The Moschino spring fashion show in Milan is the highlight of the season as the Barbie-Inspired Fashion Show is one you need to see. These back to the 80s fashions are like known youve seen before and all you girls that played with barbie, or wish you had played with barbiw, can watch this recreation with both amazement and amusement. For me, it’s a bucket list item if I could dress like this. perhaps there is some inspiration for you in here.
Moschino hasbrought your childhood Barbie dolls to life on the Milan runway. Workout Barbie, Roller Barbie, Western Barbie—all your girls are there. Now the question is, can you identify all of them?
Models had seriously voluminous wigs (platinum blond if it worked) and the entire first half of the show was all bubble-gum pink. There were all kinds of retro references too, from the chain belts to the prim skirt suits, and, of course, plenty of whacky moments. Some of my favorites? The roller-skating model who did a little spin at the end of the catwalk and a white terry-cloth dress that made the model look like she’d just stepped out of the shower.
The Barbie Barbies we spotted? Work-Out Barbie (with sweatsuit and hand weights), Western Barbie, and basically every band member from Barbie and the Rockers. Whichever Barbies were ready to party in bold ’80s party frocks and shop Rodeo Drive were also well represented.
There was a flip phone and boom-box purse, both items I remember some of my ’90s dolls having, and one model with a roller suitcase and bag who looked completely ready to move into her Malibu Dream House. Oversize bags and a bra top that actually looked like a clip-on plastic piece also cemented the doll moment.
