This will be my last Paris Fashion Doll Festival report as I finish up my stint of co-blogging with Dutch Barbie World. As I finish up this blog post, Rogier is making his way back home with a lot of goodies he picked up at the festival. I am sure he will give us his overall impressions when he has a chance to unpack and unwind. I hope you all have enjoyed these R&R ( Rogier and Rebecca…perhaps a new blog down the road LOL!) reports.
There was a final Sybarite offering from Superdoll Saturday and those intrepid enough to get up super early and stand in line, were able to get her. She had an edition size of 30. Very limited indeed. Her name is Meringue.
The last event of this Paris festival was the sales room and by the look of Rogier’s photos, there was much to look at and choose from. Many OOAK artists came to show off their talents. There were two offerings from the popular 16 inch doll line Numina
And a large group of beautiful OOAKs from Artist Creations
And much much more…
You can find more photos on Rogier’s Flickr page. That wraps it up for me. Thank you Rogier, for taking us along on this fantastic journey!! It has been an honor and a pleasure to guest/co-blog with you! Safe travel home my friend.
Miss Classic Black Dress joined Rogier for the luncheon in Paris today.
The schedule today at the Paris Fashion Doll Festival started with the silent auction. It would appear that the big ticket item was a prototype of Water Sprite Barbie® Doll from Mattel
Upon entering the dining room, a few gifts were set on the table.
The Barbie Collector catalog had some interesting pages with new promo shots!
They say “coming soon” and “discover other partnerships in spring of 2016”…hope they mean that! Would love to get my hands on these silkies this Spring.
After lunch it was time for a fashion show and doll presentation. Had to share this one from the show…. Cinderella and her prince! How adorable is that?!!
Lot’s of creative people showing their talents in Paris for this luncheon. But wait….who is that lady on the left…with the white collar??
But wait….who is that lady on the left…with the white collar??
The convention doll was introduced in a fun and new way this year! She walked out in the fashion show. Too fun!
It’s the flaming redhead for Paris. J’adore!!!! I know a number of us collectors were hoping that this hair color was going to be produced after seeing the photo earlier this year in a Wall Street Journal article
A nice touch they have added this year to the convention dolls are boxes that specify these are platinum dolls.
That wraps it up from the Paris Fashion Doll Festival today. Tomorrow it concludes with the salesroom. I am sure Rogier will have photos and stories for us on this tomorrow.

Day 1: Evening “The Sybarite Event”
Rogier reporting and Rebecca(ITFDS)writing again. This evening in Paris was the fabulous Sybarite Event. There was an exclusive outfit offered before the evening festivities. It’s called Sixteen
The event is a favorite and the energy, excitement and anticipation were all there again this year. The reveal of the doll at this annual event is a big production. This year did not disappoint. Think spring…think floral.
And they sure know how to throw a party!
And here she is…Miss Pavlova!! Limited Edition of 50
The detail on this gown is amazing!
And best of all…jewels!!
Nice hand modeling Rogier!!!
Tomorrow is the presentation of the convention doll!!! What hair color and dress will she have?!!! We all await the unveiling.
