Following previous makeovers from milliner Stephen Jones and designers Roksanda Illincic and Zuhair Murad, Barbie's latest wardrobe revamp has been created by British designer Sadie Williams.

The dolls go on sale at Selfridges on February 14, to coincide with London Fashion Week, at a cost of £120 each. Of the collection, Williams says: "I wanted to create a Barbie gang of ultra princessy tomboys. I've always been a bit of a tomboy, and at the same time I love dressing up.”

A spokesperson for Selfridges told the Daily Mail: "Our exclusive launches with Barbie continue to be a huge source of excitement for us - but this one is especially close to our hearts. We've followed Sadie's work closely since her MA graduate show, and she was one of the real stars of this year's Bright Young Things programme; it's rare to come across a young designer with such a confident and distinctive style that retains real finesse."
