As Kamala Harris delivered her first speech as vice-president-elect last November, the poignance of the moment was translated not just through her words but through her outfit as well. The colour white has long been held as one which represents the fight for women’s suffrage. Her white pantsuit was a nod to suffragists and wearing Carolina Herrera was also significant as the design came from a female immigrant-founded American fashion label.
Island Dolls will host a local display of the doll collection in its entirety – representing Kamala Harris from childhood to the delivery of her acceptance speech last year.

Eyes are on Washington, DC, for the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris. Harris will be sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a history-making event in which the first black, South Asian and female vice-president will take her oath of office from the first Latina justice. To mark the occasion, Island Dolls has added new dolls to its Harris collection, the highlight of which is the doll dressed in the white suit reminiscent of the one Harris wore during her November 7 acceptance speech. Something Extra gives you a first look.
