About The One World Doll Project
In her 15 years at Mattel™, Stacey McBride-Irby designed and created countless fashions and concepts for the iconic Barbie® line. Most notably, Stacey created an entire new line for the company, the So In Style™ dolls, the first African-American Barbie dolls by Mattel which, according to Stacey, "more closely represented contemporary girls and young women in the diverse and dynamic urban community". Now she is using her love of doll making and design to create dolls with The One World Doll Project, Inc.
The One World Doll Project has developed an exciting line of multi-cultural and fashion dolls that it expects will have a major impact in the months ahead. The Prettie Girls! OWP doll line is unique in the way they look, their backgrounds and their stories that capture the essence of what every little girl can embrace and relate to. The Prettie Girls! Ms. McBride-Irby, along with the One World Doll Project, believes that little girls and their mothers are looking for images of beauty and fashion that mirror the same colors, shapes and physical characteristics that they themselves possess.
The overall vision of the company is to introduce a new way mainstream dolls are designed, marketed and integrated into the fabric of America. The One World Doll Project's core mission is to make one of the most significant, positive cultural impacts on play and in the doll category in recent history.
