Barbie Collector Introduces Tim Gunn Collection for Barbie®

Jul 27, 2012

Fashion consultant and TV personality Tim Gunn, best known for his work on the hit reality competition show “Project Runway,” is a style guru with over 20 years of experience. This year, he brings his expertise to the world’s most famous fashion icon and any stylist’s dream client — Barbie® doll! In a fab and fun collaboration to “make it work,” Tim partnered with the Barbie® design team to bring his classic fashion staples to life in Barbie® scale. The Tim Gunn Collection for Barbie® brings two beloved fashion icons together.
 

DOLLS
• As Tim always says, “smart separates give your wardrobe lots of versatility” and, of course, Barbie® is always right on trend. Wearing her favorite pair of skinny jeans, she rocks a chic patterned blouse tied perfectly at the neck and tops it off with a bright yellow jacket. Always one to accessorize, she completes the look with a gorgeous metallic purse, her must-have smart phone and one of her fave books — Gunn’s Golden Rules. Barbie® takes this casual look to a whole new level in a way only the fashion icon can.
• All doll’d up in a meticulously shaped pencil skirt and polished white button down shirt, Barbie® brings her iconic style front and center to the office or out on the town. Looking fabulously effortless with her side part ponytail and sophisticated glasses, she is “making it work” in this chic ensemble. A wide belt, high-heeled sandals and red handbag all showcase Tim Gunn’s touch of style and taste.
SRP: $29.95 | Available August 2012 | Ages: 6+

ACCESSORY PACKS
In addition to Barbie® dolls, Tim created doll accessory packs that incorporate fashion basics that every fashionista should have in her wardrobe!
• For an evening soiree or a glamorous night out, a fun print skirt and asymmetrical black top is all she needs when paired with a sparkly bracelet, fab earrings, black clutch and strappy sandals to make this ensemble truly “pop.”
• Barbie® knows how to perfectly balance any outfit, such as rocking this classic patent “leather” trench coat for a look that’s both preppy and edgy. Tim Gunn shows off the fashion icon’s timeless style with a cozy houndstooth scarf and doll-icious stiletto ankle booties and of course, she stays up on all the recent trends with her go-to stack of fashion magazines.
