Michelle Amir, personal assistant to Elizabeth Arden’s U.K. managing director, has fond recollections of the very first doll outfit she made: an old fashioned Little House on the Prairie–style dress with blue stitching on white calico. “My mum taught me to sew and I’ve been making dolls’ clothes since I was about five years old,” she recalls. “I was practically too small to use the sewing machine!”
These days she uses her seamstress skills to run up costumes for the vintage dolls she shoots for her rather unusual hobby of doll photography— creating images of dolls engaged in everyday domestic tableaux, from trips to the hair salon to a spot of shopping.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
