One of the brands I have had the great fun of working with for the years is teen fashion designer Ariel Swedroe of Swedroe by Ariel. I first met Ariel when she was barely three years old and a child model. Today at age fourteen she has a fashion brand that incorporates her grandfather Robert Swedroe’s collage artwork, which is photographed and printed onto silk, charmeuse, and lycra, for Ariel’s designs which range from beachwear, to evening gowns, silk scarves to upscale casual fashion.
While other teenagers are casting about trying to figure out what interests them and what they might want to study in college, Ariel forges ahead with her creating her designs and building her brand, speaking at women in business forums, volunteering in teaching and mentoring initiatives both in the US and abroad, all while attending secondary school. Such a tall order but nothing Ariel isn’t capable of accomplishing.
