Stylists may live and breathe fashion for other people, but when it comes to their own wardrobes, comfortable, casual clothing is essential for a job that requires them to run from showroom to show- room and keep order on the set. So it didn’t come as a huge surprise when Gavin chose a collectionof cool, relaxed athletic gear to wear during histurn as a fashion stylist for Earnshaw’s—after all, comfy clothing is key to his life as a rambunctious pre-schooler.
On an average day, Gavin sets asideat least nine hours for running around—training for the recreational soccer team he plans on joining soon—and counts swinging on swing sets, riding his plasma car around the house and playing with trains as some of his favorite hobbies.
Gavin confessed that while he had fun picking out “sweats” and making friends at our office, it’s really trains—not fashion—that rev up his engine. He goes wild for Thomas the Tank Engine, having inherited his older brother’s train table and Thomas toys. Since then, he’s added to the collection with Thomas the Tank Engine DVDs, a Knapford shed to house Thomas and his friends, and a Western Chief rain set. Gavin even celebrated his second birthday with a Thomas-inspired cake. “He was mesmerized,” his mom says. —Angela Velasquez
