Dreamer

Isabella Rose Taylor

Isabella Rose Taylor certainly knows how to turn big dreams into even bigger realities. Last year, at the age of 13, Isabella landed her first clothing line in Nordstrom. Since then, the Austin native has gone on to debut her Spring 2015 collection at New York Fashion Week, was selected as a WWD|MAGIC emerging designer and was named one of Latina Magazine’s “Top 30 Under 30.” All of which Isabella has accomplished while balancing her growing fashion empire with attending college, writing poetry and painting.

Isabella believes much of her incredible success derives from her work ethic. “The best way to do something hard is to just begin,” she says. “I think you must immerse yourself in the field you want to be in, take classes and then just start doing it. Just keep creating projects. You’ll never get there if you aren’t actually doing.”
