The Cincinnati, Ohio, native and her parents flew to New York to turn some of Mayhem's cool drawings and dress creations into a nine-piece collection for J. Crew's kids' line, Crewcuts.

Mayhem brought some of her drawings to the offices and then worked with J. Crew's designers and patternmakers to make them a reality.

Here's Mayhem and her dad watching patternmaker Fukuji Honda construct one of her garments.


"Were amazed to watch this barely 4-year-old girl start meticulously folding the pleats on a skirt and placing stones very specifically and carefully on a top she had just fashioned around herself," said Cooper.


"She has such an inventive and creative personality that really resonated with us," said Cooper of the collaboration. "It was great to have a truly creative child be at the heart of the design process."
