Twenty interior designers have come together to work on ten dollhouses created by Richard Manion and Robert Meiklejohn of Richard Manion Architecture.

The structures are designed to scale in a multitude of styles including Italinate, Georgian, Modern, Contemporary and Brownstone. They feature three levels complete with lighting, wall coverings, custom designed furnishings, fixtures and other home accessories.

The designers who will be transforming the dollhouses include: Natasha Baradaran, Chris Barrett, Joan Behnke, Cari Berg, Tim Campbell, Mark Cutler, Elizabeth Dinkel, Waldo Fernandez, Adam Hunter and Loni Paul, James Magni, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Mary McDonald, Phillip Nimmo, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Alexandra and Michael Misczynski, Estee Stanley, Ron Woodson and Jamie Rummerfield.

Fashion designer Monique Lhuillier is creating a reproduction of her New York City brownstone salon complete with mini-wedding dresses and evening gowns.

A number of the houses will feature landscaped exteriors designed by both Stephen Block of Inner Gardens and Christine London Ltd.

The ultimate designer Dollhouse Showcase and preview party will raise funds to benefit the UCLA Children’s Discovery and Innovation Institute at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA.

The ball will take place on April 17 at 6:00 p.m. at the Beverly Hills Hotel to celebrate these works of art. Several dollhouses will be for sale that night. Following the event, One Kings Lane will have the houses and the designers featured in a special charity sale, with all proceeds benefitting the UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital.
