Life Sized Friends

  • Katherine's Collection Eula DF762

    While some of Wayne Kleski's designs may take years to perfect, others are complete after one night. Once he’s fully-drafted an idea, it takes Kleski about three months to produce doll prototypes, and an additional six months for production. Once the costume is drawn and fabrics are plugged, the seamstress brings the doll to life. Lastly, Kleski personally reviews every cut, seam, and trimming to ensure that his design has been accurately translated. “If you look at my dolls, you will see a passion and love in each and every one.

    Each one-of-a-kind piece has a special sparkle in their eye from being hand-painted. Each has a closeness to my heart from the amount of time I spend working to make it the best I can.” The final step is to send the doll to the factory to be produced. Kleski spends about six months out of the year visiting his factories to produce dolls as close to the exact reproductions of original pieces as possible. “I am very much a hands-on designer. I personally visit the local fabric factories to select the fabrics and trims and work to teach the production staff each of the new sewing techniques and design styles.”

    This lady may be shipped in her original box which I saved. She is dressed in her best lunch-with-the girls outfit.

    Shipping will run $50. If the actual amount is less, we will credit your card for the difference. If it's more...my treat. Her stand is included. SIGNATURE REQUIRED ON DELIVERY

    This lady may be shipped in her original box which I saved. She chose to wear a coordinated outfit that probably fit her a few years ago. It's a little snug across the tummy area. But who amongst us can fault her for that?

    Shipping will run $50. Her stand is included. SIGNATURE REQUIRED ON DELIVERY BY FEDEX.
