The dolls of Yana Ray not only let girls hearts beat higher...

Technology used to be the profession of ​​Yana Ray, who grew up 800km west of Moscow. The designer was an aircraft engineer at that time. Meanwhile, she prefers to create fashion and handmade dolls. Following the desire for creative work she moved to Switzerland, where she studied design and art at Basel University.

Yana Ray has been designing extraordinarily dolls in large and small sizes since 2015. Among them are celebrity stars, legendary figures or simply refined styled unique pieces.

At the exhibition she will show her entire work, from fashion dolls with glasses over huge doll faces.
