Barbie Global Beauty

Posted by thedollcafe at Friday, September 18, 2015 2 comments
I am so impressed by the way that Barbie is described in this month's Italian Vogue:

"Barbie’s charm? Boundless, just like her popularity. There is no other doll that can embrace looks and styles so different and interpret cultures and traditions. Every moment of the life of a woman, every career, every dream has had a Barbie doll playing it out." 

It has never been more evident that Barbie can embrace every woman when you peruse the current releases of the Barbie Fashionistas line.  I had stopped buying a lot of the playline Barbie dolls but these last two waves of Fashionistas have really caught my attention.  Just a few days ago I was able to find the last few that I was looking for.

You can see how beautiful and representative of many cultures that these current Barbies are when you see these Barbie Fashionistas commissioned by Vogue Italia to be displayed during fashion week in Milan starting Thursday, September 24th.  There are a total of 20 dolls designed by 10 known designers and 10 up and coming designers "in a project that sought to express the global appeal of Barbie’s beauty."

Here is the entire collection:

Here are a few edits I created of my favorite dolls in this collection.  If you are able to stop by and view the collection please take pictures and have an amazing time!

Gasp, can it be...? Yes, I'm back, but I never really went anywhere

Just a quick post to let you know that The Doll Cafe blog is still around. I'm really working on posting more, even if it's a pic or a link or something. I do post very regularly on facebook, twitter, tumblr and instagram these days and have even revived my Flickr.  I've even created a Periscope account but I've only broadcast two times.  I've been buying a variety of dolls and of course still collecting but my camera broke and I ran out of time to regularly blog and communicate with my doll friends here so I'm back.

I lost interest in collecting Barbie a bit last year. I was so sad not to be able to obtain the Karl Doll! But alas I was able to obtain the much talked-about Platinum Tokidoki. I'm pretty sure I'm going to de-box her, I think I really need to since I was also able to obtain the pink one and I do have the original as well....
It's just a matter of time....

  tokidoki Barbie (Platinum Label)

 On that note, I wanted to signal boost my dear friend in Australia Yvonne's Tiny Living adorable tokidoki clothes. More pics and more fun very soon! I promise...

Please place your name in the comments of each photo if you would like to buy the item and then I can send you a paypal request. PM me your paypal email :)Thank You!
