Top Designers’ Illustrations dress ‘The Wizard of Oz’ ladies
The Wizard of Oz gets a resurgence in popularity with the spotlight firmly focussed on a special fashion collaboration told through these fabulous illustrations. Warner Bros. Consumer Products and “The Wizard of Oz” have teamed with Tonner Doll Collection and a host of fashion and costume designers on one-of-a-kind dolls dressed in various interpretations of Dorothy, Glinda and the Wicked Witch of the West.
The Wicked Witch reimagined by Jenny Packham
To mark the classic film’s 75th anniversary and its “There’s No Place Like Home” initiative for Habitat for Humanity, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Jenny Packham, Trina Turk, Chris Benz, BCBG, Hervé Leger, Carmen Marc Valvo and “Scandal” costume designer Lyn Paolo and the show’s star Kerry Washington have reimagined costumes for the 22-inch dolls. Their miniature couture creations will debut during New York Fashion Week at the Fashion Institute of Technology on Sept. 4, after which they will be auctioned on eBay to benefit Habitat for Humanity.
