The moment we have all been waiting for has finally come. British news outlet The Sun reported Friday that the mini-mogul had inked a $2.3 million deal for a kids’ clothing line. The line was reportedly called “Suri” and set to launch clothing, shoes and accessories in New York department stores this fall. A source said: “Suri is only seven but she is incredibly interested in clothes.” Well anyone with eyes can see that.
The child has been wearing designer labels and walking around in kitten heels since she stopped crawling. Suri, at only the age of seven, is building an extremely strong brand. She is practically as famous as her parents and is unquestionably the best-dressed celebrity child out there. Dare I say, she may even have a stronger brand than her mother, who has a fashion line called Holmes & Yang. Katie told New York magazine back in 2010 that Suri knows a lot about fashion. From NYMag:
“I want this sleeve cut,” and it’s like, “Okay, we’ll cut it.” She picks out all of her own clothes and has since she was 1½. Tom and I went to the Met ball a couple of years ago, and I had this beautiful red gown and these royal-blue shoes that I wasn’t planning on wearing, but Suri made me put them on and so I was like, “Okay, I trust you.”
So basically Suri has been dressing her mother since she four. This news really comes as no surprise to me then. Suri has been prepping for this moment since she crawling around in Gucci diapers. Here is how you get a design deal, the Suri Cruise way.
