We caught up with the “youngest fashion designer in the world” last year and couldn’t help being incredibly impressed at the talent of this self-taught entrepreneur. Debuting her first creation at the ripe age of 11, Cecilia quickly became a sensation in California, having designed various pieces for celebrities and young actors. Continuing on the path of design, this mini-fashion queen recently partnered with Madame Alexander to create a very special one-of-a-kind outfit for one of their Favorite Friends 18” play dolls, aptly named “Fashionista”.
Fashionista by Cecilia Cassini has blue eyes and long, straight, dark brunette hair with bangs. The couture doll is fashionably dressed in a hot pink taffeta dress that has black tulle and gold shimmer detail on the bodice, and a black, patent leather jacket. Accessories such as a pair of black and white dotted tights, black calf-high pull on boots, and a large, hot pink headband add even more fashion-forward flair to this doll who comes with a plush white cat.
Although it has yet to be released, you can pre-order “Fashionista” on http://www.madamealexander.com for October 2011 delivery
