Children’s Wear Inspires on Project Runway

Season 7 of Project Runway is in full swing! In the recently aired Episode 6 “A Little Bit of Fashion,” the designers create a fashionable children’s look … and receive the surprise assignment of designing an adult companion outfit.

Guest judge Tory Burch – and all the regular judges agree that the winning look is the kind of outfit that little girls would just love to wear (and the companion outfit is stunning, too).

It’s interesting to me that the show producers chose Tory as the guest judge for this episode, as she’s certainly known for her adult fashion. What great exposure for her children’s line, Little Darlings.

I really love all the Project Runway scenes where the child models visit the designer’s work room. They have a blast – and the designers themselves reveal some pretty interesting things about their creative process. Many have that “little-me” attitude, when it comes to designing age-appropriate children’s wear … yet winning designer Seth Aaron Henderson – who’s a dad – seems to get his “client,” so to speak. He knows that kids want to wear clothes that are fun, comfortable and fashionable, too.

I especially like Jay Nicolas Sario’s design – what elegance!

What do you think?
