Dolly Couture

Andrew Yang Couture clad dolls
ss10 couture dolls

As a child I loved my dolls and cared for them as if they were my own children. I especially liked getting them dressed up for a special occasion, perhaps a dolly's tea party. I loved the itsy bitsy clothes and teeny tiny details on them. Of course my dolls clothes weren't exactly couture, even though I would very much have liked them to be. I am guessing that I am not the only fashion and dolly lover around as their has been quite a bit of talk lately about Louboutin clad Barbies and other sorts of collaborations.

These couture clad dolly's really caught my eye though. They were created by Andrew Yang, artist and former Dennis Basso employee. He has previously made plenty of couture detailed dolls but these lovely little model dolls in mini versions of outfits from the ss10 collections are by far of the most interest to me. If you were wondering who would wear these clothes, now you know. The clothes are gorgeously intricate and detailed copies of Lanvin, Givenchy, Rick Owens, Gareth Pugh and Proenza Schouler to name but a few. They are available to buy at (if you love dolls, you have to check out this site) and if you don't see an outfit you like, you can get one made. Hmm I think one in a Luella heart dress would be lovely.
