Happy New year to all of you. Here is to a happier healthier 2021.
And lots more in store for our girl Anouk!
Since Covid, like many other things, there's been an impact on Anouk. Essentially series 5 has been significantly delayed. I'd hoped for an autumn release, but that couldn't happen.
Series 5 is going ahead, but release will likely be early next year now.
In the interim, I have produced a sweet mini release for the festive period. A raven, blonde and Titian Anouk in a matching tunic and pants set.
Again these sold out in a matter of hours! I'm very grateful for all the pre orders.
Continue to watch this space for news on series 5.
My latest commission was to have an Anouk based in actress Maggie Cheung in the film In The Mood For Love.
Her look was ultra femenine, with fitted Chinese dresses, elegant chignons, and stylish accessories.
I collaborated in this doll with Dal Lowenbein, who created the beautifully tailored dress, and purse.
I was recently commissioned to make more Alice in Wonderland themed Anouk dolls.
This time I was asked to do Tweedledum and Tweedledee, The Duchess, The Doormouse, and The March Hare.
Again I collaborated with my long term associate Rosina Haskell. We chose to use the more dynamic, swashbuckling persona of the Doormouse from the Tim Burton film.
The client was very happy.😊
My daughter Aanya who has been the face of Anouk from the beginning has officially retired. At age 17 she has decided she's too cool and too old to represent a doll. 🙄
I'm very grateful to my girl, for the memorable images she will leave behind. It's been fun watching Anouk and she, grow together over the years.
I leave you now with some of the ad campaigns that featured Aanya and Anouk over the past 5 years.
My latest Anouk commission is French actress and model Mireille Darc as she appeared in the 1972 film, Le Grand Blond. The iconic sexy black dress is made by Dal Rosario Lowenbein .
Thanks to Véronique Gilbert for a very interesting commission.
