About LaBellaDoll

On Etsy since 2010

La Bella Doll.. the story of the greatest fantasy fashion designer who never lived!

Armenia Arabella loved dolls and learned to sew at an early age. Growing up in rural Italy, Armenia made costumes for herself and her dolls and played all day in a fantasy world. Armenia went to art school in Spain, but dropped out due to an attraction with a young man who asked her to travel with him.
Armenia Arabella’s fashion label “La Bella” was founded in 1985 with the opening of her first atelier in the Via Montenapoleone district of Milan, Italy. Her designs were magnificent, and a close friend of her mother's, socialite Giorgina Riccini, often wore Armenia's designs to parties and night clubs. That connection helped skyrocket her career. She was on her way to fame and fortune, when “Fate” stepped in..
Armenia's career was cut short in 1998 when a tragic car accident in Monte Carlo left her a paraplegic. Worst of all, she lost the love of her life, her fiance Roberto. Her beautiful face was irreparably disfigured, and in her sorrow, she became a recluse. Armenia is rarely seen, but when glimpsed, she is dressed in black and her once lovely face is hidden by the delicate folds of a midnight hued veil.
It was in 1999 that she moved to Canada; the beautiful Okanagan Valley where her mother resides. Here, safe and content in her cliffside villa, she designs gorgeous gowns exclusively for the "almost living" elegant Asian Ball Jointed Dolls. They are so lifelike and ethereal, she feels it is a perfect marriage for her fashion vision, and it allows her to work from home. Now, her devoted staff have set up world wide web networks to sell her exclusive collections. Armenia is known as an eccentric and her fashions are sought after by collectors the world over.

    Simply put, I love dolls, I love sewing. I am an incorrigible dreamer and I dreamt up a story about a fashion designer who now makes clothing for dolls. That's how La Bella Doll was born. I paint pictures for a living and I live my dream life!

Welcome to La Bella Doll.

A place to buy beautiful, well made, unique clothing and accessories for your Ball Jointed Doll. I also make my own art doll figures from time to time, so I have them posted here too. Please enjoy!

Note, these items are not for small children, they are intended for teen and adult doll lovers only.

My models are: a (SD) Luts senior delf 1/3 girl, a (SD) Dollstories 1/3 girl and a Dollmore MSD 1/4 girl. I also do a bit of boy clothing for my Luts 1/3 boy.
I design and make all items myself, using new and vintage fabrics.
There may be slight imperfections in the product, but this is what makes them wonderful and unique. It's called "Wabi-sabi" in Japanese, the beauty of imperfection. They are not made in a soul-less factory.
They are clean and fresh and may have a dog hair or two on them as my little blue heeler Gypsy is my shadow.

All SD items are sized below.
Almost all my items are adjustable to fit a little tighter or looser. Just send me your doll’s measurements if you are unsure.

Shipping
Because of Covid 19 and everything happening in the world right now, all shipping is taking longer than usual. It MAY take up to 3 weeks or even longer for international orders.

I use Canada Post, there is no tracking number available on small items like stockings, however, larger parcels like dress sets will have a tracking number which I will communicate to you.

I do have upgrades available because overseas shipping can take time. If you wish to upgrade please contact me and we can discuss the cost. Customs are the buyers responsibility.

I am unable to take responsibility for the time it takes to deliver your package once it is on the way to your local or international address.

I will send you a shipping notice (usually within 3 days) when I take your item to the post office. After that, I do not have any control.
Additional policies and FAQs
ABSOLUTELY NOT FOR CHILDREN!

All items are very well finished and sturdy for teen and adult collectors. I always use Fray Check where needed and often double seam or serge items as well. My finishing and attention to detail is something I take pride in and I think about the future and seeing my clothes in a museum or antiques roadshow. I want them to be the highest quality and long lasting.

These items are absolutely not for small children. Please never allow small children to play with them. They are artwork and collectors items only, not toys.
