The upcoming show will present a retrospective of the fabulous creations of the most-famous-dolls-of-all, Barbie. From the iconic dresses of the 1960s to the haute couture gowns, the fashionistas' outfits always echoed the sense of style of women over the World, in small sizes. Little girls knew what they were doing!
Michael Tintiuc has a look that is not easily forgotten. Between his trademark long, dark brown hair, doe-like eyes and soft, sensuous features, it isn't a surprise that this young man found himself working hard as the male model whose presence would demand worldwide attention on both the catwalk and in print.
Velvet boleros, satin torero costumes, magnificent capes and mantelets, cashmere stoles, lace mantillas, dresses, samples of embroidery and trimming, all these lavish items figure in profusion in this collection assembled by the the great master of couture and generously donated to the museum by his family.
