As Barbie turns 50 next year, “Mattel is lining up new partnerships with Bloomingdale’s, Vera Wang, Jeremy Scott, IMG and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. The company plans a runway show in February, as part of fashion week in New York, with 50 as-yet-undisclosed designers who will produce life-size outfits inspired by Barbie.” Christian Louboutin will also be “designing pumps in iconic Barbie Pantone 219 Pink, which will also debut in February during New York Fashion Week and each of the 50 models will be wearing the pink Louboutins at the show.” A girl can only wish she was Barbie, jealous! I can’t wait to see all 50 designs and the CL pumps!
“I guess I always had a little ‘girlie side’ who liked Barbie,” Louboutin said. “Barbie needs to wear great shoes because every girl needs to wear great shoes.” via WWD
