Stacey McBride-Irby

The black Barbie was created by Stacey McBride-Irby who is an African-American and veteran Barbie designer. Stacey McBride-Irby was inspired by her six-year-old daughter. She wanted to create dolls that were inspirational and career-minded for young black girls to emulate. In addition, she wanted the young girls to share similar African-American facial features with the dolls.

Maybe...Idk...The designers for The Basic Barbie are a collection of people from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CDFA)

I'm not sure who designed the other black barbies...

Oh, okay...that explains it then.

This doll is not pretty.
Her makeup is wrong, her eyes look like cat eyes and her hair is too short.
