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!

The Ewing Fashion Agency is proud to present the eclectic late summer Bolero Collection by designer AMANDA BOLERO. You are cordially invited to join us on August 20, 2008, at Ewing’s Fashion District, Ischia, for this exciting presentation.

Amanda on her designs: “My involvement with the fashion field of SL began last year , by chance on one hand, and on the other because I couldn’t find what I wanted. I’m picky and I follow my daily mood on what to wear in RL, and this side of me doesn’t change here in SL . So, when I feel romantic I create a gown , when I feel sexy or aggressive or dream I create the right dress that suits my feeling. I think every woman has to wear what expresses herself and makes her feel comfortable in any situation: from shopping to party, from going to work to staying at home. But they always need a touch of originality and elegance . SL allows me to take out all of my creativity and my passion for fashion and I hope my clients can feel that.”

DJ Sexyjade Echegaray will play her jazzy tunes during the show.
