Fashion designer Rebecca Moses shows off her colorful threads to raise funds for the Children's Museum of Richmond. 

Clothes for Kids

Just two weeks after debuting her spring 2000 collection in Milan, fashion designer Rebecca Moses is once again rifling through racks of her brightly colored clothing, doing one last inventory check a few hours before the first American showing of the collection. But this time around, instead of presenting her clothes to international retailers and the fashion press, Moses is mounting this fashion show for kids. "I'll do anything for kids," the internationally known designer says. This includes hopping on a plane from her home in Milan to present her 2000 collection to 175 supporters who paid up to $500 per couple to raise money for the new Children's Museum of Richmond. The show was held Oct. 14 at Coplon's on River Road, the exclusive retailer for the Rebecca Moses collection in the Southeast.

"I think she is the most creative, inspirational, innovative designer we work with in the market," says Hank Greenberg, owner of Coplon's. "Color is so important in fashion today, and nobody quite interprets color for reality like Rebecca."

At the evening fashion show, Richmonders who were just pulling their dark-colored woolens from cedar trunks, were treated to an explosion of Moses' colorful cashmere sweaters, hot little tulle and voile dresses and iridescent bikinis. It was a welcome jolt of fashion energy for a city that, at least for one night, was a glowing dot on the fashion
