As you may know, some of us here in the fashionnation love dolls. We see them as scaled mannequins. And yes, we may give them story lines to create the eras in which the mannequin stands. Call us crazy, but you can never underestimate the reality that fashion dolls do not change weights or slouch. In fact, their silent nature lends itself to your creative talents.
Melissa at The Couture Touch is obviously under the spell of a fabulous muse. To us, fit and finish is equal to design inspiration. You may want to wander over to Melissa’s blog to see first hand some of the beauty that was demanded by her quarter-scale divas.
And please take the time to see how Melissa uses history to inspire her work. This post on 1950’s Fashion Photography – A Study in Black and White could inspire any budding artist to take on the era in any scale.
