It's not often that we come across a child prodigy that shares his love for fashion at the tender age of four. 

But a mother shared a short snippet of how this young boy's journey began at four when he expressed interest in being a fashion designer. 

It was at this point that mom helped her little boy's dream come to reality. 

Watch the reel that briefly describes Max Alexander's journey, courtesy of TikTok Max’s journey to couture fashion designer also includes countless support from this community! 🙏🏻 We are forever grateful and humbled by the encouragement you offer Max and our whole family! ❤️ #teammax 🫶🫶🫶🫶🫶 #fashioninspo #fashiondesigner #fashiontrends2024 #fashiontiktok #fashioninspiration ♬ Vivaldi-Four Season-Winter-3 - 中国爱乐乐团

Max Alexander isn't just an inspiration to many people; it's his relaxed demeanour (we think that has a lot to do with his age) that makes him an even greater designer. 

There's something innocent and brilliant that comes with being an eight-year-old fashion designer. 

To be this young and so sure of yourself is something most people aspire to. We think there is a key ingredient here that cannot go unnoticed. His parents' support of his dream helps him feel confident in his ability as a fashion designer. 

Watch as he shares his input on the dresses at the Met Gala this year.
