Barbie for big girls.

The Lure of Bellissima Couture

I am headed to Florida in a couple of days for the Fashion Royalty convention and my thoughts have turned to what I am hoping to find at convention.  I am always on the lookout for OOAK clothing for the girls so Hilda of Bellissima Couture’s room will be a definite first stop for me.  It helps that she is one of my dearest doll friends so it’s not just the clothes but her fabulous self that is the draw for me.  I snagged a couple of her creations at Barbie convention and her last online show and wanted to share them here.  Her fashions evoke the feel of 1950’s couture so I was inspired to have my monogram trio Envied, Passionate and Bemused model her work.  Hope you enjoy!
