About Tavi Gevinson
In 2008, 11 year old Tavi Gevinson started the blog, Style Rookie. From the confines of her bedroom in the suburbs of Chicago, she wrote about personal style and chronicled the development of her own. Within two years, it averaged 50,000 hits per day and fashion designers from around the world invited Tavi to attend and write about fashion shows. Soon this tiny wunderkind's interests grew beyond fashion, into culture and art and, especially, feminism.
In 2011, when Tavi was 15, she launched ROOKIE, a website for girls like her: teenagers who are interested in fashion and beauty but also in dissecting the culture around them through a uniquely teen-girl lens. ROOKIE broke 1 million page views within its first six days. Lady Gaga called her "the future of journalism" Tavi's charming intellect shines in ROOKIE, arguably the most intelligent magazine ever made for a teen-girl audience. She writes with a humble but keen authority on such serious topics as body image, self-esteem, and first encounters with street harassment.To date, Tavi has written for Harper's Bazaar, Jezebel, Lula, and Pop, and is a contributing editor for GARAGE magazine. She has been profiled in the New York Times and The New Yorker, and has been on the cover of POP, L'Officiel, Zeit Magazin, and BUST. As a speaker, she has made numerous presentations at venues such asIdeaCity, TEDxTeen, L2 Forum, and the Economist World in 2012 Festival.
