The last day of convention is full of lovely sales room goodies 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.
And here is one for the Magia2000 auction item.
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 many, many more talented people exhibited their wares
Amazing hats and outfits by Cisca Durieux
And so many more….
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.
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 then it was time for the presentation of the Mattel convention doll!!
Brunette Classic Black Dress articulated Silkstone. Gorgeous!!!
Limited Edition of 221
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 box was designed by Brani Midlanov”
And, as extra extra bonus, a helper doll was given to some of the instrumental people who collaborated and helped bring this fabulous convention to fruition.
Made By Mon-Lew Designs to thank collaborators and helpers.
She is a limited edition 30 units
Tomorrow is salesroom day!! I am sure Rogier will have lots of amazing pictures for us of the bounty available at the Madrid Fashion Doll Show. Stay tuned tomorrow.
After presentations were over this afternoon, there was one workshop put on by the talented member of Artist Creations Guiseppe de Bellis
Then it was time for the really big party…The Gala Dinner!!! Here are a few images from the dessert table.
The centerpiece doll
“Bolliwood Diva 2.0”
She was an originally designed by Marcelo Jacob, now redesigned by Lewis and made by Joana Costa “Squistish”
And the tables themselves incorporated many of the beautiful colors of India.

So, Gala dinner is happening right now. We should have images of convention doll very soon. As I write this, Rogier is sending me videos of some major dancing going on…Bollywood style. LOVE. What a fantastic party!!
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.
For those who attended the cocktail, there was a beautiful outfit given as a gift.
More info coming later and don’t forget…Gala dinner with presentation of convention doll!!!
What do you do after a fabulous fashion show? You go to a party of course. The organizers in Madrid had a fun evening of Indian food and drinks as well as henna hand painting available for the conventioneers. Beautiful henna tattoo work by Ibrahim!!
There was also this fantastic fashion ( limited edition of 30) by Marcelo Jacob, raffled off to 30 lucky winners!
Rogier will have more to report tomorrow with all kinds of presentations going on as well as the gala dinner and convention doll reveal!! Stay tuned….
I may only speak for myself but I feel many would agree that the fashion show is always a fun part of any doll convention…or rather Barbie convention. I am always amazed at the skill of collectors and their ability to produce a doll design in real people scale. The attention to detail that many of these collectors go to is really intense. Here are some quick photos from this years Madrid convention.
And of course, each show has to have it’s own set of paparazzi…
Now, on to the show…
