This 11 Year Old Already Has A Celebrity Following For Her T-Shirts
July 25, 2013
Melissa Aiello might just be the coolest chick ever. She has a successful t-shirt line with a cult celebrity following…and she’s only 11 years old. Your eyes are not playing trick on you, that is the number eleven, which means she was born in 2001. At the ripe young age of SEVEN YEARS OLD, Missy showed promise as a talented illustrator by sketching images of her family members. Fast-forward two years later, Missy is drawing models and fashion industry insiders for her Tees By Missy X brand. From the moment she produced a sketch of Karl Lagerfeld in 15 minutes (I swear, I’m not making this up), everyone knew she was destined for greatness. Tees By Missy X followed shortly after.
Now, Missy’s creations include white t-shirts with sketches of everyone from Amy Winehouse, Anna Wintour and John Galliano to Barack Obama. She’s also expanded her range with illustrated sweatshirts and canvas tote bags. But Missy doesn’t just draw these celebrities and fashion icons, they actually wear her designs too. Wiz Khalifa wore a Bob Marley Tee By Missy X in his Brainstorm music video and Azealia Banks is a fan. According to her website, we should be able to shop her creations very, very soon. Let the countdown begin.
