"I also meet fellow designers: Dorothy Shue who had started as a puppeteer in the movie industry, Aileen Zublin, who had made a name for herself as a fashion designer in Switzerland, and Kay Carter, who, like Dorothy, also came from the movies, having worked under the legendary fashion designer Adrian, whose glamorous work had been made famous in films like 1939's The Women."

Who does not remember My Fair Lady? The story of an English teacher who tries to turn one of the most famous flower girls in Hollywood history, played by Audrey Hepburn, into a noble lady will sound familiar to all of you. Given this success and before Mattel launched the Timeless Treasures line, Barbie wanted to put on the wonderful dresses from the movie designed by Cecil Beaton.
In 1965 Mattel introduced his audience to a friend of Skipper with whom she shared clothes and a nickname in tune with the fashion of the 60s, Skooter. But Skooter was somewhat familiar, in fact, her face was suspiciously similar to the face of another doll that Mattel had launched two years before, Charmin Cathy.
