Inspired by the iconic 1959 Barbie, Evelina Bratell a student at Beckmans design school, created a fascinating Barbie fashion collection with a photography theme of living in the Barbie doll house.

Bratell's Barbie fashion collection was created in a blown-up scale of 6:1, while sticking as close as possible to the original doll version in proportions and materials. Bratell explains that the conditions are different when you make clothes in such a small format, as the task is more focused on simplification and the overall effect. She resorted to playing with Barbies, remembering her childhood and comparing with the experiences of others as sources of incentive and inspiration to discover and see new things.

Modeled by Izabelle from Elite Models, the amazing photo concept and production of the doll house was by FC UNITED, Fredrik Evensen & Carl Kleiner with make up by Sophia Eriksen/ Agent Bauer.
