As we mentioned in part one of the fashion forward conference recap, this first-ever fashion and style conference was an incredible success where bloggers learned everything on how push their brand to the next level within the fashion, beauty and style categories as well as receive incredible tips and insight on how to successfully grow their brand while also networking and watching fashion shows.
Another fun part of the show was the adorable kids' fashion show where children of all ages wore clothing from one of our favorite brands, Tea Collection. As a brand renowned for their dedication to global fashion for kids 0-12, you can be sure to discover everything from classic Asian styles and colors to unique styles from Brazil and everything in between.
At the conference, the cute kids arrived ready to walk the runaway where they received fun hairstyles from Cozy Cuts and fashionable shoes from Stride Rite. They also waited in the Fashion Forward dressing room where they could design and color their own t-shirts and leggings and design lunchboxes for kids in need thanks to Polkadot What.
Wearing their signature printed floral designs for girls and adorable striped shirts and sweaters for boys, the kids were natural as they posed and made their way down the red carpet. This fashion show also included some chic and gorgeous maternity looks from Ingrid & Isabel. Renowned for their signature belly bands, the show included stunning capes, dresses and sweaters for moms-to-be modeled by Liza Huber (Sage Spoonfuls); Maria Colaco (Plus Lily) and Nicole Daley (DALEY PR).
After the show, guests were invited to check out interactive stations featuring Snugli, Polkadot What, Stride Rite, Ingrid & Isabel and Votre Vu where they had the chance to learn more about the brands and their new products. While looking around, I loved checking out the Snugli station that included an updated product line with a new stroller, car seat and insert and high chair featuring fashionable and on-trend prints that parents can style themselves. I also really liked how compact the stroller was and how easy it maneuvered throughout the space.
The Polkadot What station was also a lot of fun as I checked out the latest collection of stylish leggings featuring stars, circles, hearts and triangles in fun colors that little girls will love (check out our recent review here). Stride Rite was another favorite where I had the chance to check out the latest trends for fall (full review coming soon) including their sneakers and boots that are comfortably designed for kids' growing and active feet! Votre Vu was a fun station to explore as I sampled their delicious Snap Dragon juice and learned more about their naturally-based skin care products. The gorgeous maternity looks from Ingrid & Isabel were also on display featuring modern and fashionable designs to make every mama-to-be feel and look amazing during pregnancy.
