Students in a Barbie World

On Fridays, I teach back-to-back fashion design classes. It’s really fun coming up with activities and challenges for them to do, while also getting in my two-cents of fashion history that I love so much. So today we learned about Rococo fashion, with my second class getting REALLY enthusiastic about how exactly Marie Antoinette lost her head.

We only had 7 barbie dolls (well, 6 barbie dolls and one really creepy Hannah Montana doll), so some of my studnts worked in teams. Solo or team work though, they came up with some really cute rococo-inspired fashion for their dolls.

Next week, if all goes well (meaning that Joanns ships my order!) we’ll be making Halloween-print skirts! I’m excited.
