The 2012 Barbie Fashion Model Collection has been launched, and it's one of the most glamorous lines yet. For this year's collection, the theme is 'Atelier,' and designer Robert Best has used inspiration from Europe's couture workshops and fashion houses to create a lineup of beautiful and intricately detailed high-fashion pieces for the iconic doll.
The Barbie Fashion Model Collection is a series of Barbie dolls introduced in 2000 that targets adult Barbie collectors. The 2012 Barbie Fashion Model Collection celebrates "Barbie’s glamorous heritage and style from the golden era of Hollywood to modern-day Paris," describes Studio P.H. 8442, which is currently displaying the collection for its 'Portrait of a Hollywood Dressing Room' installation. The dolls are also available for pre-order at the exhibit.
