    The Fire Went Wild

    Just like you can’t do Backwoods Barbie without Dolly Parton, you can’t do Nashville without Johnny Cash. His legendary tune Ring of Fire sparked inspiration of a style element we could work with… but we had to do it carefully.

    Going to the Opry

The silhouettes are sassy, the embellishments are twangy, and everything is just a little bit edgy.

    Short & Chic

    There is a lot of unexpected beauty in Backwoods Barbie -- we played with leathers in colors you don’t often see, we made raw-edged denim upscale, and we got edgy with our silhouettes.
