Conga in the Congo MVW 2017

Congo fullCongo Close

Well I have survived my first runway challenge in MVW 2017!  The theme we were given was “Conga in the Congo”, and this was the description:

“You are bored of the glitz and glamour and wanted some adventure in your life. After a visit to the Conga, you had an idea to throw the party of a lifetime. Style an exotic formal look for a conga in the Congo. Your aim is to create a high fashion and impressive outfit, with elegance and wow factor.”

I didn’t know what to expect when I finally got to see the other contestant’s styling efforts, but when they all arrived backstage (and before I turned my settings down so far that they were all jellydolls) I was absolutely floored by many of the stunning and creative looks I saw.  Frankly I felt way underdressed!  This is my first MVW competition, and now that I see what I’m up against, I definitely need to up my game for the rest of this competition!

To give you an idea of my styling inspiration, here’s the background story I included in my submission NC, which was also read aloud during my walk.

“After a front row seat at the Congo Fall/ Winter Fashion Week, Fly returns home to throw the hottest soiree of the season. Inspired by the bold graphics and color she saw on the runway, she recreates fresh, fierce African style combining unexpected elements for a standout look. Fly was largely influenced by the stylish Brazzaville “Dandies” whose unique street style combines class with pure imagination. They never shy from bright color combinations, so Fly pushed herself to combine hot pink with red as an unexpected element in her styling. Fly can’t wait to share a slideshow of all her Congo moments with all of her fashionista friends at this highly anticipated event. Finishing off her look with a traditional headwrap and unforgettable statement jewelry, she prepares to “conga” the night away to celebrate this adventure and many more to come!”

Here’s a couple photos of those fabulous Brazzaville Street Dandies I referenced…how fun and awesome are these guys?!

Well I’m not sure I added enough “Conga” in my “Congo”, lol, but this is a wonderful learning experience and I know a bit better what to expect with the next challenge.  I’m really enjoying how much this competition is forcing me to step out of my comfort zone.  And it’s only the beginning!!

LD Blac Collection – The Incline Gown

Image

Lovelies, as promised I wanted to get started right away showing you the amazing creations in the new Loovus Dzevavor “Blac Collection”.  This is the magnificent dress I was fortunate enough to wear for the Model Search finals, and it just happens to be my very favorite piece in the entire collection.  I’m sure you can see why!

There is no way a photo can do this texture justice.  You will really have to see it in person to get the full “disco-ball” effect.  The tiny metallic panels on the gown are constantly shimmering and giving off spectacular colorful lights…I’ve truly seen nothing in SL with such a texture.  It really comes alive.  Oh, and don’t let me forget to mention that this gown comes in the new Fitted Mesh option.  This new technology fits you like a glove and moves with your body perfectly.  I kept my styling minimal because absolutely nothing can compete with this creation, and it needs no further enhancing.  Enjoy.

Happy New Year lovelies!  This is my first blog post of 2014, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see what sort of adventures the New Year holds.  This is the first of many blogs for one of my new favorite stores “Sundaara Designs”.  I have teamed up with Sundaara this year and am really looking forward to showcasing her trendsetting designs.  Today I can be seen wearing the “Paula” coat in Eggplant.  Is it not the most feminine, form fitting, sweetest Winter Coat on the grid?  The “Paula” Coat is a quality made, rigged mesh product which comes in 8 colors and patterns to suit any style and taste.  Your choices are seen here:

Hello lovelies!  Today I am modeling a new Chop Zuey creation which was created for Miss Venezuela in this years Miss Virtual World competition.  It seems appropriate that Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey, an avid animal lover and protector, would design something after the newest species of moth, the adorable Poodle Moth!  Miss Venezuela, the lovely Lua Vendetta, left the audience breathless in this lovely creation, which she wore as her National Costume.  To find out more about this cuddly moth (if ever there was an oxymoron) read here!
