Mayhem's fashion chops so impressed Jenna Lyons and her fellow bigwigs at J. Crew HQ that they've brought her on board to create a special collection for the brand's childrenswear line, Crewcuts.

'When we met with Mayhem for the first time we were really curious to see how she would work and 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,' explains Jenny Cooper, Crewcuts' head designer.

'She has such an inventive and creative personality that really resonated with us.

'It was great to have a truly creative child be at the heart of the design process.'

Mayhem's nine-piece line launches in the spring, comprising clothing, shoes and accessories - and a lot of sparkle, if that moodboard's anything to go by.
