Isabella Rose Taylor Conquers New York Fashion Week & Designs For Nordstrom All Before The Age of 15

If there’s one thing that’s not on our side it’s time. The one thing most people can probably agree on is that they wish they’d found their passion sooner and started their career earlier. Imagine how much farther along we would all be if we tapped into our god given talent just a few years earlier. That’s why it’s always to great to see a young person acknowledge their gifts right away and sprint towards the life that celebrates that gift. You find yourself rooting for them the same way I find myself rooting for Isabella Taylor. Isabella is a designer, entrepreneur, collegiate, painter, and all around gifted creative. Did I mention she’s only 14 years old?

You’re probably wide-eyed with a dropped jaw just like I was when I first learned of her age. She’s not even old enough for a driver’s permit and her accomplishments in the realm of fashion have enabled her to grace the pages in publications from Teen Vogue to Forbes. Her clothing line is available in select Nordstrom locations and she’s conquered fashion week. At her age I was riding bikes and playing basketball in my neighborhood. Isabella on the other hand is busy building her empire one brick at a time. Our publication makes it a point to find creative talent and expose that talent to the masses. Isabella more than fits the bill, and lucky for me I was able to gain some insight into the life of a future household name. Welcome to the world of Isabella Rose Taylor.

“I would describe myself as a person driven by creativity. I have had this desire to create for as long as I can remember and am always striving to make things that I am happy with which is a real challenge for me. I try to focus on how my life is enriched by art instead of just what the end result will be. I have learned to fall in love with the process and try my best to create authentically.”

Like most kids, Isabella found the first hint at her skill set at camp, sewing camp to be exact. Up until that point she had been painting for several years before learning how to sew. Creating something from 2D to 3D through fashion changed her perspective, because it was an opportunity to share art in a different way. She also saw it as a way for her to push herself when it came to creating. Her world got just a little bit bigger, and she knew she could do a little bit more.

Shortly after her experience at sewing camp Isabella started making her own clothes. People began asking her where she was getting her clothing from and instinct kicked right in. What came next is what separates the great business minds from the train of thought the rest of the world travels on. Isabella knew that there was opportunity there for her to make sales. Life changed for her right then, she became a businesswoman.

“Everything happened very organically. I think I do have a natural business mind. I had been selling my art for years previously and it felt natural to extend that to the clothing that I was making.  When I sold my art I would take the money and buy more paint and canvasses. This was how I started in fashion – I would sell something and buy more fabric. What I like about fashion is that it can be mass-produced. With art the creative development and production stages are pretty related. With the garment industry it is a little different because the creative side and the production side are more separate. There is a lot more to learn about running a fashion line, and it’s very hard to learn how to be profitable. That’s why my course work at Parsons focuses on the business aspects of marketing and merchandising. Fashion is a very difficult business.”

By now you may be wondering what exactly her clothing brand is. It’s called Isabella Rose Taylor, ready to wear clothing for the young contemporary who likes to mix artful elements into their wardrobe. Isabella provides a unique mixture of her art through textiles into a wearable formats. When it comes to creating, often times we create what it is we want to see exist in the world. Isabella takes this same stance with her clothing. She’s inspired by art, music, and current culture. Her brand didn’t make itself, and it didn’t come overnight. The process was slow, organic, and full of mistakes. That’s what makes legends though, that mindfulness to push through the mistakes. Being aware that greatness is on the other side of it all.

Isabella would go on to claim her greatness becoming the youngest to ever design for Nordstrom. She would build on that by presenting at New York Fashion Week. She’s even received praise from industry greats like Jeff Staple. That’s a lot of accomplishment for someone so young, and it’s easy to get big headed in a day and age where follower counts alone serve as ego boosters. Yet and still, young Isabella is as humble as they come.

“Staying grounded and humble is one of most important things in my life. I really try not to read or listen to what others say about me, whether positive or negative. I concentrate on appreciating what’s in front of me, enjoying the process and creating what I want in my life. I think it’s cool to get noticed because it kind of validates that you are on the right track, but I think it’s way cooler when I see a random person on the street wearing one of my outfits.”

Above it all, Isabella is an artist at heart. The thrill of having a vision and bringing it to fruition gives her the most joy. She sees art in everything that surrounds her, beyond that she’s a storyteller. That aspect of her work comes to life in her runway shows. A true architect of her own brand, she controls everything from music, model selection, styling, to hair and makeup. That’s the natural ability of a visionary. She knows how the experience she’s delivering is supposed to make the people feel. It’s not just about the clothing. It’s about manifesting the vision that it all started with.

To wrap it all up I wanted to know how Isabella felt about being a role model of sorts. There are girls looking up to her whether she sees it yet or not. I wondered if that kind of pressure impacts someone who’s still developing as a person, let alone a businesswoman. Refreshingly, Isabella isn’t seeking to be a role model. She’s just doing what she loves, and living out her dreams. That’s all any of us can ask of you Isabella, that you continue to shine your light on the world. It’s bright enough to lead you to the very success you’ve been dreaming of.
