Leave it to Robert Tonner to track down one of the most important collections of couture in the world, even if it’s located in the far-flung Maryhill Museum of Art in Oregon. Leave it to Robert Tonner to bring to life this collection in the form of fashionable dolls. Leave it to Robert Tonner to do it right, too. After WWII, Parisian couturiers created an exhibition of exquisitely costumed miniature mannequins to showcase their finest creations. They named their exhibition Theatre de la Mode and the signal doll of the collection, for many, was Soir de Fete, re-created today by Robert Tonner. The Soir de Fete fashion doll has an extraordinary coiffure of two-toned red and strawberry blonde hair and wears a black crepe gown with pink and blue satin ribbons, bronze needlework accents and applied cabochons. With beautifully painted face, the art quality vinyl doll also features bending arms. 17".
