A conversation with one of the original Barbie designers, Carol Spencer
We are so excited to have Carol Spencer, former designer for the Barbie doll on our podcast! We first learned about Carol when she participated in a webinar with National Arts Club. Carol is the author of “Dressing Barbie: A Celebration of the Clothes That Made America’s Favorite Doll and the Incredible Woman Behind Them.” She started working at Mattel in 1963 and created the image we know of as Barbie. She worked there until 1999.
This episode is a great reminder of how fashion reflects the times & what’s happening in the world. You can gather so much information about different points in history simply by looking at the clothes people wore. Another big takeaway from this episode is to never stop learning and always keep up with the times, new technologies and trends. We can’t wait for you to learn all about her incredible career and book in this episode.
