Spanish designer creates Latin-style Barbie

Los Angeles, Jan 1 : When Neysa Bove migrated from Spain to the US, she was a little girl with three Barbies in her suitcase -- today, as a professional fashion designer, she creates new wardrobes for the classic doll.

"I design Barbies in evening dress so she looks elegant, as if she is going to a party, and others in one-piece bathing suits," Bove said.

The designer creates her elegant, stylish Barbie clothing in El Segundo city in California.

"I work in the Average Barbies department, where we create clothes fit for a normal person, which is different from our Fantasy department, where they dress up Barbies like sirens, fairies and other imaginary characters," the 27-year-old designer said.

Bove, the youngest of three children of a couple from Barcelona, who in 1996 won the US Visa Lottery and migrated to Phoenix, Arizona, said creativity and design are familiar subjects.

"I started drawing from the time I could walk, because my father, Quim Bove, is a contemporary painter," the stylist said.

Bove studied at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, in Los Angeles till 2007 and learned animation at the California Institute of the Arts, where she attended classes with her sister Lorelay, who currently works in the visual development at Disney.
