When Juliet sees pictures of mommy at fashion shows without her, she’ll ask, “Mommy how come I’m not there??”  And when I explain that I went to the show alone, she makes me promise, “next time you bring me.”  So whenever there is a kids’ fashion show or a fashion presentation (which I find easiest to take a toddler to), I do try and invite her so long as it doesn’t conflict with her school schedule.  This brings us to the Rookie USA kids Fashion Show held at Moynihan Station this NYFW.

It was a must-see mommy and me show.   Haddad Brands presented it on Thursday, September 8th with hosts NBA great, Ray Allen and his wife Shannon and charitable partners, JDRF and Ray of Hope Foundation.  It was a series of kids’ fashion shows featuring top brands including:  Converse, Jordan, Nike, Hurley and Levi’s.

Breaking up the series of 5 runway shows were live performances from Live Deejays, DJ AMira and Kayla, singer Bobbi MacKenzie, and break dancers, Street Justice Crew.  The breaks not only logistically allowed for backstage prep with all the celebrity mini-models, but also riled up the audience’s excitement and anticipation for what was to come.  I tell you, the energy in this room was palpable!  And I was so thankful we got to see so much with one sitting!  It was truly an entertaining NYFW experience!

Once the shows were over the crowd was on such a high.  None of us could stop smiling.  Just too much cuteness all around!img_0085 img_0087

When your outfits match the Empire State building, you need to capture the NY moment.

Matching Outfits from the Vicky Zhang NYFW Runway

I’m a sucker for mommy and me matching outfits as evidenced here.  So when I received the NYFW invite from Vicky Zhang, I knew I had to take my mini-me for a truly fab mother-daughter fashion week experience.

I appreciated that there were coordinated family looks, items for the sons and even husbands.  But not everything was translatable and wearable in the States.  The ones that were are pictured below.

As you can see, the looks all have a strong Asian influence to the design, and a light, gauzy feel to them.  The below formal outfits though could be worn for dressier occasions (that is if they widened the mom’s chest portion of the dress, in order to prevent a Janet Jackson fashion faux pas).0_99994500_1473524094

Juliet enjoyed picking out her favorite looks.  The one below was a favorite for both of us!  Don’t you just love the off-the-shoulder trendy detail? So chic!

The best and most memorable part of the show however was the finale.  Cutest thing ever!  All the kids, and I mean ALL the kids from the show just surprised the heck out of everyone by jumping onto the stage chasing after one another, squealing down the entire runway!  You couldn’t help but feel the joy and celebrate the finale with them!  My face actually hurt from smiling and laughing so hard!

How adorable is this??  This was our view.

Juliet was very thankful of the colorful pin cushion that she was gifted (found this in the front row goody bag).  And I find it such an endearing little souvenir from the show.  I remember my mom having the very same pincushion when I was growing up and now Juliet is infatuated with it. Here she is holding her new gift (and wearing her new Honua bracelets).img_0131 Thanks for reading and if you want to follow along with our daily adventures, make sure to follow @fabgabblog on Instagram where we’ve shared some of our NYFW  Instagram stories and daily outfits.
