Identifying Barbie Doll Vintage Clothes 1959  The first Barbie label was Barbie ™ and with #1 Barbie doll shoes, with holes on the bottom to fit on the stand, increases an outfits value by 20%, later the label was changed to Barbie .  There were twenty-three outfits for Barbie in 1959 including her original swimsuit. Three rare clothing outfits were only produced for one year in 1959 Gay Parisienne, Easter Parade and Roman Holiday which is why they are so valuable.
