September 21 - Body-Positive Fashion for Barbie
Fashion designer Christian Siriano has created a red carpet collection with a difference - for Barbie.
The creative has partnered with toy company Mattel to design five evening gowns designed to fit different body types found in the Barbie Fashionista line, inspired by looks he has dreamed up for celebrities, and his own Resort 2018 collection. Some of the outfits were inspired by actress Sarah Hyland, musician Solange, and actress Leslie Jones.
Barbie has undergone something of a brand transformation over the past few years, to include dolls with a variety of skin tones, body types, etc. Siriano, for his part, has long been an advocate for body positivity on the catwalk, using models of all shapes and sizes in his fashion shows.
