Being a Barbie Designer

   It's been a long WHILE, but I wanted to add a recent article the spanish news "El Pais" came out with. An article on me working at mattel as a Barbie doll designer, truly a dream job. I'm pretty excited and honored I was given a chance to be part of such an amazing opportunity. I wanted to share some pictures we took at Mattel. It's such a great and fun job, challenging, of course, but I get to work with some amazing talented people, and it's truly rewarding to be able to be part of such an inspiring legacy as Barbie.

The fashionable guy on some of the pics is my fabulous friend and talented colleague Carlyle Nuera. I'm lucky enough to be on the Barbie Design Team with him, he's an OH-mazing Barbie and Ken doll designer.

"Los Angeles, Jan 1 (IANS/EFE) When Neysa Bové migrated from Spain to the US, she was a little girl with three Barbies in her suitcase -- today, as a professional fashion designer, she creates new wardrobes for the classic doll.
"I design Barbies in evening dress so she looks elegant, as if she is going to a party, and others in one-piece bathing suits," Bové said.

The designer creates her elegant, stylish Barbie clothing in El Segundo city in California.

"I work in the Average Barbies department, where we create clothes fit for a normal person, which is different from our Fantasy department, where they dress up Barbies like sirens, fairies and other imaginary characters," the 27-year-old designer said.

Bové, the youngest of three children of a couple from Barcelona, who in 1996 won the US Visa Lottery and migrated to Phoenix, Arizona, said creativity and design are familiar subjects.

"I started drawing from the time I could walk, because my father, Quim Bove, is a contemporary painter," the stylist said.

Bové studied at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, in Los Angeles till 2007 and took some classes at the California Institute of the Arts, where she attended classes with her sister Lorelay, who currently works in the visual development at Disney.

Animal Series

Here's a 6 piece digital animal series I designed. Had to design my favorite animal the fox of course! And wanted to add some other fun ones :) My favorite one ended up being the llama, because she's girly and loves to dress up like me! :)

Mini Fashion Paintings

Here's a nice little update with my mini painting series I did, they're all gouache. They're 3X5" pretty teeny tiny, but very fun to paint! I included so far a fashion hipster, a fashionista, and a very "bougie" gal. 
They're all about different fashion styles, with their corresponding fashionable accessories, every girl has a favorite bag, or favorite drink :) Enjoy!

Our DIY wedding

Finally putting up the wedding invites, wedding signs, wedding place cards... basically everything! My husband and I collaborated together on this beautiful project! We had our wedding in beautiful Cancun Mexico, on July 1st 2013 :) our theme was really all about whimsical typography with pastry colors, and using a sea-foam green or pistachio color as the main thematic color (I looooveee pistachio everything, our wedding cake was even pistachio flavor.. yum!) check out the pics!

Talk about DIY, we brought everything and I mean EVERYTHING to our Cancun destination wedding, I even sewed our chevron table cloth runners!

We made signs for the tables and glittered them, we made our cake topper with striped paper straws in pastel colors, and even made the oh so popular paper wedding tassel garlands to go along the chairs in the wedding ceremony. It was all themed out with mexican "papel picado" which is basically tissue paper cut-out and used as a garland decoration.

Hope you enjoy :)
