If you have been putting off your visit to SL8B perhaps you had better do it today, the gates close at 11:59 pm slt July 2nd. A good place to start would be at the Meiling exhibit. Below is the press release outlining the event. I offer you my own stylings of the Windsong dress which is shown in the RL creation process and available for sale at the exhibit and in the Meiling store.
Iconic RL fashion designer Meiling based in Trinidad launched her brand in SL (in collaboration with BOSL) on May 1 this year. Her entry has been likened to a stone sending ripples throughout a pond as the SL replicas are astoundingly realistic and sometimes even better than the real thing!
The Magic Of Meiling at SL8B takes the visitor through the creation process of an outfit in her latest collection which just premiered at Caribbean Fashion Week 2011.
We not only see photographs of the outfit made in RL and a fitting with a RL model, but also the parallel production in SL of the Meiling Couturier avatar creating and preparing the prims. It is an exhibition which reveals the magic behind the creative genius of the RL designs and the superb technical execution of the SL renditions. Please visit this rare glimpse into a fashion designer’s RL and SL atelier.
