Meet Nevaeh Woods, a 9-year-old aspiring fashion designer who makes clothes for her Barbie dolls out of everyday items and they’re quite spectacular! After her mother posted pictures of the clothes online, the designs caught the eye of the Barbie Mattel team.
According to Click On Detroit, She started making the doll clothes out of regular household items like old socks and ribbons. Never said “when she grows up, she wants to be a fashion designer”. The clothes were so good that her mother, Sha’kvia Woods, started posting the designs online. “I just took pictures of them, so I was really amazed. I shared it to Facebook and … when I made it public it just went viral.”
Neveah said the co-sign from Barbie was really a boost of confidence for her. “It made me feel special because I’m achieving my goal to be a fashion designer and that’s what I really want to do. So I can be famous and make stuff and encourage people to follow their dreams,” she said.
Her mother plans to be as supportive as possible every step of the way.
“My hopes for Neveah would be to go as far as possible with her dream. It’s not often that kids find their calling at a young age. I’ve tried my best to continue to encourage her and nurture her gift,” Woods told Because Of Them We Can.
