I bet when Eileen Lam started telling stories through her extensive doll collection, she never at any moment thought that dolly treasures would become such a huge internet success with a cult following of die hard fans including 60 thousand followers on Instagram. Such is the the success of dolly treasures that Eileen Lam has produced a second photography book ‘little Mischiefs’ which tells stories inspired by the world around her including her childhood memories, memories of her children growing up, and even through seeing other people.
Eileen first brought the Blythe dolls to life through Instagram in 2013 and they’ve been a daily part of her life since then. “I suppose it’s like keeping a diary of my life and this is one of the reasons they are so important to me.”, Says Eileen. It was the appreciation of Eileen’s photographs which inspired her to collaborate with her daughter Bernadette to publish the first Dolly Treasures book, ‘The Little Mischiefs’.
I attended the book launch in the Dome suite at luxury hotel one Aldwych in central London attended by many influential people from the worlds of fashion, art and entertainment who got up close and personal with Eileen Lam’s little mischiefs who were still up to no good being naughty in every corner of the the ultra chic hotel suite which had been transformed into a fairy tale magical space by the very creative KML Events UK LTD team.
To celebrate the launch of‘The Little Mischiefs’ book, Eileen Lam donated donated 1030 books to Nelson Mandela Children’s fund UK as well as 800 copies which will help to raise funds for Lucy Air Ambulance for Children which is a registered Charity dedicated to delivering air transport service for seriously ill babies and children up to the age of 16 in the UK.
