Goodness gracious! It has been an eternity since I've posted anything about my talented 10 year old nephew and his mannequin muse Martinique or Martini for short. Creativity is something that can't be forced--- sometimes you just have to wait until inspiration strikes. Well, my nephew's keen designing eye was certainly inspired when he saw some hidden potential in the following piece of floral fabric.
I tell ya, I just see a lot of flowers and leaves in a rather controlled color palette. And you? My nephew saw two fab designs which were hiding in that swirl of patterned foliage. Just the other day, my phone made a new message alert beep and upon opening my email, I saw something from my nephew titled "Martinique fabric option 1", and my jaw hit the floor. Just as I was replying how much I loved the look, hair, styling.... I got a second email titled, "Martinique fabric option 2", and I passed out from excitement.
Option 1 is on the left and Option 2 on the right. One piece of fabric + my nephew = snap, snap, and a round of applause. Remember, he's just 10. The styling is absolutely perfect. The short hair with the long dress is spot on for an afternoon of leisurely lunching and shopping in St Tropez whereas the long hair/ short dress is ideal for a sizzling evening on the town in Miami with gal pals. Fun, fun! Both looks are so runway-ready that I had to add a little photoshop fun.
Flawless. Stunning. Martinique!
Flirty. Dazzling. Martini! Are you all ready to place your orders?
Well done my super talented nephew! Thanks for the photos.
I've received some other truly inspired photos of Martinique recently and will be sharing those soon.
