Fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson is preparing to meet one of her designer idols: Rei Kawakubo. The 13-year-old, who writes the blog Style Rookie, will be the guest of honor at Comme des Garçons’ holiday party on Friday at the 10 Corso Como store in Tokyo. Gevinson is arriving early this week with her mother and she has a series of photo shoots with Japanese magazines lined up, said a Comme spokesman. At the party, she will field questions from guests and pose for more snaps. Gevinson describes herself on her site as someone who “scatters black petals on Rei Kawakubo’s doorsteps and serenades her in rap.” She’ll finally get her chance.
