If you’re off to Paris in the coming months, please make sure you visit the Barbie exhibition at Les Arts Decoratifs. Running until 10th September, its the first show of its kind in France – Barbie has never been invited there before…gasp. Barbie is a figure that incites an awful lot of debate. You only have […]
