Alexander McQueen Lives on at Barbie Con

The 2013 Barbie Convention has come and gone, but I felt the need to post something very noteworthy about this convention.  This lovely replica of a dress from the Alexander McQueen “Widows of Culloden” collection was available through a lottery system at Barbie Con.  She was done by the very talented Magia2000 in Italy.  The gown is hand embroidered and beaded lace.  If there was ever a Barbie to own, this would have been at the top of my list. With all the sequin and beading work I have been doing lately for a separate project, I might just decide to use those skills toward my own little fabulous couture doll outfit.
