FFT Sunday Morning: Victory Lane

The Sunday morning event brought to a close another fun and fashion-filled SSP convention.  All weekend long we enjoyed the fabulous runway that Sue Connor created, featuring many dolls dressed in favorite SSP fashions from past events as well as a few new ones acquired during FFT.

Hope to see you all back next year!!!!


    

The centerpiece was named GLIMMER-a lovely way to finish off all of the wonderful centerpieces throughout the convention.

SSP Saturday Evening: Fashion Finish Line


Saturday evening SSP hosted a Black and White Ball based on an actual ball thrown by Truman Capote. Halston, another "Indiana" designer (he wasn't born in Indiana but moved to Evansville, Indiana at the age of 14) had a huge influence on that event.

Conventioneers were asked to dress themselves and their dolls in black and white, with prizes being awarded in several categories.

The centerpiece fashions were both based on Halston creations:

BLANC ET NOIR


$175

The souvenir was based on a Norell design, featuring a long gown and coat. The coat can be reversed for another look.
