This spring, we are delighted to spotlight one of our talented, Chicagoland fashion designers who specializes in exquisite apparel for baby dolls: Victoria Jordan. Having graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Chicago, Victoria’s experience in the apparel industry has ranged from fashion illustration and product design to textile design and photography. She is best known for her whimsical infant clothing designs and fun illustrated baby print patterns.
She shares her inspiration for designing doll clothing and accessories, saying that “I have always had a passion for children’s clothing design and toys. What I love the most is the endless opportunity for creativity as well as seeing my ideas turn into something that brings joy to families around the world!”
Over the years, Victoria has honed her skills and craft in this niche that is both trendy and timeless. We have highlighted two of her current collections below, which are brimming with precious baby doll dresses and beyond. Pastels in lavender (Picture Perfect) and periwinkle (Teatime) will remind you of spring childhood dresses and spotting spring bulbs of the same colors sprouting from the thawing ground outdoors. Inspired by the sweet love a mother feels toward her baby girl, Pine-Apple of My Eye provides pattern play with pineapples and hearts combined on a short-sleeve dress encircled with a hot-pink ribbon bow.
Adorable animals at sleep and play grace outfits and remind us of fun-filled trips to the zoo with strollers and laugh-filled interactions at the glass window of exhibits. Tailored trims of lace and many more fabrics coordinate all pieces of each matching ensemble. Fruits to furry friends. Shiny sequins to plain polka dots. Bows to blooming flowers. Each custom-designed print from Victoria Jordan inspires the imagination to feel joy in the present and shine bright for the future.
Her Best Dressed Collection, available exclusively from Ashton-Drake, includes chic, luxurious dresses with refined accessories that are tailored to fit dolls between 17” to 19” tall.
