Package from @bobmackie. Nice little surprise on a crummy day. Thank you Mr. Mackie and co.! #barbie
A special thank-you to Bob Mackie’s staff for reaching out to me and presenting me with this amazing project.
All involved had so much fun with the MackieBound project - you will be seeing more in the new year!
MackieBound forever! :)
Madame du Barbie® doll captures the majesty and opulent elegance of the eighteenth century royal court of France. Her gown is a breathtaking confection of ice blue brocade with bead and jewel-embellished rococo embroidery. The coiffure and headpiece are appropriate for the most elegant of royal occasions.
Bob Mackie draws inspiration from a South American paradise. Brazilian Banana Bonanza™ Barbie® wears an exuberant, white-and-lime striped sarong. The dramatic skirt is edged with a bounty of “bananas.” Her basket headpiece holds “fruit” and hibiscus “blossoms.” Lace up platform sandals and colorful earrings and bangles complete her look. The final pièce de résistance is her favorite companion— an exotic “feathered” friend.
Forever young and eternally beautiful, this royal lady’s ensemble features a magnificent pannier skirt lined with metallic red-woven fabric, an enchanting collar and soaring headpiece encapsulating four inch high fiery red hair.
Barbie® doll’s favorite “ringmaster” of glamorous fashion — Bob Mackie — presents a stylish circus. Inspired by the exciting world beneath the Big Top, this doll wears an elaborate laced coat with extravagant red plumes. Her red boots and top hat are accented with a golden star and she comes seated on a black and golden trapeze swing.
Was mentioned not once, but twiceeee on Bob Mackie’s Twitter yesterday. Playing it cool while internally I am fully understanding the term “fan girling”.
