One of the first articles I did for Fashion Doll Quarterly Magazine (www.fdqmedia.com), was about Barbie and her many travels in the early years of her inception. Being a high fashion model meant Barbie needed to travel the globe and look her very finest at all times! Her wardrobe reflected this, as did many of her accessories. Here is a look back at the photos used exclusively for that issue.
