Here is some text from the email that came with these photos:
"Here at the W Club, the W Club luncheon is always the highlight of the convention for us, as it gives us a chance to connect with and thank our members!
This year was no exception and Club members were thrilled to see the Paris Runway Giselle Diefendorf centerpiece doll walk the catwalk and were ecstatic to receive the NYFW Karolin Stone doll just for attending! Both were designed to celebrate the Fall/Winter 2020 Fashion Week by Jessy Ayala!
Then, Carol Roth hosted an informative Q & A panel on stage with the Integrity Toys design team, where Club members' burning questions were answered!"
IMO, the convention team should be connecting with the members throughout the event. They should be thanking each and every one of them big time for shelling out their money and supporting their business. I never understood why collectors thank the designers. That's backward. They're not doing it to make people happy; they're in business to make money.
Karolyn Stone was one of the most detested dolls when she appeared as the convention souvenir doll a few years ago. I'm not reading a lot of thrills on the boards; I'm seeing a lot of F/S posts.
Perhaps they're in style (somewhere) but the red vinyl pants are extremely unflattering to a doll who has a perfect figure.
As far as the burning questions, I wonder if anyone asked or wanted to ask about Roth's obnoxious post regarding the Obama's new home. There were plenty of burnt feelings when that came to light on the boards. What a joke she and her bullshit posts are. (I won't be winning any lottery offerings anymore.)
