This weekend saw the Rome Fashion Doll Convention 2016 take place in – if you couldn’t guess already – Rome. The theme for this Year was ‘FASHIONABLE’.

There was not one, but two, exclusive dolls. The first was a Robert Best designed, articulated Silkstone Classic Black Dress variation. This time a strawberry blonde doll with the same outfit as the Paris exclusive.

Next was an event exclusive doll B White Barbie. This doll was a limited edition of 170. One for each of the convention attendees. Her design was inspired by the Fashionable theme of the convention.  She was created by the event organisers Artist Creations in collaboration with other Italian designers.

As always there was much fun and merriment to be had. The sales room also takes place today as well as yesterday. You can see great coverage of the event on the Fashion Doll Collecting UK Facebook page.

So what do you thnk of the dolls? Where you there this weekend? Let me know in the comments below.
