Diane von Furstenberg launched her collection for GapKids and BabyGap on Saturday.
The Belgium- born designer - who is best known for her iconic wrap dress - saw the Gap store in The Grove in Los Angeles decked out with a miniature petting zoo and a railway for the collection, which she said she enjoyed the "optimism" of.

Kate Moss is teaming up with her nine-year-old daughter to create a girls' clothing range. The supermodel and little Lila Grace are working with British high street store Debenhams on a range of "funky tweenage" designs, due for release in summer 2012.
"Lila has always loved trying on Kate's clothes and make-up, and is already really into fashion. It was mainly all her idea and Kate obviously agreed to help out as much as possible, using her contacts to land the duo a deal. Lila is adamant the range will be very traditional and English rose-esque in feel. Lila doesn't want to produce chavvy clothes. The collaboration was actually inspired by Kate's mates, Jemima French and Sadie Frost's new FrostFrench Iris and Edie capsule range of sleepwear after their daughters got involved. Kate and Lila Grace will get cracking on designs over the festive period, mulling over ideas at Kate's Cotswolds' pad," a source said.
Kate recently revealed Lila is quite "prudish" and will often tell her mother off when she doesn't take off her make-up: "I always take my make-up off, because otherwise my daughter will come in and say, 'Mummy, tut-tut'. She doesn't like it. She likes the fresh-faced, natural mummy, when I've got my hair in a bun and no make-up on. Lila is quite prudish - she'll only wear a little bit of lip gloss or something. But she is into nail art. I think Lila is beautiful - she's so innocent and has that fresh face. She's gorgeous, but obviously she is my daughter."
Gwen Stefani is teaming up with Target to create an affordable range of clothes for babies, children and young teenagers. The No Doubt singer - who already has her own fashion range L.A.M.B. - will work on the collection, entitled Harajuku Mini, with the budget store, which will be a spin-off of her successful Harajuku Lovers young contemporary apparel and accessories collection and Harajuku Lovers fragrance.
"Harajuku Mini is a dream come true. I've always wanted to do a cool children's fashion line inspired by the supercute and playful kid's clothing you find in Japan. The whole idea is about being creative, expressing your own individuality and having fun getting dressed. Target has given me the creative freedom to design kid's clothing that is different than most anything you usually see out there with great quality, attention to detail and most of all, available at amazing prices."
Katie Holmes says her four-year-old daughter Suri Cruise has a "great eye" for fashion.
The actress - whose husband Tom Cruise has previously revealed the stylish tot gives him fashion advice - says Suri knows what looks good and often takes fashion advice from the youngster.
"She'll really tell me what she thinks. Like today I'm wearing brown suede pants, and she said, 'I don't like your pants.' But then she'll say, 'You've got to wear these shoes.' Or 'That's so pretty, Mom. Wear that.' She's got a great eye."
Along with giving her famous parents fashion advice, the little girl also has very definite ideas about her own style and is vocal about where she loves to shop. "The other day we came out of a store, and she said, 'I want to go there,' pointing at another store quite a distance away. In that store was the dress that she wanted. I said, 'Wow, Suri. You're something. You picked that out from a football field away,'" she told ELLE magazine.
Katie and Tom both take a relaxed approach to dressing Suri and let her choose her own outfits because of her obvious interest in fashion.
Willow Smith cites Billy Idol as her fashion icon.
The "Whip My Hair" hitmaker has developed a keen interest in fashion despite being only 10 years old and admitted the 1980s "White Wedding" singer's look is the one she loves to imitate.
"I love Billy Idol with the leather and all the studs and black," Willow said when asked who influences her style.
Despite her young age, Willow has already sat in the front row at Milan Fashion Week earlier this year and revealed while she doesn't know a lot about the industry, she can appreciate the designer labels:
"Milan Fashion Week was fun because I saw how the designers are all so different. Say Dolce and Gabbana, most of their designs were delicate and more fitted but compared to someone else like Ferragamo their stuff was different. Ha I don't know a lot about fashion."
Jennifer Lopez is set to star in a new Gucci campaign alongside her two-year-old twins. The singer-and-actress and little Max and Emme will be the faces of the Italian fashion house's new children's fashion line, with the campaign being shot in July by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
According to WWD, the images feature a sun-kissed Jennifer and her children wearing Gucci clothes and accessories, including sunglasses, while playing on the beach. As part of the campaign, Gucci will make charitable donations to UNICEF and the Maribel Foundation, a charity founded by Jennifer and her sister, Lynda. Jennifer had previously said she is keen to keep her family life private as much as possible because she knows too much attention could have a bad effect.
"We're not ones to parade the kids around. Marc is really adamant about that. He's really protective. We don't want them getting used to that life. It's a weird existence. I used to be of the attitude, many years ago, that I would just live my life and not care. But at the same time, you shouldn't just throw caution to the wind, because there are consequences to that lifestyle."

Move over, Gap Kids—Gucci is set to launch a children’s wear line.
The Italian fashion house’s creative director, Frida Giannini, wants to branch out into kids clothes with a range available starting in June. The first line will be unveiled in Italy and then hit around 40 stores worldwide. Frida is currently in Singapore - where she announced her future plans - and was honored to have an orchid named after her, the Paravanda Frida.
“It was very touching and I loved the thought that the orchid will still be there a few hundred years from now. I have never experienced such an honor before.”
The orchid, a white flower with fuchsia tips, was also the inspiration for 88 limited edition Boston bags which Frida exclusively designed for Singapore to benefit children’s charity Mainly I Love Kids (MILK). The white-and-pink Paravanda Frida bags sold out within a month of their launch in February, which left Frida stunned. Speaking at the opening of the revamped Gucci flagship at the Paragon mall on Orchard Road, Frida told WWD, “I always feel surprised in a very positive way at how customers really relate to the brand.”
