The 2015 Little Miss Michigan Amazing winner has just returned from New York Fashion Week.

9-year-old Peytyn Herron, who has launched her own clothing lines, modeled for designers at the Arts Heart Fashion show in New York on Sunday. 

Herron started her own clothing line, Pageant Girl Designs, in January 2016, and was invited to the Live Out Loud Charity Fashion Show in Chicago, where she was selected to close the show.

She went on to do shows in Canton, Detroit and Miami before heading out to NYFW in September 2016, where she brought dresses and gowns from her fashion line.

"One day before school, she made a few sketches and I realized she had real talent," said her grandmother, Lynne Burke.

She also launched another fashion line, called Bel Ange Couture. 

This past February, Herron won Red Carpet Concierge International Oscars for Michigan Youth Designer of the Year and Youth Model of the Year.

"She also just hosted her first charity fashion show for children with cancer," Burke said. 

Herron brought her Bel Ange Couture line to NYFW this year, and will celebrate her tenth birthday soon.

"I'm amazed at this young lady, and I think she's going to take the fashion world by storm," Burke said.
