I came, I saw, I strutted. Yesterday, TheFashionableMoms put on a runway show at Lincoln Center. I plan to do a full fashion post about what I wore on Monday's style post. But here's a roundup of the coverage of the event.
The event was a resounding success. The media turnout was phenomenal and I am so proud of all the women who walked--it took some guts to strut in front of hundreds of our peers and all those cameras. When I've got some more time to reflect, I will, in the meantime here's the coverage.
From the Huffington Post article (click here for the full article)
Forget the usual vacant model stare. It was smiles and high fives with Iman as real moms of all shapes and sizes took over New York Fashion Week, working a runway Thursday with strollers and pregnant tummies, looking chic for everything from school drop-off to date night.
They walked in the first-ever "Strut: The Fashionable Mom Show," organized by two of their own at the city's Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center near Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week's tents.
They were tall, short, hourglass and your basic size 8. Clothes came from top designers like Tory Burch and Michael Kors, maternity wear from Hatch and A Pea in the Pod.
"I feel amazing," said mom model Lauren Jimeson, who is 37 weeks pregnant and strutted in a cream cocktail dress with cut-outs on the sleeves. "It's just a great message that you can be fashionable and still be a mom and still look great and feel great."
ABC news had this video:
Zimbio (click here) had the best slideshows off all the looks. Here are a few shots:

'??It was so cool,'? says Alicia Ybarbo, coauthor of '??Today'??s Moms,'? of being in the show. '??So fun and exhilarating.
You saw all different shapes and sizes '?? I'??m 4-foot-11 and proud of it. And I'??m walking a runway during Fashion Week!'?
If I've missed anything let me know and I will add to this roundup.
