Integrity Toys 2019 Convention: Live From Fashion Week - Day 1

The 2019 Integrity Toys Live From Fashion Week convention opened officially this week in Baltimore and once again, this blog will be bringing you all the new dolls and outfits, as products become available at the convention throughout the weekend. This year's theme is all about fashion, and with the exception of the Poppy Parker Style Lab (which celebrates the 10th anniversary of Poppy Parker), every exclusive doll offered at the event, whether in the convention collection, salesroom, centerpieces or giveaways, is inspired by either Spring, Resort, Summer, Fall or Winter fashion weeks as follows:

Poppy Parker is Fashion Week Spring/Summer 1967

Fashion Royalty is Fashion Spring/Summer 2020

Monarchs is Fashion Week Resort 2020

East 59th is Fashion Week Fall/Winter 1956

The Industry is Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2020

NU. Face is Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2020

Dolls from the Fashion Royalty® Collection and the NU. Face™ Collection were designed by Jessy Ayala, the East 59th® Collection by Chris Stoeckel, The Monarchs Homme by Vaughn Sawyers and the Poppy Parker™ Collection by David Buttry.

The convention registration started on Wednesday for the attendees who arrived early and they all received "Fresh Perspective" Baroness Agnes Von Weiss in their welcome bag. The bag had Powder Puff Poppy Parker printed on it, celebrating Poppy’s 10th anniversary.

Note: All dolls pictured in these photos are prototypes; final colors and textures may vary slightly.

I’m not crazy about this version of the Baroness. She’s beautiful but I find her make up too pronounced and candy coloured to like (it looks more prominent in real life photos). Her outfit and accessories remind me of Going Public Eugenia. And, as you will see below, most of the dolls in this convention so far, remind me of older releases. I don’t know if it is due to the production problems that troubled Integrity Toys this year or simple lack of inspiration, but I’m a bit underwhelmed by what I’m seeing in the first convention day, with a couple of notable exceptions.

The Integrity Toys Souvenir Shop and The Style Lab opened for business on Thursday. Let’s see the offerings that can be found in the Souvenir Shop - that is, the Convention collection and the shop exclusives.

Cute but it’s like Vivacité with another skintone. The total would look completely washed out, save for the raven hair and brightly coloured shoes. The blouse looks beautiful but the skirt does not do it justice. Where is Ferré when you need him!

Spring Romance

Adèle Makéda™ Dressed Doll

The 2019 Integrity Toys Convention: Live From Fashion Week Convention Collection

Skin Tone: Dark A-Tone

Hair Color: Raven (Flocked)

Eyelashes: Yes

Quickswitch: No

She look a lot like her sister from the Faces of Adéle giftset. From the waist up she gives me Adut Akech vibes in Valentino. The pants are not to my liking, they needed a more fluid fabric to work properly. Love the bag and hat, her accessories in general are superb.

Hair Color: Pale Honey Blonde

Eyelashes: Yes

Quickswitch: No

She’s fantastic! People have been clamouring for ages for a light coloured version of the Afroamerican Integrity Toys sculpts and the result is breathtaking. Her outfit is gorgeous too, reminding me of the OOAK Bow Down Nadja from the 2017 convention.

Young Romantic

Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll

The 2019 Integrity Toys Convention: Live From Fashion Week Convention Collection

Edition Size: 700

public.jpeg
public.jpeg

Head Sculpt: Poppy Parker

Body Type: Poppy Parker

Foot Sculpt: High Heel and Articulated Ankle (Comes With Both)

Skin Tone: Hungarian

Hair Color: Warm Dark Brown

Eyelashes: Yes

Quickswitch: No

public.jpeg

I’m not against romantically styled dolls, but they have to be styled in a certain way. This is not it. Very renaissance looking, a little modern Juliet, looking for her Romeo. The extra flat feet and sandals only accentuate the effect.

Item # PP154

Kimono Go Go

Poppy Parker™ Dressed Doll

The 2019 Integrity Toys Convention: Live From Fashion Week Convention Collection

Edition Size: 700

Head Sculpt: Poppy Parker

Body Type: Poppy Parker

Foot Sculpt: Articulated Ankle

Skin Tone: FR White

Hair Color: Platinum

Eyelashes: Yes

Quickswitch: No

What a beautiful face! The only thing bothering me are the orangey brows. Her hairstyle and earrings are straight from the fashion magazines of the sixties. Her kimono though is not up to par. The huge obi distorts her silhouette in an ungainly way.

