And they had an auction with some amazing dolls by Japanese artists.

Of course there was a salesroom where you could buy the most cool Japanese Barbie items.

But the most exciting thing for me is that they had an convention doll donated by Mattel.

It’s a gorgeous variation on Fiorella. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the red hair and her total black outfit is so chique !

I think her edition is very limited because this convention had 110 places.

Here are some other pictures that I found this morning.
