Campy Couture: Barbie's '70s Rivals Flaunted the Fashions We'd Love to Forget

Little girls want to be fashionable, toy companies want the success of Barbie, and the ‘70s were a mad scramble of clothing trends that did not age well. What this combination brought us are some very odd vintage doll clothes, courtesy of the many Barbie knock-off dolls. Carmen Varricchio & Gerardo Somoza have published the book Doll Junk: Collectible and Crazy Fashions from the ’70s and ’80s, and are celebrating its release with a slideshow of fashion doll abominations of the ‘70s you can see at Collectors Weekly.
