What I particularly like about the Tiny Frock Shop is that the textures and patterns are so different that anything that you would see on a Barbie today. This site is a collector's dream come true but also works great as a gift.
Implications - Retro-chic is a style trend that transcends demographics and socio-economic class. Barbie wearing retro fashion suggests that the trend has gone from fringe to mainstream. Companies should consider creating products with a retro-chic aesthetic to appeal to a large cross-section of consumers.
