Meet Megan Kent, 11-Year-Old Oscar SWAG Designer

In the cutthroat world of fashion, an up-and-coming designer needs every possible edge. For 11-year-old Vero Beach, FL resident Megan Kent (pictured), the advantage comes in the form of mom Tricia, owner of boutique publicity firm Public Relations Diva.

Ahead of their weekend visit to Los Angeles, where the tandem has traveled to showcase Megan’s Love Gone line of T-shirts at one of the many Oscar weekend SWAG suites, Tricia was kind enough to contact FishbowlLA. Mom also separately engineered a nice bit of local media coverage.

Tricia is of course no stranger to the concept of a press release. For the one framing Megan’s presence February 25th-26th at the Alive! Expo Green Pavilion & MixMedia Award Oscar Suite, she cleverly ties her daughter’s young age to that of Winter’s Bone Best Actress nominee Jennifer Lawrence and 10.4-years-old Oscar record holder Tatum O’Neal.

We’re pretty sure you’ll be hearing a lot more about Megan as this weekend progresses. In addition to presenting her wares to celebs, Megan’s T-shirts are also included in the gift bags being handed out at the suite.
