Tavi Gevinson Blog: 13 Yr-Old Style Rookie Blogs NY Fashion Week
Tavi Gevinson, a small 13-year-old girl, was invited to attended New York Fashion Week which ended Thursday. The diminutive eighth-grader has quickly blogged her way into the heart of the Fashion industry, recently appearing on the covers of LOVE and POP magazines. Tavi skipped school in Chicago to attend high-profile fashion shows in New York.
Tavi has been writing her blog, Style Rookie, for the last two years. The precocious Tavi has created a cult around her sense of fashion, and says she prefers hand-me-downs and vintage clothing, reports wwd.com.
'Using fashion as self-expression can go beyond wearing a shirt with a slogan, as clothing has the ability to evoke an entire feel, or atmosphere, or emotion, or world.'
Tavi is highly well-versed in the world of fashion and a great fan of Rei Kawakubo, a Japanese fashion designer.
Before taking nonstop notes during Maria Cornejo's show Monday, the Chicagoan said, "Alexander Wang just gets better and better. And Y-3 was terrific."
Her look is some fusion of haute couture and Abigail Breslin from Little Miss Sunshine, who has been called 'tiny, serious, slightly eccentric' in her roles by imdb.com.
Tavi Gevinson`s style is a breath of fresh air - I highly recommend taking a look.
