www.inthedollworld.com/creators We get to have a wonderful conversation with Doug James, another amazing pioneer in doll history. From Doug's entrance into the doll world as a doll fashion designer. He and his friend Laura Meisner created clothing for Mel Odom's Gene Marshall doll and for Madame Alexander dolls. To his being credited and earning the honor with his friend Laura with articulating the modern fashion doll through the C.E.D. Though vintage dolls had previously been articulated and other doll artist had articulated dolls at places like the neck, shoulders, hips, and knees, Doug and Laura were the first to do a more complete articulation on modern fashion dolls. He articulated the bicep, elbow, wrist, and torso making them the first to do a more complete articulation on modern fashion dolls with the C.E.D Dolls.
