I’m back with my story! So, after the 16″ event, I went up to my room, took a shower and went down to meet with Brani Mladenov, the talented designer who did all the artwork for the convention, so we could go out and try to find a vintage toy shop. In the lobby we stumbled upon Jesus Martinez of Creaciones Neo who helped us get to the center of the town. Of course we couldn’t find the damn shop, but we still got to shop a bit and enjoy ourselves. We also met Lionel Masson and Christelle Baudry who were so kind and gifted me with the uber cute LA Girl Fashionista. I love her!
Tired, but happy, I went back to the hotel to get ready for the gala dinner. My gorgeous Ibrahim helped me with my hair and makeup and off I went. The gala dinner room was beautiful and my table was AMAZING! Rogier was my table host and the table was so full of gifts that I just could not put my purse anywhere. Here’s what I got.
From Alex Jauregui we got a beautiful doll created by Jesus Medina.
Rogier gave us one of his miniatures and his mother gave us the amazing 10 YEARS: 10th ANNIVERSARY SILKSTONE BARBIE BOOK.
I also got a tone of sweets from Mexico (Alex), Marcelo Jacob fashions, jewels and a scepter for the Spotlight on Broadway Barbie made by Creaciones Neo and tons of other stuff.
The center pieces were some really handsome Karl Lagerfeld Ken‘s paired with the lovely ladies from the charity auction. There were also other dolls on the other tables and we had a beutiful candy lady that ruled over the sweets bar.
I also got a chance to see live the dolls created by Carlye Nuera for the charity auction.
The evening was filled with magic, laughts, contests and lots of surprises. The lovely Maria Barlin Boguslavsky presented a special project she did with the famous Isralian designers Nataly A. Shevilly and Jacob Douk. The theme of the shoot was the Barbie World.

At one of the contests held I won a Dior purse and CK wallet created by Ana Villan. How cute is it?
And then the most important moment of the evening finally came!! At this convention, besides the Spotlight on Broadway Barbie doll, we had the opportunity to get a second doll created by Luis Gomez, Marcelo Jacob, Monica Nuñez del Castillo and Brani Mladenov. Her name is Pop Art Vogue Barbie and she was inspired by an 90s Versace dress.
The wonderful designers.
The evening ended with a party and then off to bed because on Sunday I had to wake up early and set up my table at the sales room. But that’s another story.
