The Edge of Glory for legendary Gianni Versace

For many fashion lovers out there, Versace is fashion powerhouse. For those not familiar, Versace is a well-known fashion house founded in 1978 which produces accessories, fragrances, makeup and home furnishings as well as clothes. What many people might not know is that its original designer and founder, Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace, was murdered back in 1997 but the brand still lives on.

To showcase some vintage items by Versace, I’ll let everyone view the new Lady Gaga video for inspiration since many in our community seem to love the artist. Lady Gaga gives her nod to Versace in the “Edge of Glory” video by wearing exclusively vintage Versace.

Inspire that. Vintage Versace.

Black & Blue Fair ~ Coming Soon

B L A C K      &      B L U E      F A I R
Fashion for Mental Health Awareness

June 4th – July 3rd a selection of your favourite designers will be presenting us with brand new items at the Black and Blue Fair… these items will be available at the fair and no where else (at least til its over)… Clothing, skins, hair, poses, accessories and more… we’ve got you covered.

The location remains undisclosed for now, but join our update group and we will keep you up to date with the latest information as it breaks.

The purpose of this fair is two-fold… firstly, FASHION. Who doesn’t love a good fashion event? Brand new items, some at discount rates, all in one glorious place?  Lovely.  Secondly though, there will be information about all sorts of mental health issues and illnesses throughout the venue.  Mostly these will be visual aids around the precious couture so that people don’t have to read huge chunks of text.  The main purpose of the fair is to de-stigmatise mental health issues… a lot of people in Second Life have unhappy “real lives”… for whatever reason. Some of us are unwell, disabled, depressed and other people are just lonely or don’t like who they think they are.. But no one is alone, and in SL we can be ourselves. So don’t let it beat you black and blue… Couture can help!
