Nigerian designer Mowalola chosen to dress Barbie for 60th anniversary

In honour of the 60th anniversary of popular children’s doll Barbie, Vogue has commissioned six young fashion designers to dress the iconic doll in their signature styles.

One those chosen is Nigerian designer, Mowalola Ogunlesi known for her eponymous hallucination-like style.

Mowalola launched the brand nearly two years ago, and has since styled Solange for Dazed Magazine, Skepta’s hazy Pure Water video, Nike’s Naija World Cup kit launch and Grammy-winning rapper, Drake, who was spotted wearing a custom Mowalola jacket.

Now, for the brand’s latest dose of international acclaim, Mowalola got to dress Barbie in her signature style, which is best described as free-spirited. This certainly translates to Barbie’s latest look – a neon green tie-dye co-ord, part of her S/S20 collection.

Speaking about her designs and her Barbie to Vogue, Mowalola says:

Mine is a world where everyone is free in terms of what they wear, in terms of how they think, and my women aren’t threatened by anyone – they are taking back their power.

She is a Mowalola superhero – strong, captivating and ready to have a really good time. I want to be wherever she’s going.”
