On 19 March, 2023, Global Kids Fashion Show Edition One was successfully presented in the elegant and historic site of Hotel Shangri-La in Paris. Kids from nine countries gathered for this valuable event to celebrate their passion for fashion art.
« Global Kids Fashion Show » is a cultural IP project for young people organized by the Association of Arts and Fashion of Paris and the Sino-European Association of Educational & Cultural Exchange, with special support from the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode (FHCM, host organisation of Paris Fashion Week).
Global Kids Fashion Show aims to promote the development and exchange of international youth culture and fashion art. GKFS combines fashion-art education, stage performance, international culture and art exchange, and global welfare activities. This event is held once a year in the fashion center, Paris. The event’s purpose is to gather young talents from all over the world to compete in fashion and art. A season of a youth cultural variety reality show will be held annually in leading cultural cities around the world as an additional event.
The project was fully launched in March 2023 and keeps engaging young talents from four continents: Europe, America, Australia and Asia. The core of the first event was a fashion modeling competition, and this event is in partnership with global charities, including Make-A-Wish France and UNICEF Canada, in order to empower children to realize their fashion dreams and assist sick and underprivileged children to attain amazing achievements.
