An eight-year-old fashion designer heads to NYC

A little girls dream comes true sooner than most dreams. Lía Edlin Miller, 8, from East Northport is now a fashion designer, according to the Sun Sentinel. This blows my mind, at eight years old I was playing with Barbie dolls and dreaming about becoming a pop star. In no way did I think I could fulfill it in the year I was dreaming of it. This is a true dream come true. She began to learn how to sew as soon as she decided she wanted to become a designer. “I love to be colorful. I like to use blue and purple and pink. I love deciding what I’m going to make and how I’m going to make it. It makes me feel so good that I did it myself,” Miller tells Sun Sentinel. Her mother then entered in a New Jersey Fashion Week design competition that took place in September at the Crayola Experience in Easton, Pennsylvania. After Lía participated in this competition she wanted more of a challenge. She later jointed designers from all over the world in the Plitzs show. Lia was the youngest designer in the showcase before her was a 12 year old. Lía presented 10 of her outfits “Lía’s Stardust Designs.” They included a jumpsuit, maxi dresses, pants outfits and skirt sets. Her mother explains to the press that she isn’t looking to get a major job right away but to get her talent out there. “Do I think at 8 years old somebody’s going to pick her up? Not necessarily. Is it exposure in that people see her being out there? Yes,” Miller’s mother said. This little girl’s story is so inspirational for every little girl out there with a dream. Even myself at twenty-two years old she is an inspiring everyone that if you make initiative anything can happen. She had a dream and went for it; she knew sitting around to grow up wasn’t going to do anything if she just sat waiting. An eight-year-old is teaching us life lessons, ironic.
