‘To start from zero’ is a painful decision for me
By Omi, former designer of DollHeart
Since March 2008, I became a BJD lover. I joined DollHeart at that time and have the happiest moments in my lfe, until December 2014.
The manufacture began producing the goods and the models of our new design to us at a very slow speed. In the end, when we are faced with a lack of new products and supply issues, the manufacture even abandoned us. We are helpless, but what can we do?
At that time, Pasu Lau, CEO of DollHeart and also one of the shareholders of DollHeart, said that, the other shareholders (actually, they are the manufacture) are going to close down DollHeart. DollHeart is the brainchild of Pasu, me and my colleagues. They just need to say a word, DollHeart will gone. We can only feel helpless and sad.
At last, Pasu and the former colleagues of DollHeart cooperate with a new partner to form a new brand, CODENOIR. In February 2015, I officially employed as designer of CODENOIR.
One thing that I find most frustrating is the design I left in DollHeart. The scenario that I face:
1- The manufacture of DollHeart did not send any goods and the models of our new design to us. It seems that the manufacture was not producing our goods.
2- When Pasu announce us that DollHeart is going to close down, the colleagues believe that when they left, the other shareholders did not have enough goods and support to continue the operations of DollHeart.
3- Pasu and the colleagues left DollHeart.
There are many designs that waiting for the models from the manufacture for a long time. They were once decided to be the new products for 1-2 fear(s). They are my design, but I even do not have the opportunity to see any outcomes of them when I am still an employee of DollHeart. I want to see the birth of my design, so I decide to let the new brand, CODENOIR, to make use of them and produce them as new products.
About 4 months after I became CODENOIR designer, I found that the official homepage of DollHeart is still working. The other shareholders are still running DollHeart’s business. Around 80% of their new products are the designs that have not receive any models till I left DollHeart. The feeling of that time is just like my son have been robbed by them. Also, I was shocked to see that they also produce my new designs in CODENOIR. I am frightened that will people think that I am the one who plagiarize. In fact, the cloths are lunched by CODENOIR first, but not DollHeart. (This can prove by the launching time of the product)
I want to told you that, I worked for a year in CODENOIR. Although we work hard to build up the brand, the propaganda of CODENOIR still insufficient. I think I have lost a lot of foreign fans, so I want to state clear that I am a former designer of DollHeart. Omi is now a designer of CODENOIR. I hope you will like my designs in the new brand, CODENOIR.
When I see people let their dolls to wear the clothes that I design, I feel very happy and grateful to the people who support me. If you are my fans, I want to let you know that I am in CODENOIR now!

Designer of CODENOIR
在新地方工作了4個月，我再次打開不再屬於我的DH網頁，我看到的竟然是供應廠商他們自己好像還在經營........這是惡意侵吞嗎? 看到里面有8成的設計跟照片也是我設計跟拍攝，每個設計都是我的心血....感覺就像自己親生兒子被拿走一樣。我最震驚的是，他們竟然也出了我在CODENOIR出的新衣服...........我驚呆了TT我在想會不會有人以為是我是抄襲的一方呢? 可是我想說，那一些衣服是我們推出在先的.....(大家可以看回推出的時間)