Winter Shimmer

Lady Aurelia Grey™ Dressed Doll

The 2019 Integrity Toys Convention: Live From Fashion Week Convention Collection

Edition Size: 400

Head Sculpt: Lady Aurelia Grey

Body Type: E59

Foot Sculpt: High Heel

Skin Tone: Light Honey

Hair Color: Raven

Quickswitch: No

The last doll of the convention collection is a new Aurelia. Blue seems to be a favourite colour for her. She looks regal and I love her jewellery. Not enough to want her for my collection though. The hairstyle is a bit off for her era though, it was popular in the next decade. Not many accessories but killer gloves.

public.jpeg

The convention salesroom had a few more dolls available for collectors, with a new sculpt and character of - gasp! - older age debuting in the Industry line.

NEW CHARACTER!

That's All

Plum Powers™ Dressed Doll

The 2019 Integrity Toys Convention: Live From Fashion Week Salesroom Exclusive

Head Sculpt: Plum Powers

Body Type: The Industry

Foot Sculpt: High Heel

Skin Tone: Cream

Hair Color: Platinum/Silver Mix

Eyelashes: Yes

Quickswitch: No

public.jpeg

She’s so obviously inspired by Iris Apfel but she also has a bit of the legendary fashion editor of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, Carrie Donovan, who had trademark huge glasses too. Want her! And her croc imitation Kelly style bag is to die for.

Devil Made Me Do It

Tulabelle True™ Dressed Doll

The 2019 Integrity Toys Convention: Live From Fashion Week Salesroom Exclusive

Edition Size: 400

Quickswitch: No

We can see the new Tulabelle sculpt better now, I still cannot warm up to her. She looks so smug I want to punch her, LOL! Not sure about the asymmetrical jacket. I’d like it better if the asymmetry was also at her collar.

Art Of Manliness

Darius Reid™ Dressed Doll

The 2019 Integrity Toys Convention: Live From Fashion Week Salesroom Exclusive

Edition Size: 500

public.jpeg
public.jpeg

Head Sculpt: Darius 2.0

Body Type: The Monarchs Homme

Foot Sculpt: The Monarchs Homme

Skin Tone: Nubian

Hair Color: None

Eyelashes: None

Quickswitch: No

public.jpeg

One of the oldest and most loved characters makes his appearance again! Darius has a new sculpt, not a gorgeous as the previous one though. He look more like Tyson Beckford now. The hot pink suit is lovely. He has nice accessories too, plus a hat and an earring. And yes, the ugly sneaker trend has hit the Monarchs too. Must add that titling your male doll The Art Of Manliness in 2019 and the era of #MeToo and LGTB+ rights is a bit weird.

Two new capsule collections were revealed this week from Integrity Toys. The first one is East 59th Street by Chris Stoeckel, who continues with his foray in the world of 1950's fashion. There are two dressed dolls and a gift set inspired by retro paper doll designs available through regular IT dealers and also an IT Direct exclusive two-doll "Pink Champagne" gift set, featuring Victoire Roux modelling her friend Aurelia's latest creation on her wedding day.

Beautiful doll but not enough to tempt me into buying her, although I want a dark haired Victoire for my collection (the ones I have have all variations of red hair). Elegant and bright ensemble with nice details and accessories. It has a whiff of the Busy Gal Barbie. This hat has been done to death in Poppy Parker line and should be retired. There were so many different hat designs in the 1950s so it would be nice to see something else for a change. Love the colour combinations.

IMG_9177.JPG

A new Aurelia, not that different from the first one at first look. I don’t particularly like the dress with the weird draping. I wish we could see more Charles James style gowns instead of Bon Bon style dresses. Not a fan of the colour combination either. She has the more realistic gloves which is a very good thing.

Evelyn gets the best outfits this time around. It’s a great giftset with so many options. And I’m a sucker for green. Might be getting this one later on, if it’s still available.

IMG_9193.JPG

I really don’t like this one. The colours, shapes, textures, are all somewhat off. The Victoire gown in particular looks shapeless. The fabric and embroidery don’t particularly do the shape justice and keep it from looking good on the doll. It’s a great price for two dolls though. Oven mittens make an appearance on the bride.
