We still love you Barbie!!! All you teenage fashion models and Barbie fans...this one's for you! That classic vintage tee-shirt your mother couldn't peel off you when you were a kid has been reborn into this sexy one-piece design with an overall top and adorable tulle skirtlette that will keep you twirling! We had a little help fine-tuning the design from a few small friends of ours who just couldn't resist helping out with the photos and, thanks to the "girls" you can see that classic quarterback back-style and the partial "Barbie" logo from the original shirt. A collectible vintage Barbie belt and heart-shaped buckle adorns the front with that smile we all love so much. To perfectly accessorize the design, we're sending along a matching vintage Barbie bracelet that we sourced from a collector. (Of course, any Barbie-loving girl knows how important those accessories can be!) And that hand-made tulle skirt around the hips of this design is simply a work of perfection that you'll just love wearing! The suit in the gallery is the one-and-only in size SMALL.
Each one of these custom couture designs is unique and considered as a piece of artwork created by designer Colleen Kelly. The vintage materials and artistic elements that go into creating these one-of-a-kind "swimsuits" were assembled from original collector, art, and memorabilia sources around the globe. Colleen’s 25+ years of swimwear design experience, along with her seasoned talent in styling for the fashion industry, went into each piece. You will find a perfect blending of the vintage logos, embellishments, and graphics of the subject pop culture icons, bands, or artists featured in the design with the sexy, streamlined fitting requirements of the woman’s body. They aren’t "cheap" but they are more than worth the premium price for celebrities, artists, photographers, and customers that need a custom "styled" look to maintain their image.
Some of these items are rare and irreplaceable, which precludes them from being recreated in most cases, as only original items were used. The inherent value, and sometimes fragile nature, of these collector items makes it very difficult to manufacture more than one piece and prohibits us from offering returns, exchanges & etcetera, so all sales are final.
If you need another size than what is shown in the description and we do NOT have the materials on hand right now, we may still be able to source them for you. Please Contact Us and we will check to see if the materials can be made available to make one for you.
