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. The gold dress is an exact copy.
