Welcome to the Haute Hero studios! I’ve been meaning to create this blog post for a long time now due to the growing interest in designer toys, one sixth scale figures, and ball jointed dolls. In this post I will break down my home studio and provide 3 helpful tips to start your own.
Smart Doll is a line of ball jointed dolls (BJD) created by Japanese based blogger Danny Choo. Danny Choo is known for Culture Japan; a lifestyle blog that chronicles Japanese and Anime culture for enthusiasts that live outside the country. The company's mascot, Mirai, is the flag ship doll as well as welcome ambassador to Japan and Malaysia. Haute Hero participated in Danny Choo's developer project to create streetwear inspired apparel for his latest doll Eiji Seiun.
Before Haute Hero I was a fashion designer specializing in menswear. When Haute Hero launched I was committed to applying a similar design process to my one of a kind collections. That process usually begins with inspiration from Japanese fashion magazines such as HUGE.
