A Sweet Sneak

Sooo…as many of you know Rogier of Dutch Fashion Doll WorldDutch Fashion Doll World and I are attending a special convention this week.  We are in the vibrant metropolis of New York City this week to attend the OOAK Festival. 

One of the first places we visited upon arrival in this beautiful city was Ladurée.

Rogier, Hilda of Bellissima Couture and I all love this Pâtisserie .  It can come as no surprise that this was an inspiration for us as we collaborated on an auction item for this festival.  

This festival has an amazing lineup of artists contributing auction items up for bid at the Friday night auction.

We have been given permission to share a sneak of our auction item for the blog readers!    You are getting to see this image even before the convention attendees!!

Bizuu x Barbie…. This is a show we had to watch.

Just before the show we were teased with some Barbie pictures on Instagram

The show itself was a nice collection. And at the end they showed a mini Barbie collection with 15 looks. The first model came from the sky in a Barbie pattern logo suit.

Here are some pictures from the rest of the collection.

This long summer dress was my favorite look of the show.

Mazarine Blue Doll released a new lady called Gabrielle The Grace. Gabriella is a 16″ fashion BJD with 20 point of articulation.

This is the first time that the designer JungSU Ko from South Korea is using this new face sculpt. Also the body is more natural and realistic then the older bodies he used.

I Love her 60’s inspired fashion and braided updo.

Gabriella is a famous Italian Model from the 60’s. She walked many runways and you can find her on many fashion magazine covers. She tried acting but she wasn’t so good in it. But her fans still loved her

You can now preorder her. Her price is $670 and she will take 2-3 months to ship.
