Jericho youth hones fashion to a T

Posted: Updated:
JERICHO, Vt. -

Like most 8-year-olds, Wyatt Leombruno-Nicholson loves to plays sports and hang out with his older brother, Harrison.

He also loves to dance. Besides his 'hip' moves he has another talent. Wyatt is a fashion designer.

"Most 8-year-olds don't put designs on shirts," he said.

Last year Wyatt's parents realized he was drawing -- a lot. He showed them hundreds of little faces and designs he had come up with. His parents suggested he put his doodles on clothing and Wy'seyes Designs was born.

"They feel modern and sharp and whimsical," said Tammy, Wyatt's mom.

Wyatt's designs are simple and to the point. "It's called a dude because it's just like a guy with teeth.

Reporter: Gina Bullard: How does it feel when you see people with your shirts on?

Wyatt Leombruno-Nicholson: Good, great -- you get the warm fuzzies," he said. "Fun in your stomach."

"This is hillbilly. He looks like that because he's lost some teeth. Big seller," Tammy said.

He takes his job of drawing seriously, constantly coming up with new designs.

"He makes faces or asks someone, 'could you make an angry face?' and then he'll draw that," Tammy said.

Reporter: Gina Bullard: Do you ever get sick of drawing?

Wyatt Leombruno-Nicholson: Sometimes, yeah.

Reporter: Gina Bullard: And then what do you do?

Wyatt Leombruno-Nicholson: Have some frosted flakes.

Wy'seyes Designs are for sale at the Jericho Farmers Market every week.  The business has turned into a family project. "Your parents basically do everything but after you do a lot you can play football and stuff," Leombruno-Nicholson said.

Wy'seyes Designs has sold over 200 shirts. The money is going towards a new ipod for Wyatt.

Made in Vermont apparel for the kid in all of us.
