Barbie doll, 54 years young this coming March, is a couture icon. From the very beginning, whatever she sets out to do, she always makes it look fab! As for the art of fashion itself, Principal Designer Robert Best delved deep into the past, looking to the great fashion houses of historical Europe for new inspirations.
This year, Robert expands upon the “Atelier” theme for the BFMC, starting with Luncheon Ensemble Barbie® Doll. She’s a lady about town, savoring the first breaths of Spring and opening herself to a fresh blush of color. Going out for an afternoon bite with her friends, she chooses an elegant taffeta ensemble with a classic shape, and a pink floral print. The fitted knee-length dress and puffed-sleeve swing coat are beautifully accessorized with pointed pumps and gloves. Bows at the shoulders and a rosette embellishment on the lovely turban complete the chic couture creation.
