Grant Mower — The New Jason Wu?

By: Myrtle Jurado Aspiring to be a fashion designer? Want to dress for high-profile women? Better hurry up and get on it, because 12-year-old Grant Mower is already way ahead of us. A regular student from Flower Mound, Texas, Mower sketches and sews various women's fashions -- and he does a pretty darn good job! He's already beat high school and college students in a local design competition. Mower's white one-strap gown landed him first prize, which has helped jump start his already early career. Though being an aspiring fashion designer in middle school brings in bullies of all sorts, his mother thoroughly supports his decisions; she even occasionally helps him with sewing. One of Mower's favourite pastimes is watching fashion shows -- preferably Valentino or Karl Lagerfeld. This 12-year-old wonder already has sketches planned for when he meets Michelle Obama next week; he's hoping to be given the chance to dress her. Honestly though, how could you say no to him? He's adorable!
