For more than 5 years I have been a collector of Integrity toys and Barbie dolls. Although in my large collection there are dolls from other manufacturers. Now, most of the collection consists of Fashion Royalty dolls. My first doll from this company was Dasha Purity Face. She just fascinated me.
My favorite dolls are: Agnes von Weiss, Elyse Jolie, Eugenia Perrin, Vanessa Perrin, Adèle Makéda, Isha Kalpana Narayanan and of course all Dasha d’Amboise dolls. I can’t forget the impressions of the 2017 Convention Fairytales. There were a lot of incredible dolls there. Golden Erin Salston is the top of skill! It is awesome the Integrity Toys develops and gives us such magnificent dolls. They are a source of inspiration for many creative people.
How I started to make clothes for Fashion Royalty dolls.
Now I am a designer and stylist of doll clothes. In childhood, I painted sketches of models on paper. Then she began to sew and engage in modeling and coloring for adults and children. At the moment, most of the work I do for dolls. That’s how all life is connected with creativity.
How to choose a bag and shoes for dolls in color and style of her clothing you will find in this blog.
I collect materials and ideas for my designs everywhere. I love to design patterns, study old books in museums and libraries. It is very interesting for me. I studied various designing techniques for a long time. Now I apply them to build doll patterns. I do not use ready-made patterns from the Internet as they do not give a good result.
I also love harmony in everything. Nature provides many beautiful color combinations. If you look at nature, you can learn a lot. To be able to create harmonious outfit, I learned how to make doll shoes and bags. Now I make doll shoes fit for Fashion Royalty FR2, FR6, NuFace, NuFace2 bodies. I select the color palette for each outfit. I work only with genuine leather. Sometimes I use natural jute rope. Genuine leather is strong and durable. Doll shoes look like real adult shoes by exclusive craftsmen. It does not crack like shoes made of artificial leather.
