A Guest Blog by Gloria Silverstone – Originally blogged [HERE]fashionart1024

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 hereMay 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.

I Like Big Bows And I Can Not Lie

Snapshot_003Yes, it’s true… I have a thing for big bows!  I have seen a huge response to the new Phat Azzes lol, but what about the bows?   They don’t get nearly the attention they deserve.  Have you guys seen the new group  gift at =MODA=?  It has a most excellent bow on it!

After joining the free inworld =MODA= group you gain access to their Alice Vintage Bow Dress which is a gorgeous mesh design with a very versatile HUD that allows for 5 dress textures, two choices for bow colours and two choices for netting, so really, it’s like a bazillion dresses.  The combinations are endless!  I snapped a quick screencap of the hud so that you can see all of the options below. (ETA:  The group is now 150L to join)

Another quick mention… The pose I used in the above photo was part of a 4pk subscribo gift from .mien. poses.  I know this gift is being switched out soon, so if you are in need of some new cute poses, go slap that subscribomatic quick!

Snapshot_005

Hiya Fabulouses!  You’ll have to forgive my absence.  I have had one very busy week, but I plan to do some major catch up this weekend and next week!  Thank goodness to our wonderful team of bloggers that have been keeping FabFree hopping with freebies and deals this week!  I have a little quickie to show you today…

Newly approved FabDesigner Princess Oddities has placed out a really cute  charcoal coloured Tunic Dress with a sweet heart print at FabFree Headquarters.  Please welcome them by heading down to FFHQ, trying out their gift design and check out their mainstore if you like what you see 😉  Thank you Princess Oddities for the adorable gift!
