Just when you thought Fashion Month had come to a close, petitePARADE, the bi-annual event that brings children’s designer runway collections to the forefront, presented its tenth season of shows this past Saturday at Spring Studios in NYC. As an expert on all things fashion week from New York to Paris, we can state—with conviction—that this was by far the cutest of all catwalks. Jourdan, Kendall, Gigi, and Karlie, step aside—the mini models who took to the runway at petitePARADE have style, attitude, and charm in spades.

Take a peek at some of the backstage moments as the kids prepped for the shows, including the whimsical Imoga collection, which you can shop on Barneys right now. Can’t get enough of these adorable fashions? Follow @petitePARADE on Instagram for even more action from behind the scenes and head over to Barneys to see the newest kids spring collections hitting the racks.

All smiles, moments before the runway.

Lined up and ready to go!

This cutie couldn’t scare us if he tried.

If only these came in adult sizes!

Even during the hectic rush of a fashion show, there’s always time for a bit of fun.

A wide smile to match a wide brim.

A shoulder to lean on backstage.

This braid game is on point!

We hear whiskers are going to be big for fall beauty.

Tickles lead to giggles as the pre-show prep gets underway.

The moment of anticipation before hitting the catwalk is that same no matter how small you are!
