Tuesday March 14th: Matty Bovan for Barbie

Barbie celebrated both her birthday and International Women's Day with a new SS17 wardrobe by Matty Bovan.  The new line of miniature garms were presented with a panel discussion exploring female identity chaired by Susie Lau and premiere of Matty's film made for Barbie GIRLNESS'.  Barbie recently integrated three new body types - tall, curvy and petite and expanded the variety of skin tones and hair styles.  Head to Selfridges for the Fashion East pop-up shop to see these styles and all of Matty's merchandise surrounding the campaign including badges and t-shirts.  Here is one of the outfits with his trademark jewellery and a flower hat seemingly spontaneously borrowed from Barbie's rose & pistachio birthday cake by Lily Vanilli!
