Canadian designer Trill Zapatero has traveled the world and studied the textile creations of many countries. Trill has lived the bohemian lifestle. This experience of vagabonding through many countries of various traditions brought her to create Boho Hobo and Meena brands in SL. The designs are so incrediblely colourful and exciting, what even makes them stand out more is Trill’s generosity. Not only are her fabulous designs reasonabley priced, but all proceeds from all sales go to RAWA, an organization that funds orphanages, schools and clinics for refugees of the Afghan war. All of these amazing designs are available at the Boho Cultural Fair until October 31st.

Sequoia wears the mesh skinny jeans and matching Bandeau top in aqua. Mix and match is so much the ideal at Boho Hobo with selection of many seperates to create your own unique look.

Boho Hobo - For the Fair

Kymsara is wearing the Backless Choli Top & Kuci Skirt from Meena. Meena clothing and jewelry is influenced by the Afghanistan textile traditions. The backless Choli top is gathered by a soft ribbon tie above the top skirting the waistline of the vibrant Kuci skirt. Bohemian, Gypsy and Hippie influnces in the cut and style of clothes can be seen in the melting pot of world fahion and as the influence of textile traditions merge.

Butterfly Kisses of -Désir- !

Butterfly Kisses

As the seasons change and leaves fall many of us begin to spin and wrap ourselves in the warmth of our homes. Not so with Vivien Emerald, not yet anyway, she has decided to take us on a South American journey to the tropical forest where, with the magic of pixel dust, she has created one of her most stunning group gifts ever!

Butterfly Kisses

KymSara is surrounded and caressed by the most lovely plethera of irridescent Blue Morpho butterflies. This blue butterfly lives almost its entire life in the high canopy of the trees, and you too will also feel as if you were floating on air wearing this fabulous creation. You must certainly desire to own this gown, named appropriately Butterfly Kisses, from DESIR? So, don’t let the cool temperatures send you too early to your cocoon, flit and flutter your way to DESIR for your own Butterfly Kisses.

News from Paris Metro Couture!

All that glittersIt is always exciting to see what creative new designs Rose is bringing us from Paris Metro Couture, especially when she sojourns off to explore fantastic possibilities for her ongoing Story Book Collection! The inspiration for her latest addition to the collection is,”The Princess and the Goblin,” a children’s fantasy novel written by George MacDonald in 1872. As the tale unfolds Princess Irene, who lives a lonely life in a wild, desolate, mountainous kingdom, must hatch a plan to defeat the goblins and save the kingdom. Rose has interpreted Irene’s fantasy with a gown that would delight any princess. You must see all the colours and textures available. I chose the golden colour which seemed to me to not only capture the light and reflect the storybook mood, but also to touch a bit of the line reminiscent of the 1930/40 fashion eras. So off i went to Swing Times sim for this shoot! You know how i favor vintage designs, and Swing Times is a fabulous place to enjoy wearing these fashions for a trip back in time.

It's beginning to look a lot like winter

There is lots more going on at Paris Metro Couture in addition to the Story Book Collection. Rose has just released a fresh new line for the coming winter season. Highlighting this collection is her warm and snuggly Kable Cuddle Sweater and Big Cable Knit scarf with matching leggings — just the perfect outfit in which to venture out into that first frosty snowfall to watch the magic glitter of the morning sun on the trees and perhaps catch some of the season’s first snowflakes on your tongue! I discovered that the snow has already begun to fall in Hiraku, a lovely spot to visit.

Glitter Shimmer Glam

All that glitters . . .

There is reason to be thrilled when any formal invitation arrives this fall… Black and White and everyshade of the monochromatic spectrum are being seen at white tie events. Mohna Lisa Couture has a selection of wonderfully designed gowns that will do wonders to show off your figure and are amazingly inventive! This is the Erotica Mesh gown seen here worn by Sequoia. This silhouette dress will amaze both the one wearing it and those who see it passing by. The sheer sides of this optical illusion gown actually have colour change panels. These panels, under the sheer fabric, are able to match all skin tones, so they achieve that silhouette and remain modest like dancers costumes. Secondly, the skirting glimmers and shimmers as you move a unique effect perfected for this gown. This is not scripted or particle in any way, it is entirely accomplished by how Mohna textured the gown. The included Fascinator rises above in a flourish with optional veil and adds an adittional flair to an already very fascinating gown.

Julia and Julie

Next we have Kymsara wearing the extremely provacative Julia gown with a pewter and sterling finish. The fabric is tailored exqusitely to form, capturing the light and the shadow cast so perfectly across satin patterned fabric. The silk highlights continue as the sheer threads woven into this organza skirt are fluid with her every move. The over the shoulder collar is also sheer and swoops down to frame the deep plunging neckline. The same fabric is used as cuffs to the sterling stiched gloves, giving the entire gown an attratively complete finish.

MLC Yolanda

Last we come to the Yolanda Glittery Black gown from Mohna Lisa worn by Sequoia. This black full skirted bit of artistic mastery cannot be captured well by mere photography, it must be seen worn to be appreciated. Like the Erotica gown above, Mohna has woven his magic glimmer shimmer into the skirt. Do not wear this to any events where you are trying to remain unnoticed. The plume of this gown will sweep across the floor capturing all eyes. What is best is that it flows below the shimmer of the black satin rising to silhouette your magnificent form. There is a certain assymetry to the cut of the Yolanda Glittery Black which encouraged Sequoia to take some chances with this gown and wear some jewels and hair that might not be the most traditional for such a formal white tie event. The Ireth Chain Halo Headpiece and earrings from PurpleMoon available through L’accessoires are absolutely perfectly suited to the braided mesh locks from Elemental Hair that fall wonderfully off the open end of the assymentric collar.

The Autumn LeavesMorgane Batista has lined up some outstanding designers for this year’s Runway Perfect Hunt and they have pulled out all the stops for this much anticipated annual event! We are seeing some new designers with some amazing gifts as well as some of the traditional participants who have maintained the superb standards this Hunt is known for. Let’s start off with the gift outfit from Luziefee, a delightful jacket and pants outfit in yummy fall colours. On those warmer than fall days you can doff the jacket and enjoy the comfort of a sleeveless top and high waist pants. Luzie has included matching shoes and a pretty little floral necklace in her boxas well. I added the earrings from Tosy Xue’s latest release – appropriately called Autumn Leaves as well. Please note the poses too! No Runway Hunt would be complete without a stop at our pose makers. This set is called Princess – from PosEsioN!

Betty - Ready for the Hunt!

From CHG Fashion we find this kicky little “Betty” vintage outfit. You know i have a special place in my heart for things vintage, especially the fabulous 50s era. This outfit also comes with all the parts including shoes, undies, and big period hoops. The shoes and the matching bag (which i only discovered after the shoot) are actually from AHG Design. I am suspecting that you’ll need to search from them separately but, it will be worth the effort! These poses are the Hunt gifts from the Morphine Store.
