“From the start, this collection has always represented how Barbie® doll is transformed by the power of fashion — whether the subject is a 40s siren singing in a cabaret or a model on the streets of Paris.” — Robert Best
Just 10 short years ago, Mattel designer Robert Best conceived a BIG idea.
Inspired by the great fashion houses of the world, Robert wanted to create a line of dolls using fine fabrics, classic lines, and feminine details with a touch of whimsy. He also wanted to combine the best of 2 worlds — a vintage Barbie® face from the late 50’s and early 60’s with a modern, high fashion look. And so he set to work bringing his vision to life.
