Twelve-year-old Rachel DeAngelis has had an eye for fashion since age 4.

“I actually wanted a dress that would match my Barbie doll — it was a pink smocking dress with green and yellow flowers,” DeAngelis said. “My grandma and I went to Jo-Ann’s and we bought the fabric and kind of sewed the dress together. But it was mostly her.”
