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.

Ebony, Ivory , working together in perfect harmony !

This exclusive dress is only one of the technocolour marvels you can feast upon at the Masai Mara show. She has given it a bit of a vintage feel here adding Sandye footwear from Lindy’s Modern and Retro Shoes.

The model in the photos overlooking the audience is Starline Igeria, the founder of this event. Showing her humbleness, she was rather shocked to see Sequoia had placed, without her knowledge, her beautiful african queen photo, framing the runway. She spoke of the group effort all that have been involved in putting this all together and looked forward to sharing her thanks personally today with all involved and who have contributed.

MASAI MARA Fashion Show

Fiercely Regal is the Jaguar

Monarch of all she surveys

Starline Igeria’s MASAI MARA: The Solidarity Store has some exciting surprises to share, all with the specific purpose of benefiting children of Kenya. All benefits from the store go to the KIBERA YOUTH INITIATIVE – MAMA TUNZA PROJECT which provides a home for about 200 children, most of whom are orphans of HIV/AIDS or come from single parent homes.

Monarch of all She Surveys

Many of SL’s finest designers have responded to this challenge with both generosity and creative vision. Kimmera Madison Fall of Tres Beau has created an exclusive gown named Jaguar, for this event, which is truly worthy of African Monarchy. Drawing influence from the feline grace of the jaguar and the traditional wrap lines of formal African regional attire, this gown is both fierce and alurring in its use of fabrics and animal prints.

Monarch of all she surveys

Sleek lines and detailed stictching embrace the shared world order of the preditory cat, as rosettes of the Jaguar are set against spots of the Leopard, it’s African cousin. The gown is appropriately named Jaguar, although a South American cat, the jaguar is a common symbol of strength and power much as the leopard. There is a spiritual connection between them and thus a continental and universal appeal that will fill you with a sense of control of all you survey. The jaguar is one of the rarest cats and so is the gown and you must not let it slip through your fingers. The “Jaguar” from Tres Beau is an exclusive only at MASAI MARA: The Solidarity Store so you might want to snare it before it becomes extinct.

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.

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.

A new dress, new shoes and a new shoe shop . . . life is good on the grid!

New Shoes and Lindy's New Shop!

Fresh as a daisy, this new Carmen Mesh dress from M&M is a perfect little sundress for a fun day of summer shopping and taking in the Vintage Fair. Must take advantage before it slips away. Just as i was considering where to start, i got a call from my dear friend Lindy inviting me over to check out her newest boutique shop of Lindy’s Modern and Retro Shoes. There, among the blooming daisies, Lindy was busily arranging her latest creations and welcoming customers. If you have not yet discovered Lindy’s shoes, you have a treat in store. She spotted a niche and started designing quality shoes to go with Retro and Vintage styles some time ago, and has been adding delightful new creations as she has grown from that first small shop to a chain! Her Mum style – with thick heels and a little flower ornament – was a snap to match up to my new dress with Lindy’s wonderful colorchange hud. You gotta go visit her new shop! Especially now that you have snapped up so much from the Vintage Fair that are in need of some new shoes to match.

Hope for Emilia – Just Glow with the Flow

a title=”Aglow for Emilia by KymSara, on Flickr” href=”http://www.flickr.com/photos/kymsara/7631772852/”>Aglow for Emilia

The elegant Sony Elee Sab Gown from Celestina’s Weddings, is most assuredly, not reserved strictly for weddings! The rich tone-on-tone fabric, and choice of three different skirt configurations – from a completely dance-manageable, all the way to the grand flowing version shown here,  ensure this stunning creation will be a standout to be worn around SL’s finest ballrooms as well as the wedding chapels. The fine design of the Sony Elee Sab Gown, which uses mesh and flexi components to great advantage, is matched by a perfect fit.  From the alpha match, to the bodice drape it was delightful to find things so easy to adjust. The Smoke Camel makeup set from FacePaint, exclusive for the Hope for Emilia event, adds just the right touch of color for this formal look. And, I love Tosy Xue’s Plume jewelry which gives just the right accent to astonish in this versatile gown.

Leri Miles Designs is offering a magnificent selection “Eliza” – a softly flowing mesh gown in the dreamiest colors – exclusively for the Hope for Emilia event. It was a very difficult choice, but i settled on the “Kiwi” color combination, and added Chop Zuey’s exclusive and unique Migonette Jewelry Ensemble, and Face Paint’s Smoke  Blue makeup to finish the look. The Hope for Emilia designers have really risen to the occasion for this event, providing some truly wonderful opportunities to add fabulous pieces to our wardrobes while providing some genuine relief to our troubled neighbors in Italy. The Hope for Emilia event runs through August 9th.
