News, reviews and photographs of Modern Fashion Dolls including Sybarite, BJDs, Fashion Royalty, Tonner Dolls, Gene Marshall, Barbie and my own experiences as a doll collector.
How I love this eupehmism: "inspired". What about "stolen without any reluctance whatsoever"?At the present prices for doll gowns or dressed FR2/monogram dolls you can actually get some reduced real designers' stuff. I think that's what I'll do.Petra from Germany
@Petra: You crack me up. LOL. Come sit next to me.T
Wow...Most of these "inspired" designsare very obvious!For the Escapade suit - at least a color change would have indicated a more subtle K.O.!;)lolVin
Inspired.. stolen.. I keep wondering why if Jason is/was the FR designer, he isn't inspired to dress his line of dolls in originals.But then.. there is a lot of this stuff going on.. the Jaimie Show shoes "inspired by GaGa & Alexander McQueen".. A.M. designed them and left all of that stuff to her. I'm sure the cheque is in the mail. LOL.J.
I really don't get why doll collectors defend this practice. I find it doubly offensive when Tonner and Wu do it as they were/are both professional FASHION designers. They should be held to a higher standard. Inspiration is one thing but those literally recreate exact "Reproductions" in miniature. Color, Fit, Everything.If they are that stretched that theft is the only option they maybe they should cut back some.
I would have liked the black Fr2 fashion better in eggplant, I am tired of black fR clothing and worrying about leaving it on my dolls for fear of staining.
Im sorry, but isnt Jason Wu a designer himself? He has to "borrow" from other disigners? Integrity, I have to ask, Do you have integrity?
