Come on Barbie, let’s go play! Barbie has decided to celebrate its 60th anniversary by teaming up with streetwear retailer, Kith, for a unique styling experience for consumers to showcase their style and taste. Starting Saturday, September 21, customers will get the opportunity to style one of four Barbie dolls using over 100 miniature Kith Women apparel and accessories for a chance to be selected as the official Kith x Barbie doll.
The styling sessions will be held from September 21st to September 29th at Kith’s Soho location on the second floor, the Arsham/Fieg Gallery. While all the appointments slots have been booked, they are now taking walk-ins.
Participants are required to submit a photo of their styled doll which be evaluated by professionals who know a thing or two about style like Dianne Garcia, Jackie Kim, Maeve Reilly, Ade Samuel, and Ronnie Fieg.
In addition to the styling experience, the first 200 guests will received a limited edition Kith x Barbie tee and there will also be an on-site exhibition celebrating Barbie’s 60th anniversary which will feature the original 1959 Barbie in her original look.
