Here is a sneak peak of my exclusive fashion for this year's Barbie convention called 'Fifty, Fitted and Fine'. Appropriately named, it features a fitted trumpet gown of black faille with a nude lined lace bodice, scattered with beading and finished with a bow. The back of the gown features an inset panel of beautiful beaded lace. Pink shoes, fishnet gloves, purse and drop earrings complete the ensemble.
I'll have only 100pcs with me at convention (the other 200pcs are arriving later in July), the factory was busy getting the other convention surprise ready that everyone will just have to wait and see what I'm referring to. :)
When the 100pcs are sold, I'll be taking names on a list to make sure conventioneers get first dibs on this beautiful outfit. Also in room sales, starting Monday night, I'll have a fun satin sheath (limited to only 150pcs) featuring a print perfectly suited for Barbie which includes hot pink shoes. Also in room sales (and the salesroom if any are left), I'll have some of our older sheath sets, some boxed fashions, last ones of some fashions. some shoe paks as well as table gift shoes, all pre-boxed in groups of ten, perfect for last minute table gifts. Still more news to come.....

2009 Barbie Convention Silent Auction
For the silent auction this year, I'm entering a collaboration between myself and Rob Thompson of Robsdolls. He did this fabulous re-root and repaint to create a Barbie 'Dovima' . The display for our piece called "In the Bookshop" was my salesroom display last year from Kansas City, I had SO many comments on it, it seemed like a great chance to donate it help raise money for charity. I hope everyone coming to DC will take a peek and write down a bid or two you never know, you might win :)
2009 Barbie Convention Raffle Donation
I know its been a while but I've been busy getting ready for Barbie Convention, we're leaving (driving down) on the 4th of July. Lots in store and for sale in my room as well as the salesroom. Be sure to come by my room (meet my wife and daughter) and see the latest from Dressmaker Details. More info closer to the date but I think collectors will really like them.
This is what I put together for the raffle room at convention this year. All neaty packed away in a golden mock-croc valise. I'm looking forward to seeing the other donations this year, I'll have to get some tickets as soon as I can.
