'02 and '03 Retro Barbie Fashions

2002 Barbie Fashion Avenue B3366

While rearranging doll boxes, I stumbled upon three boxed Barbie fashions purchased several years ago that I had long forgotten.  The pants of the fashion above have a mock patchwork pattern -- so 1970s.

2003 Barbie "Style" B8268

The above denim fashion is modeled by Generation Girl Nikki on the back of the box, which includes illustrations of other fashions in this line.

2003 Barbie "Trend" B8251

The third and final fashion above is reminiscent of the 1960s-1970s flower power craze and includes bell bottom pants, a brown faux suede jacket, a hobo purse, and brown platform shoes.  More flower power and bell-bottomed fashions are illustrated on the back of the "Trend" box.

These fashions are a bit of fashion history recaptured by Mattel in 2002 and 2003, and re-recaptured by me  today.
