Description

If you've ever had a Barbie doll, or you know someone who did, chances are that Barbie was dressed in one of the thousands of designs created by Carol Spencer during her unparalleled reign as a Barbie fashion designer spanning more than 35 years. Published in commemoration of Barbie's sixtieth anniversary, Dressing Barbie is a dazzling celebration of the clothes that made Barbie and the incredible woman behind them.

Illustrated with more than 100 full-colour photographs, including many never-before-seen images of rare and one-of-a-kind pieces from Spencer's private archive, Dressing Barbie is a treasure trove of some of the best and most iconic Barbie looks from the early 1960s until the late 1990s.

Along with behind-the-scenes stories of how these designs came to be, Spencer reminisces about her thrilling time at Mattel working with legendary figures such as Ruth Handler, Barbie's creator and Charlotte Johnson, the original Barbie designer, for a full, insider look into life with the beloved doll.
