Today it’s Barbies 55th birthday and people all over the world are celebrating this.
In Japan they celebrate her birthday with a Barbie Fashion Luncheon.
This Luncheon is the 8th Japanese Barbie Convention. This convention is organized by the japanese Barbie fan club . The convention is held in the Asakusa View Hotel in Japan.
Here is a fun promotion video for this years convention.
They start the convention with a workshop. Making mini birthday cakes for Barbie.
This picture was posted on Twitter this morning.
This is were the Luncheon took place.
There was a fashion show.
Here you can see the fashion show from last year.
And they had an auction with some amazing dolls by Japanese artists.
Of course there was a salesroom where you could buy the most cool Japanese Barbie items.
But the most exciting thing for me is that they had an convention doll donated by Mattel.
And it’s a Silkie !!!
It’s a gorgeous variation on Fiorella. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the red hair and her total black outfit is so chique !
I think her edition is very limited because this convention had 110 places.
Here are some other pictures that I found this morning.
What a perfect doll to celebrate her 55th Birthday.
