events, kids in motion

These shoes are made for walking

The kids had their first ever fashion modeling gig for pediped Singapore at Seb’s Bistro this morning. Together with 6 other little friends, they took to the runway to showcase pediped’s latest Fall/Winter 2012 collection.

None of the kids had ever done this before so it was mildly chaotic but in a super cute sort of way as they walked out in pairs all decked in their gorgeous pediped shoes and stylish outfits sponsored by Elly, a homegrown kids apparel store.

To prepare for this, we gave the kids a pep talk last night and tried to explain the concept of a catwalk.

Kirsten was like “Catwalk? Like this? Meowww…” then proceeded to get down on all fours for an impressive cat-walking demonstration.

“Nice try, but not even close,” I replied, before hastily youtubing some kids fashion show videos for them to watch.

Their reactions couldn’t have been more different. Kirsten loved the idea of dressing up all pretty and being the centre of attention while Truett thought for a moment and said, “Um, I think I’m going to be shy.”

Turned out that they both got really nervous when the show was about to start so Tru gripped his sister’s hand really tight and she got upset at being grabbed so she shrieked and punched him in the arm, which resulted in a bizarre grabbing-yanking-punching exchange the moment they stepped up to the runway. But other than that, everything went really well and it was all peachy in the end. More or less.

Here’s Kirsten in her Flex Maggie White Sandal and Truett rocking the Flex Jett Navy/Red Sneaker.

      Ya we wanted to!! But there was quite a lot of mayhem and we were a little frazzled running after the kids. Maybe next time I’ll appoint a videographer heh..

      Actually this is his nervous look. He makes his serious face when he’s stressed or nervous it’s quite cute.

    I love the one of Tru licking his lips. He looks very grown up here, by the way, nervousness notwithstanding.

    They both are born models! Though they are not smiling, one is extremely cool and the other one looks cute. Love Kirsten’s simple dress too. Do they get to take home the clothes and the shoes after shooting? I think they deserve them :-)
