Registration for Take 8 is here and going fast! First team of 7 years old is closed already! Read all about it here, and don’t forget to reserve your spot!
So, I haven’t been writing this blog for long, but I can already tell you I love it! Love sharing the behind the scenes…reflecting on the fun events we have….but with that said, who can tell these stories better then the girls themselves???
No worries…I am not giving this platform up so quickly, but we did start another blog that will be dedicated to our little fashionistas and their experiences in their own words! So check it out http://eastcoaststarz.blogspot.com/ Remember to follow it, and let us know if you want to contribute your story and pictures!

This weekend, the amazing girls from team Barcelona B, who won our Pink Runway Challenge, were invited to model for Les Tout Petits. The photo shoot, with the incredible photographer Elizabeth Santiago of LeRed Photography, took place pool side at a picturesque mansion in New Jersey.
The girls were styled by our very own Stacie Fitzgerald, and were dressed by the latest creations by Les Tout Petits. It’s incredible how professional the girls were…they looked like they have been doing this since they were born!
Joining the Barcelona girls, were two special guests…Hailey Huelsman, an East Coast Starz contestant and the winner of Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition Season 2; and Mika Arbietman, another East Coast Starz contestant and the co-founder of One Kid Can Change the World!
The pictures from the photo shoot will be used on Modnique.com, an international website that carries the world’s best brands.
Just got back from Take 7, our weekend event full of fashion, modeling, fun and friendship! What a weekend this has been!!! Every time we organize these events, I keep feeling like I am forgetting something, but at the end I am always amazed by how smoothly and fabulously it all turned out!
Friday night started with a swarm of fashionistas, finishing their in-person registration and running upstairs to the “house of Fitz” to get styled and measured for their big sponsor showcases. It was incredible to see so many of our old friends who have been with us since day one, and so many new friends, making their first steps into the world of fashion and modeling. It was especially heart warming to see so many siblings in the house….older sisters helping their little baby munchkins try out clothes and getting styled by Stacie.
Saturday was dedicated to group and individual pictures with the amazing photographers Olesja Mueller and Alexi Kilmer. Girls posed in front of the cameras and got to show off their sponsored outfits by R.I.P Designs – Fashion with a Twist, Threaded Creations , Teeny Wingkini , Spark Era Designs , Sierra Julian , Purple Pixies , POSH Boutique , Outerstuff , Neon Kisses , Millions of Colors , Love Baby J , L.O.L Kids NYC , Lipstick Girls, Les tout Petits , Kids Dream, Halabaloo , Floatimini, Elissa B, Eden’s Boutique, Ccandy , Bound by the Crown , Beva Boutique , and Be Mini Couture.
At night, girls enjoyed some well deserved fun and games, going on a treasure hunt and finishing the evening at a rocking dance party!
Finally, our weekend ended with the long awaited walk on the pink runway! The girls did so well. It’s really amazing seeing 2 years old walking down the runway, and budding models encouraging their friends as they do their “pose off”!
What a weekend! I definitely need a long nap, and a nice massage!
Pictures and more stories to come….
