“AIFW is steadily establishing itself as a young and directional alternative to the world’s more traditional fashion weeks.

Alongside our catwalk show schedule our programme includes fashion events, lectures, exhibitions, retail initiatives and parties. As well as a showcase for Dutch fashion, AIFW provides a stage for the growing New Luxury segment, that so far was stuck between existing mainstream trade events and traditional couture weeks.

 [KA] has long been one of my favorite stops for skins – superb quality and attention to detail are hallmarks of Kira Ahn’s work. Little did I know, however, that these standards apply not only to her skin collection, but also to her fashion line. I got to sample some of Kira’s new fall designs, and I must say, [KA]’s latest pieces are absolute must-haves for every fashionista’s autumn wardrobe.

The first pieces that caught my eye in Kira’s newest line were two coats of drastically different styles. The Nomis jacket, top left, is a warm and cozy pea coat of the softest red wool. Nomis is made up of prim cuffs, shoulder detailing, collar, and a prim skirt/belt. In addition to red, Nomis also comes in blue, purple, mud, and black. This is definitely a fabulous coat for the chilly months ahead! Next to Nomis you’ll see the Nedo jacket. This jacket is one of my favorites I’ve seen this season. It has a looser feel than the sleek Nomis, with a flaired shape that will flatter any figure. The herringbone texture that Nedo uses adds a sophistication to the design that makes it just perfect for any occasion, from business to pleasure. Nedo comes in gray (as modeled), red, black, plum, and lila (pink). I’m inclined to pick up one of each color!

Sonia28 Jie has impressed many fanshionistas with her daring necklines and elegant silhouettes.  Her line, Son!a, provides the women who seeks chic and provocative everything she needs to complete a polished, formal look.  Pictures fail to accurately portray the vibrant colors and detailed textures of Sonia28’s garments.  The tasteful drama of a Son!a gown must be appreciated in person and transforms the wearer into a queen for the night.  Sonia28 gives us insight into Son!a.

Christiana: How long have you been in Second Life (TM), and when/how did your business begin?
Sonia28: I am sixteen months old.  My business started a year ago in a 512×512 land with a few designs.

Christiana: What sparked your interest in starting your own line?
Sonia28: I started designing when I was 3 days old.  I searched for tutorials.  The tutorials on Natalia Zelmanov’s “Mermaid Diaries” blog were particularly helpful. In addition, I used my formal knowledge in Illustrator and Photoshop.  Creating a line or collection was what drove me into Second Life (TM).

I thought that it would be nice to start this post about the show with a short description of Amanda in her own words to help everyone get a feel of the designer and her inspiration. From partying to something a bit more elegant and feminine, Amanda’s collection caters for women from all walks of life. “SL allows me to take out all of my creativity and my passion for fashion and I hope my clients can feel this.” Discover more about Amanda, the lady, the creator and person at: http://amandabolero.blogspot.com/

The show was hosted by Una Ewing, the CEO of Ewing, and what a fantastic job she did, whilst of DJ Sexyjade Echegaray kept smooth tunes going throughout the presentation. The models presenting Amanda’s designs were Top EFA Model Bobie Woodget and Titled Models Aleida Rhode, Tiffany Dragonash, Ella Quinsette and ZoeAnastasia Aeon. It was a truly magnificent show and it was a pleasure to work with Amanda.

The fantastic runway was set in the city of New York at midnight with urban streetlights. I swear I even heard thunder and lightening. There was rain and smoke and we saw a few umbrellas up amongst the audience, with everyone looking fabulous and fitting in with the theme. Check out the pictures by TIllie Ariantho, you may find one of yourself!

The models all wore the same hair and sunglasses to put more focus on the designer’s clothes. (more…)

Following a quick discussion with an agency owner, you hesistantly transfer a large sum of lindens to their account. Now it is their turn to come up with the goods, but exactly what can you expect and will this really be a positive return on your investment? The age-old discussion about whether or not to pay for the promotion of your business and professional model training has reared its ugly head again. I was just on an SL blog, which made inaccurate statements about the industry, its professionals and less than accurate statements about the agency and its operations. The agency has also received a large number of queries from people about the value a fashion agency adds to their business and careers, so we wanted to open the door on the world of SL fashion marketing and promotion to help people understand a bit more about agencies and their contribution to the industry.

Before delving into any depth, I felt it appropriate to make the distinction between a modeling agency and a fashion agency – This is a question we get asked a lot and that people who do not really know the business struggle with. A modeling agency is an enterprise that scouts, grooms, markets, books and earns a % of the models fees in return for their hard work. Generally modeling agencies do not organise events – they identify and assign resources to jobs – models/actors and so on. They are the Kelly or the Adecco or the Manpower of the fashion industry.

A fashion (promotion) agency on the other hand should be thought of as a PR and promotions agency focusing on fashion as a tool and an outlet – think PR, think promotion, marketing, brand recognition and sales. A fashion PR agency represents its clients – models, fashion designers and other corporations who either use PR to promote fashion or use fashion to get PR. A fashion agency exists to promote your work and every action they perform on a client’s behalf must be in line with that notion. In return for the promotion of fashion or your brand through fashion, they charge a fee.

The Ewing Fashion Agency is a fashion PR & Promotions agency, consisting of a number of departments and disciplines.

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!
