"Creating a shoe collection for Barbie has always been my dream project, but getting to be a part of her embracing flats for the first time made it extra exciting, and deeply personal," Webster told us. "I love that this concept strikes a balance between dreams and reality - the idea of getting Barbie in some hi-tops and setting her loose in East London instantly appealed."
Barbie by Sophia Webster comprises nine styles: six for adults, including two pairs of trainers, one pair of flat sandals and three pairs of heels; and three mini-me versions for children, and will launch in Selfridges nationwide and Webster´s website next Thursday, August 27.
But Webster has clearly caught the Barbie bug. Next month she is launching a limited-edition doll which will be encased in a specially designed box and will be wearing a miniature pair of Barbie by Sophia Webster Riko hi-top glitter trainers.
