Hall Closet:15-year-old Kira Plastinina shows at Rome Fashion Week

Young Russian designer Kira Plastinina has been causing a buzz amongst the industry for a while now, but that hasn't stopped her from showing her spring/summer '08 collection at Rome Fashion Week overnight. To anyone who was in any doubt of her ability, the 15-year-old made it clear that she wasn't the product of her father's multi-millionaire help, wearing a t-shirt which boldly declared: "The World!!! I'm not a SUGAR-BABY".
The fun, flirty show swayed between puffy skirts, micro shorts and latex-like trousers. Her first New York store is scheduled to open this March, with another ten planned for Manhattan and L.A. Plastinina made headlines when Paris Hilton modeled in her last show in Moscow, it was rumored that the heiress was paid1 million dollars to do so by her father Sergei Plastinina.

**Guy's she fifteen, and for that she gets an "A+" from me!! This is really good to be from a youngster!! I'm really proud of her!
