Mowalola Ogunlesi Is The Nigerian Designer Selected To Style The New Barbie Doll

8th August 2019

One of the six designers chosen to style the iconic doll, British Vogue has commissioned Nigerian designer Mowalola Ogunlesi to dress the Barbie Doll in her own signature style.

Already revered in the fashion scene, Mowalola boasts an impressive CV that includes one of the premier shows at London Fashion Week, styling Skepta and Solange Knowles, and Nigeria’s popular World Cup Kit.

Dressing Barbie in a neon-green tie-dye look that’s from her recent SS20 collection, Mowalola described her Barbie look as “… 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.
