Spring/Summer 2011 Vogue Bambini/Children's Club Fashion Show: Ready for a 'Caribbean Summer'
A tropical "Caribbean Summer" warmed the runway at the recent Spring/Summer 2011 Vogue Bambini/Children's Club Fashion Show (October 3, 2010). Well-behaved young models - some loving the limelight, a couple bug-eyed with fear - strolled the makeshift beachfront in outfits that ranged from funky playwear to dreamy special occasion dresses. In keeping with the show's theme, the looks reflected carefree days at the beach, with a few with touches of glamour.
