Attn: fashion oriented Houzzers - niece on the runway in Milan

last modified: last month

Many of you over here have really great fashion sense/style. Seemed like a perfect place to brag a bit about my niece (we have a very special bond - she’s been my mini me!) - she walked in a few shows for fashion week. This was her first time in Milan.

Had to post one photo of her! So proud - I took her to her first audition when she was around 10. I handle reviewing all of her contracts (I’m an attorney).

She’s juggling college and fashion shoots - she is AMAZING!

    Love the outfit! She sounds like a smart girl and a great reflection on her Auntie.

    How exciting! Congratulations! And I can't help but think how fortunate she is that you have her back legally, too. What a world.

    She's amazing - and adorable. By now with that many years experience, I'm sure she knows this is hard work. Better the young attempt that than those of us more advanced in years 😊 I'm old enough to remember having worn a dress that length - but I certainly never had those legs!

    We have similar builds - however, I stopped at 5’7” - she’s just over 6’ tall (I think 6’1”)! She told me that when she was little, she wanted to be an attorney like me - but I think that was mostly because she liked the clothes that I wore to work (especially when I wore long high heeled boots with my shorter skirts 😂) - her mom was the nurse manager for a PICU back then = wore scrubs (now she’s on the business side since obtaining her MBA - dresses a little differently than back then - although more casual than I did).

    @carolb_w_fl_coastal_9b - I‘ll have to make a list! She had a ”go-see” for Prada - but didn’t book that one (she was disappointed).

    I think I’m actually going to travel with her in the fall to Paris - I’ve never been to Paris!

    Thanks for sharing that, especially since many models get a bad rap. Your niece sounds like a smart, focused young woman. And the outfit is stunning.

    Fun! My friend's son was spotted at the age of 19 at a concert and has been successfully modeling for the past five years or so. He's starting to age out!

    Following him has exposed me to some very unusual fashion - I would have never clicked through a Rick Owens show if it wasn't for him.
