Barbie is turning the big 5-0!
This is a much bigger event than I had thought. A full scale runway show is being produced by Mattel who is partnering with designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Sui, and Rachel Roy. The looks are inspired from iconic looks from the doll's stylish closet (archives). The collaborations do not end there. Christian Louboutin will be supplying the bubble gum pink patent pumps for the show. After her runway presentation, Barbie is jetting off to the east coast for her Jonathan Adler interpreted dream house in Malibu. But it's no R&R just yet. Barbie will be packing her bags for Paris where she will be on display at the Colette thanks to Karl Lagerfield.
I can not wait to see images from this runway show. I'm sure it will bring back some indulgent memories from my childhood and is definitely a breath of optimism for the industry!
