We asked and you delivered!
In celebration of Barbie’s birthday, we teamed up with Karen Walker and asked YOU to help us create Barbie’s ‘outfit of dreams’ — an outfit that celebrates creativity, self-expression and personal style. We invited kids (aged 12 and under) to be a part of the process and submit their ideas for an ‘outfit of dreams’ to inspire Walker.
This project is one that hits close to home for Walker. “I have had a close relationship with Barbie since the age of seven when I first got my Malibu Barbie,” she shares. “Judging Barbie’s ‘outfit of dreams’ was a lot of fun — when you see young people’s work, it’s always incredible.”
The prize? A custom-made Barbie outfit (crafted by Walker, no less!) along with a Barbie prize pack valued up to $200. We received over 400 colourful, creative and cutting-edge entries from junior creatives around the country.
And the winner is — drumroll please! — Maddison Condick, age 10. “We went for the winning [entry] because of the silhouette. There was a really, really strong shape through the skirt and the sleeves that we thought we could execute beautifully,” Walker explains. “What we have is a beautiful silk taffeta gown with white sneakers and a cool attitude. It just reflects how people dress.”
