"It's really exciting when brands reach out to us and invite us in for catalog shoots; she's worked with Frankygrow, Kaorinomori, nunuforme, and GeeWhiz. And she was featured in MilK Magazine France in 2016. I'm also happy that I’ve made lots of connections with other stylish kids and their mothers through Rin’s WEAR and Instagram profiles."
Do you get a lot of positive feedback from other parents on Rin's style?
"We get a lot of nice comments like, 'Your kid is so stylish!' It makes me very happy when other moms or people my age give us positive feedback."
Social media can be a scary place. Any drawbacks to Rin being in the spotlight?
"It rarely happens, but sometimes strangers who know Rin on social and have actually seen her by chance leave comments like, 'I saw Rin the other day!' I don’t really like this because it makes me worry about [her safety] and how many people recognize us."
Do you consider your daughter a style star?
"I’ve never seen her status as a style star. She is just a 5-year-old girl with a cute smile."
