There is something kind of awesome about this. Tavi, a clever fashion-smart pre-teen with a clever, fashion-smart blog, arrived on the scene a few years back, and was soon embraced by the fashion industry in a completely unprecedented manner. A 12-year-old blogger from the burbs of Chicago invited to a Dior show? And to interview Galliano himself after? Yep. And that’s just one example. Soon Tavi was everywhere, and what was once a cool little story became yet another tired tale of everyone in fashion clamoring for the exact same thing at the exact same time. Boring, snoozy, tired, blah, blah, blah.
Now Tavi, after a couple short years of being courted by the biz, is coming to the same realizations, and it just feels… I don’t know… refreshing. Am I right here?
