Fashion Icon Friday…featuring Barbie!!

Give it up for the original teenage fashion model turned style icon!!

In 1959 Mattel introduced the BARBIE DOLL, a teen age Fashion Model. Unlike her predecessors Barbie was a grown-up doll.

 

Barbie appealed to a new demographic of girls that were living in an adult world. She had the same hopes and dreams as the little girls that played with her. Barbie was free to do anything she wanted.
