Guess what I did today?
I learned how to use a Serger!
Part of being sponsored by Singer is that they gave me one!
I know, I am so so so LUCKY !
I know most of you are wondering ...
first of all, what is a Serger ?
It is an "overlock" sewing machine with five spools of thread! Yep! Five needles to thread!
Basically, it is a super-uper cool sewing machine that will finish edges of fabric while cutting at the same time! I know: complicated but very cool!
and second of all, why on earth is that so exciting?
Well, a Serger is like a wizard! As soon as I know how to use it, ... OMG! Just wait!
Thank you Singer for helping me to learn more and more techniques!
Thank you Janice! She was my teacher today - super nice and cool!

That is so cool!
What is even cooler is that she wore the dress I made her to her big sister Kali's Birthday party!
Even cooler is that the dress looks so good on her ! and I designed and made it!
I am so glad you like it, Bella!
Can't wait to see you on "Dance Dance Chicago!"
Btw: I like to dance and paint too!
xoxoxo ciao for now, Cecilia

Today I had no school in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr...
I have dreams, too!
I have a dream that there will be no poor children.
I have a dream that all little girls will get to wear dresses if they want to.
I have a dream that all children will be healthy and that all babies will get milk.
I have a dream that all children in Haiti will be okay and that their schools will be rebuilt.
I have a dream that all children will get to learn.
I have a dream that all children will get to pursue their dreams.
What is your dream?
p.s. of course I dream of going back to Paris soon and meeting Karl Lagerfeld! !!!!!
xoxo ciao for now, Cecilia
Last night I received 2 comments from one of my follower...I loved it, it made me feel really good and I wanted to share it with you...her name is Nissa and she wrote:
Hi Cecilia! I love your fashions, and I think it's so cool that you are a fashion designer at only 10 years old. I'm twelve, and I hope to be a fashion designer too! You are a great role model, and you inspired me to become a designer too. When you get this comment, could you please email me at ..........@gmail.com? I would really appreciate it. Thanks Cecilia! Ciao for now! lol

New York City Fashion Week!
It all started with a photo shoot. As soon as my photo shoot launching my "spring looks" with Bella Thorne, I packed my bags as fast as an olympic swimmer swooshes through the lane. I hurried to the airport and got on the plane. I was going to the "Big Apple", also known as New York City!
I was so excited to step onto the plane in my fabulous boots, I mean, they were just so Fashion- Week ready. Being invited to Fashion-Week in New York City meant one thing: Fashion Shows.
Walking into Bryant Park made my heart jump for joy, just like a watch continues to tick. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw my very own name placed directly in the second row of the fashion show.
I was so thrilled to be able to sit in the second row of New York Fashion Week. I could hardly believe that I, Cecilia Cassini, just 10 years old, was sitting next to some of the most famous people in the Fashion World such as; Brooke Shields, the editor of Teen Vogue Magazine, the publisher of Vogue Magazine and an editor for Vanity Fair, Italia.
My dream has finally come true!
Of the many shows I saw, I loved : Tdashi, Perry Elis, Thuy, Perry Ellis and Carlos Miele.
Brights! Gold! Black! Gorgeous stuff. I kept pinching my mom, asking her to take me directly to the fabric stores in NYC. I was so inspired! I was begging to get some fabric and a machine!
I was as happy as a little kid would be to running around in a candy shop! I couldn't believe I was actually sitting there seeing the amazing new fashions walk down the runway. The new collections that I saw gave me more creative ideas than I have ever had before!
Leaving New York City will make me sad but at the same time, I can't wait to get back home to start on my New York-inspired Collection.
I will never forget my trip to New York City Fashion Week!

Where I am From…
I am from the world of sewing back and forth,
the world of fabric making decisions, and
I am from the world of picking and choosing clothes.
I am from a jungle of hair sitting on my shoulders.
I am from a shoe box of new Prada stilettos, as my heels arch in happiness.
I am from pearls, clinging as I prance, from the smell of chic Paris, window shopping as
my Chanel coat wraps around my body.
I am from mascara, dancing up my eyelashes, looking around,
Chanel - my life, my inspiration.
My perfectly manicured nails cutting the fabric.
I am from a designer's point of view: sequin, leopard, and metallic.
But truly: My life, my everything is fashion.
