Fashion is a global phenomenon with every cultural having its own histories that influence development of local styles.  With Second Life being accessible from around the globe, it stands to reason that we would see fashion styles from many cultures brought here.  The fact that many residents like to learn about and experience designs from other areas bodes well for designers of authentic regional fashion.  One such designer that is worth knowing about is Vlinder Reitveld of Vlintuition.  Vlinder specializes in the design of authentic asian styles, among them, Indian, Chinese and Mongolian.  Her travels throughout Asia allow her to keep abreast of local fashion trends and she strives to recreate these fashions accurately in Second Life.

Above is pictured Vlinder’s most recent Indian release, the Kala Gown in Navy.  What is striking about this garment is the highly detailed embroidery at the hem, waist of the lehenga and on the cap sleeve choli.  The prim parts of the lehenga blend almost seemlessly with the underlying pants layer.  The matching dupatta is sculpted at the shoulders with the front and back ends flex for natural movement.  This outfit includes a pair of bracelets.  The Kala Gown also comes in Orchid, Coal, Sky and Crimson.

Mami Jewell of Azul has quickly become on of the best designers of gowns in Second Life and the recently released Melena gown is a wonderful example of her design ability.  Azul offers gowns in many styles and colors, so you’re likely to find one appropriate for any occasion.  Weather you need a full ball gown or something tighter fitting to show off your curves, there is sure to be something that satisfies.  Sophisticated, glamorous and alluring gowns can all be found at Azul.

The Melena is a sexy two-toned gown with a diaphanous mermaid skirt.  The skirt and one side of the bodice are black, while the rest is in a contrasting lighter color that causes that desired second look.  Colors available are Pink, Aqua, Lavender, Sand, Nude and the Silver seen in the photos.  This gown is further enriched with intricate gold embroidery and lace and feather detailing on the single shoulder strap.  The matching armlets are part of th shirt layer top which allows for wearing glove layer nail polish necessary for that total glamorous look.

Just because it’s getting colder outside, doesn’t mean that you can’t continue to look hot. Keeping this in mind, I did a little shopping for a sexy fall look and this is what I came up with.

There really  are not many things that look hotter than leather and this lovely ensemble proves it. The Black leather jacket is a new release from COCO and features amazing detail and sleek lines that give it a tailored fashion forward look. The top, from Plastik, is actually the top of a mini dress called Shredder and provides just enough edge to make this ensemble perfect for clubwear.

Aradhana Voight, owner of Mashooka Designs, continues to expand her offerings at a rapid pace.  As anyone who frequents her store knows, Mashooka Designs carries not only the authentic Indian styles it is famous for, but also casual and formal lines as well.  This past week, Aradhana added a range of new items, each available in a selection of wonderful colors.  Jewelry is an important aspect of Indian dress and Aradhana hasn’t ignored this fact.  She has also added to her ever-growing selection of Indian styled jewelry with a new release this week.

This casual look, above, combines the Gilet dress in metallic blue with the Tristin blouse in darkrose.  This dress, shown with the flexi A-line skirt option, can also be worn with a non-flex pencil skirt of the same length.  The Tristin blouse features semitransparent wrist cuffs and multiple layers.  Both the dress and blouse are wonderfully textured for realism.  The Gilet dress is also available in black, bordeaux, lilac and moss while the Tristin blouse also comes in beige, blue, light blue, ocean and red.  For a more daring look the dress can be worn alone with the wide shoulder straps offering just enough coverage.  Also worn for this photo is C’est si bon hair with hat from Vanity Hair and a Donnarama Gloss peach skin with make up 4 BK from Baiastice.

For people who are not familiar with SF Design by Swaffette Firefly, you can find clothes from classic to sexy, from formal to casual and for man and woman and you will even find matching shoes in her shoe collection!

As present I received the sf design anniversary ballgown and for Kafee the sf design anniversary tux – sage. A perfect combination together, it made us want to go to a party and have a dance. What I like about the dress is the bustier with the lace trim. It gives you a much better decollete and nice detail, at the back it has nice diamond studs, very sexy! The resize menu takes care of the perfect size for you. The tux has a classical design, but made perfect with all the extra prims like the shoulder parts, sleeves for the arm and  prim for the lower part of the jacket. Also the pant has leg prims. It gives the tux so much more swing and it makes it less stiff. And good news, both outfits have matching shoes included. Not shoes you will only wear with this and never anymore, no, good quality shoes you will find another matching outfit for. This gown and tux will be available from this sunday on at SF Design.

I adore the designs of Indyra Seigo because they are fun , very detailed, and always fashion forward. They are clearly the product of a great imagination and a passion for design. That being said, I decided to check out her newest design, Shirley Temple on the Rocks. 

 This fashionable and playful little number is a “cocktail” dress that boasts amazing details and a modern flair.

Indyra’s creative design is also reminiscent of the adorable little dresses worn by the 1930s child star for whom the drink is named. But make no mistake, this Indyra Original is modern and all grown up. The corseted black and white bodice laces in the back and the cinched waist is further accentuated with an edgy multi-strap belt that fits perfectly.The skirt features a tartan petticoat that moves effortlessly when you walk. Splashes of red in the underskirt, belt buckles, and the cherry red button near the “top” of the shoulder give this dress the perfect boost of color !

If you are looking for a fun and flirty dress for your wardrobe, “Shirley Temple on the Rocks” is certain to quench your thirst. However, you will not find this dress at Indyra Originals. It was made to be sold exclusively at Starlight Exclusives is a new, upscale boutique that will feature original and exclusive creations from several of SL’s finest fashion designers.
