*On Location* Barbie: Examining an Icon (LOTS of Photos)


There have been many exhibits like this going on around the world. Check your local area for upcoming exhibits.

As you can see there were a lot of pop art pieces. I love the colors!

Of course my favorite part of the exhibit, were these vintage fashions!

 Vintage Barbie Black and White Swimsuit was the original outfit for the first Barbie dolls. The ponytail Barbie dolls sold in 1959 to 1961 were wearing the famous zebra striped suit. The first Bubblecuts were also wearing this. 

I highly recommend attending these exhibits! I hope you will be lucky enough to find one soon in your area! If you have been to a Barbie exhibit, please feel free to let us know about your experiences and leave a comment below. Or email photos!

 BarbieCon is in Phoenix this year 2018!
