Designer Dress Up


Kids love to play dress up, so why not offer them some of the most avant-garde clothes around for such a playful transformation? In the latest Purple magazine, half-pint models ham it up for photographer Ryan McGinley in a spread titled “We don’t need no education,” appropriately inspired by the anti-establishment message of Pink Floyd’s classic “The Wall.” Donning the most-wanted designs from the F/W 09 runways, looks included head-to-toe Chanel, Givenchy and Rodarte, all admittedly a huge leap from the days of OshKosh B’Gosh. The eye-opening editorial is just more evidence that fashion is becoming more democratic and ageless.

Previous Fashion Office Buzz reports detailed the inspiring styling of other mini-trendsetters, including Tavi Williams of blog Style Rookie and Surface to Air’s forward-thinking graphics for kids.
