These kid-inspired couture examples range from childlike runway shows to playful designer catalogs that celebrate innocence and imagination. As fashion designers re-embrace opulent and conceptual themes, their return to childhood references is also prevalent.
In the case of these examples, stuffed animals, toy soldiers and paper craft projects all act as a creative inspiration for some of the industry's top names. While alternative youth cultures are no stranger to kid-inspired fashions, luxe labels are also taking notice of the popular street style fads.
Standouts from this list include designer Jeremy Scott's imaginative creations for his own label, Adidas Originals and Moschino along with Sibling's entertaining and whimsical runway staples that are often infused with sculptural details.
