CHICAGO (WLS) -- A TikTok sensation from the Chicago area, with a flair for fashion design recently had her work featured at New York Fashion Week.

She is getting more attention for the source of her design inspiration. Her designs are from ones her grandmother made.

"She had these wonderful sketches from when she went to fashion school when she was in her late teens and I have been recreating them on social media, on my TikTok and everyone has been kind of following along on the journey. They seem to all really enjoy it," Julia said.

Julia joined ABC7 to talk about how she got a show in Fashion Week and how long it took her to make the collection for the show.
