Madrid Fashion Doll Convention 2015 part 1

September 15, 2015

I can’t believe the convention is over and now I have to wait for 363 days for the 2016 Madrid Fashion Doll Convention to start. Lol! I had an amazing time in Madrid and I can’t wait to get back and meet everybody again.

I arrived on Friday at noon after a 4 hour flight that was also delayed. The joy… After meeting with Maria Cristina Lemmi at the airport, I managed to drag my luggage to the hotel and unpack. Well, sort of unpack because I just threw my luggage on the floor, changed in the clothes for the Pink Party and head out to grab some lunch with Cristina, Ibrahim, Francesco, Jesus and the always lovely Lorena Sullivan at a small restaurant just near our hotel. The convention took place at the Ayre Gran Hotel Colon, a lovely hotel with a gorgeous garden where that evening’s party took place.

Right before the convention, we enjoyed a great Fashion Show where Luis Gomez was a FIERCE Karl Lagerfeld Barbie doll and Maria Barlin Boguslavsky was the Madrid Premiere Beauty Barbie doll.

The pink party was full of laughters, joy, a great sangria and some gorgeous dolls designed by my dear Marcelo Jacob. I spent the evening laughing with Rogier, his mom, Francesco and Edgar and “hating” everybody that got to win one of Marcelo’s dolls. :)) Yes, I’m jealous!

Sorry, Edgar for not including your head. My hand was not long enough. I do need one of those selfie sticks. :))

There were two types of dolls. One had a romper one and the other was a giftset that also included a skirt and a bag. Simply stunning! Marcelo is BEYOND talented!

At around midnight I gave in to exhaustion and went to bed. I had two full days ahead and I had to sleep to charge my batteries. :))

On Saturday I started the day by visiting Madrid a bit and going to the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum where 2 special expositions are taking place. The first was the Vogue Like a Painting expo with images from the Vogue archive that resemble paintings and the other was with the paintings of Spanish artist Zurbaran. I’m so sorry I didn’t have time to visit the Prado Museum but my schedule was really tight.

After quickly going through the museum, we rushed to the hotel for the unvealing of the Jamie Show Demi Couture Eshe Exclusive MFDS doll.

At the same event there was a gorgeous 16″ diorama created by several doll colletors and featuring miniatures by Russian Artist KOLOBOK (Elena Djoma). These food miniatures was so realistic they just blew my mind!

When the event ended I quickly run to my room to get ready for the gala event but I’ll tell you more about that in my next blog post. ;) Stay tuned!
