Alice Mary Lynch is a Doll Maker and Fashion Designer. She grew up in Somerset with artist parents, Kate and James Lynch. After training in Fashion Design at Kingston University, she travelled to Paris where she worked as a designer for Sonia Rykiel, John Galliano and Christian Dior, honing her craft of beading embroidery and embellishment in their studios.
After having children, she decided to concentrate on making her dolls which are inspired by dreams, cabaret sparkle and the strangeness of nature.
‘Armoured with glass beads, crystals and talismen, they are glittering little warriors, watching out for us in the real world.’
Alice has made masks and costumes for music videos and short films, she has exhibited in boutiques and galleries in London, Paris and Somerset and undertaken commissions for designers and private patrons worldwide. Recent clients include Anya Hindmarch, Alice Temperley, Marwood and Victoria Beckham.
After nine years in Paris, Alice has just moved back to England and is now based in Somerset where she lives with her Japanese fly fishing husband and their two children.
