Confession: we harbored fantasies of wearing matching Laura Ashley dresses and doing those charity mother-daughter fashion shows when we were wee little fashionistas. It all came rushing back when we learned of Comptoir des Cotonniers October 4 open casting call for moms and daughters to become the new, inter-generational face of the brand.
Slightly (OK, massively) more chic than hers and hers floral jumpers, the lovely Comptoir des Cotonniers has based its design philosophy on the versatility of their collections among chic matriarchs and their darling daughters alike. And on October 4, from 3-7pm, the Spring Street boutique invites stylish pairs to audition for the chance to not only represent the brand in the spring advertising campaign, meaning travel to an as-yet-unnamed far-flung shoot location, but also travel to Paris to walk in the Spring runway show on November 23.
Our mothers think we could easily win the competition ourselves, but doubt their modeling capabilities, much to our bewilderment. This is boding at its very best, and our twelve-year-old selves would surely have a nosebleed at the news.
Comptoir des Cotonniers is located at 155 Spring Street.
