Kim Culmone
SVP, Global Head of Design Barbie & Fashion Dolls at Mattel


Committed to a creative process that emphasizes purpose-driven, human-centric design - Kim sets the creative vision for Barbie and fashion doll design teams at Mattel. Featured in the Hulu documentary Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie, in 2015 she led the design of three new Barbie body types - curvy, tall and petite. This bold product reinvention generated 5 billion media impressions, led to a TIME cover, was named one of the “Top 25 Inventions of 2016” by the magazine and received the coveted “Doll of the Year Award” from the Toy Industry Association. Her design leadership has contributed to Barbie being the most diverse doll brand in the world.
