“Prettie” stands for P(ositive) R(espectful) E(nthusiastic) T(ruthful) T(alented) I(nspiring) E(xcellent).

These are the Prettie Girl Tween Scene dolls smaller versions of the One World Projects Prettie Girls designed by Stacey Mcbride-Irby.

As a child Stacey consistently played with dolls. Barbie was her favorite. She loved mixing and matching her clothes, and styling her hair. Not long after Stacey stopped playing with Barbie™ dolls at the age of 13, she made the decision to enter the fashion world. She started sketching fashion and going to the library and checking out books about fashion.

Stacey was a Project Designer for Mattel™ in El Segundo and was with the company for 15 years. She is the creator of the So In Style™ line of African-American Barbie™ dolls which were released in 2009. While at Mattel, Stacey was tapped to design the sorority Barbie, Celebrating the Centennial year of Alpha Kappa Alpha, the first African-American Greek Sorority, founded in 1908 at Howard University in Washington, D.C. She designed a one of a kind take on the 1980’s Black Barbie. She also designed some of the 2010 Barbie career dolls, including Pet Vet Barbie, Rock Star Barbie and Bride Barbie.

More recently her work includes a line of multicultural dolls (Prettie Girl and Prettie Girl Tween Scene) for the One World Doll Project being sold online and in stores.

Prettie Girls and Prettie Girls Tween Scene are representative of 5 different nationalities. Mcbride-Irby’s doll line also features limited edition dolls of model Cynthia Baily.

Stacey’s motto is, “A happy, inspired childhood creates happy, inspired and powerful women.” She also loves the Lord with all her heart. She knows that without God that none of her accomplishments and success would be possible.
