She’s the supercute, supercreative wunderkind who took the fashion world by storm—at only four years old!—with her blog featuring handmade paper reconstructions of red-carpet dresses (OK, her parents helped). For summer 2015, we asked Mayhem (who was nicknamed after her free-spirited attitude) to design an exclusive capsule collection for crewcuts using her arts-and-crafts know-how, then we had our designers turn her paper creations into the real thing. Seriously, kids these days…

Mayhem, four, creates a T-shirt design using two of her favorite materials: jewels and glue.

Mayhem started making dresses out of paper with the help of her mom, the “assistant paper-dress maker.” Here, they show the crewcuts design team how it’s done.

Mayhem used gold gift-wrapping tape for the stripes when designing this dress.

Mayhem, with her dad, watches the construction of one of her designs by Fukuji Honda, our longtime patternmaker. Next on her agenda: Learn to use a sewing machine!

Where does Mayhem imagine little girls wearing this romper and scarf? The playground and the park!

Our creative director, Jenna, shows Mayhem the J.Crew way to style her pom-pom scarf.

Mayhem puts the finishing touch on our model Gia’s outfit: a neon sparkly necklace.

Stay tuned for more news on our collaboration with Mayhem!
