Fashion For Life Fair

It's time! Tomorrow, Saturday, Fashion for Life is opening its doors for its 9 sims and till March 22 you'll get all the fashion you could dream of. A 180 stores are participating this year, which pretty much means all the greatest designers of SL will be there, suppporting the good course. The theme this year will be “Beyond Black and White,” embodying the spirit of cancer survivors everywhere as they find hope rising out of the dark diagnosis of cancer. All your donations will go to SL Relay for Life, benefiting the American Cancer Society. You'll find more information and details on the Fashion for Life site -

I have the pleasure to have already received some of the great items you can find at the fair. Naturally I can't blog all the goodies, but Im gonna blog a few teasers for now along with some more informaton I've received about the course and fair and then I'll blog some more in the coming days.

Above photo is showing the Pop Dress, a contribution from Nyte'N'Day. I'm so loving the artisic and cute little prints, creating a natural flow with the feminine bow. This also comes in a RFL edition which is white with a bow in hot pink.

The FFL team explains that the theme of Fashion for Life this year is “Beyond Black and White.” Instead of doing themes that were based on locales or one monolithic theme, they came upon the idea of making the sims in black and white -like a black and white photo. This is to reinforce how cancer is no longer a black and white diagnosis because of the work of the American Cancer Society. They provide funds, programs and support that takes cancer “beyond black and white.” Designers and builders were given this theme and encouraged to interpret it as they pleased

And then we have this cute set of the Chloe jeans and Samantha top from Fab.Pony. The jeans are high wasted and therefore helps making your legs seems very long. They come with two sets of prim cuffs, one for flats and one for heels. The V-neck top is simple and feminine with a play of white and silver stripes, making it useful for many things.

Remember the the team behind FFL is entirely volunteer driven and 100% of the funds raised are presented as a charitable donation to ACS from the residents of Second Life. Check out the website where a running total will be shown and you can keep track to the minute how the donating is going.

Above of here I'm showing the lovely Languid Party Dress in the color Goldenrod from Vanitas Vesture. A full skirt with simple clean lines, but super elegant, just need to put it together with the right hair and shoes to underline it and you'd be good for any cocktail party. This dress comes in various colors, so be sure to check out if you like the shape of the dress.

Last but least, im featuring above this dres called Catch Lilli from LeeZu Designs. I totally adore this dress because the many details such as elegant shape of the collar and the vivid fabric that keeps the black and white from ever being borring. Don't worry it comes in more colorful variation too, if you prefer that. In the folder you'll find the skirt in a flexy, non flexy like above ad a baby doll version. Índeed one of my favorites from the fair.

Fashion for Life is the evolution of the RFL Clothing Fair. This new fair includes not just clothing, but anything an avatar can wear such as skins, shoes, hair, and accessories. Now the American Cancer Society sponsors the sims so all donations go directly to them to offset those costs and to add to the general fund. Finally, the name change indicates how Fashion for Life is not a Relay for Life team effort (as it was in the past) but an entity separate from the RFL teams. Here showing the main sponsers of the fair and the sim named after reknowned black and white photographers, according to the theme.

Each designer donated money to have a store on the sims and committed to donate four items whose income goes to the American Cancer Society 100%. VIP Sponsors made higher donations and Sim Sponsors made substantially larger donations. This means that 1,100,000L has already been raised via sponsorships.

This will be all from me for today, Ill be sure to post more as soon as possible, there is a bunch of great dresses and a hunt and gatchas to report. Now Im guessing, you'd like a link? :) Here it comes, but remember fair is not opening til Saturday march 12, once it do, go shop and donate, this is for a good course that most of us has experience with in some way. Be sure to help us all and keep your prim count down we're here to help after all, so make room to shop for as many people as possible
