In celebration of the classic film The Wizard of Oz's 75th anniversary, as well as Warner Bros' 'There's No Place Like Home' initiative for non-profit organisation Habitat for Humanity, designers such as Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Jenny Packham, Trina Turk, Chris Benz, BCBG, Hervé Leger, Carmen Marc Valvo and Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo have been enlisted to create costumes for a set of 22-inch dolls.

The designs will debut during New York Fashion Week at the Fashion Institute of Technology on September 4 this year, after which they will be auctioned on eBay to benefit Habitat for Humanity. 

"To me, Dorothy is one of the few iconic heartland American girls in the movies, so having the opportunity to reenvision her style was exciting," said Chris Benz. "We were thinking about tornados and how when it's windy in New York a piece of newspaper will just fly up in your face and how hilarious it would be to have that silhouette in blue gingham," he has said of his windswept design. 


Jenny Packham, however, looked towards the Wicked Witch for her creativity... Taking a somewhat non-traditional route. "Our witch is wicked in a contemporary, avant-garde way. We've used a print from one of my favourite collections to create a modern and fashionable witch," she has said of her design.
