Doll's Eye View: Fall 2013 New York Collections

Carolina Herrera's faux fur jacket and one inspired by it.
It's Fashion Week time!!! The marathon of catwalk presentations in the world's fashion capitals began in New York on February 7, moved on to London, then to Milan and will terminate in Paris on March 6. And while there are other fashion weeks around the globe, these are the cities with the world-class designers who impact major trends for the next six months to come.

Knowing how to create your own patterns and realizing them into a garment is important, but being attuned to what's happening in the world of style is essential. It is the difference between making doll clothes and creating fashion. In this post, Fashion Doll Stylist brings you a front row seat to the best New York fashion for Fall/Winter 2013....from a fashion doll's point of view, of course!

Barbie wears all the latest looks to appear on New York's catwalks.
Enjoy yourself as you look at all the latest fashions, but for your doll, you will need to take into consideration fabric weight, proportion, the size of the print, the scale of the texture. Look for simple silhouettes. You don't want to dress in a costume and neither does your doll!

Pretty dresses are a natural for the fashion doll, though she might prefer shorter lengths.
With a little trial and error, you'll learn what works and what doesn't. But in the meantime, over the next couple of weeks, I'll be posting styles I think would translate very well into chic duds for the foot-high fashionista.
Barbie in Ralph Rucci!!??!!

Later on, we'll stop and analyze few of our favorite runway looks then discuss how to create similar looks.
