To mark the 75th anniversary of the timeless American classic ‘The Wizard of Oz’, the Warner Bros. Consumer Products and the US-based Tonner Doll Company have come together to give a contemporary sartorial twist to all the female characters of the 1939 movie.
 
According to WWD, several leading names from the fashion industry have been roped in to create dresses for an eclectic collection of 22-inch dolls, which have been created based on the looks of the female leads, such as Dorothy, Glinda and the Wicked Witch. 
 
Famous designers like Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, BCBG Max Azria, Hervé Leger and Carmen Marc Valvo will create an array of miniature dresses, slated to be unveiled during the upcoming New York Fashion Week (NYFW) at the Fashion Institute of Technology on September 4, 2014.
 
For Dorothy’s character, designer Chris Benz has crafted a blue gingham windswept outfit, inspired from the windy weather of New York, and fashion talent Trina Turk has recreated the gingham pinafore into a peplum jumpsuit adorned with rainbow patch to complement the protagonist’s trademark ruby slippers.
 
Clothing label Jenny Packham has designed a high-fashioned, modern innovative dress for the Wicked Witch and the hit television series Scandal’s costumer Lyn Paolo and star Kerry Washington have designed an eclectic ball gown for the broom riding menace.
 
In addition to the above mentioned names, Reem Acra, Erickson Beamon, Sue Wong, Carlos Falchi, Douglas Hannant, Betsey Johnson, Byron Lars, Charlotte Ronson, Anna Sui, Colleen Atwood and Ruth Myers will also be a part of the collaborative venture.
 
After its NYFW display, the doll collection will be later auctioned on eBay and the proceeds from the sale will benefit the international non-profit organization Habitat for Humanity, which is devoted to build simple, decent and affordable housing for poverty-stricken people.
