Fashion designer Brani Mladenov's self-portrait
Brani is big fan of the designs of Anna Sui and of the endless imagination of Robert Best. Sonia Rykiel is an inspiration too as well as Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier. In addition to Barbie, Brani enjoys Blythe's style, Mod couture, Fashion Royalty’s slick look, and Darrell Wallace's handmade and hand painted resin dolls.
Brani follows a feeling when he begins to design. This collection titled Vin et Pain evokes the warm feelings of two essential staples of mankind's nourishment: bread and wine. Essential, yes. And equally luxurious. For this Dolldom exclusive feature, Barbie Basics and Barbie Fashion Model Collection models regally show off the exquisite creations of this talented young designer. Barbie and Dolldom love you, Brani.
