What makes these Kouklitas (the word koukla, I have learned, is the Greek name for doll) covetable is their meticulous likeness to the latest runway collection looks. Love the McQueen gold feathered high-collar coat but know you'd never have the chance to own it? Fear not, satisfy your fashion fix with a Kouklita doll donned head-to-toe in your favorite McQueen outfit complete with the runway hair and makeup! First time I came across these dolls was earlier this year on Refinery 29, and they have traveled across the ocean to Hong Kong. Yang's latest Kouklitas collection is now on display at Joyce, the Fashion boutique in HK, with each doll dressed up in a different designer's FW10 look in celebration of Yang's first Kouklitas book. I was at the book launch last night to witness the fashion dolls and got to see the doll creator in person.
