With all the exciting news coming out of Milan during the Italian Doll Convention, we wanted to remind you that Madrid also hosts a wonderful event in September 12-14, coinciding with Madrid Fashion Week! Although today is the deadline for early registration, you can still register for this event by clicking here. The theme is La Dolce Vita, and the organizers promise to host a grand time for attendees. Check out their website by clicking here.
Images are surfacing of the new 75th Anniversary Scarlett and Rhett dolls – beautiful renderings, indeed! These will display nicely with your red Scarlett dress collection, as we reported here.
We’re also thrilled to report the new Barbie Look releases #5-#8 – beauties, all four! Remember, the gray gown #6, is a retailer exclusive.
Images are from Mattel, but they are not appearing on BarbieCollector.com as of yet.
The folks at the Italian Doll Convention have worked long and hard to make their event a mainstay on the doll convention scene…and it’s not hard to see the fabulous results! Now in their fourth year, the IDC event is one to put onto your calendars, but it is very limited and sells out quickly, so plan in advance. This year’s charity auction benefits SOS Villaggi dei Bambini, a benevolent organization dedicated to children’s developmental needs worldwide. CLICK ANY OF THE IMAGES IN THIS POST TO TAKE YOU DIRECTLY TO THE AUCTION.
This year’s charity auction lineup, which you can see and place bids by clicking here, offers the highest of fashion among our favorite makers and fashion dolls. There’s eye candy for everyone…and you can follow the excitement as the bids increase. We ask that our community share news of this auction to all your family and friends who love dolls – the maximum exposure brings the highest proceeds to the charity – and hey, it’s just good, plain fun!
Good Luck to all the artist who donated their time and talent to benefit such a worthy cause – we’ll be watching!!!
Some are new introductions, some are new images…but they all contribute to our ever-loving passion for our doll favorites! Fun news this week…so listen up, oh ye dolly faithful!!!
