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.

I love the fact that he's made them from saved fabrics found around his home.
They remind me of these Arabic dolls my mother has, I think its the similarity in the painted faces.

favio said...

i think this is a lovely venture between fashion and art, and something else that's the artists own contribution. lovely, and beautiful craftsmanship on his part.

i really love the mcqueen SS07 one, because i thought a beautiful amalgamation of natural/unnatural beauty, the natural vs manmade, and this just adds another dimension to that already existing bit of paradox.

radtastic and ethereal too.

I Love Lanvin!

Wow! I have no words to express how I have enjoyed these pics! I´m unable to choose one. I love all of them!

Just Another Londoner said...

Anyone? Bueller? Haha I need to watch that film again. I agree with you about the Rodarte dolls actually, I think they're the best because of the effort and detail which clearly went into making them.

Jim and I love the McQueen SS07, it's exactly the inspiration I've been looking for for my school art project. Have to say, one of the best things in all these photos is your lovely starry skirt!

iLove McQueen SS03, it's so free and feminine. They are all fabulous. Nice touch with the "Bueller" tie in on Aleexander McQueen <3 u, Tavi!

And you have such a cute outfit.

Amazing! I love the facial expressions...he's such a good artist.

Emma Winn said...

love these! I really like how the faces are flat with the features painted on them. Looks really ephemeral.
Definately rodarte is awesome and really fitting for the dolls they look like snow princesses!! but my favourite is mcqueen fall'01 (the clown one with the cool hair) I remember this collection because it was so creepy and cool and the models were on a merry-go-round. I think this doll is awesomely creepy and he's done the clown hair and makeup so well, exactly like the collection... I want it for the end of my bed!!!!!!!!!
yum yum yum all the dolls are sooooo good! is he selling them after??

I'm creeped out and intriqued by the dolls...ahh confusion. On the other hand I love you for taking this long it only proves that there is someone else out there that is as bad as me when it comes to unpacking.

María Chantal Rodríguez Nilsson said...

in love with the rodarte ones!!!

Annushka said...

I like the dolls, each of them is individual and at everyone the history, only the great master could make the creations soul, these dolls look as live and their dresses overturn consciousness the beauty and style!!! Bravo)))

Wendy Cook said...

Looove the dolls.
I totally remember the 2001 show for McQueen with the clowns. Pretty sure this particular model was dragging a skeleton behind her.

One of the Mcqueen modles was definatly dragging a skeletin. I remember it well.

Riley said...

So... the dolls are all white. This struck me at first. Then I realised the models were white in a great majority, too.
Does anyone else find this abnormal?

Tavi, one of your biggest strengths is that you make fashion fun!! You are one of those very rare fashion people that doesn’t take themselves too seriously – or is trying to act too cool for school. These dolls are amazing - they are so nice to look at! Thank you so much for sharing this :-))

Well, I like the Ruben & Isabel Toledo dolls, even though I’m not sure who these people are. I love the 1st McQueen doll -gothic – with the face, hair and frills! + the colourful McQueen, with the full head of hair. And I so agree with you about the Rodarte dolls – amazing detail (textures & fabric), and the garments just look so good on the dolls. My favourites also!

POSE: The fingers on the face suggest a kind of thoughtfulness. Whilst the strong stance and hand on the hip suggest a kind of confidence = thoughtful confidence = Thonfidence!?!?! :-))))
