At the age of 9, she had already decided what she would do in the future.
She has the desire to be part of the incredible world of fashion as well as clothing manufacturing. The Colorado basic school student was premier time introduced to the craft with the support of her mom Tony in November 2021 and it was the beginning of a wonderful dream.
As Tonya described, one of the profits of homeschooling a child is that she “has time to teach the kids what they have the desire to learn. Thus, as soon as my kids approached me saying, “I want to be a couturier when I grow up,” or “I want to be a cook,” I advise them not to wait until being adults. Let’s learn together currently.”
“I have been sewing for many years but knew almost nothing about tailoring,” she carried on. “So, in case Kaya has the desire to learn how to sew something exceptional, like pants, I would have to invent something in order to teach her that.
The girl squeezed every lesson like a squeegee. After the premier lessons, she never ceased to surprise the Internet with her artistic works. From dresses to suits, falling dresses to divided two pieces, she is able to do it all. When she completes her next work, she uses the hallway of her house as a catwalk in order to showcase designs that even adults will astonish by.
Kaya said she infrequently plans her work ahead of time.
“I just wait for something to be the source of motivation for me, be it a tissue or a certain finish. And then I have footage in my head and I commonly start shaping the tissue until the dress matches the footage in my head.”
Every work Kaya creates has a completely new look.
“One thing that never converts is that I only use very tender as well as cozy tissues,” says the young fashion designer.
Coziness is always a primary goal for Kaya. in her opinion, she is not in traditional girlish outfits.
“I am fond of making clothes because the fancy dresses in the little girls’ section are so stiff as well as uncomfortable,” she explains. – In my outfits, I can be very fashionable but, simultaneously, I can feel comfortable. So, I can go to a tea party and then ride a scooter in the park without having to change my outfit.”
Although Kaya has made dozens of outfits, her current favorite one is the “pink satin dress. I created it from hand-painted tissue. It looks shimmery as well as converts coloration as soon as she turns to open the dress. Kaya and her mother purchase the majority of their necessary things from thrift shops.
The fashionista has the desire to become a skillful fashion designer when she grows up, expecting to run a fortunate business with her closest companion Ariana, with whom she has designed some works. Another of her wishes is to design or cooperate with Zendaya.
Her wishes are not far from being a reality. The mother and daughter have more than 15,000 followers on the Internet, and they all want to know what the girl thinks next.
As mentioned by Kaya, her favorite designers are Vera Wong as well as Gunnar Deteridge. It was their work that motivated her to have a trip into the world of fashion.
“Vera and Ganner were very supportive and encouraging,” – she says.
Vera Wang, one of the most well-known American wedding dress designers, familiar with mixing modern design with traditional elegance, spotted a gifted girl and even provided her with a sewing machine. Vera Wang is attentive to the work of designers of young girls.
According to the latter, only diligent work makes a dream become reality.
Kaya herself is ready to support those who dream of sewing but are afraid that it will not work out.
“My advice to anyone just starting out just does it,” she says. “You will make errors but you can always have the opportunity to correct them.”
So, what does Kaya see for herself in the future?
“I will just keep obtaining new things and making an attempt to try new approaches,” she says. – As for the upcoming, I have plenty of plans. I have the desire to attend college to study design together with my closest companion. We want to work jointly at Starbucks in order to pay for college expenses and, after graduation, open our own couturier in Paris, New York, Seattle, or San Diego.”
