A MOTHER has revealed that her toddler is raking in the cash as a fashion influencer and model, with the little one’s wardrobe now worth a staggering £2,000.
Elise Prior is a three-year-old fashion influencer from Berkshire who has gained more than 23k followers on Instagram – and she’s on her way to earning enough for a house deposit.
Her mother, Sophie Howe, 28, started posting photos of her on Instagram when she was just six months old.
Sophie decided to start the account to connect with other mums and share her little one’s cute baby pictures.
The account became popular as Elise grew up and started having a “really unique look”, with Sophie saying Elise’s career really blew up when she was two.

After noticing how popular she was becoming on Instagram, Sophie put Elise forward to several children’s modelling agencies.
While she thought they were in with a chance of receiving some work out of it, the 28-year-old mum never thought that her daughter would soon be raking it in.
Elise has now worked with the likes of Zara, Next, M&S, River Island and Sainsburys.
While the mum has faced some backlashing from sharing photos of Elise online, she is putting her daughter’s earnings into a savings account.
“I do get criticism – some mums really don’t agree with it, but we’re setting up her future,” Sophie told Metro.co.uk.
“The modelling is a regular job for her, and it pays unbelievable money.
“It’s not easy for the parents – we have to go into London regularly and keep her happy during the photoshoots.”
Sophie said her followers started to increase not only due to her unique look but also because other parents wanted to know where her clothes were from.
This eventually led to a variety of collaborations with large fashion companies, with Elise most often wearing Zara and H&M.
Sophie hopes that Elise’s work now will set her up for her future.
Elsewhere in child models, my daughter’s modelled since she was 5 & wants to be the next face of Dior, I don’t care if people think she’s too young.
And in parenting, I never call my kids bad and if they’re excited, they can yell as much as they want – I’m no strict parent.
