Barbie Gets All Dolled Up For CFDA

For a 51 year old, Barbie really knows how to work her connections in the fashion industry.  Lasty February, many designers created special Barbie dresses for a runway show to highlight her turning the big 5-0.

Mattel and Council of Fashion Designers of America, have joined forces to mark the launch of the Barbie Basics doll from a CFDA memeber about the little black dress.  Also 12 CFDA members have accessorized a Barbie Basics doll, and in some cases, customized the little black dress.

The participating designers include Isaac Mizrahi, Rachel Roy, Justin Giunta, Lorraine Schwartz, Alexis Bittar, Monica Botkier, Deborah Lloyd of Kate Spade, Albertus Swanepoel and Devi Kroell.

The special editions will be auctioned on eBay starting this Thursday through Feb. 7, with an opening bid of $100.

The entire net proceeds from the sale of these dolls will benefit CFDA’s educational initiatives and scholarship program.
