Meet the Two Little Girls Behind Mabo Kids
Sure, Emily McMaster’s daughters—Ruby, five, and Mabel, three—provide their modeling services free of change for their mom’s line Mabo Kids. But more and more, they want to be involved—and are full of unsolicited fashion advice.
“Ruby is an artist—she paints and draws. She’s always bringing me little drawings of clothes that I should make. Sometimes I wonder, ‘Have I created a monster?’”
“Sometimes she gives me feedback, but I don’t always like it! Ruby prefers frilly, girly things. She can be a tough critic.”
“Mabel doesn’t care much about Mabo. Maybe because I have always tried to dress her, she now insists on completely independent choices about her outfits. At some point she decided that her left shoe goes on her right foot and vice versa. She says, ‘It’s backwards shoe day!’ She goes all over town with her shoes on the wrong feet—we constantly have people coming up to us telling us. But she’s like that with almost everything she wears.”
