Amazing news this morning! Louise Gray will be teaming up with Barbie to create three life-sized outfits inspired by everyone’s favourite plastic fantastic doll. The results of this amazing collaboration will be revealed at London Fashion Week during Louise’s show, which is of course sponsored by Barbie!
“It’s been interesting inviting Barbie into my world and giving her a makeover as part of my spring/summer 2013 collection,” the designer told British Vogue. “She is so famous; it was fun to give her a Louise Gray twist. It will be really different to anything she has done or been seen in before.”
And what has she got up her sleeve for the blonde beauty?
“I wanted to see Barbie in some separates and layer up her look and give her a different way to be girly and fun compared to what people may have seen before or normally associate with her.”
Well there you go. Although all three of the looks will be adult sized, one of the outfits will be made to fit Barbie herself, which we have to say is pretty exciting stuff! First Minne Mouse and now Barbie – London Fashion Week is turning into our childhood fantasy!
