What is a Blythe doll?

Blythe Dolls was born in the United States in 1972. At that time, in the anti-war tide in the United States, a hippie party pursuing peace and advocating natural dressing was born, and with the promotion of television programs, a "Big Eye" was launched. Art heatwaves and these indirectly promote the birth of the Blythe series of dolls. Blythe's initial sales were very bad. Although her market position is for children's dolls, her special face made her not loved by people - eyes and heads are too big, even a little scary, and nobody, so Things that are too avant-garde are unacceptable for a while. In just one year, Blythe was forced to stop production.

Just as she was gradually forgotten, Gina Garan, a well-known fashion photographer in the American fashion world, saved her. Known as "Mother of Blythe", Gina is a loyal fan. As a fan of the doll collection, she has more than 2,000 dolls in her collection. One day her friend said to her: "I think you look a lot like Blythe!" So, driven by curiosity, she bought her first piece of cloth from the internet. Since then, she has been out of control, Gina's love for Blythe Dolls has grown by leaps and bounds, and now she has collected more than 200 small cloths. She often took the little cloth around her, traveled all over the world, and took a variety of style photos. In 2000, Gina held a personal photo exhibition of small cloth and published a photo album called "This Is Blythe", which made people re-recognize the small cloth. Once this album was published, the original four-style, unpopular cloth had changed dramatically. The cloth not only became the vane of all kinds of fashion trends but also established her special "change sense". The unique image creates a brand new “super fashion beauty type”.

Gina introduced her paintings to Junko, the producer of Japanese CWC, and blew her way to Japan through her referral Blythe. Later, when Gina filmed a brochure for the Japanese department store Parco, the Japanese toy company Takara launched the first album called "Parco Limited" Blythe, and the status of the cloth finally reached an unprecedented height. Today, Blythe dolls have been launched in 37 models, and they are favored by many of the world's top boutique brands, and they have produced the brand-name "Blythe version of custom-made clothing" for her. With the popularity of Blythe in Japan, the popular street brands in Japan have joined this trend in recent years, once again opening a broader "gate of change" for Blythe dolls. In this way, the small cloth not only came back to life, but also became a doll that was expensive, extremely fast, and crazy around the world.
