Freya Fossaceco is still too young to stand up – but that hasn’t stopped the adorable youngster from becoming one of Britain’s most stylish babies. Her Mum, Kirsty Whelan, 26, has been photographing Freya in a selection of bright and eclectic outfits since she was just 10 weeks old.
Smiling up at the camera, wearing coloured headbands and fashion-forward patterned jumpsuits, this model has all the makings of an Instagram style queen – except that she is only eight months old.
The stylish youngster now has more than 5,500 followers on her Instagram account @forget-me-not-frey-frey and has baby clothes designers clamouring for her to model their newest creations.
Kirsty said: ‘I was quite new to Instagram before Freya was born, but I just started taking pictures of her and people kept on liking them.’
Freya has now become a brand representative for Instagram baby clothes companies such as The Bow Boutique and Bowties & Candyfloss – who send her free and discounted clothes to wear in her stylish snaps. Kirsty, who lives in Bath with fiancé Dan, studied textiles for fashion and interiors and was inspired by Freya’s online success to start creating outfits of her own.
The mum, who left her job in publishing when she became pregnant, has now started designing head bands and jumpsuits for the miniature model. Now Kirsty is getting requests from as far away as the US and Australia from mums clamouring to get hold of Freya’s outfits.
