paper doll – Vionnet part 2
This is the second paper doll inspired by great 20th century designer Madeleine Vionnet, a front view to complement a back view. One thing that I love about the very tight, detail oriented process of creating paper dolls is how it forces me to focus very closely on the garments. I think about them a lot as I go through the elaborate task of drafting, inking, scanning and colouring. What struck me as I did this is how sensual Vionnet’s work is. The way it responds to the human form instead of forcing a form upon the body it is what gives it such an essential, modern quality.
This paper doll, with her sister, is available as a high-resolution, printable PDF file for $12 USD. Purchase this pair of paper dolls, and you can print them out as many times as you like for personal use – to cut out, play with and display.
