Lady M reopening promises a more sensorial experience
Last Tuesday, Lady M reopened its 2,734- sq. ft. flagship boutique in Singapore’s Orchard Central mall with the promise of bigger and better things to come for their patrons. The famed New York City dessert patisserie welcomed guests to the event with an interior refresh that aims to redefine dining along their renowned Mille Crêpe, delicate cakes and other favourites. To complete the sensorial experience, the art installations will change to match certain seasons and festivities, making it more exciting for all the boutique's visitors.
Barbie now comes with a wheelchair and a prosthetic leg
Barbie has always been an empowering figure for young kids because she depicts a woman who can 'be anything' with regards to future careers. Still, that didn't stop people from criticising the Mattel doll in the past when it comes to their depiction of the blonde-hair-blue-eyed beauty. But hey, they know how to listen. From creating curvier dolls of different body types to diversifying their dolls' skin colour and creating Barbie dolls representative of many significant women throughout history, now they're packing on their Fashionista collection with one doll in a wheelchair and another with a prosthetic leg. Many people are now praising Barbie for this initiative and hope that considering she is still the most popular doll worldwide, they would further expand their doll designs.
