Tween Designer Named Rising Star of Austin Fashion Week
AUSTIN, Texas, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Tween fashion designer Isabella Rose Taylor today announced the upcoming launch of her latest Fall collection of hip tween and teen clothing and accessories. The launch of the new collection comes on the heels of the designer being named a “Rising Star” at this year’s 5th Annual Austin Fashion Awards, where her summer collection received high accolades.
Designing apparel since the age of 9 and creating custom artwork and poetry since her early childhood, 12-year-old Taylor is often referred to as a tween prodigy. Her second collection, due out this Fall, will feature an array of fashion-forward tops, bottoms, dresses, accessories and graphic tees that speak to tweens. Taylor describes her designs as in-line with the latest style trends while at the same time, unique and different.
“My clothes are inspired not only by my art, but by colors, shapes, poetry, travel and the beauty of everything around me,” says Taylor. “I want to create tween couture and that doesn’t just follow tween fashion trends but is also comfortable, glamorous and distinctive,” she adds.
Taylor’s summer fashions were recently showcased on the runway of the 5th Annual Austin Fashion Awards, held on May 11, 2013 at the Austin Music Hall. At the event, the designer was named one of the show’s “RISING STARS,” a title bestowed upon those who, while still early in their career, are considered breakthrough or emerging talent.
“Having the opportunity to share my summer collection at Austin Fashion Week and being named a “RISING STAR” of the show was an incredible honor. As one of my favorite tees states, I’ve put a lot of “blood, sweat and glitter” into my work and to be recognized for that by such a prestigious organization as the Austin Fashion Fund, I am deeply grateful,” Taylor adds.
Taylor’s current and upcoming Fall collection, launching next month, are available on her website www.isabellarosetaylor.com.
