FLORISSANT, Colo. (KRDO) – She’s only nine, but a young Florissant fashionista is already reaching millions through her clothing design posts on TikTok.
“I’ve wanted to be a stylist since I was four and have been sewing and sewing since I was five,” said Aragon.
Kaia Aragon says she is averaging one dress a day and has no plans to stop. She transformed a home corridor into her catwalk, designing her clothes from the comfort of her bedroom.
“I basically start staring at my mannequin and just go around with whatever comes to mind,” Aragon explained.
In the past couple of weeks, his designs have taken off on TikTok.
“It’s interesting to see how her mind worked,” said Tonya Aragon, her mother. “I would just hand her a piece of fabric and within an hour she would have this beautifully designed piece because I thought it was unique, I thought it was worth sharing.”
Her TikTok fans call her a young fashion prodigy, even designer Vera Wang has noticed.
“I’m happy because people all over the world see my projects,” said Aragon.
However, the young designer said she has no plans to leave for fashion week anytime soon.
“I don’t know what I’ll do next, but whenever I feel like doing it, I start draping my mannequin,” Aragon said.
