In the Spring 2008 issue of Barbie Collector you will find the lovely new Silkstone® dolls inspired by a Parisian sketchbook and the lineup could not be lovelier. Continuing with the springtime theme, what would the season be without a fashionable bonnet or two. Enjoy some time with Byron Lars, the designer behind the remarkable Chapeaux™ Collection of dolls, in a Behind the Scenes profile.

From the sculpts debut in 1972 to its appearance in the 2008 Top Model series, this article has it covered.
