In 1997 Mattel added Fashion Avenue line names to the packages. They reissued some of the fashions from 1996 and added new ones. Some of the new ones are the same fashions as last year but change color. For example a purple and black dress from 1996’s Party line is reissued with silver instead of purple fabric and one 1996 Denim line outfit is moved to Boutique. The mint green nightgown was slightly altered and pink robe were sold in 1995 in Europe and Canada. The package copyright date on both was 1994 and fashion line named Lingerie Fashion, without the Fashion Avenue label. Both are included her for comparison, and should not be considered part of the Fashion Avenue line. Pretty ensembles for Barbie doll, each with coordinating shoes and comb or brush.
