Jacqueline, the doll, was the perfect complement for the Alexander Doll Company. Taking the concept of the adult fashion doll to the next level, Jacqueline had both the manufacturing technology and fashion working for her in this success story in the making. Calling the doll Jacqueline, just short of inferring that this is actually the First Lady of the United States, was not the same as acquiring a licensing agreement. As beautifully as the doll was conceived, introducing for the company their newly developed vinyl mold and rooted hair on a fashion doll – there would be a price to pay for rolling the dice and hoping the White House would not notice. The clothes for the Jacqueline were beautiful, capturing the essence of Oleg Cassini minimal design and line with beautiful fabrics and trims. Mid season 1962, the letter from the White House arrived and the Alexander Doll Company’s Jacqueline was retired to avoid legal proceedings. Many of these Jacqueline’s acquired a new name and were reassigned a new persona. Jacqueline is featured in my article for the June issue of the MADC the Review.
