Sugar and spice and all things nice

Monique Martinez @ Friend in FashionMonique Martinez @ Friend in FashionMonique Martinez @ Friend in FashionMonique Martinez @ Friend in FashionMonique Martinez @ Friend in FashionRarely do I spot a designer who truly takes my breath away, but that is exactly what happened when I first came across the incredibly beautiful designs of Arizona based, Monique Martinez.

Monique’s label, Ouma by Monique Martinez, is characterised by the unique blend of tulle and cotton, which create the perfect balance of fun, comfort and glamour. Monique’s love of ballet, graffiti and comic book art are all reflected in her stunning designs.

In addition to her collection of ready to wear pieces, Monique also creates custom orders, including wedding designs.

If you are a lover of beautiful design and photography (these images are thanks to the amazing Galaxie Andrews), I would encourage you to visit Monique's Etsy store.

You can also find Monique on facebook and twitter.

I am a huge fan of Monique's designs. They are playful, pretty and feminine and for me, are a modern take on all of the best parts of childhood dress-ups and ballet classes - what do you think?
