FLORISSANT, Colo. (KRDO) — She’s only nine years old, but a young fashionista from Florissant is already making millions from her clothing design posts on TikTok.
“I wanted to be a fashion designer since I was four and I’ve been sewing on and off since I was five,” Aragon said.
Kaia Aragon says she makes an average of one dress a day and has no plans to stop. She transformed a hallway in her home into a runway, designing her dresses from the comfort of her bedroom.
“I basically just start pinning my model and rolling around with whatever comes to mind,” Aragon explained.
Over the past two weeks, his designs have taken off on TikTok.
“It’s interesting how his mind worked,” said Tonya Aragon, his 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 fashion designer Vera Wang noticed.
“I’m happy because people all over the world see my creations,” said Aragon.
However, the young designer said she has no plans to attend Fashion Week anytime soon.
“I don’t know what I’m going to do next, but whenever I feel like it, I just start draping myself over my mannequin,” Aragon said.
