In 1998 Mattel continued the Fashion Avenue line names on packaging. The back of the packages for Bridal, Lingerie, Ken, Evening Wear, Party, and Boutique continue to have photographs of Barbie dolls wearing the fashions, similar to 1996 and 1997 but with more of a runway look. The Bridal line again has a pink in package background, rather than white. All wedding gowns are in the Bridal line, not the Evening Wear line. There are three wedding gowns sold exclusively in Europe and Canada with the line name Bridal Collection, that I originally listed with this year but have now moved to the 1999 Fashion Avenue line. The inside package background is very different. This year the 1998 Mattel USA Vendor Catalog has just a general description of the Bridal line, not theme names for each dress. Beautiful wedding gowns for Barbie doll featuring realistic details, fabrics and styles, with accessories that highlight the glamour and romance of wedding fashion play. Dolls not included.
