It’s no secret that Barbie is the quintessential fashion icon, and has been every little girl’s style muse since 1959. Fast-forward to Spring 2015, and five amazing designers who were once little girls, found themselves listening to their inner child’s muse to each design a unique look.
Barbie has teamed up with top CFDA designers Tess Giberson, Rebecca Taylor, Cynthia Vincent, Whitney Pozgay of WHIT, and Charlotte Ronson. Each designer created a dress inspired by their childhood favorite. The looks were showcased by Chelsea Market in a glitzy, very pink, and glamorous pop-up lounge reminiscent of my own Barbie house.
During the CFDA x Barbie VIP Party on September 6, guests indulged in pink bubbly, schmoozed with CFDA CEO Steven Kolb and designers Tess Giberson, Cynthia Vincent, and Whitney Pozgay. By far my favorite design was by WHIT, who herself is a self-proclaimed Barbie fan. “I had a little Barbie car, and I turned my bunkbed into Barbie’s apartment [building] where downstairs was where Barbie lived, and upstairs would be Ken’s apartment. And that was how we played.” So did I Whitney! We are total Barbie sisters!
