You know how much I love Barbie, well the most lavish line of Barbie Dolls are walking down the nearest catwalk right now, the Barbie Fashion Model Collection celebrating Barbie\’s glamorous heritage and style from the golden era of Hollywood to modern-day Paris.
For the 2012 Collection\’s “Atelier” theme, designer Robert Best was inspired by the great fashion workshops of Europe. This collection captures the essence of high fashion with intricately crafted and beautifully tailored clothing, richly designed jewelry and highly detailed accessories.
The original “Atelier” miniature sets are on display at Studio P.H. 8442\’s Portrait of a Hollywood Dressing Room installation, where select 2012 Barbie Fashion Model Collection dolls are also exclusively available for pre-order, visit their website here.
Still on Barbie News, she will be unveiling her larger than life Dream Closest at the Lincoln Center to coincide with New York Fashion Week. The Barbie installation opens with 24-foot tall, jewel encrusted doors leading into a two-story, 9,000 square-foot set with multiple dressing vignettes. Barbie fans will be able to use augmented reality technology “mirrors” that allow users to literally doll themselves up in her most iconic, playful and glamorous outfits from the past five decades. Live models will also dress the set in high fashion looks by Oscar de la Renta, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Moschino, Chloe, and Burberry on loan from the Albright Fashion Library. Also this month, Mattel teams up with Paul Frank for an exclusive Target collection featuring Barbie and Ken in day and nighttime wear plus accessories featuring Julius the monkey.
Barbie is such a stylish collaborator!
