BOSL Fashion Week

BOSL FASHION WEEK 2011

Dear Fashionistas and Amigos:

Grab your totes, gird up your corsets, and dress to impress!  The Style Armageddon is upon us!  The final runway rapture is looming!  Welcome to BOSL FASHION WEEK 2011!

The cacophony of conflicting trends, incomprehensible chic offerings, and maniacal “must haves” is bigger and louder than ever!  This year we break the mold as you witness the most titillating, tumultuous, fabulously haute couture, gloriously glam-obsessed, deliciously deranged, and relentlessly entertaining week of fashion to hit the grid!  You are about to embark on a fashion journey that will inspire and rejuvenate, and nobody is immune!

Cutting-edge, trend-making, dazzling sets that will overwhelm the senses, built by top-of-the-line SL architects and award winning artists; the grid’s top models show us their fashion-savvy styling talents and choreography – and both SL and RL fashion designers present their latest fashion designs that run the gamut from sophisticated elegance, to dark decadence, to no-boundary avant-garde, to abstract couture, to “comic book couture,” to a walk-back-in-time tribute to SL’s fashion industry.  And our first look at the Official Candidates for the 2012 MISS VIRTUAL WORLD Pageant.  It’s all here to be experienced and savored for one week only!

You DARE NOT miss one minute of BOSL FASHION WEEK 2011!

BOSL AWARDS 2011

Congratulations again to everyone nominated. There are a  lot of really talented and superb people in the fashion industry. I wish you all the best and may you all continue to shine with your talent and style, whether you take home an award or not.

I want to thank everyone who voted for me for the Top Male Model BOSL Awards. It was quite a surprise since I have not been as active in the Fashion Industry these past few months (as much as I want to) due to RL concerns. It is an honor to be named in this category with the other superb nominees. Anyone of these great gentleman is deserving of the title and I’m happy because they are all my friends. Thank you to BOSL and staff for this ceremony.

I wish you all the best.

Have a Happy Easter Weekend.

Sincerely,

RicoRacer Flux
