Martin said, "I was inspired to get into the fashion game because I like to wear and own clothing that no one carries in the mall or around town and in a cosmopolitan city such as Houston, that`s not so easy to do." Oscar made the fashion industry look so appealing and if I can only be a little bit like him, I will be great. "
