Backstage: Smile by Julien Macdonald

Backstage: Smile by Julien Macdonald

Backstage at LFW! Meet the mini-models for Julien Macdonald’s #SMILEbyJulien for Mothercare


You know what to expect when Julien Macdonald puts on a fashion show (as he did this weekend at a church in Mayfair for London Fashion Week); slinky red carpet gowns (he dresses Beyonce, Taylor Swift and all the Kardashians after all) a stellar line-up on the front row (Yasmin Le Bon, Rochelle Humes, and Millie Mackintosh) and children – wait, what?

Yep, following the parade of 6ft-tall models wearing sparkly cobweb cut-out dresses featuring fringing, sequins, beading and feathers, came two mini-models for the catwalk’s grand finale.

Because, guess what? Julien Macdonald, international fashion designer, has created a special collection for Mothercare’s youngest customers, aged 0-2, called ‘Smile by Julien Macdonald’.

Gurgle hung out backstage at the show and met the little stars that stole the show – Toby and Sadie.

Mum of mini-model Sadie couldn’t contain her pride, taking to Instagram after the stunning finale with, 'It was such an amazing experience for Sadie.' Toby’s mum posted that she was 'so proud of my little man.'

#SMILEbyJulien will be available in select Mothercare stores and on from 20th April 2016.
