I adored the dress that she came in originally so it was difficult for me to take it off of her…but I managed…for none other than a Bogue’s Vogues.

No I did not fall into a hole. Well I kind of did and it was called the “Suessical” hole. I was stage manager for my daughter’s school musical so I have been busy coming up with last minute costume additions and teaching tech cues to a bunch of sixth graders…FUN. The shows went off without a hitch and kids and families had a great time. Finally had some time with my beloved Canon today and here is a sneak peak of what is coming to the fashion studio.
Here are a few interesting photos that might give us all a better feel for the direction of the BFMC this year. They are available at http://ph8442.com/site/2012/01/issue-2/

Oh my word!!! If only one could have this set for their own collection. I WOULD DIE! Now….have to figure out how to make my own studio. Audrey…if you are reading this…can you rustle up a few of those french doors for me??!! Are the sketches on the little drafting table a clue to something else coming this year? I swear I see a redhead in a a gold dress. Wish I could see the details better. Are there any clues on that clothing rack? What about the dress the model above is wearing? Let the speculation begin….and she is off and running folks.
The people attending the BFC ( Barbie Fan Club ) event at this summers Barbie Convention in Ft. Lauderdale Florida were shown a preview of one of the 2012 Silkstones . The Silkstone designs, according to their designer Robert Best, are going back to the classic lines of the 1950’s. The line for 2012 is being called “Atelier” which defined means artist studio. I am looking forward to a return to the classics and the photos from these first two offerings have me very excited to see what the rest 2012 will hold for this fabulous line of dolls from Mattel.
