Couture Fashion By a 10-Year-Old??
check out this video! I guess she's making it big in the industry already!!!
She cracked me up when she said she's "always" been inspired by Chanel. Always... as in, for the past 8 years? ;)
wow. thats crazy.
I think her clothes r okay.
I wish my parents would buy me chanel.
...or teach me to sew. lol
That's insane (in a good way).
But she's already wearing make-up and styling her hair?! At TEN?! Jeez... she needs to act her age. It's amazing what she's doing, but really...
Dang...when I was ten, I was still making mud pies. But then again, I was pretty sheltered and lived half in the woods. lol I'm soooo jealous.
Haha, that's quite cute. I remember making bookmarks out of fabric at that age, that was probably as far as it goes! Lol. That has certainly set her up for a great career though!
That is so amazing! 10 years old.. I feel a little.. less crafty after seeing her!
but we have to remember that in order to design, she needed training. Her parents helped her along, she has talent. Her mom is the one promoting her, although the fashion industry is hard on women, I think its great for her that she has this great talent, but for her parents to exploit her, thats just not right. Let her be a kid.
Very talented young girl. Just hope she has a hard shell. She's cute because of her age but may come up against a tough crowd when she grows up. As for her clientelle I'm thinking tears, tantrums and tieras!!! Hope her parents are making sure she has a chance just to be a kid too. Btw.....I got my first sewing machine when I was 7 and still have it in working order. I still rode my bicycle, messed about in mud and had picnics with friends
yeah, her parents are really promoting her.
I suppose all that really matters is that she is, and remains, happy. Good luck to her.
Wow I'm 19 and I'm barely trying to learn how to sew.
Gosh that is immense!! Like you all said, lets hope she is still being allowed to have a childhood. She's cute now, but when she's grown she'll be just another face in the coture crowd so it'll be even tougher for her later on in life.
I'm with you Codex - I'm 21 and I can barely sew, trying to learn. I wish my mum would teach me how to sew
I'm sure she's talented, full of confidence and obviously her parents have the time and resources to promote her....but there's something i find a little disturbing about these precocious young kids wearing make up and grown-up clothes with the pushy parents :S...and in many cases these " child prodigies" seem to come to grief when they reach late teens/early twenties, but let's hope she has a long and sucessful career ahead of her.
I could knit and sew from an early age, about 5 or 6, and I could make fairly easy things like skirts on the sewing machine by the time I was 11 or 12....but that was probably through necessity, living in a remote area, and not much else to do! I also had a pen pal in London, and we used to send each other designs of dresses etc. we had come up with ourselves.
I have tried to teach my daughter how to sew, but she's not really been interested I wish she was, because even if you don't make many clothes, I think it's a useful and necessary skill for life.
it is, sewing is a great skill to have. even hand sewing
Sewing is a great skill to have, you make not make clothing, but at least when your favourite something is torn you have the knowledge to fix it, rather than just throwing it away and buying a new one!! It also gives you the opportunity to stand out a little more by altering clothing... just love the idea of creating something I care about - clothing - with my bare hands, rather than buying them all the time. I go shopping and think, that could be made so easily I wish I knew how.
I'm with you Nora, some child prodigies seem a bit pretensious (excuse the spelling error) particularly if she's wearing make up and dressing more like an adult than a kid... it's just not on, but it's not her fault, bless her, she probably doesn't know any better!!!
