I would use multiple shades to color her hair and give color to her cheeks and lips and then finish her off with a fabulous haircut and style. Only feeling satisfied after Barbie was sporting the latest gowns and accessories, I would tailor and sometimes create for her. My mother didn't appreciate her sacrificed makeup and garments, but it cultivated my love of fashion and my passion for this industry.”
