Y is for...Youngsters at fashion week.

Once again, my husband's Wall Street Journal has provided me with some interesting news. In an article in this morning's paper, they reveal that people are bringing their kids to runway shows. Yes, it's true. I don't even really want to bring my kid to Starbucks, much less bring him to a FREAKING RUNWAY SHOW. What are these people thinking? I am just picturing it...

You wear some amazing outfit with the perfect shoes and perfect handbag, only to have your kid crawling all over you and spilling his cheerios on your "fashion week attire". Is there anything more miserable? Kids are not an accessory (no matter how cute they are). period.

Oh and on the topic of kids at fashion week, you may have heard of Tavi. The 13 year old very successful blogger who attended Paris fashion week as well as NY fashion week. She is stirring things up in the fashion world, and I am not sure what to think of it. There are many people that are disgusted with her, and others that totally support her unique style and viewpoint.

On one hand I think it's amazing that she has done so much at such a young age, and good for her for having such a passion for this industry. On the other hand, she's 13. She has the rest of her life to be traveling the world and being exposed to the world of fashion. Shouldn't she be in school? Hanging with friends? Doing things only a 13 year old can do?  She is one lucky girl for being able to do all these wonderful things...but is 13 too young? Any thoughts?
