New dolls of the world
Posted by helen on June 4, 2012
Check out the new arrivals in the Barbie Collectors online shop:
Hawaii USA, Chile, Holland, India, Mexico demand that you open your wallets and doors for them… but you have choices to say Yes or No.
Holland & Chile have no Chance to make their entrance to my collections, I’ll leave my doors a half open to Hawaii, India & Mexico– if I ever encounter them on eBay without their costumes & the prices are right, I’ll adopt them.
The dolls of the world are boring. the designers are not inspired by the ever-changing cultures & their fashion, the design concepts are 30 years behind…
Take a look at how the Chinese fashion designers inspired by Chinese History & Culture:
This is a design inspired by “Blue & White” China Ware (China is famous for its porcelain, isnt it?)
another pretty & “historical” gown inspired by Emperor’s Dragon Robe & Dragon Wall in Beijing
(A British Museum now has this Dragon Gown in its collections)
I said before, Mattel should hire freelance fashion designers from different countries to design the “national” costumes that reflect Cultures & history…
