AZUL

Hello all and welcome to my weekly blog.  I thought to myself, “Tammy, here it is June the Wedding Month, I think wedding gowns are in order.”  More than that, here we go.

I was talking with my good friend Mami Jewell, owner of Azul, about working with Ewing in a fasion show a couple of weeks ago.  She got right in with us and wow did she ever blow the top off the place with her fashions.  Then the icing on the cake, was her new Wedding Dress line.  Absolutely devine.  Since not all of you were able to make the show, I want to do a show of my own.  If you want the totaly “WOW” factor at your wedding and make your fiance’s eye’s bug out, then here ya go, as all eyes will be on you.

In waiting for the Syntopia Show of next Friday, we want to introduce you to Aideen Sideways and Josine Vermeij. During a Meet the Designer session, at the EFA tv studio, you will get to know more about the designer and the message behind her designs. Rhi Rossini will be your EFA-host during this talk show. Come join us and feel free to ask your questions.

Press Release of Aideen Sideways

Syntopia: Where the two sides of the computer screen come together.

The computer screen to me is like a window between two worlds: on one side there is real life and on the other side there is Second Life. Both worlds have a lot to offer, each in a very different way. In Second Life fantasy can become reality which your avatar can really be a part of. In real life it’s a lot harder to make dreams come true but we can enjoy all of our senses. As a designer I use fashion to bring the two worlds closer together and create one very intense experience.

My collection Syntopia consists of 5 virtual and 5 ‘real’ outfits. The inspiration and starting points for these outfits were 5 words which I took very literally. I created a raincoat, to which in real life an umbrella is attached, and in Second Life it comes with a free personal rainstorm. A twinset, which has place for two in real life but in Second Life it comes with a twin sister. The sweatsuit I designed has its own finish line, which in Second Life you constantly run through at amazing speed. When wearing the babydoll in real life you can carry around your doll wearing exactly the same dress as you, in Second Life she carries you. And of course the evening gown, which in real life is spectacular with 3 meters of red silk attached to it, in Second Life anywhere you go, you walk on your very own red carpet.

On August 29th I will show my collection, both in real life and in Second Life. After the show there will be an exhitbiton untill Sepember 23rd. In real life the show takes place at 9.00 SLT/ 18.00 CET at Pastoe Design Centre, in Utrecht. In Second Life the models of Ewing Fashion Agency will show the virtual designs at 10.30 SLT/ 19.30 CET in Virtual Holland.

I hope to see you either in real life or in Second Life, by being at either one of the locations does not mean you have to miss out on the other ( that would not suit my concept): on the day of the show there will be a live connection between the two worlds.

If you have any questions please contact Aideen Sideways. You can also visit the website.

Last week I was checking out the shops in the neighborhood. Santa Cruz is the new shopping district at Ischia, were you also can find the EFA office, model school and our runways. I bumped into Stella Furkel while there,  who was busy putting new items in her shop, **Fashion Model Works**. Stella needs no introduction, but for those not so familiar with EFA, Stella Furkel is the amazing designer from our first pose show. She sponsored quite a few more shows and generously handed out goodybags in the Ewing Event VIP guest list group. While talking to her, she showed me her first dress designers and generously gave them to me so I could judge them for myself.

In the picture, I am wearing the “Stella ** FMW ** – CC – Backless Trns Blk Slk Cktail Dress”, a chic, simple and very elegant cocktail dress with a sexy laced top. The bow on the shoulder completes the dress and gives it a little bit of an innocent look, but don’t let yourself be fooled, this dress is really sexy!
