After reviewing the silent auction, it was time for luncheon with Barbie.  Since the festival was centered around the theme “Cocktails in Paris” attendees were encouraged to bring their hats.  There were some really inventive and creative ones.

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!!

The second day of festivities in Madrid began with presentations and an  OOAK artist cocktail by Sebastian Atelier.  Rogier took some great photos of these events!

Carlyle Nuera gave a presentation from Mattel.  No photos were allowed at this event after the introduction.  It looks like he was signing his fabulous sketches that people received in their registration bags before the presentation .

Ibrahim Ismail also gave a presentation on Bollywood cinema but sadly, I do not have any images of that.  I’m sure it was fabulous.

The Madrid Fashion Doll Show Convention–Fashion Show

I may only speak for myself but I feel many would agree that the fashion show is always a fun part of any doll convention…or rather Barbie convention.  I am always amazed at the skill of collectors and their ability to produce a doll design in real people scale.  The attention to detail that many of these collectors go to is really intense.    Here are some quick photos from this years Madrid convention.

And of course, each show has to have it’s own set of paparazzi…
