1961 was an important turning point in the world of haute-couture. French couturiers were still the center of the Fashion World but it wouldn’t be long before the radical shake-ups of the 1960s would revolutionize the World of Fashion with a new found freedom.
During the Mid-Century, Paris had its shining stars in fashion and NiniMomo wanted to pay homage to three Haute-Couture Houses that the eyes of the Fashion World were glued to: the Houses of Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy and Cristobel Balenciaga. These three designers epitomized luxury, elegance and originality of the time and made a tremendous mark in the World of Couture Fashion.
NiniMomo has chosen three looks from these masters of glamorous design and have replicated them for our favorite doll. Each stunning couture Diva features custom rooted lashes and facial repaint. As with all NIniMomos, our quintessential hand-sewn beadwork bedecks each beauty along with a multitude of genuine Swarovski crystal rhinestones.
