dollhouse

In case one ever cared to doubt my laziness, I am still not unpacked from Fashion Week. And I am just now uploading my photos. Better late than never though, right? So my favorite part of Fashion's Night Out at Barney's was the night winding down and getting to calmly enjoy Andrew Yang's runway recreation dolls. They're all FW10, except for the McQueen ones at the bottom, and click to enlarge. These are my favorites but there are lots more & more details at the flickr set. And to answer a question from the comments, he made the dolls and the clothes -- everything.

Ruben & Isabel Toledo (!!!!)


Givenchy.


Balenciaga.



Rick Owens.


Proenza Schouler.



Lanvin.


Marc Jacobs.


Alexander McQueen (couldn't remember or find the season. Anyone? Bueller?)

McQueen SS07.


McQueen SS03.

McQueen FW10.

And my favorites...
Rodarte! I mean, there is an assload of different kinds of fabrics in the original looks, and to find them in mini-form is nuts. Plus I think the Rodarte looks themselves are the most fit for dolls. Which dolls are your favorites?


No clue what this pose is.

Andrew was excited to talk about his dolls and each one seemed to have a story. He'd found the materials everywhere -- stuff he'd already collected, things found at fabric stores, at dollar stores. And that's the best part, that these aren't the exact runway looks, but more personal, which really is the way both dolls and clothes should be.
