Moms to take to the catwalk in New York

New York, Jan 15 (IANS) In a first-of-its-kind at the global arena, a fashion show only for mothers will take place at the New York Fashion Week this year.

The “Fashionable Mom Show” would feature styles targeting busy mothers and will be modelled specially by moms, according to the Daily Mail online.

The show will give women inspiration to wear outfits that can be easily transformed to take a mom from homes to workplaces to evenings out.

Partly the brainchild of Melissa Gerstein and Denise Albert — also known as “The Moms”, stars of WNBS show, “Moms & the City and a Dad Named David” — the fashion show would be an attempt to cater to the needs of America’s 84 million moms.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, director of fashion at the Lincoln Center in New York, said that while fashion and motherhood were “inextricably connected”, navigating a balance between the two was never easy.

Supermodels Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima are all mothers, as are Kate Moss and Gisele Bundchen.
