Fashion Designer Andrea Cucchi is used to making garments and sportswear. However, in the past year, he has decided to apply his creativity to Barbie dolls and create some interesting boxed tributes to the toy icon.

Andrea Cucchi calls his piece BoxedBarbie and spends roughly over eight hours just to make one restyled Barbie. Using his design skills, he styles the fabrics and materials he needs to create his rather interesting models.
