PINT-sized fashionistas will be put through their paces on Thursday, taking to the runway for Kidz Fashion Week.
The annual event, now in its fourth year, will showcase the spring summer trends for toddlers through to teens from established brands such as Target, Best & Less and Betts as well as emerging and independent brands including Chi Khi, Mini Raxevsky and Sudo Kids.
Swim, active and dance wear will also be on show from brands including Juicy Peach Active Wear, Diva Dance Australia, Pink Lemon Dancewear and Radicool Australia while The AFL Store will offer something for mini footy fans.
Terri Svoronos, Melbourne businesswoman and founder of Kidz Fashion Week, said the event’s mission was to promote inclusiveness and diversity by encouraging children of all backgrounds to be involved.
“The purpose of our Kidz Fashion Week events are to embrace individuality and diversity, no matter what background, religion, shape or size, we want to help nurture confidence,” she said.
“As a parent, I have learnt that having fun and fostering a child’s confidence are integral to happiness and success in their future.”
Among the pocket rockets set to steal the spotlight are stars of the stage and screen, including cast members of House Husbands, Offspring, Neighbours and The Bodyguard musical.Anna Byrne, Fashion reporter, Herald Sun
