Mini Mode: London’s premiere kid’s fashion week debuts during London Fashion Week
Mini Mode – London’s Premier Kid’s Fashion Week made its mark on the UK fashion calendar, as it debuted during London Fashion Week at the Hellenic Centre, 16-18 Paddington Street. Mini Mode provided a unique spotlight on kid’s fashion, showcasing both established and emerging childrenswear designers from around the globe.
The inaugural event that included two shows, for Industry and for Consumer, was a very glamourous affair and action packed with adorable ‘mini’ models showcasing the latest childrenswear collections on the runway, complete with a selection of children’s entertainment from talented young performers, including a kid’s host, DJ, pianist, singers and dancers that wowed the audience in between the main fashion shows.
The Industry show featured the latest A/W 2018 collections on the runway with VIPs, press, buyers, influencers, fashionistas and a few younger members on the #FROW. The Consumer show featured see-now-buy-now collections for S/S 2018 and was open to the general public with excitable children, stylish parents and influencers on the #FROW.
Founded by UK childrenswear designer, Amanda Rabor, Mini Mode’s vision is to establish a new and consistent platform for the kids fashion market that will be talked about from season to season. Mini Mode is also about empowerment and building self-esteem for kids, whilst contributing a new business and fashion model for the UK industry that promotes inclusivity on every level.
“London Fashion Week is iconic, and we thought that it was time to create a platform for kids fashion during the UK industry’s renowned London Fashion Week. It’s time for the kids market to be taken seriously and recognised as the economic powerhouse it is.” Amanda Rabor, Founder of Mini Mode
