Inasmuch as there are a number of new visitors to this site, I want to first explain what you are seeing on this post. The premise of this blog is to provide a direct link between real fashion and clothes for the fashion doll. So for our purposes, fashion trends are most important to the process. Each season, I present "Doll's Eye View of Fashion Week." All of the original model's heads have been replaced with those of our favorite dolls. This is to help both inspire as well as provide a hint as to what the look could resemble on the doll. In addition, I choose a few outfits to make (photos of dressed doll standing next to the original model) to illustrate my own interpretation. This gives a reasonable idea of what you can expect. When looking over the catwalk shows, I choose styles that I feel will translate well to the scale of a 12" doll. If there is a look in particular you'd like, don't hesitate to bring it to my attention so that at a later date I can feature a tutorial..
Let the show begin!
Dolly Long Legs
Breath of Fresh Air!
Panting for More....
A Flash of Flesh
Peek-a-boo! Look for the bare midriff look to be big next summer. Along with that are also tops or dresses that show a sliver of skin. What's interesting here is how designers have reinterpreted looks from the bygone eras: 40's, 60's and 90's. Lengths are super long or super short.
This dress by Alexander Wang translates perfectly into a very pretty dolly dress especially when cut out of English cotton lace. China's wearing a simple cotton bra with ribbon that radiates from mid-bust and wraps around the waist.
Bea, on the other hand, wears Michael Kors "Summer of 1942" look. This is another bra worn with short-shorts (cut like old fashion panties) in a micro floral print. Note how a self belt marks the natural waist of the doll.
Yikes, It's Stripes!
Pretty Young Thing
Make Your Point

How Does Your Garden Grow
A Graphic Affair
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Simple and sexy, Anna is caught in a maze of tiny straps that wrap around the body over a hip hugging narrow skirt.
The girls weren't all that thrilled with London Fashion Week. The shapes and silhouettes were too overpowering and for the moment, they aren't quite sure what to do with the handful of items they found. For the most part, our next big focus will take everybody to Italy for Milan Fashion week.
