Guest Post: Designer Robert Best Hits Australian Fashion Week Pt. 1!

I was super excited to arrive in Sydney last Sunday to help launch the new range of Barbie Basics as part of Rosemount Australian Fashion Week! As soon as I landed I picked up an issue of Grazia Magazine that had the most adorable Barbie Basics fashion spread. You can see all the behind the scenes action here.

Also while I was down under I attended a few shows to check out the local designers and see what Barbie may like for her new Spring & Summer wardrobe.

First stop for the week was the MAC RAFW launch party. I was completely wowed by the paper couture dresses made for the event by N.Y. designer, Zaldy Goco. I can totally see Barbie wearing a paper dress! My personal favorite was a meringue-like confection, so good you could have eaten it...

Also it was wonderful to bump into Kirstie Clements, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Australia, whom I met while I was in town last year at the Barbie Forever exhibition in Melbourne. Kirstie introduced me to internationally renowned blogger Tim Blanks from style.com so I invited him along to the May 4th Barbie Basics launch.
