Call for Couture is in the final stages of setting up, the vendors are set out in a follow the road kind of style, and I for one like the idea of walking up one side and back down the other, that way if you did ‘hmmm maybe’ over an item, you are definitely returning to its location on your way back to the start.
The idea of Couture vs Pret a Porter came to Keira Seerose she tells me while in conversation with some other people, fine tuning the idea was the next step and then executing it. There have been many ‘Exclusive/Auctions ” over the years, but none to my memory that have given the viewers a little nibble of something extra to take away with them. Not everyone can guarantee that they will have the funds for the highest bid, but to be able to still buy an item that was made for the event is really nice planning.
I for one would have liked to see more designers pushing themselves out of their comfortzones, or even their own known for style, one stand out for me at the preview that did do that was Hucci, those that are familiar with her work know that the usual hucci style is just that, HUCCI. The gown that was produced for this event as the Couture item was stunning, and I do hope that the designer considers delivering more of that style in the future.
CHIC Management are organising the event, and over the last few months, they have not stopped with incredible awareness events, and charitable ones. So be sure to check out what they are up to next if you want to be part of something well organised and for good causes. This cause is The Samaritans which are a nonÂ judgemental organisation that helps those that may be feeling overwhelmed with what life throws at them, and could possibly be feeling so at a loss that they feel suicide is the alternative.
Having lost a friend at 18 to suicide, I hope that this event helps people understand what OTHER options there are. I think that this cause is a great one. The donations will come from 50% of the Auctioned items, but also there are donation kiosks in the sign at the front of the landing area.
The first items I am showing are from sYs a new to me store that has a definite Cyber theme running all through it, we actually went to check out the store itself tonight too, and wow what vendor ads these items have, really impressive work.
The skins, the shoes/boots, and clothing is all from under the same two sister designers roof, and are fun and sexy. The items are no mod but have a hud you can use for resizing, this was a new approach to me, and I am not sure if it is a script resources thing, or just another system, a bit tricky at first but overall worked well. The clothes and boots and skins are all at Call for Couture, so be sure to check their space out when your there on the 10th of October, so only a few more days, or of course you can visit their store now for some of the items.
The hair base tattoos I am wearing are the new release from UnBra skins, and wow the styles are awesome, I am so in love with the blonde one that you could even give up prims for this altogether if a tight short style is your thing. Very Madonna in her big suit days, there are demos and lots of options, i will show more in the next post.
