Winter is a time of grey skies, white snow blamkets and leafless trees, but that doesn’t mean it should be devoid of all color.  This Sunday, December 14th, 2008 at 3 PM SLT, the Ewing Fashion Agency is pleased to showcase some colorful designs from several Second Life designers.  Two are well known fixtures among Second Life fashion and one is an exiting new entry.

This showcase will present women’s and men’s wear from Frozen Turquoise Valentine (FTV) and Chantkare in its first ever fashion show.  Shown along with these exciting fashions will be shoes by the incomparable Stiletto Moody, including some of the most recent releases.  So if you’re looking to brighten up a winter day, all are invited to attend this event.  With the holidays just around the corner, this is a wonderful chance to find that perfect outfit or gift.  Just follow this link to join us for the Winter Splash! fashion show.

On Friday 28th November at 12pm Ewing Fashion Agency hosted the “Hot as Ice Winter Lingerie Revue” with luxurious lingerie from Angel Dessous, Blacklace and Insolence.  The lucky models walking in the runway production  to show the latest sexy and alluring items from three of Second Life’s finest lingerie designers were Aleida Rhode, Ella Quinsette, Kay Fairey, Musique Gable, Rena Mascot, Tammy Trommler and ZoeAnastasia Aeon.

The first set of lingerie shown was that of Angel Dessous, followed by Insolence and then finishing with Blacklace, and as ever all of the lingere was made with very high quality textures and gorgeous styles and colours and most offered various options on how you could wear it for example with babydolls or without or with garters or without  and that was just a few options. The designers were great to work for and it was a real pleasure for all involved.  The audience had a great time and offered lots of compliments about the designers work and I bet a few went to bed that night with an empty linden wallet hehe.

If you missed the show you missed a real treat, teleport on down to their stores to stock up on some Hot as Ice Lingerie.  For all you men out there reading this blog, your woman will love any of these outfits as they are sure to make her feel sexy and all woman.

I am very proud to present to you the SL-designer team for  EFA-AIFW2009!   The team was simply formed by including the first 6 respondants to the participating call in the Ewing VIP-guest Group and at our blog. But I think I could not have dreamed of a better team.  Aside from being well-known names in the fashion scene, their individual styles are all very different, from classical gala gowns to Indian style fashion.   And different from the EFA-First Fusion show, this designer team is not only dutch, but very international.

The designers are: Sysy Chapman, Zaara Kohime, Digit Darkes, Neferia Abel, Simone Stern and Sascha Frangilli

It will be anxious to see how this group will translate the RL-outfits to Second Life.  Can they think out of the box?  Are they able to use the photo’s and rough sketches of the designs to create something new?  Will we recognise their style in the designs?  One thing is for sure, they are brave enough to take this step and make this event another historical step in Second Life fashion and cross-over events.  And I am really looking forward to working together with them on this this great opportunity! 

 

EFA-AIFW2009 Jennifer Delano

The RL-designer for the EFA-AIFW2009 will be Jennifer Delano.  Those who have been following EFA will recognise her name from the EFA-First Fusion show in February 2008.  What can the SL-designers expect this time?  I asked Jennifer some quick questions to get a little idea.

Jennifer, can you describe shortly your common designs?

My common designs are simple and wearable dresses. Those are most of the time make from the unusual choice of material.

What kind of collection do you have in mind for the AIFW2009?  What can we expect and what is your inspiration for this show?

The Fashion Week show is based on my three colours. White, red and black. The theme is black – looking at the past. Red – looking at now. White – looking at the future. Thats why we’ll show it at the Beurs van Berlage, this beautiful building has three pieces of art who represent past, now and future.

 

Put already a mark at 26 January 2009 in your schedule, to be sure you will not miss what this creative team will present to you during EFA-AIFW2009!

On Sunday, November 23rd, Ewing Fashion Agency held a graduation show for the Elite Model Training Classes.  This was a very successful month with three students graduating, Nezsy Herstein, Elahna Dyrssen and ToxicNymph Wyszniak.  Also joining them on the runway were former graduates Evanesence Blaisdale and Jennaa Loire. Some of you may recall Evanesence couldn’t participate in her own graduation show due to RL commitments so we were glad to off her this opportunity.

The students and past graduates one by one graced the runway perfectly and managed to show a wide range of designers work in their own individual sytles of casual, swimwear, smart business, lingerie, and formal.  At Ewing Elite Model Training the models are asked to use their own clothes to showcase their personality and style through their choices of clothing.  The show went very smoothly and swiftly ending with a huge applause from the audience.  Following the finale, each of the new graduates were welcomed back onto the runway for the last time to receive official congratulations and their certificate from the agency.  EFA titled model Aleida Rhode had the great pleasure of presenting the graduates with their certificates.  The models and staff then joined the assembled crowd where they received more praise and well wishes.

Nothing can make an outfit so desirable as a good picture. It makes you search for your wallet and want to put on your coat to get away with your copy.  When you have it, you try to recapture the image of the picture while trying the outfit on yourself, wanting the stunning look like the model had and hoping for the feeling it first invoked.  This is one of the reasons that a good designer cannot live without a good fashion photographer.

Connie Arida is such a fashion photographer.  With her sexy blond look and her perfect feeling for styling, she makes every outfit a piece to die for.  How does she do this?  Time to have a talk with her and to introduce her to you, because you will be seeing more work from her on the EFA blog.  She responded to my call for participation in the EFA-AIFW2009 and henceforth will be our official event photographer for this show.

It’s my past, my present and appreciation from Photographers outside of SL that makes it special.

Who is Connie Arida or must I say Connie Sec?

In 1st life, I’m a student studying Environmental Science after completing my Lab Technology diploma.  Arida is my SL surname..and Sec is my Flickr Surname…’cos I’ll always be “Just a sec”.  ( yea yea..weak joke). I live in Sydney, Australia, and have been in SL since April 2007. While I am an SL photography addict, my 1st life does come first and I made a promise to myself a long while back that SL and 1st life would not mix. My Flickr is where I post all my pics, though I do post some to Koinup, and Facebook..and others. My Blog is just my fashion shots, with a list of the outfits and accesories and where thay are from.  I like to feature lesser known or new designers if I can. Basically, I like to help out. I don’t charge 99% of the time. Apart from that, I spend time with my SL partner, see my SL sister and friends, furnish my home, terraform and don’t get out as much as I should. I hit the Big 30 a while back ( Runs to the edge of the grid, and jumps)

Watch out with jumping, I am already laying there! When did you start with fashion photography?

I started Flickr in about the middle of 07 as a sort of everyday record of the happenings in my SL life. Over time, it’s morped into clothes, “Art” and silliness. I love SL fashion and like to find things that I like ( especially from little known designers) and photograph them. I mainly do it for my own pleasure and relaxation…it’s better than writing a scientific report with Harvard referencing :)
