Back

Lynn Cartwright’s career in fashion design, spanning more than four decades, accidentally led to her second career in doll making. In the world of fashion design Cartwright made innovative strides in activewear, swimwear, lifestyle sportswear, athletic footwear, and uniforms. Her warmhearted textile prints revolutionized nurses’ scrubs in the 1990s. Designing the US gymnastics team’s Olympic uniforms (1984, 1988) was Cartwright’s most prestigious undertaking; recall Mary Lou Retton! Doll making is the perfect reflection of Cartwright’s autobiography, combining fashion design, art, and travel experiences. She has won six DOTY (Doll of the Year) Industry Awards, the DOTY Public Award, two Diamond Industry Awards of Excellence, five Apex Award nominations, and other accolades.
