Barbie Convention 2020

Some of you may have already heard that I and Rebecca of Inside the Fashion Doll Studio will not be attending the 2020 NBDCC in Las Vegas. We are very sorry that we will not be seeing our dear friends in person this year, but we wanted to assure you that it is not due to any health concerns in either of our families. Thank you to everyone who has asked after us and our loved ones. We are all very well.

In order to continue bringing you the fashions and accessories that you look forward to at Convention, Rebecca and I will be presenting special capsule collections between now and July, featuring special, never before seen fabrics and prints. Be on the lookout for a spring collection in time for Easter and a convention themed collection in early June.

In other exciting news, Rebecca is opening an Etsy shop! Stay tuned for an announcement and link in the next few days!

Liberty of London “Strawberry Thief” Cummerbund Party Dress

Strawberry Thief is the most enduring of artist William Morris’ designs. It was inspired by the thrushes he saw stealing fruit in the kitchen garden of Kelmscott Manor, his country estate in Oxfordshire. This particular color way is especially vibrant in shades of blue with pops of vivid green and magenta. The boat necked bodice has a ruched cummerbund in parrot green cotton lawn. The full skirt has layers of bright green tulle for added volume. A tiny potted strawberry, handmade by a talented artist from Thailand, is included.
