Barbie Expo - a magical exhibition of haute couture


When I read an article about Barbie Expo based here in Montreal few days ago, I did not exactly know what to think. I mean, I am not that little girl who is in love with Barbies anymore. But I was curious and I still had it in my mind, especially after reading a slogan: "It is not for the little girl you once were, it is for a grown-up, sophisticated fashionista you have become; for the connaisseur of haute couture and lover of all things beautiful that you are today."  So I called my friend Susana and we decided to go.

I will tell you that it was a very good decision (not because of the free admission)! I was so impressed. This exhibition contains over 1000 of Barbies, however it is not about the Barbie doll at all - you have an amazing opportunity to learn more about history of fashion, discover different cultures and see the traditional clothes from around the world exposed directly on those Barbies. You will meet Holly from Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sandy from Grease or Alex from Flashdance. Then you can admire haute couture and designs by Donna Karan, Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren or Givenchy; and you can be that little girl for a while again! This is really not Barbie the way you remember her!

Instead of describing them in detail, let just the pictures speak - enjoy this extensive gallery!
