See what happens when you play with Barbie – Fashion Week Recap

Barbie

We wanted to share this recap of the Barbie Dream Closet at World MasterCard Fashion Week! Set within the tent at David Pecaut Square, Barbie’s ultimate dream closet was unveiled in the form of a high-tech installation where Toronto fashion stars “dressed up” in Barbie’s most iconic and glamourous outfits from the past five decades.


The See What Happens When You Play with Barbie campaign helps girls to use their imagination, be creative and role-play with Barbie. The 2012 career doll is the Barbie® I Can Be…™ Fashion Designer who wears a chic working outfit with a pincushion on her wrist and a tape measure around her neck. She also comes with a tablet so she can design with the latest technology.


 Enter here to WIN your own Barbie I Can Be… Fashion Designer doll! This contest is now closed.


Other current I Can Be…™ careers include: Nurse, Movie Star, Pet Vet, Paleontologist, Fashion Designer, the Career of the Year and Pilot Barbie.

I founded Mums 'n Chums in 2009 after realizing that the area I live in was drastically underserviced as compared to surrounding areas for support and activities for growing families. Mums 'n Chums grew popular very quickly and I have been dedicated to nurturing that growth through frequent networking, social media engagement and in person meetups. By the end of its first year, Mums 'n Chums had close to 500 members and was receiving regular inquiries from fans outside of its service area, asking when we would be expanding to serve them as well. After much careful research and polling, I expanded the site in May of 2011 to cover the entire North end of the GTA (from Cambridge to Markham), areas I believe are still receiving far less attention than they deserve from other sites and family services. We also changed the focus from small scale local mom and tot meetups to more of an informative purpose, closing down our forum and adding several talented contributors to the blog. We do still offer several large scale family events per year, such as our popular Birthday Bash events and our Holiday Bash in December. Our contests have also become a member favourite, and we strive to offer amazing prizes from trusted brands like Babies R Us, La Roche Posay, Johnson's Baby and many more. In March of 2016, after months of work spent migrating all of the site's content to a new platform, Mums 'n Chums re-launched with its fresh, new look. The changes and expansion have proven a great success and we're still getting inquiries from several other cities within the Greater Toronto Area, whom we have decided to serve as well. I have built this site and its' reputation carefully and look forward to continuing its growth!
