Popovy Sisters: Holiday Editions with Michael Costello
Fashion and art come together like never before as fashion designer Michael Costello and award-winning doll makers the Popovy Sisters launch their limited edition photographs of one-of-a-kind dolls with Costello-designed dollsized gowns.
When asked about the collaboration, Michael Costello had this to say: “I first discovered the Popovy Sisters years ago on Instagram. It was late at night, around 2 AM, and I was scrolling through my feed because I couldn’t sleep. When I saw the Popovy Sisters’ dolls, I was instantly captured [by] the dark, twisted, fantasies of the dolls! After seeing that the dolls have done a few collaborations with other high fashion designers, I knew that one day, I wanted to work with them!”
“As a designer, I am constantly inspired by art. These dolls are so captivating and each seem to exude a different personality that is so life-like! My inspiration for the collection was a magical “Michael Costello” fantasy surrounding “A Day In the Life of the Popovy Dolls”. I wanted the dolls to come to life, wearing Michael Costello Couture. As soon as we debut the Michael Costello pieces on the Popovy Dolls, I know many fashion fans will be asking if we would be reproducing the dresses human size. I’m open to doing some. Others, of course, are made exclusively for the dolls.”
