Bella Thorne has attended her first New York Fashion Week. The 15-year-old Shake It Up star went with her 20-year-old sister Dani, mom Tamara and their dog Kingston.
Bella tweeted a photo of herself with designer Diane von Furstenberg on Sunday (September 8) and wrote: “With the legend herself @DVF”
Later that day she flew back to L.A.
In another snapshot she told fans, “Leaving fashion week:( #nyfw had the best time with my sister:) @dani_thorne”
At one of the shows Thorne told The Daily News, “I want to be a designer, so I came here. It’s like homework.”
Together with sister Dani – she has spent the past months designing a line of everyday clothes and accessories for what she calls “the most awkward age ever” — girls 14 to 17.
“I want to capture that super-awkward age that I’m going through, that every girl winds up having a problem with. You’re not a little girl anymore, you’re not wanting to wear these little ‘Annie’ and poufy outfits, but you’re not a woman. So you want height, but you’re not going to want like, a stiletto. You want to show a little skin, so I’ll put on a high-waisted skirt with a ripped sweater over it or something.”
She also tells the newspaper she’s doing her own thing explaining, “If I stick my tongue out in a picture and somebody’s like, ‘Oh, are you doing it because Miley Cyrus did it?’ I’m like, ‘No, I did it because I want to'”.
Asked about the celebrities at the shows – Bella showed interest in only one.
“The guy from ‘Teen Wolf’ was sitting there, and I acted like I was chill,” she admits. “But really I was like, ‘So cool, so cool, so cool.’ ”
