Fashion dolls flaunted the best in clothing designs, and this book explores the flashiest era. Barbie*r, Chrissy, and Dawn-size dolls were outfitted with colorful haute couture creations hot off the runways of Paris, from the last vestiges of the "mod" scene to the early '80s "new wave" gear. Toy manufacturers mimicked the day's top dseigners to create outrageous, fun outfits. Shown in pristine condition, in unopened original packaging, this book is a gem for collectors and designers alike. More than 400 outfits are shown, many for the first time in any book. Each is stunningly photographed, and includes current market values for collectors.
Carmen Varricchio was a design assistant for Geoffrey Beene in the 1970s and market editor and writer for the trade paper Women's Wear Daily in the early 1980s. He has collected doll fashions for nearly two decades, perusing doll shows, attending auctions, and answering ads.
