Designers Take Cues From Teen Style Bloggers

Rodarte's designers, sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, say they have been corresponding with the 13-year-old in recent months after they discovered her blog where she writes about her love of fashion and posts photos of herself. The Mulleavys invited her, with her father, to sit, front row, at their show. "Tavi makes you think about things differently, makes you see things differently," says Kate, a designer whose line mixes classic styles with edgy accents.
