We read “She’s a Fasionista” from TimeForKids.com.
For her sixth birthday, CECILIA CASSINI, now 11, asked for a sewing machine. Since then, her passion for fashion has blossomed into a career as a designer. Her creations are sold online and in two stores in California. “I started making clothes for my sister and her friends, and word got around,” she told TFK.
Cecilia’s next big plan is to start manufacturing her designs. Her dream is to have her clothes sold in stores around the world. For now, she is busy making 25 to 30 dresses each week.
The young designer has a message for her peers: “Don’t wait until you’re an adult. You don’t have to!”
