Doll company Tonner-One World is teaming up with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products to develop a line of dolls inspired by TV series Empire.
As part of the two-year licensing agreement, the firm will create dolls based on characters from the series, including Cookie Lyon and Lucious Lyon.
Lead designers Robert Tonner and Stacey McBride-Irby will be responsible for developing the line, which is slated for release during season three of the show.
“We are thrilled to be designing a collection based on Empire, a show that has redefined fashion on television,” said Tonner.
“Our beautifully-crafted dolls will immortalise the show’s popular characters, fully embracing the exquisite style esthetic the show brings to the small screen.”
Corinda Joanne Melton, CEO of One World Holdings, added: “It’s a privilege to be aligning our company with Empire, a show whose cultural influence continues to shape modern television.
“This deal with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products represents a major step for Tonner-One World, as we continue to expand our brand.”
