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.

Blues from London to St. Louis

Starlight Blue

Life was so busy this summer and we couldn’t quite make it to London in RL for the debut of Meiling’s 24 Hours Collection but, we have thoroughly enjoyed reviewing the SL counterparts to this fabulous collection. Meiling has embraced the mesh media in designing these new outfits and the results are enchanting. Sequoia is showing the Starlight Blue Lace Dress with the matching lace Dress Pants, an eye-catching combination, further enhanced by the addition of the new Sails Jewelry ensemble from Tosy Xue of WTG Jewelry. Scarlett Heels from Kalnins finish the look with an especially unique and elegant touch.

Jolie Bleue

Meet me in St.Louis? KymSara found some especially fun accessories to add an almost playful touch to her choice of Meiling’s Jolie Bleue Top and Skirt. She looks so adorable in the oversize Bold Ribbon hairbow from NYU, which seems a perfect accent along with the geometrically sculpted Plated Cuff Bracelet from GOTZSCHE. Both of these pieces are from the debut selections at L’accessoires. The styling is cute and timeless, but definitely hints at bygone days of summers at the World’s Fair. So why St. Louis you say, well it’s the home of the Blues and also the setting for the movie “Meet Me in St. Louis”, and in these blue hues you will really “Skip to My Lou” singing the Blues!

Hope for Emilia – Miss Darcy

Hope flows

Hope for Emilia event is drawing to a close and it was a smashing success for organizer Anna Saphire and friends, but she would want me to remind you the sim and the shops are not closed yet. There is still time to run over to pick up what we think are two of the loveliest mesh exclusives from Miss Darcy.

Sequoia wasn’t a fan of mesh at first, but is coming around quickly. It is hard not to love what mesh offers when you get such lovely texture and skirt flexibility. The lines of the Marilyn dress from Miss Darcy are so clean, and the floral embroidery of the sings with a flourish only silk thread could manage. Certainly worth a last minute look and all to benefit people displaced from their homes.

Miss Darcy's Hope

KymSara looks all sunny and bright in the Marilyn Gold gown which shows just how sculpted and form fitting the mesh fabric is. The shading and dip of the fabric and crease in the folds of the skirt give the dress such depth and will definitely give off that feeling of bringing home the gold in the fashion olympics. Plus how can you not feel good about being so generous and looking so incredible in return.

The event will carry on at many of the sponsor stores, so if you miss your opportunity to make that last minute dash to the shopping sim you can still contribute to help the people of Italy effected by this natual catastrophy. More information at the Hope for Emila blog

Meiling goes to London! A Major Hit!

O so many colours!

While we are huddled round our TV’s cheering on the gymnasts, swimmers, divers and all the other incredible athletes at the Summer Olympics there are other very noteworthy events happening in London. Today there was a showcase of a few specially handpicked Caribbean designers at the Olympics and SL’s own Meiling previewed her latest collection there in RL! Of course before Meiling became “SL’s own” she was a major star in the RL fashion galaxy. She has come to love Second Life and actually released the SL version of this new “24 Hours Collection” before she left for London! Previews of what has not even hit the big runways of RL; dont you just love SL! Here are a few of the delightful outfits that wowed the audience at the Olympic exhibit.

Beautifully executed in mesh, the stunningly colorful Harlequin gown will definitely be a standout ensemble at the `Fashion Engage’ Olympic Showcase and the season’s gala events in SL.

O so many colours!

Denim goes to town

Meiling has a distinctively unique approach to utilizing unusual fabrics in unexpected combinations in her designs. Her new Moonglow Denim Skirt and Blouse ensemble shows that signature style beautifully. This outfit is available in both mesh and flexi skirt versions. I love the look of Lindy’s terrific Kitten Heels with this skirt!

