Couturier to the stars and famed designer Kenneth D. King brings his Belle Epoque sensibilities to the world of custom doll clothing construction in Doll Couture. Inspired by his viral social media stories of Crazy Bella and her high-fashion friends, Doll Couture showcases King’s one-of-a-kind designs for clothes that fit 11-1/2 inch fashion dolls.

Doll fashion has a long history within the tableau of clothing construction as the first way many people who sew started their sewing journeys. What sewing-crazy kid doesn’t remember creating outfits for a favorite doll? Doll clothing was the entry point for so many, and it remains a craft that speaks to the intricacies of detail work that go into all clothing construction.

The recently renewed interest in doll culture, nostalgic focus on collectibles, and renewed interest in the fiber arts make this the perfect time to step into this space. Guided by King, an expert in couture sewing who threads the needle between the mechanics of garment construction and the visual feast of rich fabrics and design, Doll Couture will be a one-of-a-kind project that both delights and inspires.

Kenneth D. King is a contributing editor at Threads Magazine, couture fashion designer, author and popular professor at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. He specializes in custom evening wear and his designs appear in the permanent collections of leading museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, renowned for its art and design collections.
