The packaging for the Fashion Avenue Matchin’ Styles line gets a slight re-design this year. They have a different inside of package background, white with grey pencil line scenes of a bedroom and a coat rack style mannequin with tables to “hold” the accessories. The big difference is in the back of package design for Party, Evening Wear, Matchin’ Styles, Ken, and Lingerie. Gone are the “runway” or “snapshot” designs. Instead there is more of a checklist feel to the design with fashion line names at the top and the fashions in a long column, but there are so many fashions missing that they can’t all fit on the back. That’s understandable because there are so many more fashions but then why choose this design. When the fashions switch to a new package design next year there are still columns of fashions lines, but they are mixed up and without the line names it looks much better. There’s also an increase in “chip board” or very thin cardboard accessories. As an adult collector I have gained a whole new appreciation for these. I want to write an article about this one day, and part of my long term plans for this website is to scan and upload printable versions of these accessories.

Cute matching fashions for Barbie and Kelly, Ken and Tommy dolls. Girls will love dressing their favorite sisters and brothers in matching outfits. Barbie and Shelly are dressed in matching outfits for parties, sports and going out! Ken and little brother Tommy have new matching clothes too.
