Barbie's 'Dream Closet' on Display at New York Fashion Week

The original fashion plate joined the New York Fashion Week calendar, setting up camp Friday night in the David Rubenstein Atrium with her own “Dream Closet.”

IN A BARBIE WORLD: Barbie, the original fashion plate, joined the New York Fashion Week calendar, setting up camp Friday night in the David Rubenstein Atrium with her own “Dream Closet,” a pink glittering wonderland full of all things Barbie. But the real fun came on Saturday, when a select group of fashion moms and children — including Brooke Shields with daughters Grier and Rowan, and Kelly Rutherford with daughter Helena Grace — got to play dress-up in the Mattel star’s virtual closet (a giant iPad-esque screen projected looks and outfits) and hang out at the beauty bar for hair styling, manicures and DIY art projects (design your own Barbie dress!) Mingling among the guests were a bevy of models styled to recall classic Barbie looks. The closet will be open to the public through Monday.
