2018 Day To Night Barbie Doll.

She’s back to inspire a new generation of leaders! Day-to-Night™ Barbie® Doll was originally released in 1985, and now she’s ready to change the world again as a vintage reproduction doll. Shockingly, Barbie® Signature Principal Designer Bill Greening didn’t have the original Day-to-Night™ Barbie® Doll in his personal collection, but it should come as no surprise that he’s pretty familiar with it. “I know she’s a fan favorite,” he says, “and she feels very iconic to the brand, too.”

In designing her triumphant return to the workplace, Greening also benefited from an understanding of the history and the pop culture touchpoints of the women’s workplace revolution, during which Day-to-Night™ Barbie® originally debuted. “She was a business woman breaking the glass ceiling, so to speak, as showcased in films of the era like 9 to 5 and Working Girl. Plus, she’s the first doll to really showcase fashion transformation – a theme still popular today.”

Features of dolls from the vintage era aren’t always the easiest to re-create, and that can present challenges for even the most seasoned designer. “The pink flocked fabric suit isn’t made from a fabric we widely use today in the Barbie line,” Greening explains, describing the soft pink power suit that transforms into a shirred skirt evening look. “We also had to make sure the fashion transformation was just as magical as the original.” How did they manage to pull that off? Well, it wouldn’t be as magical if we revealed the trick…

Of course, no Barbie® doll – vintage, modern, or reproduction – is complete without a suite of fun and perfectly matched accessories. For Greening, her briefcase, calculator, spectator heels, and wide brim hat “are cues to signify she means business! I also love the Superstar face sculpt, and her bendable legs that ‘click’ when you bend them. It definitely takes me back to playing with Barbie® in the 1980s.”

Includes doll, doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity. Black Label collection. – Release date: December 18, 2017 Cherylsdolls.com/ Amazon.comBarbie.Mattel.com.

One-of-a-kind doll  Barbie in Batik.

Mattel presents Barbie Batik as a tribute to Indonesian culture, where Mattel’s largest factory is located. One-of-a-kind Barbie Batik Doll was given to the Minister of Industry as a symbol of good relationship between Mattel and the Indonesian government.

The doll was dressed in pink-and-purple batik with signature motifs of parang (tongue of fire) and megamendung (blue-and-white cloud). The outfit was completed with a scarf and accessories that included shoes, earrings and a golden-colored necklace.

“Today, the batik Barbie was launched, which shows that Mattel is geared toward the branding of local Indonesian products,” Airlangga said at the Mattel Indonesia factory in Cikarang, West Java, on Monday as quoted by kompas.com(2017/12/04).

It is not yet known when the Barbie in batik will be available in stores or what motif the doll will wear. According to Mattel, the company is set to explore further development before officially launching the product in the market.

The doll will be available for purchase in Indonesia, in 2018.

Supermodel Ashley Graham receives in 2016 her very own One of a Kind Barbie doll.

November 15, 2016 – To call 2016 a big year for Ashley Graham would be an understatement. There were the magazine covers, the runways, the television shows and now, to cap things off, a coveted spot on Glamour’s Women of the Year list (along with Simone Biles, the creators of the #BlackLivesMatter movement and others).

But of all these accolades, which Graham told The Huffington Post makes her want to “pinch herself,” there’s one she may have expected least of all: The 29-year-old supermodel was presented with her very own Barbie at Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards in Los Angeles on Monday night.

Graham was honored for her activism toward inclusivity in fashion and for being strong influence on young women ― but she never dreamed of getting her own Barbie. “Does any little girl imagine they’re going to have a Barbie made in their likeness?” she asked.

Barbie® Yves Saint Laurent Doll

With a shared passion for personal style, Barbie® honors French fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent (b. 1936 – d. 2008), for his vast impact on women’s 20th century fashion. One of the greatest names in fashion history, Yves Saint Laurent invented the modern woman’s wardrobe: the pea-jacket and trenchcoat in 1962, the first tuxedo in 1966, the safari jacket and the pantsuit in 1967, and the first jumpsuit in 1968.

While constantly in search of simplicity, each collection was also a chance to bring his dreams to life. Fascinated by different cultures, nostalgic of a ‘lost time,’ he came up with dresses that transported the public to an imaginary elsewhere, from Russia to China, from India to Morocco. He also developed numerous garments directly referencing the artists he admired such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Vincent Van Gogh, and of course Piet Mondrian.

Paying homage to the visionary designer, Barbie® models Yves Saint Laurent’s iconic Mondrian dress from the Autumn-Winter 1965 collection. The multi-colored knit dress recalls the Dutch artist’s sense of geometry, while a seamless patchwork and sleek back zipper reflect the designer’s keen attention to detail. Black heels with silvery buckles and pearly earrings finish the timeless look. This beautiful doll is presented in collaboration with the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris. Label: Platinum Label®. Designer: Linda Kyaw. Release Date: November 5, 2018. Barbie.mattel.com.

Katherine Coleman Johnson Barbie Doll – Release Date: May 20, 2018 Target.com/ Barbie.Mattel.com.

Barbie® recognizes all female role models. The Inspiring Women™ Series pays tribute to incredible heroines of their time; courageous women who took risks, changed rules, and paved the way for generations of girls to dream bigger than ever before. While growing up in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, Katherine Johnson displayed an intense curiosity and an extraordinary brilliance with words and numbers alike. As a child prodigy, she entered high school at 10 years old and graduated summa cum laude from college when she was just eighteen with two Bachelor of Science degrees in mathematics and French. In the mid-1950s, she joined a pool of African-American women hired by NASA to work as human computers. Katherine calculated the trajectory of NASA’s first American-manned flight into space. Her flawless calculations helped ensured that the Apollo astronauts landed and returned safely from their voyage to the moon. Her figures were so consistently accurate, that when NASA switched to computers, they had Katherine double-check the accuracy of the results. The Barbie® Inspiring Women™ Katherine Johnson doll celebrates the achievements of a pioneer who broke through barriers of race and gender. Like the trajectories she calculated, Katherine’s contributions inspire young people to excel in math and science, and to reach for the stars.
