It is undeniable that Barbie is the most beloved doll by fashion designers, countless are the collaborations with the fashion world in which she played a leading role, from exclusive looks created for her, through the special edition Barbie Karl Lagerfeld to the last collaboration with Moschino who has brought her unique look on the catwalk.
Now it’s the turn of Vogue Italia that, together with Mattel has involved ten “success story” brands and ten promising talents asking them to dress Barbie, designing bespoke outfits that express at best the brand’s philosophy and at the same time embellish the most fashionable of dolls.
Each Barbie doll of the “Global Beauty” project was assigned a designer that will expressly create an ensemble worth of a true fashionista, with hair and makeup matching the outfit.
The Barbie dolls and the outfits expressly designed for them will be on show at Palazzo Morando in September during Milan Fashion Week, they will also be posing alongside the creations by the designers taking part in the Who is on Next? and Vogue Talents project.
