A Young Fashionista

New York Fashion Week happens twice a year and encapsulates the very pulse of the fashion world. Originally created in 1943 to showcase once overlooked American designers, it has been a long standing tradition and mecca of the elite fashion industry. And for the last 76 years, it has been inspiring young designers and fashionistas around the globe.

Last week I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Miss Eden, a 16 year old girl from Centerville that has been avidly following styles & trends since middle school with a particular draw to European Designers. She dreams of becoming a designer with her own line one day and entertains the idea of modeling while pursuing her vision. When I asked her how fashion had inspired her she replied

One thing about fashion that’s so inspiring is how original an outfit would be or how different and unique it is and how proudly a designer displays their work of art regardless of what other people think which is hard yet so important.

I could see that Eden truly believed that a garment was a work of art, and that every day is a new canvas to be created. The fact that we did her session at the Dayton Art Institute felt completely fitting, surrounded by the remnants of amazing artists who displayed their works of art, regardless of what other people thought.

Eden, you are bound for greatness and I can not wait to see the beauty that you create in this world.
