1987 The Outfits

By 1987 the new dolls and clothing had become just far too tacky. It would be easy to blame it on the fashions of the times, but Mattel managed to produce much lovelier outfits throughout the 1970s and earlier 1980s, despite the often more outlandish fashions of those days. Personally I blame it on the shift throughout the years of toy manufacturers in general from providing children with a well-made product which would inspire, instruct and stimulate them, to simply and cheaply ‘Giving Them What They Want.

The European-release Ready To Wear/Pret-A-Porter outfits are about the best from 1987, #3307 especially. The Concert Tour Fashions outfit produced for the Derek and Ken Rocker dolls can be found in the section 1986-87 Derek & Ken Rockers.
