So a new round started from yesterday at the Fashion Collective.
Did i told you already how much i love this event ? Yesssss .
But before starting telling us about this new round in this so great place, i have some lil informations id like to share with you.
I’ll be exhibiting some of my artworks from my “Wandering alone” exhibition (currently displayed at my artgallery) at the really famous Raglan Shire Artwalk. Its a huge artistic event gathering every year from 8 years already a lot of artists in SL.
The event will start on the sunday, may 4th and will end on sunday may 25th.
I will of course post about it as soon it will start.
The second event i want to tell you about is the Penumbra fashion week 2014.
Petit Chat will be present at this huge fashion event with my ArtFashion productline.
You’ll find there some of the exclusive dresses i made for the Fashion Collective, but also some new and exclusive releases i am currently creating for this very special event.
The high point will be the fashion show. It will happen on tuesday may 27th at 2pm SLT and Petit Chat items will be displayed by profesional models with other clothes from Glam Dreams and Giulia Design.
Of course ill post the slurl in time.
In june, ill be also participating to the the Fashion For Life event, with also a fashion show, but ill tell you more later.
For now, let’s focus on the new round of Fashion collective !
As you can see the decor set by Nayomi Gartner, the talented manager of the event, is the same than for the previous round. A gorgeous and green camp lost somewhere in the mounts.
23 incredible designers are bringing to you here some exclusive items on the theme “lightness of lace”.
Of course the theme has been interpretated in many ways by each of them.
For this round, i created 2 new dresses under my ArtFashion productline. Both dresses have been textured from 2 abstract pics i made from an exhibition i saw last year at SL 10 birthday event.
The exhibition was called Once upon in Second Life and i made from it 2 artworks, called Rainbow trip and Rainbow acid.
Of course both dresses have materials enabled.
The first one is a beautiful gown : Rainbow Trip.
You can find the original paint here : Rainbow Trip in Flikr
Here is how it look if you run with non ultra graphic performance (without advanced lighting model and ambiant occlusion checked in your preference menu/graphic performance tab).
As you can see it’s a really colored and brightful gown. The top is covered with lace added on the fabric.
Now let’s turn our graphic performance to ultra and check how these materials features are looking.
And let’s take a close look to the laced top part :
Materials maps have been created separatly for each part, then gathered together, for being more realistic.
The second item i created for this round is a shorter dress and textured with my Rainbow Acid pic . You can see it in my Flick stream (clic the link).
The rainbow acid dress is also really colored and has a seducive piece of lace in the bottom.
This is how it look with middle graphic performance.
Let’s turn now our graphic performance to ultra :))
So this is what you will see, if you enable the materials features on your viewer. Here too, lace and fabric have been mapped separately in order to render a more realistic relief.
And guess whose stall we see behind me ? Hehehehhehe… my friend Pinkrayne is also part of this round, with her store Holy shirt.
She created some one sleeve tops really lovely for the occasion.
The great thing about the rainbow acid dress, is that for many shapes you wont need even to wear an alpha layer. I’ve tried each of the 5 sizes with standard sized shapes and of course with my usual one and i may say i could avoid to wear an alpha for every of them. Of course, we know all that there is almost as much different shapes in sl than in RL, so we can’t make a rule of it but still, maybe you’ll be lucky enough for this apply to you.
So now, i think i have talked enough, and it’s time to go for shopping at The Fashion Collective event (clic to get the slurl).
I already did a lil shopping there and brought some nice lil things at home hehehehhehehe
See ya there !
