Barbie Runway at NYFW

Fashion Week devotes itself to the up-and-coming bombshells of the fashion industry, but it also celebrates the iconic social influences that inspire designers. The Fall 2009 NYFW runway was all about pink, commemorating the 50th birthday of the most famous doll in the world, Barbie. Made exclusively for the runway, Louboutin created Barbie Pink pumps that every model donned while on the catwalk. A year later, he produced miniature red-soled pumps for the doll herself to be sold nationwide.
