In the past few years, we have seen multiple examples of how social media and the internet have impacted the lives of people all across the world. The platforms that were initially created to make human connections stronger have now become a great medium for brands and professionals to do marketing, advertising, and even sell products directly to their customers.
Social media networks like ‘X’ (previously Twitter) and LinkedIn are becoming the go-to platforms for companies to hire employees. And, to gain the attention of these brands, we are seeing online users creatively expressing their skills to stand out among the crowd.
A similar incident is making the rounds on the Internet after a mother shared the drawings made by a 13-year-old named Milan. The drawings have designs for the popular luxury brand Louis Vuitton.
In November 2023, Milan shared his drawings with his mother, expressing his passion for fashion and leather. His mother shared the designs on Twitter.

Mon fils est juste un petit peu, beaucoup, passionné par votre marque et le cuir.
