Thank you for looking at my listing up for grabs we have the increasingly hard to find and extremely limited edition Barbie Doll. YSL Yves Saint Laurent "Mondrian Mod Dress" Platinum Label Barbie Doll. Never removed from her shipper, item number GMC97 from 2018. When platinum label Barbie's were really platinum label in my opinion with Mattel producing no more than 1000 units worldwide, where as of now PL is considered anything under 5k.This beautiful, mod and cute very limited edition Barbie Doll is a piece of fashion history. Designed in 1961 from the genius mind of YSL for his "Mondrian Collection".
The actual dress was made from a light weight wool and was an instant mod hit, she was featured on the cover of French Vogue in 1965. Even though the shift dress is a fairly simple shape the construction of this dress was far from simple with the color blocking and intersecting seams along with a clean finish neckline, armholes and hem.
Also you see no stitching on the outside of the dress which is no easy feat and they even mastered the construction for Barbie too just like the actual dress, Bravo! I know as I'm a fashion designer, have been since 2002 upon graduation. Interesting tidbit my first job right out of college was as Bob Mackie's assistant designer which was a dream come true to say the least.
I was super lucky to have had the opportunity to work by his side for the entire design process from initial sketches(sent to Mattel)to finished Barbie dolls during my time with him. He knew very well I collected Barbie's so every bday/holiday I would always receive a few of his Barbie's from his personal collection. If anyone is interested in Mackie Barbie's please let me know as I have the entire collection(in some cases 4 or more dupes of ONE DOLL lol). If you have any questions or would like additional photos please let me know as they are a part of her description.I do apologize for the glare as I didn't want to remove her plastic cover guard, hence the glare. ALL REASONABLE OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED AS IT NEVER HURTS TO MAKE AN OFFER. All items come from my smoke free, pet free and climate controlled doll/collectible room.
