As the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress goes on display at Buckingham Palace, Harumika is offering a Bridal Collection of its own to promote this summer.
The wedding and bridesmaid set has just been launched for girls to try their hand at designing dresses fit for a princess. Using the wrap and tuck technique, girls can create bridal dresses using the two dress forms and then accessorise with flowers, veils and jewels. Each set comes with a number of satin and lace fabrics and a fold out dressing room scene.
On a different theme, children can also make ball gowns with the new Evening Gown Set. The luxury pack includes one dress form and two differently shaped clip-on corset skirt attachments that allow girls to create floor-length dresses. It also contains five pieces of velvet, satin, lace and glittery fabric, along with belt accessories and gem stickers to accessories.
Another new addition to the Harumika range this summer is the Mannequin Collection, where designers can use their skills to wrap materials around the body and also tuck into the arms and legs to make jackets and trousers.
Girls can then style the mannequin’s hair, add a pair of chic shoes and place their finished masterpiece on the display stand. Additional outfit and material packs are also being introduced to give girls even more choice when designing their mannequin’s wardrobe.
Product manager, Vicki Elmer, commented: "Harumika fans will love these classy new sets and the challenges of making more sophisticated and detailed clothing.
"Bandai will be supporting all new launches with TV advertising throughout the remainder of the year, and we are once again taking Harumika on the road and running demonstrations at this November’s Crafts for Christmas Show at the NEC, Birmingham.
"With Harumika sales growing by more than 800 per cent this year (source: NPD), we are firmly establishing our range within the art and craft category and are constantly working on new ideas to keep our young designers hooked."
