I’m a fan of the “Dolls of the World” Collection that was produced in the 1980s and 1990s. I’m always interested in other cultures. They are so exiting. I already had several DOTW dolls from the 1990s that I bought back then. I liked them because their look was different in comparison to other Barbie dolls. I’m not such a big fan of traditional dresses but I liked most dresses that the DOTW dolls wore. I’m not informed if these dresses are 100% authentic or not but I think this topic is not so important.
As a German I would never wear a Traditional dress because to me they are not fashionable. It’s often hard to do trivial tasks in such a dress like going to cycle. I prefer to wear practical clothes. Nevertheless it doesn’t mean that I reject them completely. I really like Traditional dress for the DOTW because it’s a thing of understanding other cultures. Morocco has still something mystic… hard to explain… maybe the magic of the orient that fascinates me.
