Miss Lachasse


No, this is not a vintage Barbie doll. But a 1954 doll named ‘Miss Lachasse.’ She was created to look like popular model Virginia Woodford (below) and toured as part of an exhibit to raise money for the Greater London Fund. All the clothing pictured (including the smallest known nylons) are examples of what a typical couture client would have in her closet!


Miss Lachasse was currently part of another exhibit– ‘The Golden Age Of Couture, Paris & London 1947-1957’ held last year at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
