Tiny fashionistas aged just four and five are set to launch their own fashion line

A pint-sized sister act are preparing to become Australia’s youngest CEOs with the launch of their first clothing collection.

Mia, five, and Tatiana Escalante, four, have a whopping 700,000 fans on Instagram after they were spotted strutting their adorable coordinating outfits around Australian Fashion Week in June.

The pair, who are based in Sydney, are using their ample success to bring the Mia x Tati Store to market, a collection of gender neutral, comfort-first clothes for fashion forward kids. 

‘At a young age the girls were very close and always enjoyed wearing similar outfits,’ this mother Nga, who only started their Instagram account two years ago, told Daily Mail Australia.

‘I would dress them in items that were a bit more oversized paired with sneakers rather than the usual “pink” outfits. As we often get complimented, I started to share some photos on Instagram for fun.

‘Brands started to notice the girls and would send us outfits to style. As they both grew, they developed an iconic look which has inspired other parents to dress their kids the same way. 

‘It just made sense for the girls to start their own fashion brand that really represents their style and show how simple it is to create trendy looks with everyday essentials.’

While Mia and Tatiana are still too young to understand their ‘fame’ they often get recognised in the street while wearing Gucci sneakers, Burberry T-shirts and Culture Kings tracksuits.

‘They love wearing anything that’s comfortable where they can run and play around in,’ she added.

Their parents said they are not under pressure to continue modelling or working in the public sphere when they are older. 

‘It really comes down to what they want to do when they grow up,’ Nga said.
