A work of art and fashion herself Barbie has been inspiring young minds for decades. So of course it was only fashionable for a fashion assistant to be at the opening of an exhibition dedicated to the most stylish doll of dolls. Barbie also has a personal symbolism for me as a ‘fashion person’. She was perhaps the first model I dressed, the first ‘person’ I ‘styled’ and I remember the joy that filled me arranging the different clothes she came with.
From the photographer himself: “I love the reaction that people have had to this shoot. Some have described the work as engaging, sophisticated and touching. Others see it as a bit tongue in cheek. One critique even thought I was making a statement on the superficiality of fashion – an interesting interpretation especially with the exhibition showing so close to fashion week.”.
The exhibition “Celebrate with Barbie” will run from May 13th – May 27th at Gallery Medium – Level 2, 85 William Street, East Sydney. Exhibition hours are Mon – Fri 10am – 6pm
