Jazmin Whitley, the designer of the fashion line Li Cari, is only 19 years old, but has already designed six collections and has become the youngest designer to ever show at Fashion Week around the world! Kidzworld sat down to talk to this up-and-coming fashion designer - check it out!

Sindy: Hey Jazmin, congrats on showing at Fashion Week!
Jazmin Whitley: Thank you so much!

Sindy: How's it feel to be the youngest designer to show at LA and New York Fashion Week?
Jazmin Whitley: It's really exciting! It feels very rewarding!

Sindy: What were the best and worst moments at Fashion Week?
Jazmin Whitley: Definitely Times Square! We got to have a mini photo shoot right in the center of Times Square and that was so exciting! And also the show - I was the finale and I got to close the show at Fashion Week, so it was definitely a big moment. And the worst... when I was fitting all the girls for their looks, one of the shirts wouldn't fit on the model. I tried it on five different girls and it wouldn't go on because I made it really small and it didn't fit, so I had to cut it and change the whole look right there. It was so hectic, I was so nervous, it was not good!

Sindy: How would you describe your label, Li Cari?
Jazmin Whitley: My label is really classic and kind of like an old Hollywood glamour feel. It's more modern and wearable, but it's still really classic, sophisticated and feminine.

Sindy: Do you plan on expanding Li Cari to include men's wear or kid's wear in the future?
Jazmin Whitley: Yeah, right now it's just women's apparel. I'm kind of working on starting up a men's line, but I'm really focused right now on showing for my women's collection that I've been creating. And I love kids, so I definitely want to do a kid's line later on in the future.

Sindy: How did you come up with the name?
Jazmin Whitley: It's actually Italian and it's my grandparent's last name and it means "dear to your heart" in Italian, so it's very personal.

    no you shouldn't!I bet, the friends that are pressuring you are girls only because they are jealous of your girl,because of her personality and style,and probably, most likely that they wanna be your girlfriend as well! ~~comment me back if you like!:)

    I'm not sure whether you have actual depression or not (Ask your doctor if you feel you do, they'll be able to help. ^^), but I'm really sorry you feel depressed. I've been there too, and it really does feel like no one cares.   I know you said it's awkward, but try talking to your dad about it. You said he's the only one who seems to listen, so I'm sure he will listen and try to understand. If you start feeling really depressed every day, try doing things to make you feel happier. I don't know what you like to do, but you should do things like relaxing, reading, talking to people and spending more time outside. Smiling more often can help relieve stress and make you happier as well. c: Try meeting new people too. It seems as though your current friends are bringing you down, so you can try to talk to them if you like or find more friends who'll listen and care about you (however, try to keep your old friends as well. They are your friends after all, and it's hard being lonely). You've got friends on here too. But please don't think about doing anything harmful to yourself. You might not be thinking like that now, but being depressed can lead people to this and it's really not the answer.  Good luck! ^u^
