Liverpool Fashion Design - Dolls

Designer Kirsty Doyle is on the look out for new fashion talent of all ages in Liverpool.
The designer, who has created clothes for Coleen Rooney, is joining up with the Museum of Liverpool for the display Made Up: The Liverpool Look.

Budding designers are being asked to submit doll sized fashion designs which reflect the trends and styles of Liverpool people.

Kirsty Doyle will be hosting two design workshops as part of the project.
The fashion designs will be on display in the Museum of Liverpool when it opens in the summer.

Lizzy Rodgers, curator of community content for the Museum of Liverpool said, "We had the quirky idea of showcasing designs by asking applicants to create outfits for fashion dolls, based on a particular Liverpool style, 'style tribes' or replicas of outfits they've seen on the streets of the city."

Liverpool born Kirsty Doyle won Project Catwalk competition in 2005
"The fashion style of Liverpool people is unique and distinct, and we want the local community to play a major part in creating a display which demonstrates personal style, the style of the city and the style of our various fashion exports."
Kirtsy will be hosting the workshops to support people in producing an entry. The sessions will take place from 1000-1600GMT on Sunday 23 and 30 January 2011 at World Museum in Liverpool.

The outfits should be for dolls approximately 30cm in height. The competition is free to enter and will be judged by a panel of local artists, designers and curators.
The deadline for entries is Friday, 4 February 2011.
