Cecilia Cassini

Meet Cecilia Cassini. She is a ten year old designer, about to rock the world of fashion as she has started dressing young Hollywood and set sights on the runways of Paris. Her idol is Coco Chanel.

Cecilia's style is homespun but sassy with simple dresses being constructed from a skirt in one fabric and a bodice in another. She uses a lot of vintage fabrics. The pieces that she constructs are quirky and cute with sequins, rosette or bow details. Exactly what kids would love. Below are some of the garments from her collections:

At age seven, she wrote her first letter at school to Coco Chanel while other kids wrote letters to Santa. Then at age eight, she designed a logo for her line based on the Eiffel Tower. According to the LA Times, her big break came last year at Tough Cookies, a children's shop in Sherman Oaks, Calif, when her mother mentioned to the owner that Cecilia made dresses. That led to a trunk show where Cecilia sold fifty pieces.
