 Get ready for another weekend of fun, friendship, dolls and charity as the members of the He’s A Doll! Club are honored to present the 2015 Ken®vention-Haberdashery!

The New Look--Basques, petticoats, corolla skirts, pointed shoes, bright-coloured floral and striped prints, wasp-waist suits with straight skirts, strapless sheath dresses, cocktail dresses, rock crystal embroidery.  The Bold Look--wide shoulders, broad lapels, turn-ups and an emphasis on bold, coordinated accessories: such was the couture of the fifties for women and men respectfully.

As an official conventioneer (and employee) we are certain you will enjoy joining Barbie® and Ken® as they open 1950's newest brand luxury department store in Chicago--Carson-RobertsYou’ll visit different departments in our store through our daily operations (that will surely bring back memories and your inner vintage fashionista).  A GREAT way to become involved with our department managers is to browse the 2015 Ken®vention website and Yahoo group (so please join!)  Your adventure really begins as an attendee of the 2015 Ken®vention…when our department counters are open for business.

Join us for an extraordinary elegent  convention adventure of a time long gone.  Full of fun and excitement, couture fashions and (of course) a souvenir Ken® Doll representing our theme to add to your collection.


The convention events officially start on Thursday evening with The Grand Opening Welcome Reception, then it's business as usual with The Men’s Department Trunk Show Dinner Event Friday evening, and finally, The Women’s Department Showroom Couture Dinner Event Saturday evening.

While at convention enjoy browsing our Cosmetic Counter Workshops which are fun, informative and will make you feel beautiful! Test your luck in our Receiving Dock Raffle Room and the Sales Audit Department Casino.  Showcase your creative side in our Showroom Competition and make sure to join us in the Fine Jewelry Department for our 2015 Kenvention Auction Charity to benefit Be Like Brit.  The Live Auction will feature items for every budget. 100% of the proceeds from the Live Auction will be donated to the charity.
