A Very Virtuous Girl


With one look at Nav Sikand's pretty Anouk in her "Series Three" iteration, one could easily conclude that she is an unequivocal representation of virtuous innocence. Yet, to enlighten our understanding and eliminate these superficial perceptions, Dolldom went right to the source - the doll maker himself.

Dolldom: Is Anouk a metaphor for purity and goodness?

Mr. Sikand: Anouk is full of optimism for the future with her life and many adventures ahead of her. I feel that in these turbulent and dark times we live in, there is something very important and appealing about things that remind us of a simpler and relatively easier time of life. I try to project this positivity through Anouk and the context in which I present her. I wish Anouk to be a symbol of simpler and more hopeful times. This said, "Series Three" features some changes that make Anouk different. The major change is her mouth, which is a much darker and vivid fuchsia pink and a Bardot-esque pout, which gives Anouk a slightly sultry look. Still, she remains a charming gamine.
