At this time, Flight of Fashion™ Barbie® Doll is expected to ship in January 2021. We're so excited that she'll be making her way to you in the not-too-distant future, and we hope you see from these photos how awesome this first Doll Design Showdown winner has turned out. That's a credit to YOU as well, because she was selected by your votes! 

We've shared the sections below titled What Is the Doll Design Showdown? and How to Vote for in the Doll Design Showdown in previous articles, and we'll leave them here for your future reference. Meanwhile, keep an eye on your email to be notified of more updates, as well as news about the next Doll Design Showdown. (Make sure you're getting our emails by checking your email preferences.

What Is the Doll Design Showdown?

Barbie® Signature will manufacture and offer the Doll Design Showdown winning doll, chosen from pre-selected designs and prototypes by Barbie® fans. Anyone can participate, but we will only offer this doll for sale to Barbie® Signature Platinum and Gold Status members.

We will conduct two polls, each lasting two weeks, in which anyone may vote for their preference of the offered choices. You may vote only once per poll. Be sure to vote before each poll closes! (Learn more about the designer, Angel Kent.)

When the final round of voting has been concluded, the winning choices will be used to manufacture the doll. Placing your votes is NOT a commitment to purchase the resulting doll, and voting in the polls is not required to purchase the resulting doll (but you must be a Barbie® Signature Platinum or Gold Status member to purchase the doll).

In the final quarter of 2019, we will offer the winning Doll Design Showdown doll to Barbie® Signature Platinum and Gold Status members. Orders will be taken for approximately four weeks, and we will produce enough quantities to match the number of orders we receive – every Platinum and Gold Status member will have the opportunity to order and receive one. This means the item is made-to-order; made-to-order items may not reach you for approximately one (1) year after placing your order. Further details will be available when the doll is offered.

Additionally, a minimum of 1,500 pre-orders are required for the winning doll to go into production. If the minimum pre-order threshold is not met, the doll will not go into production, and all pre-orders will be refunded.

How to Vote in the Doll Design Showdown

1. Review the calendar to see when voting opens and closes for the two phases. (NOTE: voting is now closed.)

2. Membership was not required to vote. You would simply click the “Vote Now” link to be taken to the survey. (NOTE: with voting closed, the "Vote Now" link has been removed.)

3. On the survey page, you would read the instructions, then place your vote. (NOTE: You could only vote once per phase, and once cast, your vote couldn't be changed – so you had to consider carefully before placing your vote!)

4. Finally, you would check in at Barbie® Signature a few weeks after the polling phases end to see how the voting turned out. Now, don’t miss your chance to be a part of a new Barbie® creation, and pre-order the winner today!

 

Please note: The dolls, fashions, and accessories depicted in the above images are design prototypes. Final production design, colors, and textures may vary slightly. Product subject to availability.

Thank you for the information. Sad I wont be able to purchase her. I just renewed my Barbie platinum membership. In the future I will make sure I pre-order any of the dolls that I want to add to my collection.

I just join platinum membership, guess join too late to be able to preorder this. Seems I can’t even order the other signature ones too like Enchantment Barbie, Water sprite, etc.

Received today and disappointed! This is the first time I have been so disappointed that I am returning something.   The dress has no finishing. Its just cut, The front of the dress does not lay correctly. Its literally pulling as if it is too small. ..for the price it unacceptable. One of the earrings looks broken and hanging on to the base by a slight bend. The wings look nice but smaller than expected.

Wasn’t offered a chance to purchase this doll even though I am a platinum member. Any chance of still getting her?
