I can’t help it. What I want is for you to smile and be happy.” 2020 is a year most of us will never forget. What do you miss? Who do you love? Q, a new collection of works by Martin Hsu is dedicated to our families and friends in these uncertain times. Mighty little women are symbols of hope and happiness in full bloom, wearing silk organza peony dresses inspired by Taiwanese floral textile and Alexander McQueen. Mermaids, fairies, animals and sprites are kindred spirits that keep us safe from harm when the world feels dark and precarious. Cherry Blossom wishes are beautiful blessings that remind us to keep faith and find peace within. Created entirely in quarantine, Martin hopes these exquisite and whimsical new works bring you and loved ones joy, happiness, and some peace of mind in 2021 and on. Stay safe and be well.
