Barbie Basics: All Glammed Up (29-Jan-2011)

09 Aug

The Barbie Basics is a line of collector’s edition Barbie dolls.

They were created by Mattel designer Bill Greening and were introduced in late 2009 to be officially released in the spring of 2010.

From their name, the dolls are dressed in “basic” clothing that women usually have in their closets.

The debut collection featured the most well-known fashion staple: the little black dress.

The dolls also have differing head molds, skin tones and ethnicities and are part of the Black Label collection.

The Barbie Basics was the first doll line (and retail product) to bear the logo of the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) on their boxes.”  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbie_Basics)

Looking at these dolls inspires me and gets me pumped up in designing clothes.

Now, we have more options to choose from.
