Nikko Gonzalez, son of journalist and media personality Lauren Sánchez, made waves in the fashion industry by walking the runway at the 2024 Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria show in Italy on Wednesday. Sánchez, seated in the front row alongside her fiancé Jeff Bezos, was there to support her son during his moment in the spotlight.

Gonzalez, 23, recently graduated from college and has keen interests in both fashion and technology. His mother shares Nikko with former NFL player Tony Gonzalez and proudly watched as her son took to the runway. Capturing the moment on social media, Sánchez shared an Instagram story, writing, “Wait for proud mom moment,” while showing footage of Nikko striding confidently in a tailored monochrome black ensemble, complete with an embellished long-sleeve shirt.

Gonzalez isn’t new to the high-fashion scene. He made his runway debut for Dolce & Gabbana during their fall 2024 show in Milan back in January.

This latest Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria presentation highlights the Italian luxury brand’s continuing success with their male clientele. The brand has consistently aimed to offer much more than just fashionable attire. “It’s not just a fashion show for cool clothes. It’s a moment, it’s history, it’s a relationship, it’s food, it’s Italian, it’s everything,” Domenico Dolce mentioned in a previous interview. “Couture is more about style of life. Prêt-à-porter is more fashion.”

The presence of kids from high-profile families in the fashion industry isn’t new. Recently, young relatives of celebrities have been taking the fashion world by storm. For instance, Beyoncé’s nephew, Julez Smith, made his runway debut during New York Fashion Week in February. He walked the runway at the Luar fall 2024 show and attended other major shows for Louis Vuitton and Wales Bonner.

With the increasing trend of famous offspring stepping into the spotlight, Nikko Gonzalez’s foray into high fashion is not just a proud moment for his mother, Lauren Sánchez, but also signifies a continuing tradition of celebrity families making their mark on the industry. His presence on the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria runway this week is just one of many steps in what looks to be a promising journey ahead in the world of fashion.
