While Mario introduce the dolls and tells about the collection Gianni and their friend Ibrahim show the dolls around on the runway, just like a real fashion show.

I wish I was there to see this Iconic collection with my own eyes. 

Bravo !!! Mario and Gianni.

Rebecca made amazing pictures of this collection where you can see all the amazing details. Enjoy !!!

Silence Auction preview

Tomorrow its time for the Groovy Gallery Opening welcome reception with the silence auction. This year I worked on a piece for this auction with some great friends. Mario and Gianni from Magia2000 asked me to make a set for their silence auction donation. They guys came with the idea to make an Andy Warhol doll with his muse Barbie. And Andy needed a studio.

So after some brainstorming we decided that I would recreate a piece of the famous factory studio. So a silver brick wall and a concrete floor was my starting point. When the dolls and set were ready we had the idea that it would be cool to have this donation shoot by a good photographer. So we were very happy that our dear friend Rebecca Berry from Inside The Fashion Doll Studio was willing to help us out. The dolls and set were put on express to the US were they arrived just in time. Rebecca did an amazing job the days before she was leaving for convention herself.

So here it is our donation for the silence auction.

And I love the Marylin patterned fabric the guys used for her spectacular gown.

The set has many mini’s that you can play with like sketches, polaroids, Interview magazines and many of Andy’s famous pieces of art.

I hope this piece will raise some good money for charity.

Mario, Gianni and Rebecca it was an honor to work with you guys !!!

Matt Sutton

An other artist that opened his door yesterday was Matt Sutton. Rebecca send me so many gorgeous pictures from his creations. I just don’t know were to start.

I love this girl. She remind me of Evie from the BBC serie The House of Eliots.

20160725-IMGL3552

And this pink with black lace gown is just to die for.

20160725-IMGL3637

And what do you think of her. A raven in a black and white polkadot gown, can it get any better then this.

2016 is an amazing year for the Matt Sutton fans.

And after the show its tradition that the Matt Sutton fans come together in hotel bar to enjoy each other dolls while drinking cocktails to celebrate.

What a perfect way to end the day.
