She is yet to design the collection that will debut in February, but says it will now certainly reflect the new way in which she will be showing.
As we reported last month, Barbie, who will be 50 years young next year, will be marking her golden anniversary with a live show at NY Fashion Week, and today Christian Louboutin has confirmed he will be designing a shoe especially for the show.
The Barbie Pantone 219 Pink pump will be worn by each of the 50 models who will parade Barbie-inspired outfits in the show. They will be designed by a clutch of yet-to-be-named iconic American designers.
Louboutin's motivation behind designing the shoe was simple, 'I guess I always had a little "girlie" side who liked Barbie,' he said. 'Barbie needs to wear great shoes because every girl needs to wear great shoes,' he added.
We couldn't agree more!
