Tavi's old hat
Playing the age card in fashion is a losing game-especially in this world of extremes.
Tween blogger Tavi better watch her Rodarte clad back-kids were everywhere at New York fashion week-including the catwalk. At the end of his show Eric Kim brought out his baby, in braces and skull print beanie to a chorus of coos (at least from the women still ovulating).
Then my fash partner spotted this tiny tot at the tents today, who she was told by her Mum is ''...in her second season." At not yet 2 years of age.
On the last day of fashion week I too noticed several tiny trendspotters, including a six year old wearing a burlesque mini topper. I didn't photograph her, I felt she should not be encouraged.
However, check out these three gorgeous girlies lining up for the J. Mendel show and busting some casual and age appropriate downtown chic.
They'll have to knock those pretty smiles off their faces if they want to get ahead in fashion though. Start practising your pouts ladies.
It's child's play.
