You don't often find mothers and daughters starring in a fashion show. But it was apropos at the Tootsies Fashionably Forward fete benefiting Children at Risk

At the event presented by DFW Style Daily's Lisa Petty and Priya Bhola Rahod, it was fitting that mini fashionistas walk the runway, because the beneficiary is focused on improving the lives of children via research, public policy analysis, advocacy and education.

Featured moms Kelly Abernathy, Pam Aldred, Amy Bowers, Christy Brown, Pat Forshee, Lynn Johnson, Pamela King, Julianna Leblanc, Debbie Tull and Cathy Vieth wore contemporary attire by Alice + Olivia and accessorized with Leighelena Jewelry. 

The kids — Ainsley Abernathy, Finley Abernathy, Sarah Aldred, Bryn Bowers, Ellis Bowers, Tess Bowers, Emerson Brown, Bella Forshee, Landry Johnson, Ellie King, Rosemary Leblanc, Melanie Tull and Chanel Lee Vieth — donned designs provided by Kid Biz boutique. 

Before and after the main event, the crowd — including Leighelena Jewelry designer Leigh Navarro​, Niven MorganSean Charles, Bethanny Siggins, ​Gary Walden and Scott Cetnar —  indulged in light bites and cocktails and captured the spirit of the night in a photo booth.
