It's an idea that was born at the beach and now a local teenager is set to launch her "Fish Flops" in Nordstrom.

Madison Robinson, 14, designed a brand called Fish Flops specially for Nordstrom. They feature blinking lights with sea creatures.

Born on Galveston Island, Robinson has a passion for drawing. And like all great ideas, Fish Flops came to her when she has hanging out of the beach at age eight.

"I love to draw and I love the beach and I came home from the beach one day and I drew them and I went to my dad and I said dad look, Fish Flops and started a brand from there," Robinson said.

She wrote a letter and sent pictures to buyers for Nordstrom and they will now be on display and for sale here in Houston and 64 others stores within the next two weeks.
