During Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week last week, I visited Barbie: The Dream Closet at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center.
I had a Barbie Dream House of my own growing up, so how excited was I to be in a life-size version! Being in The Dream Closet brought back so many Barbie memories, with Day-to-Night Barbie as my favorite Barbie, making her debut in 1984 with a suit that turned into a cocktail dress. To me, Barbie will always be a fashion icon, with an amazing wardrobe.
Guests who attended The Dream Closet were able to partake in digital wardrobing - scrolling through and choosing an outfit, having it scaled on to your proportions and then having your photo printed. You can try on your own looks at home by visiting
