Fashion Week for the mini fashion mavens


How much would you pay for a toddler's dress? $15? $30? How about $500?

This week, London launched Global Kids Fashion Week, where all of the top children's designers dressed their miniature supermodels to strut their threads on the "kitten" walk.

Some of the designers included popular brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Diesel and Little Marc Jacobs, as well as some emerging labels like Finger in the Nose and Munster Kids.

I used to justify my designer kids' clothes addiction by telling my husband, "they're higher quality so they last longer!" But the first time Beckett came home with double rips in the knees of his brand-new Charlie Rocket jeans, I knew I couldn't get mad. What did I expect? He's a kid.

While I still purchase some designer labels for the kids, I've learned to mix in some Target and Old Navy for the clothes that I know are going to get a lot of wear and tear.

I've also discovered another love — consignment sales — where I've bought and sold.

And I've learned that you don't have to make a trip across the pond to see what's "in" for children's fashion. There are several local and North Carolina-based designers worth checking out including Raleigh-based Fleming Clothing and Lolly Wolly Doodle, right here in Lexington.
