Fashionista Runway Model Party
How to have a modeling and fashion birthday party for girls
Run away with the idea of a runway model party! After all, your little Fashionista
changes clothes more often than you do, and this party idea will help her show off a
sense of style. The girls will enjoy the glamour of makeup and hair design and fashion
design, as well as a chance to run the catwalk, and get behind the camera.
Whether she has ambitions to be a model or a fashion designer, a runway model party
is an opportunity to teach kids that everyone can be beautiful on the inside, and that
anyone can have style. It's also a good way to introduce to the girls the different kinds
of models, including hand models, plus-size models, kids who model and more. As well
as to introduce them to related careers, such as fashion designing, photography, and
editorial. Besides, a runway model party is in vogue with the rise of runway model
television shows, such as Project Runway.
Here's how to host a fashion show birthday party for kids:
- Have the girls strut their stuff on the catwalk. As the girls enter the party, make
them run the catwalk to music and strike a pose. Download the "I'm too Sexy"
by Right Said Fred, right, the '90s novelty song that will have you singing "I'm a
model and you know what I mean, I do my little walk on the catwalk." This
British Pop song is not "too sexy" for your kids party and it's just .99-cents.
Other must have music downloads: "Raspberry Beret" by Prince, and "Fashion"
by David Bowie. Try also "Fashion" by Lady Gaga, "Strike a Pose" by Madonna,
and "Supermodel (you better work)" by RuPaul. Here are more ways to
enhance the catwalk:
- Provide a runway with red carpet.
- Set up a vanity station with makeup.
- Send the girls back stage behind a metallic fringed stage.
- For girls who have already arrived, provide front row seating.
- See more fashionista party supply ideas in the rotating banner below.
- Fashion magazines. Buy a variety of fashion magazines for the girls to peruse.
Find a good selection of foreign fashion magazines written in English, as well as
the popular choices in the United States. At the end of the party, girls can draw
numbers to select their favorite fashion magazines to take home as parting gifts.

Fashion games and activities
Here's how to fashion a party of memories that will last a lifetime:
- Design a wedding dress. Something borrowed from a bridal shower party is the
old design a wedding dress from toilet paper game. Divide the girls in teams
(one model per group, the rest will be designers who wrap their). Provide
bouquets of artificial flowers and a bowl of jewelry. Then have the models run
the catwalk. Record the events on video for viewing at cake time.
- Project Runway: Provide a variety of materials, including duct tape, scissors,
dishwashing gloves, plastic bags, paper bags, and a bowl of jewelry and an
assortment of accessories you find at the thrift shop. Cut up articles of clothing
so the kids can use a pant leg, a sleeve or a bodice,but not the entire garment.
Have a catwalk, award prizes for creativity and enjoy the creations.
- Makeover madness: Pair the girls in twos so that they can make over each other.
Everyone gets a makeover of hair and makeup with the object of creating a
dramatic look. Provide fresh brushes for each child, which can also serve as
favor. Set out glitter makeup, hair accessories, and extras such as boas,
sunglasses, hats. Have the girls run the catwalk and pose for the papa-razzi
(Dad holding a camera). Use the photos in the thank you cards.
- Dress the mannequin. Set girls in two teams and give each girl a comparable bag
of clothes, preferably with lots of layers and accessories. Girls pick a
"mannequin" from the team and you'll provide each mannequin with a leotard.
When she is dressed in the leotard, the race begins! The girls in each team will
make it a relay to dress their mannequin"without the help of the girl in the role
of the mannequin who must remain stiff. This is guaranteed to bring loads of
- Shop till you drop. Invite girls to bring clothes or accessories they like, but just
don't wear any more. Provide monopoly money and have girls set up shop and
barter with one another so that everyone comes home with something new.
Now have the little miss fancy pants model their new wardrobes.

accessories. Here's how to fashion some sweet confections for your little fashionistas:
