Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending Kids Fashion Week: petitePARADE a bi-annual showcase of children’s designers. The collections featured ranged from toddler to teen styles. This year the event took place at Bathhouse Studios in Manhattan. I attended the afternoon show that included Aria Children’s Clothing, Biscotti & Kate Mack, as well as Dillonger—which I loved. The execution of the collections and the talent of the young models made for an exciting show.
A favorite place for my family is the American Museum of Natural History with its massive permanent collection. The museum was founded well over a century ago, but the museum consistently integrates multimedia to update the halls and exhibitions. There are also hands on opportunities for kids, like touch carts and the Discovery Room which is always my son’s first stop. Most recently, my family attended the space show and viewed a special exhibition, Nature’s Fury which did not disappoint.
