Tweety Elitou is one of the youngest Fashionista’s recognized in the industry and the first and youngest to ever create a webisode that is based solely on fashion. Tweety is of Native American descent and comes from a very artistic family, which explains her colorful background. She is no stranger to the world of fashion. “I have been loving fashion since I was really, really little. My favorite store was the Gap because I loved the styles and how I could dress it up or down, anyway that I wanted, and I was only four!” she says. At the age of six, she graduated from John R. Powers’s modeling school in Philly, PA with top honors. While attending elementary school she grew in love with art and excelled not only in her basic learning of Math, English, Science and History but also in Art. She has won awards for her artistic work from the School District of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Free Library not just her visual works but also her poetry. She is an Evoluer Girl established by the great fashion diva and educator, Cheryl Wadlington, and was voted the most fashionable. In 2008, Tweety represented the graduating class of Evoluer Girls for 2007 at the Evoluer House Fundraiser which included honorary guest, Donald Taylor, the visual director of Gucci. Tweety also writes fashion articles and book reviews for her families well known art blog, Infinite Magazine. She has co-created covers for books, The Road to Emotional Healing and The Soul of Poetry for Neshee Publication. She makes jewelry, designs her own clothes, and loves photography in front of and behind the camera—a love that she shares with her dad.
Tweety has appeared in Naturally You! Magazine, reached #14 on the Heatlist Countdown at Literarydish.com, 3 Guys Don’t Lie TV, Fashion Frenzy TV and Mami Magazine. She was also featured on CBS Channel 3 by Nicole Brewer and the CW’s What’s Brewing. As an Iconz Model, she has done several fashion shows including the Sensationel Hair Idol in which the King of Hair Glynn Jackson stated, “She is a joy and pleasure to work with and I wish I had more models like her, she fills my heart.” She has been a guest judge for the Jo’ni Modelz, Inc- Rip the Runway Competition, the host of the FBH Philly Fashion Week for the youth (2009 Spring Collection), and she is the protégé of Essence Best-Selling author, Miasha and the spokes girl for her foundation, Ask Miasha. “Tweety is a great girl and very inspiring. She is someone that other little girls will look up to and I am so proud of her,” says Miasha.
She will be releasing her first book, Girl Power: the Go-To Guide for Teens to Becoming Perfect Young Ladies, and is now working on the sequel, Girl Power Two: Building a Better You! All of this while maintaining straight A’s in school every year.
Fashion Industry Experience
Young, Hip & Chic (YHC for short) was developed while Tweety was watching TMZ, Extra, and E! “I was watching these shows because I like to see what people are wearing but I was becoming so tired of seeing Brittany Spears and Paris Hilton without panties! Not to mention, I thought to myself, these are role models?” Tweety passionately expresses.
YHC is to celebrate the art of fashion by educating people between the ages of 12-19 years of age that fashion, in fact, is an art that is expressed from the designer to the people that purchase it. Each week, the show will focus on different styles from antique, to grunge, to whatever trend is evolving and revolving. YHC will also inform people with fashion facts, the history of fashions, and the meaning of words that are heard and not often explained. “I think that to be a fashionista, you have to know the five W’s of fashion—who, what, when, where and why.” Tweety explains.
“The overall experience of YHC is to show that fashion can be fun; to know that clothes do not make you, you make the clothes, and being a diva is so overrated,” she explains. “I think that loving who you are from the inside shows on the outside, and that love of fashion, makes you a true fashionsita!”
YHC is also looking for stylists, beauty experts, designers, models, etc. that are looking for exposure and credits for their resumes and books. The show is also looking for sponsors that want to reach a young, hip and chic audience. So far YHC has reached on board The Beauty Studio, Hatchette Book Group, Curiosity Shoppe, and Make Up Inc.
