Tavi Gevinson, editor of Rookie Mag and super fashion blogger (need we remind you of the incident with her big ass bow on the front row of Christian Dior at the tender age of thirteen), is headed out on the road this summer with some of her best friends and co-workers for a Rookie Road Trip. Tavi took to her monthly editor’s letter to announce the news to Rookie followers. From New York to Los Angeles, she’s asked her fans to meet them along the way and even suggest the places to gather!
In Tavi’s own words, the Road Trip will go as follows:
“We will stop along the way to meet up with you guys and do stuff like
get ice cream and make zines and talk about our feelings and reenact the
heart-to-heart in The Breakfast Club and also brainwash you all into becoming our friends wait what? Maybe we’ll just get ice cream and make zines and talk.“
My how things have changed since I was a teenager. Saying that, there also weren’t thirteen year olds sitting front row at Dior shows when I was a teenager. Tavi has paved the way forward for young women dreaming of one day working in the industry and she’s done it without batting an eyelash at her critics. That’s quite the accomplishment and quite frankly if I were in any of the cities she were visiting I would step out just to shake her hand and say congratulations.
