Meet Logan Watkins, a seven-year-old local designer who is set to showcase her collection on Saturday, December 3, at the Island Child Style runway show. Logan possesses an unexplainable sixth fashion sense and finesses her designs through sheer creative insight and an innate pizazz. She is quite the artist and is known for her crafty free-hand drawings, paintings and playing dress-up. The young designer has an eye for all that shimmers and a love for unicorns, which is clearly illustrated in her designs.
To the surprise of her parents, Logan completely understands what is required of her and has displayed her love and commitment to the project. Her mother recalled a vivid memory of when she got up around 4:00 am to complete her sketches as she was against a deadline. The child prodigy has boldly articulated her interests and has no trouble explaining her style and her work.
"I love art because of the colours and I like fashion because I like stylish things. I like one-shoulder clothes and I also like making my own dresses. When I design I feel my imagination telling me what the dress can be like. The story in my designs is about all my unicorns travelling around and finding the right things for my dresses and the bright colours," explained Logan.
In Logan's vibrant fashion world she lives life in bright colours that glitter, sparkle and shine. As a true 'girly' girl it is no surprise that pink is at the top of her list as one of her favourite colours that you are sure to see in one of her animated designs.
"I like pink, I like purple, I like yellow frills and I like a little bit of orange, green, teal and white," she said.
Logan's collection for the show is called Logan Unicorn, or LU for short.
"My collection has a lot of bright colours and I like to call it LU because it's just a shorter name. I like bright colours and unicorns so I think I make them align together. I like my finale dress that I designed and I also have this little book I made with all my designs and it tells me how I want it to be made," expressed the youngster.
The budding designer is excited about her first show for which she hopes her designs will be well-received. In the past, she would accompany her parents to the shows and watch from the sidelines. But this time around she gets to participate!
"I feel great! It's my first time doing a fashion show and I hope to learn how fun it is to do it and how it feels to be a part of the show," she concluded.
