Barbie Jewellery

Currently at university we are putting on a huge fashion show to raise money to help the fashion students to showcase their work next year. I will make a more detailed post on the whole show when it has been, but I wanted to show you a couple of the necklaces we have put together.

The theme of the whole show is 'Freak Like Me' promoting individuality with the underlying message that everyone should be accepted for who they are. A percentage of the profits will be donated to an anti bullying charity! I am on the styling team and I have seen a lot of Barbie jewellery around at the moment, and i think it looks great and is so simple and yet really effective for the catwalk.

The theme is split into three categories: Freak Doll/Fetish/Alien. This is one of the dolls created into a necklace simple with ribbon around her neck a string glove and will be used on the catwalk for fetish.


These ones have colour in their hair and will be used on the Freak Doll section on the catwalk. We will then sell the dolls on the night to raise more money for anti-bullying charities. 

We managed to get in the newspaper to gain more awareness on the event.


These are a few of the other jewellery that I was inspired by.






The event will be on the 27th March at the Black Bottom Club in Northampton. It would be great if any of you could make it.
