In the Process

Riga Fashion Week

2017 Edition

Paade Mode SS17 Sun Daze


So much to do in the process. Hair, make up, dresses and accessories, entertainment and laughs, snacks, missing shoes and missing Mommies (all sorted out).

Such a rush for the little models, especially when they do their round on the catwalk! Sparkly eyes! Paade is so grateful for their patience and awesomeness.

Here is a sneak peek backstage.

Post Scriptum Riga Fashion Week



While one could talk about business, fashion, goals and feedback, this time around we want to talk about our fabulous kids and their 29 gold medals, 29 wins! Those wins that trump individual business projects, ambitions, perfect presentation etc. The big ones that give our children new experiences and help them grow to be successful and happy.

Some kids want to run as fast as they can, or sing, dance and perform, we had the chance to meet those who wanted to step on to the catwalk.


Paade Mode had the unique chance to share the stories of 29 children where one gained that ‘best friend forever’ would go out on the catwalk only while holding hands, another girl was happy to wear a pair of trousers for the first time in her life. One had the courage to say “no” just before the walk and another to be brave and go despite being a bit anxious. Dreams to be a model for a day got fulfilled. And a chance to be the first got given away to go together with a fellow friend. There was delight over wearing the twirliest and puffiest dress and pride over doing something without the supporting shoulder of a parent by their side. Those are stories worth telling.




Everyone had their own tale to tell, but we are happy to have done it all together!

It is a a wonderful feeling seeing the little BIG personalities receiving their own “grand medal”. Best wishes to Anna, Sophie, Madara, Tina, Kate, Charlotte,  daighter Emily and Emily, Evelina, Eliza, Paula 1 and Paula 2, Nicole, Ketrina, Kate Karlina, Agneta, Elizabeth, Laura, Alice, Jennifer, Helen, Maya, Andrey, Daniel, Raimond, Rian, Robert, Mikelis and Gustav!
