Jian Yang is an avid Barbie doll collector who happens to be quite talented in designing and creating fancy dresses for his Barbie dolls.
A self-confessed “toy nerd,” the 38-year-old collector from Singapore has been building his collection since he was a teenager. With over 6,000 Barbie dolls (plus thousands of other assorted dolls and action figures), Yang is known as one of the world’s biggest Barbie collectors.
While his doll collection is indeed a marvel in itself, the stylish clothes he crafts for the dolls are equally astonishing. What makes these well-made dresses even more special is that they are meticulously crafted from unique materials.
Instead of fabric, Yang makes use of table napkins and toilet paper, resulting in uniquely beautiful creations.

In an interview with MailOnline back in 2013, Yang revealed that being a guy with a doll obsession has its own quirks.
“I’m very into collections, I’m very into amassing,” Yang was quoted as saying. “I’ve also got the ex-girlfriends who get insecure about this kind of stuff … They look at dolls and go ‘OK, that’s the competition’, which is quite troubling but it’s a reality.”
