NYC September 2, 2012
Stephen Burrows has dressed quite the glamour squad during his 40+ years in the fashion industry. Notably: Iman, Cher, Beverly Johnson, Liza Minnelli,Hilary Duff, Lauren Hutton, Barbra Streisand, Sofia Vergara, Jerry Hall, and Pat Cleveland. FASHIONREPORTERS eagerly awaits Mr. Burrows SS13 fashion show in NYC. During this presentation, Stephen Burrows will debut his new doll for Matels’ lconic female “BARBIE”. “PAZETTE”, a collaboration between doll maker Linda Kyaw and Burrows, conjures up images of the decadent hedonism, high-octane drama, and unabashed sexiness of Studio 54 era fashions. Unlike previous “ethnic” Barbies that just looked like the standard Caucasian doll with a deep tan, this one actually looks black — from the deep mahogany skin tone to the full, lush lips. It should go without saying that this isn’t the type of Barbie doll you’d gift to a toddler — unless, of course, you want said tot to bang this collector’s item on the floor or take a pair of miniature scissors and a jar of glitter to the doll’s couture ensemble.
