The display, located at the Central Galleria, is debuting a series of 24 limited-edition Barbie® dolls, each with stunning hand-crafted designer outfits, inspired by signature looks from the catwalk shows, from a collection which has been developed over 50 years.

The Barbie® Collector exhibition sees the legend in replica outfits of high-end fashion houses such as Hervé Léger, Christian Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhuillier, Versace, Zuhair Murad, Christian Louboutin, and many more.

On September 9-14, little ones can experience the glamorous world of the modern-day rock star with Barbie® Rock’n Royals. Young girls can experiment with sparkle as they get glammed up with nail art at the Barbie Hand Spa, and have fun with temporary Barbie® motif tattoos. A great outing for the younger generation of Barbie® fans, groups of girlie friends can pretend to be a pop star getting ready for a stage show.
