When asked what her school thought of her missing class during fashion season, the 16-year-old explained to WWD,  "It wasn't easy because I couldn't tell them I had to take off for the Prada show because it had to be a secret ... So I just told them, 'I have something really, really important so I need a week off but I can't tell you why.' They were like, 'That's weird but okay.'"
