Cécilia Cassini- The 13 Year Old Designer

After watching America's Next Top Model, I was giddy to see Whitney Port, Guess & Lulu Guinness (how awesome were those bags?) on the selection of designers for go-sees. However, one young designer grabbed my attention: Cécilia Cassini.

At just 13 years of age, she's made it into the make-or-break industry of fashion. After getting a sewing machine as a gift from her grandmother at the age of six, she's been non-stop.

As Laura said, "She proves that if you want something, you can go out there and get it".

“It sounds like she is a prodigy. It’s just not normal to hear of a ten year-old with that kind of passion for fashion design,” says Mary Stephens, Director of Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

She's already dressed Miley Cyrus, Kelly Osbourne and Heidi Klum, to name a few.

On the show, she appears very confident and just as talented as some of the older designers in the business, with her comments such as "Victoria was trying to be as bubbly as Kiara but you could tell that wasn't her personality".

Upon visiting her website, which appears to be under construction, her clothes are available to buy online at affordable prices.

I'll definitely be watching out for her with her title as "the youngest designer in the world".

  3. On the other hand, it can be destructive for the lives of certain people. So it's better to keep yourself modernized with fashion but if it is damaging your academic performance by any mean, you should keep yourself away from that. Maria B Lawn Collection
