Vivian Dushay, The Boyrepeller
Why She’s Worthy: This 11-year old New Yorker was smart enough to seize a branding opportunity right in front of her to become the mini-me protogé of Man Repeller Leandra Medine. As she puts it on her blog: “I’m boy repeller, fashion child of Manrepeller. I get all my inspiration truly from the MANREPELLER. While she repels men I repel boys. When I come into class all the boys run away screaming. But thats the way I like it.” That just brings some really fun playground imagery to mind, doesn’t it? By the way, fashion also runs in her gene-pool: Boyrepeller’s mom is a stylist and first cousin Max is buzzy designer Rosie Assoulin’s business partner.
Sample Musings: “This is my idea of a party on a neck. When I woke up in the morning there was a tangled tango in my fiesta. So why have one necklace when you can have a whole neck fiesta.”
Style leanings: Clogs, glasses, fringe, plus dolphin and tangerine motifs.
