Designer Matryoshka Dolls

To celebrate Russian Vogue’s 10th anniversary, 31 of the fashion industry’s most well-respected designers were asked to design a dress for a traditional Russian matrioshka doll. The designer labels who lend their creativity included Yves Saint Laurent, Martin Margiela, Dolce & Gabbana, Matthew Williamson, Stella McCartney, Christopher Bailey Giles Deacon, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, Ralph Lauren, and Miuccia Prada.

The designers’ doll sketches were brought to life by Russian craftsmen who hand-painted the 50 centimeter dolls. The one-of-a-kind dolls, each reflecting a different designers aesthetic, will be auctioned for charity at a gala event in Moscow on November 20th.
