Niles, IL (PRWEB) November 14, 2005
It was announced today that The Ashton-Drake Galleries will be turning the well-loved Gene Marshall fashion dolls collection over to Gene doll creator Mel Odom and his Star Blue Studios. Don Vaccarello, Vice President of Ashton-Drake Galleries made the official announcement at the 10th Anniversary Gene Doll Convention in Stamford, Connecticut. Ashton-Drake will continue to offer dolls that are still in production, as well as earlier editions, through 2005. Moving forward, Mel Odom's Star Blue Studios will be in charge of advancing and marketing the Gene fashion doll line.
For the past ten years, Ashton-Drake has brought their years of expertise in the collectible doll industry to the development of Mel Odom's exquisitely beautiful, innovative and highly successful creation - the award-winning fashion doll that changed the shape of the modern collectible doll industry. The collectible Gene doll sweeps fashion doll collectors into the fictional Gene Marshall's glamorous movie star life from the Golden Age of Hollywood, inviting them to "Share the Dream" with an ongoing storyline that captivated fashion doll collectors as much as the meticulously detailed fashion designs and Gene's own breathtaking face. The Gene fashion doll wears the show-stopping fashions of Hollywood's 1940's movie star royalty, like the "La Femme D'Intrique" 10th Anniversary collectible doll nominated for a 2005 Doll of Excellence Award. This and other exclusive collectible dolls, costumes and furniture in the Gene Marshall fashion doll collection are available online at Collectibles Today.
