Barbie Turns 50 at colette

To finish off Paris Fashion Week, Parisian concept store colette threw a big bash to celebrate Barbie's 50th Birthday

Barbie already got a big catwalk extravaganza during New York Fashion Week with the likes of Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Tommy Hilfiger, Diane Von Furstenberg and Marchesa creating outfits for the blonde icon. During London Fashion Week, Roksanda Ilincic and Danielle Scutt got in on the Barbie fun and debuted their own capsule wardrobes for the doll ranging from slinky black dresses to casual denim jackets.

Last night, the celebration culminated in a big bash at the colette store in Paris where Ilincic, Scutt's outfits and also Gareth Pugh's Ken doll are on display. On the first floor, a "Barbie Room" has been installed to present Jeremy Scott's clothing and accessories for Barbie. In addition limited products specially chosen by colette are available from the most unlikely designers; a Bless Barbie hairbursh, surreal accessories designer Azumi & David's hat-bag and original creations by recycled material designer Andrea Crews. The luxury is ramped up by a specially designed Goyard trunk, Bruno Frisoni shoes with Barbie doll heels. Guests were also treated to a sneak peek of the very first Barbie and Ken dolls in a high security protected window.
