1st Strut Fashionable Moms Show

What do you do if you feel under-represented in the world of fashion?

If you're The Moms, Audrey McClelland and Vera Sweeney of Getting Gorgeous, and Holly Pavlika of MOMentum/Big Fuel, you join forces with Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Director of Fashion at Lincoln Center, to produce and star in your own fashion runway show during New York Fashion Week.

The day after the lights went out under the tents, 19 social media moms sashayed in the first ever Strut: The Fashionable Show, showcasing accessible spring designs available in stores now. Supermodel Iman hosted, 8-year old music prodigy DJ Fulano directed the music, and stylist June Ambrose (whose amazing work I saw at Catherine Malandrino last season) led the show at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center:

I was fortunate to be among the Clorox-sponsored Twitter-azzi, live-Tweeting the action. Witnessing the amazing personalities of each mom beaming down the runway was truly inspiring. There are so many stylish and affordable clothing options for women of all shapes and sizes these days, all it takes is a little inspiration and effort. Thanks to the Strut Moms for demonstrating both.

My photos only represent a fraction of the looks showcased. In case you missed it, you can watch the entire presentation here.
