To celebrate Russian Vogue's tenth anniversary top designers were each asked to design a matrioshka doll. Said dolls will be auctioned off for charity and there will be a huge party, etc., etc. What cute little dolls! And what a change it is to see the designs on a chubby little marshmallow rather than a stick thin model. My favorites are below, see the entire gallery here.
And pop on over to my other blog to see each doll with her model counterpart!
Roberto Cavalli and Prada
Pucci and Antonio Marras
Moschino and Maison Martin Margiela
Marni and Giles
Alena Akhmadullina and YSL
One last thing. In one of my classes I have to do a design project where my "target customer" is a more mature woman, age 30's - 70's, who likes fashion and I need to make her 4 outfits. Give me your suggestions, please! If you fit this demographic, what do you like to wear? Dresses, pants (what kind?)... What is your ideal outfit? Is there a dress in your head that you are looking for but can never find? Is there anything you wish designers would realize? (Like: it would be nice if not ALL dresses were sleeveless, etc.) How do I keep it fashionable but age appropriate?
If you aren't this demographic, who cares? Leave me your thoughts anyways. Thank you, my dear readers!
