Melissa Jade Aiello, also known as "Missy X," is a child prodigy graphic tee designer. This 11-year-old now has a full-fledged business illustrating tees for clientele that include Wiz Khalifa. The tops feature black and white hand-drawn portraits of Amy Winehouse, Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, Donatella Versace, and Yohji Yamamoto, all completed by Missy X herself.
She works on a commission-only basis, but according to British Vogue, there are talks to bring her brand to a bigger audience. She states that fashion defines who she is, and if she goes to school in sweatpants, people would be surprised.
She only draws people she thinks are interesting, like Donatella Versace. Her prints almost border on caricatures, but capture the essence of each persona flawlessly.
