KahriAnne Kerr, who is the creator of these dolls, is a fashion designer by trade and is known for her hip, funky, rocker chic women’s contemporary clothing line. Her products are sold in over 20 boutiques across the US, England, Scotland, Austria, Spain and Israel, as well as 30 online boutiques. Kahri decided to start producing the dolls as a fun sideline to her already successful designer clothing business.
I caught up with Kahri who agreed to a little Q and A! Enjoy!
1) How long have you been making dolls?
I started making the dolls this past June.
2) What prompted you to start making iconic tastemaker dolls?
I’m not sure where I got the idea to make the illustrations into dolls.
3) Do you make custom dolls? What is the process and
how expensive is it?
Yes, I make custom illustrations and dolls. You can order
them on my website KAHR.com
for $100. Just email me a
picture of who you’d like the illustration/doll to be made of. It
takes about 3-4 weeks. There isn’t a minimum.
4) Have you ever thought about making wall paper
from of a mix of the doll designs?
No, but maybe I will now!
5) Do you sell prints?
Yes, I sell some prints at my society6.com
store. I also have
some original artwork available on my site KAHRI.com
6) Has anyone famous bought their own doll?
Yes! Lynn Yaeger bought the Lynn Yaeger doll and
Bill Cunningham and Iris Apfel both have their dolls.
7) What is your best selling doll?
The Karl Lagerfeld doll!
