Sadie Williams has created a whole new wardrobe for Barbie and even created a video to accompany.
London based designer Sadie Williams first caught Barbie’s eye at the last Central Saint Martin’s MA show and has since gone on to dress five dolls in her miniature designs, each are special edition one-off priced at £120 and available exclusively from Selfridges Toy Shop from 14th February the first day of London Fashion Week.
About the collaboration Williams says: “I wanted to create a Barbie gang of ultra princessy tomboys. I’ve always been a bit of a tomboy, and at the same time I love dressing up. I wanted my Barbies to encapsulate these playful elements by creating special shimmering gowns, each a one-off featuring my hand worked textiles.”
Barbie’s already well acquainted with a host of London based designers, having been previously been dressed by Fred Butler, Louise Gray, Nasir Mazhar and Sibling. She’s had her hair done by Bleach in Dalston, worn couture from milliner Stephen Jones and had her dreamhouse re-imagined by Roksanda Illincic.
If you fancy a bit of Sadie Williams for your wardrobe, a capsule of embossed mini-dresses and lurex-print sweatshirts for adults are also on sale at Selfridges London.
