Austin Fashion Week's Stars event was full of Project Runway alums, but it's safe to say that the kids stole the show. Eight designers from the hit series showed off their latest looks for a packed house at Austin Music Hall, one with the help of some tiny (and adorable) models.
Jeffrey Sebelia, season three winner, showcased his La Miniatura line for children, an edgy take on classic styles. The looks ranged from punk to dapper and were worn with the charisma you’d expect from a kid on the runway. Some posed, some were shy, but every model had the crowd smiling.
It was a great start to a night full of inspiration. Click through to see our favorite looks.

Inspiration for this look came from the famed 1970s punk movement in England.
The line consists of a variety of looks from punk T-shirts to hip suits.
La Miniature includes trendy jackets and hoodies. In the case, a chic red trench coat.

Who said kids can't mix prints?
Stripes and other fun fabrics like this gold jacket played a big role in the collection.
Sebelia also peppered in pop culture references to the line.
