The doll-inspired fashion garments of the Lou Dallas Ready-to-Wear Fall 2018 line are a tribute to a lost childhood. Boasting a porcelain doll aesthetic through minimalist makeup, exuberantly rouge cheeks and colorfully embroidered dresses with thigh high socks and ballerina-inspired footwear, the Lou Dallas couture collection communicates a nostalgic feeling to the audience.
As the Fall 2018 collection progresses, the doll-inspired fashion designs begin to categorize themselves. On one hand, they maintain the porcelain doll appearance, while also introducing a familiar play component of dress-up games that consist of layering and combining otherwise mismatching materials. On the other hand, the RTW doll-inspired fashion line moves toward a fairy-like aesthetic with otherworldly silhouettes, plump red lips and pixie haircuts.
