Fashion is not just for grownups. Vibrant attires and stellar performances by children enthralled the audience on Sunday at the Delhi edition of the India Kids Fashion Week (IKFW) 2015.
The two-day event, which started on Saturday at The Grand hotel here, saw children sharing the ramp with confidence and style with the blue blood of the fashion fraternity.
While the first day saw designers and fashion icons like Karisma Kapoor and Noyonika Chatterjee walking the ramp as show-stoppers, the second day saw brands like Little Royals, My Lil' Berry, Nauti Nati, Daughters Dream World, Jabong along with designers Elisha Wadhwani and Ritu Beri unveiling their collections.
The show started with Biba's children's label Biba Girls new 'Magical Summer Collection', where Noyonika Chatterjee walked the ramp as the showstopper.

To conclude the first day, Karisma donned a dazzling white dress, and a little girl wearing the same attire accompanied her.
"Being a mom is better than any award that I may have won in my life... All these little children were professionals, the way they walked, they enhanced the clothes. The Kids Fashion Week is a great concept," Karisma told reporters.
