The first-ever Global Kids’ Fashion Week has officially made its debut (we’re surprised it even took this long considering how many brands are branching out into children’s lines), featuring mini versions of all the catwalk shows we love, except so much more adorable. 

According to the Daily Mail, GKFW kicked off in London this week, with a mix of both established and emerging designers, including Paul Smith Junior, Junior Gaultier, Chloe, Little Marc Jacobs, I Pinco Pallino, Suzanne Ermann, Anne Kurris and Supertrash, showing their miniature clothes. Photos: Dave M.

“I think it's important to celebrate children's fashion to show everybody just how amazing it is, and women and men all around the world wear amazing clothes so it's really important that children can too,” said international model Portia Freeman, who modeled with her own son.

Kids bounced down the runway in everything from pink faux -fur coats to metallic and subtly sweet designs with bows and accessories. All in all, it looked pretty adorable. Photos: Dave M. Benett/Getty Images

"Kids' fashion is playful, fun and innovative. We all believe it deserves its own dedicated platform," said Alex Theophanous, founder and CEO of AlexandAlexa.com. "This is why we are so proud to be supporting the very first Global Kids’ Fashion Week. With this event, we aim to put children's fashion on the map worldwide."

Adult cloths on little kids is nothing more than a fashion joke ! And the new look for "Disney's Minnie Mouse" is just another French dagger in Disney's back. They've always hated the  Paris Disneyland  that's why it all but went belly up until "Michael Jackson and an Arab Sheik came forward with a lot of money! It's no loner Euro-Disney; But Paris Disneyland with heavy attractions to Jules Vern (a Frenchman)

Only the top 2% can afford to dress their kids in these outfits.  We continue to give kids the impression they are entitled to have the best of everything at an early age.
