In this ensemble, Barbie® doll's fashion designs were imaginative and colorful and all her clients love them! She tied up two black and white illustrations (3 on each sheet) of her designs in her own green lined black portfolio with "Barbie, Fashion Designer" imprinted in white. She looked intelligent and efficient in black-rimmed glasses and a red linen suit. Her sheath skirt was topped by a short-sleeved jacket with red and white striped facing that matched her halter body blouse. Contrast was found in the accessories: blue straw open crown hat with stripe lining matching her body blouse, matching blue straw belt lined in red. Navy open-toe heels finished her "dressed for success" look!
