Fashion Weeks in RL

It's always interesting to keep up to date with RL Fashion. From Milan to Paris - where Fashion week is going on as I type.

Just take a look - as an example at Trussardi's show at Milan, last week.

Or Dolce & Gabbana's

There is no particular highlight of red color. So, what I've heard in SL, from some self nominated 'fashion experts', red is not particularly trendy. Especially if we think that fashion is always two seasons ahead.

What actresses wear at some ceremonies - like the Emmys - is one thing. Another, completely different, is the work done by designers, as part of their creations, that are being showcased at this precise moment in the best European cities. Red is included in the collections and so are other colors, with a clear tendence to flowery patters; black is also trendy for 2012 Spring/Summer Collections, as you can see. Nude colors are some of the favorites, too.

Paris is now on it's fashion week.

Yesterday, September 28th, was Gareth Pugh's Show. Worth to watch!

Fashion experts in SL are just a few.
All of those involved in the fashion industry in SL should really take a good look at RL fashion and how it's going. Probably if some 'experts' did this, they wouldn't try to start their own color fashion trends, based on--- the Emmy's Awards (????!!!).

Let's see who in SL will follow the 'red trend' that, simply came from an egomaniac mind, that likes to watch actresses on the screen, instead of real models and fashion shows.

As usual, I'll be around ;)

Modavia did it again!

Modavia Fashion Week 2011 was a huge event!
Being able to pull up a week of fashion shows, four SL designers a day is outstanding!

I won't be showing you photos, you can see them in Modavia's Flickr page.
Plus, since I am a dedicated anonymous, I didn't have access to the VIP area, and it was hard to take photos from the audience sim.

Done in SL in the same time period as RL New York Fashion Week, this event must have had a great team behind it.

To have a fashion week with one show a day is easier, for sure.

Modavia had amazing sets, simple as a fashion show set usually is, and yet very well set up: the runway, the set colors, the models, the designers' creations, the music.

Again, it was really extraordinaire! To recreate a RL fashion week in SL is quite an accomplishment!

Modavia did it two years in a row. Last year was very good too, this year was even better!

A company that manages to do this in SL - with all SL's restrictions that we're all aware of - is something!

Known as being sharp in my critiques, this time, I have nothing negative to say.
It was done in such a professional way that it really looked like we were in a RL fashion event. In my personal opinion, this is what SL is about, in terms of all that surrounds the fashion industry. It mimics RL as it should be.

No wonder so many SL models want to be represented by Modavia. Quality work is the word any model should aspire to.

Congratulations Modavia for a work well done, well executed, representing with dignity and respect [and I bet lots of hard work and dedication] all SL fashion creators and designers!

I'm preparing a post - coming up next - of a fashion show I photographed. It's going to be a styling and pose exercise to all SL models. Again, I look for quality and I'm very harsh on pedantic and 'know it all' kind of people. As usual, I'll be around ;)
