If you’re a doll lover get ready for some exciting news. Monster High Dolls are the latest creation from Mattel who have just launched a line of dolls that are part of a full entertainment franchise. Monster High Dolls are the teenage offspring of famous monsters but really cool children. They all attend Monster High of course and experience all the teenage awkward moments like trying to fit in and making friends. The Monster High Dolls are refreshingly different which will appeal to many doll lovers.
Monster High Dolls have a touch of weirdness about them but it’s done with humor and lots of style. They all look fabulous and have great fashion sense. Each doll comes with a pet, an accessory, a brush, a stand and a diary with a secret code that can unlock things on the website. The code gives you inside information on new characters, games and activities.

Today a friend from who worked at a Designer Apparel company called me somewhat depressed. His company closed their showroom and he has been out of work for 4 months without any prospects for work. I felt his pain and asked him to join me for lunch so we could figure out his next step. Over lunch I asked him how he was feeling.

When most people think of fashion they think of the runways of Paris or the big designer houses of New York City. Quietly standing in the sidelines and starting to claim its own spot in the limelight is the world of Asian fashion. Whether you know it or not if you like to wear trendy clothes then you are already probably wearing some of todays hottest Asian fashion.

While China is best known for its production capability, there are signs that it is also targeting the broad Asian fashion market. Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia also have the capability to take market share away from western designers.

The styles targeted at the younger set owe a particular debt to the Japanese designers. Pop culture and styles made evident by entertainment stars have popped up throughout Japan
