Fashion Focus

Looking for inspiration for your next dolly creations? My Dolls' Eye View  and Kens' Eye View Fashion Reports were designed with that in mind. Here's what to look for in these reports. Every season, I carefully scrutinize nearly all the catwalk shows in each of the four major fashion capitals. Not only do I bring you a snapshot of actual fashions to come, but it's also a suggestion of current styles I feel could be easily reinterpreted into 1/6 doll fashion.

The heads from my Barbies, Kens and Fashion Royalty collection replace those of the professional runway models in an effort to help you visualize how your doll might look in the outfit. Next I select a few garments and bring them to life by making them for my dolls. This is to give you an idea as to how the full scale style might translate into a much smaller version. This is also a way to help keep my blog current and at the height of high fashion!

We also look at what's happening on major red carpet events. Here again, we allow ourselves to be inspired by real celebrity style. We try to match up the doll to the look of each star. And....sometimes we've been known to "improve" on the styling!! It's all in the name of doll play, fun, fantasy and fashion!!!!

The redcarpet of the Oscars, the Emmy's, the Golden Globes and occasionally, the Golden another perfect place to be inspired by some pretty glamorous gowns. When interpreting these dresses for my dolls, I look again, for styles that might work for the proportion of the doll. In a few cases, I take the liberty to "tweak" the design or add "better" accessories. It's all in the name of fun!

In school, we called museum visits research. In dollyland, this is another excuse to go hunting for ideas for more dolly dresses!
