LHUILLIER DOWNSIZES FOR A CAUSE: Monique Lhuillier has created a doll-size version of the Manhattan brownstone that houses her New York flagship, complete with miniature dresses and furniture, to be auctioned off at the April 17 Kaleidescope Ball benefitting Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA. “When I was approached about creating a dollhouse, I was in the process of finishing my New York flagship salon. The process was much more intense than I had expected. Working in miniature is a lot more difficult than creating life-size dresses because of the precision involved to make each piece perfect at such a small scale. It took us months, hundreds of hours and a lot of research to complete the house," said the designer, who created one of 10 houses to be auctioned at the Beverly Hills Hotel event. Other designers include Mary McDonald, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Waldo Fernandez, Tim Campbell, Jeffrey Alan Marks and Estee Stanley.