Hope for Emilia – Cool Summer Breeze

Pixie green

No matter how you see things, with vivid colour or in a monochromatic mood, Hope for Emilia is keeping summer alive. As the cool summer breezes soothe the summer’s heat, so does a trip to Hope for Emilia satisfy that need for retail therapy. MOLiCHiNO continues to add the must have in mesh to our wardrobes, with this Pixie dress available in citrus green only at Hope for Emilia. The Pixie’s dresses design is so special and distinct, i have not seen any like it in all sl. So cute and demure the pleated shift design is so modest with a square cut neckline and capped sleeves, but still so sexy with it’s mini length. Certainly to catch more than a few eyes as you walk on by.

For a Sunny Day in Emilia

I always enjoy discovering a “new to me” designer — especially, one with a fresh look and a creative approach. A visit to Elmont Fashions at Hope for Emilia satisfied all these notions! Black & white is one of my favorite themes and Aubry Brinner has used it very nicely in her Daylight Sundress, an exclusive release for the Hope for Emilia Event. I am also enjoying the Grande Soiree Swirls Necklace fresh from Aidorou and still exploring all the delightful makeup colors from FacePaint, both available at the Hope for Emilia event.

Haute & Soft & Fast!

Haute gal in town

Out for an afternoon of shopping, Sequoia has it all together in this eye catching ensemble styled around Paris Metro’s Scribble Cocktail Dress. She was so taken with this ensemble that includes the hat, that she created a matching bag and jewelry of her own modified design to match. No stopping there she took a yellow cab to MStyle to pick up the perfect shoes. And those legs!!!  Are you taking a long look? . . .

Were you wondering too? how could an elephant stand on those?! Ohhhh . . . you thought i meant Sequoia’s legs . . . mmm hmm!

Soft evening breeze

A bit later that evening we meet up with KymSara . . . , the party was lovely, but it is time for a breath of fresh air and a quiet stroll on the beach. The Mountain Satin dress, NEW from Paris Metro, is a classic look with a contemporary feel accentuated by a vintage straw hat draped with a colourful sash. The Mountain Satin dress is perfect for a look that will take you through the afternoon into an evening of cocktails on the patio at the club and, finally, under the moon with wedgesandals in hand, being chased by the waves and a soon to be dear loved one. Carefree, the skirt is sheer heaven and will float and flutter making the evening breeze even more inviting.

Haute hoggin'

Ever the consummate stylist, Sequoia was back the next day going round and round and after a rather loud exhausted search she found the perfect accessories to go with her new Racing Baggies Pants and Halter Top from Paris Metro. One thing is certain and you can take it to the bank. The Racing Baggies Pants and Halter Top will most definitely show off your curves and the will rev up your favorite race fan; talk about your fashion “cycle”. Are you with me so far? Are you on “track”? Now i know what you are thinking so she is on a motorcycle, so what, you may even think its easy to shoot fashion pics, right? Hah! After a stack of blurred images i got one! Sequoia, in her bee coloured outfit, has a lot to buzz about and you too should be taking the fast lane to Paris Metro.

More Mesh from PurpleMoon

It's a Bed of Roses!

Poulet Koenkamp is really on a roll with her elegant mesh releases from Purple Moon! Her fab Bed of Roses Gown, shown here in but one of the yummy colors, is definitely a front-runner in mesh design. While we were a bit skeptical that we’d see our favorite designers really embrace this new medium, the consistently beautiful and well-fitted offerings from PurpleMoon are showing that it can be done very well indeed. Seq found the Teal and Grape colors ideal for her graceful Nena jewelry ensemble from Aurora Borealis and was delighted that the hemline allows her to show off her new Goshi Pumps from Mstyle.

Just meshing around in the studio

And, speaking of hemlines! The little Julia Balloon dress from PurpleMoon raises both the hemline, and the bar in mesh design. This a most comfortable dress which has some wonderful movement and enables one to sit down gracefully, without having parts vanish into the pose! If you haven’t yet tried any mesh designs this dress would make an excellent first run. Comfortable, and easy to dress up or stay casual. Fay’s Dorian platform heels work extremely well for a evening of dancing at the club, and provide a good reason to sit down and enjoy that mesh flexibility too.
