Bryan, 33, revealed her collection of black dolls via her social media sites in November 2015. The dolls have since gone viral and has become very popular on social media. The international model hails from the small community of La Pointe, Mon Repos but also lived in Vieux Fort. According to her, it has always been her dream to create her own doll collection. “My inspiration to start the Malaville Debut Collection dolls came because as a doll collector I found it very hard to find different black dolls with ethnic hair to add to my collection. And I realized I was not the only one having that issue but other adult collectors and parents wanting to add diversity to their children’s doll collection. So I started the collection with 4 different brown skin tones dolls, the next collection I will add different tones,” she said. Bryan says her dolls are unique because she designed them from scratch.

“I chose the eye shapes, skin color, their features I designed them all. I made them also with little to no makeup because I wanted their natural beauty to stand out.” The excited model and doll creator told Daily News that the dolls are not just for children. In fact, she says, some of her creations are also tailored to suit adults who love to collect dolls.
