Synopsis: Hello Paper Dolly! Authorized by the star herself, this new collectible book by David Wolfe features a trio of dolls that capture Carol Channing's sparkling personality, a combination of glamour and comic genius. Eight pages of costumes from many of Miss Channing's most famous roles are ready to cut-out and dress the dolls. Among the twenty carefully researched and meticulously painted outfits in the book are flapper fashions from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Thoroughly Modern Millie plus show stopping turn-of the-century styles from Hello, Dolly! Also included are chic contemporary looks worn by the star in stage and television appearances.
This commemorative paper doll book was produced in conjunction with the Dr. Carol Channing and Harry Kullijian Foundation for the Arts.
About the Author:
As a little boy growing up in Ohio, David was fascinated by his older cousin's collection of movie star paper dolls from the 1940s and '50s. The glamour of fashion and film resonated with the artistic, bookish child and set him on a path that would lead to a highly successful career in the fashion industry.
The paper dolls and coloring books were put aside as David grew up. After graduating, he worked for a small town department store for a few years. Then moved to London when it was the hot spot for swinging '60s style. He became one of Europe's leading fashion illustrators with work appearing in The London Sunday Times, British Vogue and Women s Wear Daily. He produced advertising artwork for fashion stores such as Selfridges and Liberty in London and Galeries Lafayette in Paris.
As the 1970s began, David added another dimension to his creativity when he became one of the world's first fashion trend forecasters. That job took him to front row seats at fashion shows in Milan, Florence, Paris, New York, Los Angeles and even Tokyo. He is today the creative director of The Doneger Group, an important fashion consultancy firm based in New York City. His forecast presentations of incoming fashion trends are seen by designers and retailers such as Nordstrom, J.C. Penney, Liz Claiborne, QVC, The Fashion Institute of Technology and many fashion clubs and organizations. Today David Wolfe is considered an international authority of renown, the most widely quoted personality in fashion.
Paper dolls came back into David's life a few years ago when he discovered the community of collectors and artists dedicated to keeping alive the passion that he had as a child. He is a managing editor of Paper Doll Studio for the Original Paper Doll Artists Guild, and a regular contributor to the specialty magazine, Paperdoll Review. Having ended his career as a fashion illustrator long ago, David is happy that paper dolls allow him to again create glamorous artwork. His recognizable style is a very deliberate re-creation of the lush, lavish technique employed by artists during the 1940s and '50s, the golden years of paper dolls.
Other paper dolls by David include Marlene Dietrich, Doris Day, Donna Reed, Debbie Reynolds, Phyllis Diller, Patti Page, Phyllis McGuire, TV Moms of the 1950s, Hollywood Style of the 30s-50s, Hollywood Style of the 60s-80s, Hollywood Confections, Adrian: Hollywood Fashion Designer and Grease Paper Dolls.
