  1. I loved Barbie as a young girl, and it’s no doubt part of why I love designing gowns to this day!

    I love Barbie dolls. I got my first own Barbie doll when I was about 7 – and bought my first one, saved up from my pocket money, when I was about 10. I did collect Barbie dolls for a certain time, but stopped before my apartment could look like the one of a Barbie doll toy store. I still have about 20 dolls, Barbies and Kens, but they’re only here for sentimental reason.
    What an amazing article, Sharla!! I love it!!
