Barbie 50th Year Celebration at SSAFW

The moment Barbie was introduced to the world, a fashion icon was born. Debuting in 1959 as “The Original Teenage Fashion Model,” Barbie allowed girls to experience amazing fashion play, and explore various dreams, fantasies and aspirations.
And, if you look at Barbie throughout the decades, she is always a perfect reflection of contemporary fashion, having served as a model and muse to many of the most world renowned names in fashion over the last 50 years. In 2009, when pink is the new black, Barbie has inspired Top South African Designers & selected Winners of The Barbie Future Design Talent Project at UJ Design School to create fashion forward outfits for woman at the Barbie Inspired Showcase at SSAFW on opening night, Wednesday September 16th. And in true diva style Barbie will host the glamorous After Party for the close of SSAFW at The Venue – Melrose Arch on Saturday September 19th. At her first ever fashion extravaganza in South Africa, we will celebrate the inspiration she has been by taking to the runway, to celebrate her first love, fashion.
