We know blogland is full of promising fashion designers. And there are plenty of bloggers who specialize in revealing them. We aren’t going to be shifting the focus of crafterhours for an extended period of time, but for today, we had to introduce you to a fresh-faced new designer with vision.
She’s creative. Thoughtful. Detailed. Deliciously sweet.
She designs with color. Texture. Flair.
She’s not ready for large-scale production just yet, but we’re first in line to let you know when she is.
She’ll be 7 in May. Her mom knew that she loves fashion and fashion design, and found this cool notebook with outlines for filling in with your own designs or copying some of the designs that they’ve included.
Adrianna and I were visiting one evening and Alea showed us her work, and we were impressed. Not only is her work amazing, the idea of the notebook is a great platform for other designers getting started who want to zoom through lots and lots of design brainstorming. We loved it so much we ran back the next day for a shoot.
Some of the pages have pre-printed full color fashions, so that the young designer can try their hand at copying designs.
The notebook that Alea is using is one that’s printed in the EU and was bought at a bookstore there. We’ve looked online, but haven’t seen anything similar that’s available in the states. Anyone know of something like it? Or maybe we have a DIY idea…
