MIAMI (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – There’s no age limit to being fierce in the fashion world.

Or so it seems, judging by the fashion sketches created by 10- year-old Christopher Abella, Miami’s youngest fashion design student.

Abella’s talent was spotted by a teacher at his school who passed along his drawings to designer Tracy Ellyn, who’s now taken the young stylemaker under her wing.

Ellyn says Christopher is on the level of a student attending the world’s top fashion schools and could work for the famed fashion houses on Seventh Avenue in New York right now.

That would be a dream come true for Abella who sees fashion as a real career, not just some hobby.

Even though he’ll set the fashion world on fire someday, Ellyn says there’s nothing flaming about the young boy that would cause him bullying.

She says Christopher is “just as adept at baseball” as he is at matching fabrics.
