I love this time of the year when I select the Top 10 Photos of 2023 – Fashion + Adventure. It’s both a review of the year and a time to brainstorm ideas for 2024. Somehow, when I’m reviewing the year, inspiration comes. Enjoy the photos 💖

Bespoke Family Heirloom
My second bespoke design for 2023 was for Mallory, the youngest flower girl I created a design for. Her Mom generously shared these pictures. She looked adorable in her pink velvet lace and silk flower headband with matching shoe clips.

October in Colorado is quiet and so beautiful and unexpectedly warm this year. I brought cute Fall sweaters to wear and that didn’t happen. I was honored to receive an invitation to go wedding dress shopping with my great niece and her Mom, my niece. This is hands down my favorite work-related fun to do. Amazing Boutique In Fort Collins

Most Adventurous – The Polo Classic
I attended the Polo Classic for the first time in 2023 as a guest of my millinery teacher, Karen Morris. The photo shows the stylish hats she brought to the event. I loved everything about this event especially the fashionable hats. The day was filled with the finest Polo match in the rain and a well stocked Hospitality tent by Karen Morris Millinery

A new collection takes 1-2 years to create and design a photo shoot. 2023 was the first year into creating designs for an upcoming collection for launch in later 2024.

When I’m not in the studio or the Boutique I’m often found with these two “sidekicks”. My husband Marv and/or my granddaughter, Nora.
That’s a wrap for 2023. Thank you to our customers and all the persons that make Marti & Company, happen and especially for the new people we met in 2023. So looking forward to 2024!
