How Tavi Savvy Are You?
Almost everyone knows about this pint-sized fashion blogger, but how exactly did Tavi Gevinson go from a blogger to mingling with designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Yohji Yamamoto? Apparently her site was originally thought to be a fake created by fashion insiders due to her lengthy analysis of trends and designs. Seven months after Gevinson launched her blog the Muleavy sisters of Rodarte contacted her; and she has since played a muse-like role for the brand. Gevinson can be spotted at fashion events around the globe and was basically a celebrity at NYFW, where she’s typically seated front row. The underage lady had her father chaperon her around the big city as she ventured from show to show.
Tavi recently wrote about her NYFW experience for The POP where she said, “For one week I was in a utopia full of people who can recognize that my jacket is Luella and appreciate that I stuck an upside-down doll in its chest pocket.” Asked earlier whether her classmates read her blog, she said no. Asked whether they understood her style, she admitted: “A lot of them don’t get it, but some do.”
We’ll be keeping our eyes on this teen fashion phenomenon as she continues to grow. It’ll be interesting to see if her perspective changes as she ages and experiences new things in life. For now she has an innocent and wise take that’s got the whole industry fixated on her blog, Style Rookie.
