Mini Moodboard: Paper Dolls

Paper dolls with clothing sets have been around since the 18th-century and have been used for both toys and advertising. Long before that, approx. 800 AD, paper kimono figurines were constructed of Japanese origami. Today, this art form continues to be an inspiration for both fashion designers and illustrators alike.
