Dolce & Gabbana and Margherita Missoni Continue the Fashion Week Baby-Mania

by Mickey Boardman
Small children were the must-have front row accessory of fashion week and the baby mania continues at Milan Fashion Week. Dolce & Gabbanna's show on Sunday featured a very pregnant Bianca Balti as well other models toting their little nippers down the catwalk and others lounging languidly on the stage with their offspring. Meanwhile, the baby-loving fashion train is making its next stop this Friday in Paris when Margherita Missoni launches her new line of children's wear. The granddaughter of the founders of the Italian knitwear company is pregnant with her second child. The line will be called Magherita and will have a daisy as its logo ("Margherita" means daisy in Italian) and will be available at Nordstrom or on e-retailer yoox.com. Regardless, the debate continues over whether the runway and front row are appropriate places for little tykes: Anna Wintour is allegedly requesting designers not allow babies in the front row.
