Trendy Kids at Seoul Fashion Week
Seoul Fashion Week ended April 1, and a developing trend emerged amidst the clothing, the celebrities, and the general fanfare: Kids. Specifically, kids dressed to the nines, accompanying their parents to shows, according to High Snobiety.
Street style at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza wasn’t just worn by adults. Child-size fashion imitates designer brands. A street market carries off-brand versions of high fashion pieces, so parents can dress their children as trendily as themselves.
The most popular brands in North Korea at the moment are Yeezy, Vetements and Supreme, High Snobiety reported. Copycat designs appear in the niche market for ultra-stylish parents.
Hwangsung Park, a designer for D-Antidote, brought his kid out to his show. Korean celebrities will also take their children to shows.
Of course, American celebrities dress their kids up as well. Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West come to mind; in particular daughter North West often appears in pictures as fashionably attired as her parents and other older relatives. The celebrity kid, already a (likely unwitting) fashionista at three years old, has been espied in brands like Vetements and Yeezy—the latter unsurprising since it’s her father’s label.
Kardashian West and West also announced this January that they would be releasing a kids’ fashion line, People reported. They even had North West model some of the pieces.
And other fashion names have brought kids’ clothing into their collections or even into their runway shows. Victoria Beckham’s new Target collab, due to be released on April 9, features many children’s pieces. And on the high fashion side of things, Dolce & Gabbana’s fall 2017 collection, which showed back in February, had outfits for adults and kids, sending all ages down the catwalk.
While kiddie high fashion might leave some people bemused, given how quickly children can outgrow or damage clothing, the trend persists.
