Since this year is Barbie's 50th birthday (yes, the whole year), Mattel has planned a runway show this month during Fashion Week with 50 different designers crating life style looks inspired by the Barbie doll. Barbie's first ever runway show is said to celebrate the past, present, and future of fashion with the doll as the muse.
I'm excited to see what these designers come up with. With names like Tracey Reese, Peter Som, Tory Burch, Rachel Roy, and Reem Acra (yay!) in the mix, I'm super pumped to see the final products from these folks. Plus Christian Louboutin will be creating a pump in the iconic Barbie Pink.
Sidenote: I kinda wish Vivienne Westwood was designing something for the event. Call me crazy but I think a Vivienne Westwood x Barbie collabo would be awesome!
