With New York Fashion Week approaching, JSD thought it would be a great opportunity to share some never before seen images from one of many fashion shows we were invited to last season. In February, Bryant Park was all about Barbie and we were backstage at the extravagant fashion presentation inside the tents. This production featured designs by 50 designers and featured 50 kids, including Ming Lee and Aoki Lee (Daughter of Russell Simmons and Kimora Lee). The dramatic make-up, big 70s hair, and timeless fashions made for an incredible show. Enjoy!

    It was a fantastic show…every guest received a limited edition Barbie that evening. A collectors item.

    OMG! They did such an awesome job modeling the models after the Barbies! The retro glasses were perfect for the classic Barbie look and the clothes were hot! I love it! And I love the model that’s the Kimora Barbie-CUTE!
