The Barbie Basics Collection

Barbie Basics

The little black dress just met its match – Barbie! The just – launched Barbie Basics collection gives grown-up girls permission to play and celebrates every fashionista’s must-have wardrobe staple – the iconic LBD. Twelve fab dolls each sport their own distinct silhouette of the fashion classic and represent a variety of hairstyles, facial features and skin tones. The dolls can be customized to represent your own personal style with the ultra-chic accessory packs, including shoes, scarfs, jewelry and more! Whether you prefer glam or urban, bling or girly, these accessories inspire creativity and reinvent a fashion staple.


To celebrate the launch of the LBD-loving Barbie Basics line, twelve CFDA fashion and accessories designers, including Isaac Mizrahi, Kate Spade’s Deborah Lloyd , Tory Burch, Rachel Roy and Monica Botkier, created one-of-a-kind dolls spotlighting their unique points-of-view. Starting January 28 at 10pm EST through February 7, these individually styled pieces of art will be auctioned off on eBay with the entire net proceeds directly benefiting CFDA education initiatives and scholarship program. The opening bid begins at $100.

In the spirit of giving, Barbie will also be giving away one of her stylish new Barbie Basics dolls with an accessory pack every day on her Twitter from February 1-16. Follow her @BarbieStyle for the latest details!
