Local fashion photographer turned designer Debbie Porter, whom is also a close friend to Yellow Magazine, was featured at Market in Dallas last week for her Fabulous Phebe line.
“Phebe Dreams Big” is the first in a series of children’s books where Phebe can conquer the fashion world with a flare for being original. She definitely is what we call a “Fashionista”, meaning she is a fashion fanatic! She has a cat named Tino, a funny little character with a “cattitude”, who supports her every whimsical dream. All ages will love Phebe including moms.
Phebe’s message is to inspire the younger generation to “Dream Big.” In the second of the Fabulous Phebe series recently released, “Tino’s Tail,” she teaches her cat Tino, that what he may think is a problem (Tinos super long tail) can turn into that unique thing about him. In Tino’s book, his tail inspires one ferosh line of fashion designs with fur balls everywhere! “Fashion and a good message works, watching the kids engage with the Phebe character and her first fashion photo shoot was a great experience,” says Debbie Porter. Girls’ clothing sizes four to ten; dolls on the assembly line; trademark in place; etc. Suddenly it seems our biggest style icons are all under 14 years old. Phebe followers – you can watch as this little creative character grows in endless possibilities.
After a successful kickstarter campaign, Fabulous Phebe has expanded into 7 states, and been featured in Ciao Bella! and on Great Day Houston.
