Barbie received a prestigious award from American fashion designers
The Council of the Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has declared awarding Barbie® with CFDA, the Board of Directors’ Tribute 2019, having underlined a huge contribution it has made to the American culture and fashion over the 60 years.
“Barbie has made a great influence on the American fashion and culture”, said Stephen Kolb, CFDA President and Chief Executive Officer. “Its history resonates with many CFDA members, and the Board of Directors decided to distinguish it with such a high reward”.
Over the years, Barbie has cooperated with more than 75 designers and fashion influencers including GiGi Hadid and Jeremy Scott. Oscar De La Renta was the first partnering designer of Barbie in 1985; Bob Mackie started working with Barbie in 1990 making collectors dolls. CFDA members Vera Wang, Diane von Fürstenberg, Anna Sui, Zac Posen, Badgley Mischka, and Stephen Burrows worked on exclusive Barbie dolls, too.
From our side, we will point out that the famous Barbie has been exhibited at Mir Detstva since 1994, and we are going to meet Barbie again for the 25th time in September 2019!
