FINE APPAREL FOR YOUR FASHION DOLLS

Capricio by Ayal Armon

Hello, and Welcome to my dollbid store! My name is Ayal Armon, and I present to you extraordinary fashion in miniature. After studying and working as a fashion designer in Israel, I found the United States became my mentor, sharpening my skills through ladies’ apparel, custom design work for private clientele, and my own sportswear collection. Expanding my ideas, skills and talent at Otis/Parsons College of Art and Design in L.A., I then discovered a love for collecting fashion dolls, and I’ve been making doll clothes ever since.

Pavane by Ayal Armon

Throughout my career, I have received training in Israel, California and New York in the fashion arts and design, and after receiving my Master in Fine Arts, I taught fashion design and illustration for six years. My doll fashions have kept me occupied for the past ten years, and I find a new muse with each and every fashion doll I see.

Pearl by Ayal Armon

I believe fashion is an art that is incomparable to other visual arts, and among my designs, I approach style and quality in the same way I did with women’s apparel – with an elegant touch. Enjoy my current listings, and check back – I have new designs created frequently.

Throwback Thursdays: Art Dolls of the 1990s

Paul Crees and Peter Coe

Paul Crees and Peter Coe

The 1990s saw a rise in the Artist’s Doll, and the work was truly spectacular! Many of these dolls are hard-to-find – and if you can find one, you should seriously consider adding them to your collection, for they represent an era of sculpture and fashion artistry that paved the way for many doll genres we see today. Enjoy the eye-candy!

Tuesday Trends: Mini-YOU

logo

Looking for an action figure or 12-inch version of yourself? With all the new trends in 3-D printing these days, there’s a rising demand for customized heads. Since 2008, That’sMyFace.com has been creating resin heads based on your images to fit LEGO, Minimates, 4, 6 and 12-inch figures, including a ‘Barbie’ option. The customized heads are not suitable for children, but they can add a certain pizazz to your collection. From the website FAQs:

The custom-made head sculpts are made of a hard resin composite in full 24-bit color with a matte varnish. The colors are not painted on but are actually part of the make-up of a thick color outer layer of the model. Due the to the manufacturing process, the surface is slightly rough to the touch (sugar-coated) and some layering can be visible. Please avoid banging, wetting or direct sunlight.

Eyelashes: Yes, Hand Applied

On her second day in Paris, Tulabelle decided to wear an ensemble inspired by her favorite fashion editor.  It looks straight off the Paris runway, although all of the pieces are vintage and they were found in her friend’s thrift store boutique. The sheer black organza blouse with exaggerated sleeves and a black pleather bustier draw all eyes on her at the shows.  She paired it with tight fitting black pants and black velvet platform pumps, a family heirloom necklace and ring add a personal touch and give her the look of fashion royalty.

Tulabelle is a 16-inch fully articulated vinyl doll with bright auburn hair and hand-applied eyelashes. A doll stand is included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

Here she is, the leader of the pack, the lady on the prowl! Agnes Von Weiss brings sophistication and determination to the couture hunt, as she fiercely sits in the front row of her favorite fashion show: her own. But fret not, a quick trip backstage and a clever costume change later, the Baroness is ready for the final look of the show in an elegant and sophisticated evening look only she can create on a whim.

Your 2014 online event doll is a fully articulated 12.5-inch vinyl fashion doll with an ultra polished hairstyle and hand-applied eyelashes. The Baroness’ look is composed of a two-piece jacquard ensemble with laced-up eyelet details and a faux-suede sleeveless biker inspired top. Agnes adds flair to this stylish affair with the addition of a fashionably tall straw hat, sunglasses and an oversized purse. Once the show is over and the party is about to start, our tempestuous lady completely transforms by changing into a long mermaid skirt, revealing her stunning bustier top! Two pairs of shoes, jewelry and doll stand also included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.
