Barbie, the world’s most popular fashion doll manufactured by the American toy-company Mattel, is going back to the 1960s, the era in which she was born.
 
The doll, which was originally introduced on March 9, 1959, has become a subject of an exhibit highlighting the fashion of the decade of her birth.
 
Currently going on at the Parisian doll museum Musee de la Poupee, the event aims to pay tribute to the 29-inches-tall blonde-haired doll through a miniature vintage fashion display on hundreds of Barbie dolls.
 
Titled as Barbie-Retro Chic, the showcase features an array of gowns, wedding dresses, uniforms, lingerie and everyday clothing, sourced from private collectors like Dantec Sylvia and Eric Chatillon.
 
Due to run until September 13, 2014, the display includes some 12 doll costumes, such as haute couture style black and white cinched waist evening gowns and full skirts, designed by the Italian artistic duo and Mettel contributors Mario Paglino and Gianni Grossi.
 
The exhibits also include dolls from the UK-based Silkstone’s Lingerie Model and Fashion Model collections.
 
Reigning in the international toy market for more than five decades, the making of Barbie doll is believed to be inspired from the famous German doll called Bild Lilli.
