Roksanda Ilincic To Create Barbie's New Dreamhouse

Forget Taylor Swift's new mansion, news reaches us that Barbie is set to leave her Malibu Dreamhouse and move to our fair city. Yes, the blonde beauty has put her three-storey 8500 sq ft palatial, beachfront home on the market for an eye-watering $25 million and is considering setting up in London. And who better to design her new Dreamhouse than LFW's Roksanda Ilincic?

After bagging a front row seat at the designer's Autumn Winter 2013 show in February, Barbie requested Ilincic to design her new pad. 'Having previously dressed Barbie to commemorate her 50th anniversary, I think I have a good idea how her 21st Century pad should look,' says Roksanda. Meanwhile, SHOWstudio will be creating the virtual doll's house, taking it to fashionable new heights. We can't wait to see the pink-tastic results!
