THE WORLD OF TAVI, THE 13-YEAR-OLD FASHION BLOGGER!

Everyone who's into fashion and knows a bit what's happening in the world of fashion bloggers, have heard the name Tavi. A 13-year-old talking fashion? There's bound to be a discussion!
There's an interesting discussion happening over at The Cut about the Tavi phenomenon and whether or not editors take her seriously. For the most part, they don't. But wouldn't it be weird if we expected any grown woman to take cues from a 13-year-old? I think so!
ELLE's Anne Slowey <3 compares her fascination with the tiny blogger to the public's old obsession with JT Leroy and points out the difference between Tavi's writing and speaking style in the Rodarte for Target video.

"You look at her video, and the writing doesn't sync up with the way she talks about fashion. When I watched that video it smacked of this ethereal vagueness -- this vacant like quality where it was like everyone was on Vicodin. Like everyone was uncomfortably dumb except for me.
I'm not trying to take anything away from her -- her love of fashion, her love of style. She's either a tween savant or she's got a Tavi team.
What am I getting out of a 13-year-old's opinion about fashion? How does that help me distill the collections? What am I supposed to be buying? That's what an editor's job at a magazine is."

OH SNAP!

You know, Tavi looks like a great girl.
But she is just too young to be that involved in the fashionindustry.
Fashion and personal style needs development and as an 13 year old you are just too young to be developt in your style and view for fashion.
So I understand why Anna left that comment.

Jeg digger Tavi!!

Posh sa...

She is just lucky, I personally don't like her style! If she was a few years older, nobody would notice her..

hoho sa...

To Nerdic, Fashion is not the fashion industry. People paint, dance and sing to express them selfs. This is also the case with "style".
