FASHION-FORWARD LOOKS FOR KARMA’S WORLD DOLLS
Through a project in the DTech Lab, Fashion Design students and recent grads designed colorful streetwear for Karma’s World, an animated series based on a concept by multi-hyphenate rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges. Six of the looks are in a collection of Karma’s World dolls, created by Mattel and released in August 2022. Additionally, the designs eventually may be produced as children’s wear and footwear.
To create the outfits, the students were assisted by Sarah Mullins, chair of Footwear and Accessories Design; Gregg Woodcock, adjunct instructor of Footwear and Accessories Design; and Lauren Zodel, assistant professor of Fashion Design. Brandice Daniel ’12, founder of Harlem’s Fashion Row, also advised the students and served as a fashion consultant for the TV series.
