London - Mini Mode, a new platform dedicated to showcasing children's fashion, is set to host its second show during London Fashion Week's Spring/Summer 2019 edition this autumn.
Set to take place on Saturday, September 15 at LSO St. Luke's, Old Street in London, the second edition of the children's fashion week follows on from its successful inaugural event this February. Founded by UK children's wear designer Amanda Rabor, Mini Mode aims to offer a unique spotlight on children's wear, ranging from toddlers to teenagers.
"Following the phenomenal success of our inaugural show, we are excited to announce our second show of the year," said Amanda Rabor, founder of Mini Mode in a statement. "It's time for the kids market to be taken seriously and recognised as the economic powerhouse it is. This event promises to deliver something different, unique and fabulous," "The venue is absolutely stunning and is based in London's Old Street area. This show promises to leave its mark on the fashion industry in a big way."
Mini Mode aims to focus on empowerment and building self-esteem among children while offering a new business and fashion model for the UK industry that promotes inclusivity on every level. Similar to its format for its debut event, Mini Mode will host an industry-specific show as well as a consumer-facing show. The Industry Show will feature the latest SS19 collections and is open to industry members only, while the Consumer Show will showcase see-now, buy-now collections for AW18 and will be open to the general public.
"We will be featuring an eclectic range of kidswear designers from the UK and globally in both our Industry Show and Consumer Show on 15th September 2018 during London Fashion Week," added Rabor. "Mini Mode is always about fashion first and our inaugural show showcased some unexpected innovative brands like the Alexander Evans Experience aimed at kids aged 11-16, which has been in high demand since the show. We have our fingers on the pulse of current and future trends, which sets us apart from other kids fashion shows."
Mini Mode will be supporting the Osteopathic Centre for children charity and will donate 20 percent of all ticket sales to the charity.
