At the Mercedes Benz NYC Fall Fashion Week, presenters revealed an unexpected but long overdue new event: Barbie’s Dream Closet. Hosted by Mattel, the 53-year old icon was honored with Barbie’s The Dream Closet Cocktail Party at the David Rubenstein Atrium of Lincoln Center in New York.
Barbie made several appearances as various models donned decades-worth of signature Barbie styles. Models mingled with designers, journalists, bloggers and, of course, children who enjoyed “hair styling, manicures and DIY art projects” at the Beauty Bar.
But the night’s grand spectacle came from several enormous computer screens offering the ultimate Barbie dress-up experience. Highlighting over 50 years of fashion trends, the virtual wardrobe experience allowed participants to virtually delve into Barbie’s wardrobe, playing dress up with Barbie’s fashion anthology.
High-profile guests included Brooke Shields, Rose McGowan, and Kelly Rutherford.
Maybe 50 years ago when Barbie was young, the dream wardrobe was a big deal. But nowadays, it doesn’t have to be. At Contempo Closet, we build closets specifically to match your specifications in terms of size, space, color and finish.
Barbie has had her dream wardrobe for nearly half a century. Isn’t it time you got yours?
