Cecilia Cassini took on the fashion world at the tender age of 10 years old. Now 14, she has designed for A-listers like Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Heidi Klum.
The Latina teen has been called “the Mozart of fashion” and began designing when she was just four years old, according to a report by Voxxi.com.
Cassini’s mother recalled how Cecilia cut down and pinned a Betsey Johnson dress – which her grandmother had given to her older sister – to her own size. The brazen designer explained simply that she could do an even better job with the proper equipment.
“I then asked for a sewing machine when I was 6 years old and have been designing ever since.”
Cassini’s style is anything but ordinary. What other girls wear to a party, she wears on a normal day, she explained.
“I don’t want to be like everybody else. I want to be me and let my personality come out.”
