Your'e never too old for Monster High.
People always seem to think that dolls are just for children, but ever since I was a young girl I drew inspiration from playing with dolls. I would dress them up constantly and set up scenarios all the time. I obviously don't do this anymore, but dolls are still appealing to me. One of my obsessions is Monster High. Basically they are undead Bratz Dollz, but with more detail and intricacy. The one thing I noticed about how the way the dolls were designed was that they were heavily influenced by today's fashion. Mattel's popular brand, Barbie is not as relevant to fashion as the Monster High dolls are. Sorry, but tutus and bows don't make my skirt blow anymore. All of the dolls are personified with their own sense of style and none of the characters are knock offs of one another. I collect a few from time to time for inspiration and decoration and I don't see the issue of why people think that I am too old to be collecting dolls. Check out some of the dolls and you'll see why.
Hello, Kittens! My name is KIKA. I am 21 years old. A recent graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology. And I have officially become a Free Lance Fashion Designer. Like many designers, I see the world through various perspectives and I am greatly inspired by many things. Other than the trends and the history of fashion, I fancy video games, art and cutesy stuff that brings me back to a nostalgic era where looking through rose colored glasses was my motto of life. I am working on developing my brand to make it as close to how I want it to be in my dreams.
I design for women who aren’t afraid of their style or personality. A woman should be proud of where she came from, but who she is now. I am obsessed with color and subtlety and minimalism is just not me. Maybe for others, but I believe you can walk into a room and bring attention to others with out saying a thing. The social butterfly, the dinner party enthusiast and museum aficionado are the kind of women I am inspired by.
I do custom garments for any occasion. Please email me at Designsbykika@gmail.com for any requests or inquiries.
