The fashions were sketched in the 1960's by my brother-in-law's father, Stephen Moor, who gave me his pack of about 80 hand painted fashion sketches when his son was engaged to my sister. He wanted to encourage me to enter into doing fashion, and said I could use his fashions.
I knew these fashions were important, and so I kept them together. No one besides the family had ever seen this collection of fashions, even though Stephen Moor was a famous Australian artist in his lifetime. He said to me that though he'd had a wonderful career in art, he'd always been a frustrated fashion designer. Unfortunately he passed, before they'd be seen.
When it came to me doing my first line of the GlamourOZ Dolls, I wanted to honour his secret contribution to Australian fashion, and to honour his encouragement of my own art, by having his fashions grace my dolls in their first line. My brother-in-law and sister are excitedly supportive to see Stephen Moor's 60's fashions published and shared in this way to not only show his fashion sketches (on the box art illustration), but also finally seeing them brought into reality, as couture miniatures on my GlamourOZ Dolls.
