that that there is a place for them no matter who they are, where they come from and what their families look like. I often say on clubhouse and to colleagues that at the end of the day I’m making the kinds of books and resources that I wish had been around when I was young and eager for more expansion in the world of fashion. Thank you so much for the opportunity to share my vision with FreshKidNation.

Tell our readers more about your Kids fashion book!

A Little Red Dress: Kids Book About Fashion

Coming this spring, this kids book describes the little red dress as it tells its life story through rich hand-painted fashion illustrations that spark imagination and teach about the inner workings of the industry through a fun rhyming story perfect for kids 8+.

The mission of this book is to translate a classic story into as many languages as possible so that any kid, anywhere can be inspired to question where clothes come from, how they relate to them and imagine themselves as part of the fashion world.

Welcome to State of Kind: A children’s online store that promotes positively and builds community!


@stellaandblaise

BrandsWhoCare is a curated collection of fashion products and partnerships that understand the importance of kids’ mental health and giving back. When you purchase any of the items linked below, a percentage of your purchase price will be donated to YourMomCares. Accessory company Light+Nine has done a collaboration with the nonprofit YourMomCares, those are the pins on the bags, pin and some bags are sold at State of Kind.

@emilykornya

Photographer Emily Kornya gives us details about her latest project and describes why she started an online shop!

I’m Emily Kornya and I am a Canadian born fashion freelance photographer residing in Europe and working with designers in children’s fashion, toys and accessories in Europe, Toronto and New York. I am known for the natural and playful style of my shoots. Working with children is an absolute joy and advocating for children’s mental health is a passion of mine. State of Kind was inspired by my passions, my life story and my intrinsic sense of purpose.

@mumofsix_kids

When brainstorming names for my online store, the question arose, what will be the values upheld by this store? At the core, I want to promote and develop a community (“state”) with a “state of mind”of positivity and “kind”ness. To honour my place of residence, the fashion sector in which I work and the age group in which I want to focus on promoting mental wellness, the German word “kind” was appropriate, as it means “child”. State of Kind is not your ordinary online shop, along with offering high quality children’s positive fashion clothing, it offers a platform & community to inspire kindness and raise awareness for children’s mental wellness.

@boboli

All brands represented by State of Kind are brands of integrity who produce high quality clothing. Each item represents messages of kindness and mental wellbeing. Photography used on the site highlights children being their authentic selves, in moments of joy. With each item sold, a percentage of the sale will be donated to a mental health charity. I hope that children wearing these positive fashion items will ignite conversations around mental wellness in children and contribute to breaking down the stigma that surrounds mental health.

@b&tkid

YourMomCares helps all children by creating and funding innovative, cutting-edge programs and solutions which have a direct impact on children’s mental health. It’s composed of a group of celebrity and influencer moms banding together with moms across America. Come meet everyone involved!

Amara and Leela are winter chic at the 2021 Inauguration

January 20, 2021 was a unique inauguration celebration at Americas capital mainly due to the pandemic as well as riots that took place just a few days ago.

Joe Biden was elected and sworn in as President of the United States and Kamala Harris the new vice president.

Kamala Harris doesn’t have any children but she does have stepchildren, a niece, Meena Harris and great nieces, whom she adores! These two cuties stole the spotlight in leopard print jackets created by I Love Plum! A children’s apparel company based in NYC!

Their coats were inspired by jackets worn by Kamala as a young girl!

These coats are truly one of a kind designed and sewn by Sydney Hawes
