Yesterday London Fashion Week has started and this year the famous fashion festival has a very importnat guest: Barbie. London-based fashion label Sister By Sibling has partenered with the iconic doll for their Fall/Winter 2012 collection. In the Newgen space at Somerset House, where the festival takes place, six dolls dressed in miniaturized looks were displayed and six huge polaroid pictures of them that were shot for the presentation for the new collection. The images were made by photographer Alastair Strong and entitled “Test Shots“.
I love it when fashion designers turn to Barbie for inspiration and help. That what Barbie is all about, for me at least. A fashion model and a great inspiration. Not very crazy about the images but the clothes look nice and I would love if we had again a series like those wonderful Benetton Barbies.
