One To Watch: Mary Lynn Clark

petitePARADE

There's something about Mary- Mary Lynn Clark, that is- the newest addition to our "Ones to Watch" series, in partnership with La Petite Magazine and Lee Clower Photography.

Photography by Lee Clower.

The 10-year-old from New Jersey signed with Zuri Model and Talent last year after her father submitted her photograph. Mary's career highlights include walking in the most recent Ralph Lauren children's fashion show, where she loved meeting Alicia Keys, and hitting the catwalk for designer Mischka Aoki.

Mary has also been photographed for magazine editorials, including La Petite Magazine, and for brands such as Aria Children's clothing and Chaps. Mary describes herself as "creative and athletic." When she's not in front of the camera, she is happy baking cupcakes, swimming and teaching herself gymnastics.

When I model, I feel happy and unstoppable!
— Mary Lynn Clark

Mary Lynn Clark hugs friend Zuzanna Tarnacki.

When asked to name someone who inspires her, Mary's answer was Cake Boss Buddy Valastro- she said she dreams of owning a bakery when she grows up, as well as being a successful model.

Help Kallio Build-A-Workshop!

petitePARADE

They say the clothes make the (wo)man but what happens to those clothes when they are no longer cool or just don’t fit anymore? 

Designer Karina Kallio locally sources high quality fabrics and then cuts each garment by hand. 

Karina Kallio is the designer of Kallio, a consciously minded kidswear brand based in Brooklyn, New York. Working in fashion for 10 years exposed Karina to the amount of waste created as an industry, with roughly 85% of misused textile ending up in landfills.

With Kalio, Karina saw an opportunity to help fashion create a cleaner and better future for the next generation by creating a modern-classic kidswear line made entirely from repurposed men's shirts.   

We give love and attention to the quality of our designs to create modern-classics that kids can be kids in.
— Karina Kallio, Designer

The Kallio Workshop

Kallio has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise money for their Brooklyn-based retail space. The store will be utilized to host a series of workshops where artists and designers will teach sustainable art techniques. It will also be the new home to Kallio and other like-minded brands that will be given the opportunity to "pop-up" shop on a monthly basis.

Sitting far left is little Lily, and like most kids her age she aspires to follow in mommy's footsteps. Carolina Zapf is the founder of CZ and Baby CZ clothing companies and focuses on heirloom quality children's wear in rich, cozy materials such as cashmere, linen & cotton. 

Lily is no stranger to the world of fashion and design, spending endless hours at the studio helping her mother finalize swatches, edit color selections, and run the family business. 

When she's not in school or at the office, Lily J. is cutting-out pieces of children's magazines and piecing together mood boards with some of her favorite trends and color stories.  

When asked about her favorite fall items, Lily J. took it upon herself to present her ideas rather than speak them out loud...

Meet 12 Year old Aileen, born and raised in New Jersey, has an uncanny ability to appear both gentle and fierce, quiet and confident, all at the same time. That full, gorgeous head of hair – and the way she just owns it – blows us away every time. “Fun, ecstatic and energetic,” is how she describes herself.
