Barbie On Trend

Barbie seems to be having her fashion moment right now. Not only has she been cast for a show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, she even has her own runway show in New York next week.

With this in mind and as we eagerly anticipate the Autumn/Winter 09 catwalk shows, where we'll find out exactly what we'll be wearing next season, I decided to recreate some of last season's popular trends in... ahem... a much smaller size.

Who better to model these designs than the plastic lady herself... Barbie, enjoy the limelight...
Tartan was seen in several shades on the Autumn/Winter 08 shows. Tones of red and navy were the choice of the day at Dolce & Gabbana, whereas House of Holland showcased a royal blue shade of tartan.
Skinny trousers have been a big trend during the winter season. Shown on the Givenchy catwalk, we've seen a variety of fabrics filter down to the high street with choices such as; leather, lycra, waxed denim and sequin all proving to be popular to show off those fabulous pins!

The little black dress, better know as the LBD, has always been a fashion favourite. Balenciaga introduced a sculpted shape to the catwalk last season, which accentuated the desirable, hour-glass figure.
