Are you a fashion watcher? Do you enjoy geeking out over the TV show Project Runway? We just might have a lot in common. It fascinates me that throughout the history of clothing, from the fig leaf to today, there is still something excited to see and learn about dressing ourselves. While I’ll be the first to admit I have no place on the runway, I can assure you my designer’s eye loves to look at fashion and decided if it can be applied to my dolls. So check out this year’s New York Fashion Week and tell me if you see something you’d like your dolls to wear!!
