Haute Couture Designers Shrink Down Their Signature Looks For UNICEF [Pics]
Over 40 fashion houses and designers created dolls for the Frimousses de Createurs initiative.
The participating fashion houses, designers, and artists include Chanel, Dior, Lanvin, PRADA, Jean Paul Gaultier, first-time participants Alexis Mabille and Anne Valérie Hash, and more. A total of 93 pieces were created this year. Each doll reflected the signature aesthetics and style of the designer and artist who created them.
The dolls were on display at the Petit Palais from November 26th to December 1st, and will be auctioned off December 2nd at the Four Seasons Hotel Georges V. The reserve price for a doll is around 500 Euros and proceeds will help vaccinate children in the Darfur region of Sudan.
The Frimousses de Createurs initiative was started in 2003 and is held every year. The initiative benefits UNICEF’s vaccination campaigns.
