A Guest Blog by Gloria Silverstone – Originally blogged [HERE]
This week marks the beginning of the FashionArt Fair, from May 9 -31 and The Girl with the Big Earrings Hunt, runs simultaneously featuring 10 edgy accessories, costing $1L each at Earth Nirvana’s store Earth, (hunt hints here, May 4-24, 2014). All garments are from the FashionArt Fair and most accessories are almost free on The Girl with the Big Earrings Hunt ($1L each) at [Earth]. Hunt hints and more information can be found here. This is a perfect fusion of design and accessories to create your own “walking canvas.”
The concept of the FashionArt Fair is the designer is an artist and their medium is clothing or accessories, just as the painter uses canvas, or the sculptor uses clay or metal to portray his vision.
Designers and artists flirt ever closer with the idea that fashion is about much more than just dress and appearance. Fashion can break all boundaries! Wearers can be walking canvases! In the tradition of art, fashion now bravely explores and portrays highly charged moments of emotion, romanticism, sexuality, modernism, history and culture.
In May 2014 we challenge the designers of Second Life to design one exclusive piece that is inspired by a favourite artist, Choose – Sculpture, installation, design, drawing, painting. Whether it is Renaissance, Cubist, Post Modern, Pop Art, Impressionist.
**Please note I will post the Landmark for the FashionArt Fair on Friday, May 9, 2014 when the event opens.
