Madrid Fashion Doll Show Convention 2016

The Madrid Fashion Doll Show Convention–Day 3 The Salesroom

The last day of convention is full of lovely sales room goodies Smile  But before we get into those, I wanted to show the promotional images from two of the auction items displayed last night.  These items will be auctioned off on Ebay in the coming weeks.  Stay tuned to Rogier’s blog for information on when those items are up and available for bidding.

Carlyle Nuera released these images on his Instagram and FB page of the glorious design he did.

Now on to the Madrid Fashion Doll convention sales room!

Artist Creations brought some beautiful dolls.

 

And Magia2000 brought some stunners as well.

I believe this beautiful lady went home with someone we know.

And with these final images, I pass the baton back to Rogier for Dutch Fashion Doll World.  Rogier will be blogging for me in about a month as I travel to Chicago for the Integrity Toy Convention.   Wishing you safe and easy travel back to your home my friend.  It has been a pleasure and honor to sit in the editor chair these past few days.

The Madrid Fashion Doll Show Convention–Gala Dinner continued…

I forgot to mention a few things about the centerpiece in the previous post.

The gold Indian inspired 3D frame around the doll was designed and fabricated by Rogier Corbeau of Dutch Fashion Doll World.  The mandala carpet beneath the doll was made by Maria Vergara Bea.   This entire centerpiece was sponsored by Douglas Martinez from the Harrisbourg doll Club.  Beautiful work everyone!!!

The Gala dinner by all accounts was a glorious and fun affair.

And the convention was not done handing out the gifts! From the Madrid Fashion Doll Convention organizers:

“Bollywood nights in Madrid”

“This doll is made to celebrate our fourth convention. She has been designed and made by Mon-Lew Designs.   She has a rich combination of fabrics and colors.

A special embroidery was made for her.

She is wearing all kinds of Jewelry.

In Bollywood more is the best so she has it all.

The Madrid Fashion Doll Show Convention–Day 2

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.

Conventioneers were given option to attended the OOAK artist cocktail party given by Sebastian Atelier.  There were some beautiful OOAK creations to look through and for a lucky few, purchase.
