Livin' La Vida Barbie

Posted: Updated:

For 35 years she designed some of the most iconic Barbie dolls... Carol Spencer stopped by Good Day LA along with our legal analyst, Robin Sax to discuss the legacy of the famed young girls toys.

To celebrate her Anniversary as Barbie's fashion designer, Carol Spencer chooses her "Dream Dozen" from over 300 dolls and 5000 ensembles she created in more than 35 years of Livin' La Vida Barbie.

A graduate of Minneapolis College of Art & Design, Spencer was a sportswear designer when she put in an application with a Chicago recruiter and then went to Los Angeles to try her luck at Mattel headquarters.  Which is how she got an interview appointment on the same day at the same time in two different cities. The rest is Barbie history.
