Fashion recycles Barbie, Stephen Sprouse and Supermodels...

In just the same week, fashion heralds (again!) the Stephen Sprouse grafitti bags (and oh yes, there is a waitlist for the bags), Barbies 50th anniversary and now former supermodel Tatjana Patitz, is attempting a comeback?.

The German-born model, who featured on the iconic 1990 Vogue cover deemed to be the watershed moment in the supermodel era alongside Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford, has revealed that she "wouldn't say no" to stepping back into the fashion limelight now that her only child, Jonah, is getting older.

The industry has changed a lot since she left, she adds.

"There's a sea of girls. It's almost like a fast-food market - a girl does well for a few seasons, then she's forgotten. Before, it would take you a few seasons to get going and it was more possible to have longevity."

Which girls???


In Barbie news, coinciding with the 50th anniversary plans that will see Barbie have her very own catwalk show in New York, the plastic beauty will sponsor shows of Ilincic and Scutt in the UK; and to say thank you both designers have created a special outfit, just for her.
"I couldn't wait to dress Barbie," says queen of romance Ilincic. "She's such an iconic model and the perfect front row show guest."

Seriously, we hope the above is said tongue in cheek but even more so, we hope is the bottom quote from Richard Dickson, general manager and senior vice president of Barbie:
"There has never been a better time for Barbie to reinforce her high fashion credentials and with Danielle Scutt and Roksanda Ilincic, alongside our global fashion celebrations, she is ready to embrace her 50th year in style."
