Summit for Kids: Back-to-School Fashion



Kids these days don’t need labels to define their style.  That is why this past weekend during the Summit for Kids event in Akron, Goodwill helped create a fashion show sharing back-to-school kid chosen styles! Each of these kids from pre-K to 9th grade chose their own outfits at an average cost of $7, and in some cases that includes accessories too!


Three & Under Group



Aren’t they adorable! All four chose a dress to match their personality.  Takarra took a casual approach in her white Old Navy dress. Avery liked a blue and red plaid dress.




Meredith looks like a princess in her beautiful butterfly dress.





And Kira, the spunkiest of the bunch, liked this ruffled black skirt, tank and jean jacket.


Pre-School Group




These kids are all about comfort for their days filled with learning and play.  Damone chose this comfy t-shirt and jeans.




Kaleya sparkles in this ruffled grey dress.


Look who is off to Kindergarten – Ta’ Jha and Kelly-Ann.  You can see that they two have already developed a sassy sense of style.
