Cecilia Cassini has been watching too much Bravo
I ran into this clip of Cecilia Cassini, who is supposedly the world’s “Youngest Fashion Designer.” I don’t see how anyone could know that, but I’ll play along. After making it through this interview (which was difficult) I can’t decide if she sounds more like Rachel Zoe or Miss South Carolina (“like, such as, and The Iraq”).
I Googled her to look at her clothes. I figured if I like her clothes, I might not hate her so much. And yes, I understand she’s 10. But I can still hate her.
The clothes…. they’re bad. I’m well aware they are way better than anything I could have done at age 10 but then again I wasn’t in Vogue….VOGUE!…and several other huge fashion magazines. If she wasn’t being taken so seriously I’d be happy for her. But people truly believe this girl is some fashion designer prodigy. There’s nothing amazing about the clothing she makes.
One of the cheapest things she sells is a belly shirt for children for $38. Everything else is even more overpriced. A poorly sewn leopard dress for $83. Most fabrics that don’t go together, which is ironic if you watched the whole interview. Cecelia said she quit going to a sewing teacher because the teacher criticized her fabric choices… and….. well……. the teacher was right. Your fabric choices are horrible. AND THIS IS COMING FROM A PERSON THAT WEARS POLYESTER OCCASIONALLY. I know you’re 10. But you have been in Vogue…… if you’re in Vogue you should know how to sew a seam.
Hopefully she’ll be less miserable in a few years once she understand the words coming out of her own mouth, or because those few years will be spent in the fashion industry, she’ll be even more self-absorbed and less likely to form a logical sentence. Odds are the latter.
I’m willing to bet she’ll have her own Bravo TV show and/or be interning for Rachel Zoe in the next year or two.
