Beginning with SS2017, NYFW will finally present childrenswear collections. After the acclaimed success of a few test presentations, the New York based producers make it official, thanks to a partnership between FTL Moda and Posh Kids Magazine which is focused on debuting the first official Kids Collection Showcase at New York Fashion Week.
Designer platform FTL Moda believes that NYFW (and fashion overall) should be inclusive. At its runway show, The Revolution Continues, the brand highlights models that wouldn’t ordinarily be seen on a catwalk, like Madeline Stuart, who was born with Down syndrome, and Shaholly Ayers, who will walk without her prosthetic arm. FTL Moda always saves seats for the public, so you can preview designs from some of its labels, including Italy’s FuMo Bespoke and Paris’ Lulu et Gigi, on NYC’s most inspiring runway.
"We received many inputs in the past few years, from the industry, media, bloggers, about the need to create an official and permanent opportunity for childrenswear designers to present next to women RTW. We have been researching, evaluating, and, finally, working on making this a real appointment." - Maximo Hamilton, CEO of Posh Kids Magazine.
"Children's collections proved to be extremely appreciated in the few tests we took during recent seasons. And we found in Posh Kids Mag the perfect partner to magnify our diversity-enabled platform sticking to our standards of excellence and continued research in innovation," - Ilaria Niccolini, producer of FTL MODA.
