Ebony and Ivory : In Pefect Harmony

Fresh Desir!

Vivien Emerald ushers us into the spring fashion season with a spectacular series of gowns and costumes from DESIR Haute Couture that were designed for candidates in the Miss Virtual World competition. The Ashia Gown is a spectacular, strapless, layered design incorporating both light translucent layers and tone-on-tone silk for a dramatic and yet flowing look.
KymSara chose the noir (black) version of this gown and Sequoia the blanc (white).

DESIR White Ashia

Kym really like’s Yula’s innovative creation of a jeweled fascinator headpiece and the NEW Shameless Ensemble available from Finesmith Jewelry.

SHAME on me!

Sequoia chose a traditional pearl set from WTG called Pearly Shell to complement the Chinese Shena head piece which is included with the dress.

More gowns of Desir

All that Glitters . . .When my friend Norma saw my photos of the Starline Gown; one of Vivien Emerald’s latest releases from Desir Haute Couture, she exclaimed, “O Kym, the stuff of my childhood dreams!” And, I would venture to guess that it may very well be the stuff of some “all-grown-up dreams” for many of us as well. Vivien continues to bring us the most exquisite designs. This gown really is worthy of some very close scrutiny. The complex swirls of the billowing silk are meticulously and symmetrically assembled to accentuate the pattern which is introduced as a theme on the corset top – a veritable visual symphony! You must experience the rhythmic flow of the gown to fully appreciate the complete design. While it is dramatically large, it moves with the gentle grace we have come to recognize as a characteristic of Desir gowns. I also found Belle Roussel’s recently released Tabula Rasa jewelry ensemble from Chop Zuey Couture Jewelry to be a delightful accent. I believe I would be wearing this gown for weeks . . . if I didn’t have a few more from Desir to unpack and shoot!

A Formal Affair in a Marshmellow World

Next on my fave list from DESIR  is the January Group gift – a Winter Gown in glistening snow white satin embellished with cascading snowflakes on the cowl cape. It seemed just the ensemble for a formal winter affair at Takalo, a simply amazing sim, with more beautiful snow than I have found anywhere in SL. Yula Finesmith’s new Papiyon Ensemble, in platinum, added a matching touch of jewelry elegance. And, my little feathered escorts seemed pleased with my choices!

One misty morning, early . . .

In the midst of the chill of the bleak mid-winter I find myself anticipating the coming of spring and all the blooms that accompany the reawakening of my mountains. I think Vivien must have had similar thoughts as she created two dazzling new gowns with warm floral motifs from Desir Haute Couture. The Rehana Wisteria, is simply fabulous. From the billowing lace underskirts, to the richly embroidered theme blooms and the warm color accents this gown whispers the news of coming warm breezes and morning garden freshness. I love the natural blues Vivien selected for this gown and was delighted to find a perfectly matching jewelry ensemble among the vivid colors of NES – Finesmith Jewelry’s very latest release.

O, my stars . . .

Desir’s other new floral theme gown – the Sayoka –  captures Vivien’s enchantment with the delicate sakura flower blooms which she recently discovered. While the lines of this  figure-focused gown are truly dramatic enough to warrant attention, the incredible embroidery on the sheer deep cut back panel will certainly draw that second and third admiring look. The lovely hair flower and a matching ring are part of the Sayoka offering. I’ve added tosy Xue’s Magical Circle Earrings from WTG Jewelry and the bold red Dawn bracelets from Finesmith Jewelry for my shoot under the stars at the magical Tempura sim.

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.

Sydney Fashion Week

Dusk at Sydney Harbour

The Sydney Opera House is easily one of he most recognizable architectural designs in the world today. But, the spotlight this week was illuminating quite another set of marvelous designs as Sydney Fashion Week twenty12 rocked the grid with multiple fantastic shows featuring many of SL’s finest designers. These designers really pulled out all the stops to make each of the shows breath-takingly spectacular! As hard as it was to single out one favorite designer — let alone one favorite item — I lost no time making straight for the Desir display following the show featuring Vivien Emerald’s awesome gowns.

Dusk at Sydney Harbour

I chose her Sydney gown as my pick of the week. Vivien captured the splash of the surf off the coast of the Sydney Harbour with the selection of perfect silks. The Sydney gown is cut to uniquely express the curling waves and fine mist, and Vivien even added a delicate shoulder fastener for the trailing veil, constructed from fine specimens of shells and coral from the Great Barrier Reef, and floating bubbles of sea spray! All in all a simply marvelous creation, which is a dream to wear. Tosy Xue’s Luce della notte scura Earrings, in deep marine blue, and Pearly Shell Nails seemed the perfect choice to continue the oceanic theme.

By Candlelight

by Candleight

Some clothes seem to inspire a mood. The new Red Kimono Gift Gown from Desir did just that for me, calling out for a candlelight evening and a special shoot. We have noted here before that Vivien Emerald draws her elegant designs from a broad cultural perspective. With this gown she clearly captures the fabric motif and influence of the broad ties of the traditional Kimono, and then expands her vision to a softly flowing modern gown. The exquisite design is matched with flawless workmanship that we see from the few designers who truly value their group members and always include their best work in their gifts. Yula Finesmith’s Shea jewelry ensemble and Rave Red nails, complete this  refined and distinctively feminine look.

Hope for Emilia

Athena for Emilia

Vivien Emerald – of Desir – is not only designing phenomenal gowns, but is creating them specifically to support some very critical and important causes. Her signature cultural awareness is reflected in Athena – her offering for the “Hope for Emilia” program [ View Video Here ]. Athena is the goddess of wisdom, courage, and inspiration, certainly three traits of those who have put forth their effort to help the people of Northern Italy, many thousands who were left homeless after the earthquakes and subsequent aftershocks in late May to early June of this year.

Athena for Emilia

The flaming red color and figure-hugging silhouette of Athena remind us of not only of the lines of ancient Roman dress, but also of the great Italian sirens of the silver screen. Vivien’s homage to the rich heritage of Style Italia helps us stay focused on the objective of providing relief and support for the people of the Emilia-Romagna region. All of the proceeds from sale of this gown and the designs of other participants, you will see stamped with the Hope For Emilia logo, in this and other blogs, will go to directly to the people of Emilia-Romagna.

Vivien does Vivienne!

Vivien on Vivienne

I would strongly suggest you make some time to swing by the MANIERA sim before Sunday. MANIERA is hosting a Tribute to Vivienne Westwood Exhibition, as part of their launch as a real life digital publication. The exhibit is a fascinating glimpse into the artistic creations of the amazing British designer – Dame Vivienne Westwood. Now in her 70’s, Westwood still manages to shock and surprise and amazingly has remained at the forefront of fashion design for 40 years. As part of the exhibit, eighteen SL designers were invited to create a tribute piece inspired by Westwood’s work. Of the many exiting and exclusive designs my hands down favorite is Vivien Emerald’s Vivienne Dress. Surprising, in so many ways, pink plaid being just one! The Vivienne dress will certainly get you that wow factor and many will do a double take at the magnificently definitive cut and standout style.

There are just a few day left for the show items on the MANIERA sim. The designer tribute vendors will go away on Sunday 15th, so i suggest you rush over now to grab these unique items in the style of Vivienne Westwood, and while you there be sure to take in the Tribute to Westwood Exhibit [click for limo].
