High Fashion Vintage Paper Dolls
When I was a kid, I loved playing with dolls – Barbie, Cabbage Patch Kids, you name it. One Christmas I received a strange gift – a flat doll made of paper. My eight year old brain thought it was a coloring book until I saw the little tabs on the paper clothing.
So when Dover Publications asked me if i would be interested in reviewing their Vintage Fashion paper doll collection, I squealed! Because while the 8 year old in me would have been happy with a Barbie knock off paper doll, the designer crazy grown up in me wants to play with some Chanel and Dior. The level of artistry of these paper dolls and their glamorous flat outfits are truly stunning. They are more like fashion plates than paper dolls.
And the details! Greta Garbo’s gown is covered in copper glitter.
I can’t wait to order more paper doll books for my nieces (and by nieces I mean myself). Hopefully I can influence them to love the beauty of classic fashion as an art form. Because these paper dolls are truly works of art!
