LIFE IN PLASTIC, IT’S FANTASTIC

All those who complain that there isn’t enough pink at FIT should please proceed to the lobby of the Pomerantz Art and Design Center. There, Mattel has teamed up with FIT to create “The Pink Issue,” an homage to Barbie from five Art and Design majors.

Hue was quite fond of the intricately decorated dollhouses dreamed up by Interior Design students. A dream house indeed! This bathroom, if scaled to human size, would be larger than Hue’s whole apartment.

The bubble bath looks positively inviting, though Hue wonders who’s going to clean up the mess on the floor. (Sorry, Ken.)

This bedroom looks like fun for the feet… but is it pink enough? One thing’s for sure: Barbie’s friends can spill as much rosé as they like onto the rug, with no one the wiser.

Hue finds this dress, seemingly made out of shopping bags, to die for. Barbie would light up the red carpet. But the fantasy would be crushed once she hopped into a cab. She’d have to walk home, unless she came in a Segway.
