5 mini fashion insiders you'll see at fashion week
Fledglings in the front row
For most people, being privy to the latest collections from the world's celebrated designers come by way of their phone screens. Seen Olivier Rousteing's radical overhaul at Balmain during SS17? Thanks Instagram. If you're up-to-the-minute on the latest artwork Alessandro Michele has inducted for Gucci, chances are, you probably have Snapchat and a whole slew of social media apps tucked snugly in your back pocket. Not forgetting, digital portals (speaking of: See our take on the latest collections, here) that punch out all you need to know as soon as the last model closes the show.
Apart from the usual guest list of editors, buyers and celebrities, a younger crop of newsmakers sit tight thanks to their family tree. Perched on their parents' laps, they're adorable and usually achingly stylish, but as Condé Nast's artistic director Anna Wintour has commented, the set-up of a fashion show might be too much for a young child to handle — according to Refinery29. Well, as long as the little one doesn't do a North West and let the waterworks flow, or like Cara Delevingne, take a fur baby into the show, then why not? Here, see five precious moments of sartorial fledglings who've conquered the fashion rodeo.
