THIS IS THE OLD PAGE. TO SEE THE NEW PAGE, WHICH IS CURRETNLY BEING WORKED ON, GO TO FASHIONISTAS.
Fashionistas are a series of dolls that began in 2009. There are two types, the 'characters' (Sassy, Sweetie, Wild, Glam, etc...) whose outfits reflected their personallities and the 'Barbie & friends' (Barbie, Raquelle, Teresa, etc..) the modern fashionistas.
Wave 1 released in 2009 and the dolls were Wild, Cutie, Glam, Sassy, Artsy, Girly and Hottie Boy. (Latter called Cutie Boy) A game released on Barbie.com where you selected a Fashionista girl, (excluding Hottie / Cutie boy) decorated the set and took 'photos' for a 'magazine.' An app was also released, but is no longer avaliable. A store on Barbiegirls was released, featuring a quiz and Fashionistas outfits and necklaces.
Wave 2 was released in 2010 and was desgined by Lilly Martinez. The characters were Sassy, Cutie, Sporty, Sweetie and Sporty Boy.
Swappin' Styles was released in 2010/11 and consisted of Sporty, Sweetie, Artsy, Glam, Sassy, Cutie, Cutie Boy and Sporty Boy. There was also a less popular mini-wave, Gift Sets. These dolls replaced the Wave 1 dolls in the Fashionista game, but the actual game remained the same. A new website was created, which, along with the game, came with wallpapers, an app, a quiz and more. As new waves were developed, those fashions and dolls were added onto the app. A webisode was also created, but was stopped after episode 5. It seemed other episodes were created because at the starting theme, it showed small sections of episodes never released. The website is http://www.barbie.com/fashionistas/#/PhotoShoot/
