Barbie’s timeless appeal

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I may not have played with Barbie dolls for about twenty years, but I was as excited as a small child to hear of the Barbie exhibition at Paris’ Musée des arts décoratifs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
The exhibition traces the history of Barbie, the manufacturing process, and how the iconic doll reflects cultural and societal shifts.

A definite must-see if you’re a fan of Barbie and fashion –  the exhibition features Barbie dressed by designers including Oscar de la Renta, and 7,000 of her tiny outfits displayed in a riot of rainbow colour.
