'I spent a lot of time in Miami when I was working on the Faena Hotel project,' says Martin speaking from New York, where she’s working with husband Baz Luhrmann on a forthcoming Netflix series, The Get Down. 'The glamorous 1950s vibe of Miami, as well as huge amounts of research into the 1940s hotel scene there, really led me to a couple of motifs that were very popular in that time period,' she explains.
