To celebrate Barbie’s 60th birthday, students from the Costume & Performance Design course at Arts University Bournemouth created a full-sized, real-life version of the very first Barbie doll from 1959 on Bournemouth beach. She’s wearing the original black and white swimsuit, sporting her signature ponytail and standing in a replica box.
