Natalie Martin is a long time friend and a beautiful creative collaborator with Oishi-m and we're incredibly excited to have launched a Natalie Martin x Oishi-m collab for a couple of pieces from our recently released Summer 17 collection.

This beautiful yardage was painted during her adventures in Mexico. In the heat of the midday sun she would hang out on her little bungalow porch and paint the amazing tiles and patterns found covering every surface. The decorative painting became this yardage and we hope it brings you joy and reminds you of sunny, relaxed happy days on the west coast of Mexico.

The yardage was then turned into rolls of amazing fabric and applied to the Diamond Dusk T Dress, which has 'cut n' sew' panels, cap sleeves, a drop tail hem, scalloped sides and front stash pockets for collecting treasures. And here it is, the finished product in the home of Natalie Martin's design studio in Torquay, Australia.

We couldn't resist using this incredible fabric to make the Treasure Trove Leggings too, with the added detail of a specialty swingtag to celebrate our proud collaboration with our local artistic talent and friend - thanks Nat! (pic above by Natalie Martin)
