My name is Lyn. I am a costume historian by training and a frustrated fashion designer. I've decided that rather than trying to be the next Donna Karan, I would be much happier designing couture-style attire for fashion dolls. Designing for dolls has many advantages: no overhead, low startup costs, no cutthroat competition, and best of all, my clients can't complain! I hold a Master's Degree in Costume Studies and Decorative Arts from New York University. Though I have studied costume from many centuries and civilizations, my favorite styles are the designer fashions of the first half of the Twentieth Century. I have studied costume history at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In addition, I have held an internship at the Museum of Costume in Bath, England, and have lectured on contemporary fashion for the Popular Culture Association's 1994 annual conference. I am also an avid doll collector and fanatic Gene fan!
