Once for the New Year my friend Olesya presented me a Christmas toy, handmade by her daughter. It was a snowman about 10cm tall, very nice, elegant, made of paperclay - gypsum. And suddenly I had an idea: "Why don’t we create a collection of toys on the history of the 20th century costume?" Olesya really liked the idea. We chose the images from different years, one of 20ies, 30ies, 40ies, 50ies, 70ies, 60ies, and 80ies. They were dresses without authors characterizing the given years. The collection was not very big. Exactly then I got the idea of making the toys in the form of the famous dresses of famous designers, and the first was the legendary dress from the collection of New Look '47 by Christian Dior. Olesya was a very enthusiastic person and became interested in fashion history. History of fashion inspired her, and this time Olesya brilliantly coped with the creation of this collection without my initiative. Together we studied the history of different designers and chose the most prominent in our opinion and Olesya created a toy, a very fine, detailed miniature copy of fashion masterpieces painted by hand. Toys by Olesya are real works of art. I am very proud of my fortunate being in a creative alliance with a brilliant, broad artist and being the owner of this priceless collection. Unfortunately, Olesya's no longer with us, but the collection created by her will always inspire the search for new original ideas.
And so, I have the honor to bring to your attention the collection of Christmas toys on the history of the 20th century costume. See over!
