Another review from Suresh


Another generous review from one of the loveliest, kindest people in the doll world, Suresh. He did a lovely review of an Ash blonde Anouk from series 4, wearing Dîner pour Deux.

ANOUK: Salon de Coiffure sold out!


So here are the Salon de Coiffure dolls. There are three versions: Ash blonde, Brunette, and Sun-tan blonde. Each doll comes with a booklet, vanity set, 2 hair pieces, and a full wig.

They were designed around a Mondrian mod theme. You can view the promo film here:

These dolls sold out extremely fast. In fact the fastest selling Anouk release to date. I was rather unprepared for that. Consequently, there was a lot of dissapointment among Anouk collectors, who were unable to secure one. Therefore, I promise to create another Salon de Coiffure doll next year.

Anouk: Valley of the dolls


My latest commission was to make an Anouk inspired by the character Barbara Pakins played, Anne Welles in the film  "Valley of the Dolls". There is a sequence where Anne becomes "The Gillian girl" model.
She sports various looks, and the beaded caftan with high fashion hairstyle,was the look my client wanted.

Interview about Anouk

I was kindly interviewed by Georgette Taylor and Tammy Teen from In the doll world. They have been interviewing various people in the doll collecting community.
My interview with them is now live on their website. Do have a listen if you are interested in how Anouk was conceived and developed:

Anouk as Elizabeth Taylor


So another commission I received was to do Anouk as Elizabeth Taylor. The client wanted a young Liz as she appeared in the film classic "A place in the sun".
The stunning recreation of her gown is by my long term collaborator Rosina Haskell.

I cut and styled Anouk's hair, and repainted her eyes to a violet colour, framed with dense black eyelashes, and Elizabeth Taylor's Cupid's bow lips in a vivid red.
The client was delighted with her.
