Pink Strawbs

Artist Bio

Mari Forbes debut fashion collection will showcase her love for how clothing can be an outlet for expression and boost how someone feels. Her fashion style will create a dreamy night time atmosphere that feel like home, wrapped in cute and soft pastels, and adorable imagery like clouds, stars and fluffy cats.

Artist Statement

My Collection, Pink Strawbs, uses pastel colors and flashy designs that are inspired by Japanese street fashion. The lolita silhouette and soft colour palette stand out amongst the natural colours of the world.

The soft comfy plush of the cloud imagery and fabrics represent comfort and dream-like memories. Metal details conjure the exposition of growing up and losing that innocent image of the world. Pink Strawbs reminds us to hold onto the memories that make us who we are.
