Azoury – Modavia collection

Thank you for visiting this blog post.  I do hope you are having a brilliant weekend. 

Last week we saw amazing shows hosted by Modavia with the latest hottest releases by very talented, top Second Life designers.  I don’t know about you but I definitely held my breath when some of the new designs appeared.   Anyway today I would like to present some of the designs that appeared on the runway.  These are the designs of Azoury. 

First is Sulla.

Sulla consists of a couture sweater, jeans, and matching shoes.  This is a comforting outfit fitting for the impending Autumn season.  I’ve teamed Sulla with hair from Truth, nif nif gloves from Leezu and a cowboy hat.  The pose is from agape. 

 

Next is Suedine.

In keeping with this seasons hot catwalk look, Suedine consists of a cute little short sleeve jacket, black dotted shirt with a bow to match the jacket, tartan long shorts and pumps with tartan socks.  The whole emsemble works fabulously together.  I’ve accessorized the outfit with sunglasses by Dela, gloves by Leezu (Nif Nif), and Suki hair in Saffron by Bliss Couture.

 

Next in line is Sisbine. 

Another autumnal tartan outfit with a matching beret.  The boots that you see here are also included with the outfit.  Very chic indeed.  I’ve added gloves by Leezu and Noga earrings by Finesmith Designs. 

 

Revival is the next outfit on the list.

Revival is indeed a rejuvinating outfit.  The racing green shirt, brown jacket and capri jeans are brought alive by the vibrant orange boots, which is a reminder to keep embracing that September sun.  I’ve accessorized with ISHA hair, from Lelutka, bright orange Nif Nif gloves from  Leezu, Lovely necklace anc bracelet, coloured bracelet (gift), and Noga earrings and ring all from Finesmith Designs. 

 

Last but not least is Promesse

Promesse is a stylish military styled coat, with patterned black leggings and yellow boots.  I’ve accessorized with gloves from The Secret Store and Policeman’s cap from Cheryl Attire by Diram.  I really admire the unique designs of Mayhem Seetan  She uses lots of colour blocking in her work yet everything makes perfect sense.  Another job well done Mayhem and congratulations on your success at Modavia :D

All of these outfits are still available to buy on the Modavia sim, so hurry to get yours. 

To all the other designers named in this post…

thank you for making it happen :D

MESHmerised

We all knew it was coming, there was much preparation for it and finally the arrival of mesh came earlier this week.  I have been fascinated by it and wanted to see how it would work with my current avatar. 

Love it or hate it we are going to have to get used to it if we want to continue to work, play and enjoy Second Life as the introduction of mesh represents the way forward.  This will impact on (among other things) SL fashion and will change the way we wear and style our clothing.  I am concentrating on this aspect as this is what I spend most of my Second Life engaged in. 

The dress that I am wearing in the photo is one made with the mesh technology newly introduced to Second Life.  It is a one piece garment including the frill detail which you see on the front.   So far the garments that I have tried, come with an alpha layer which you first put on before wearing the garment.  The garment itself is mesh.  You put it on and voila!   I have to be careful here as technically mesh already existed in Second Life, since our avatars are mesh, as are sculpts and prims.  The newly introduced mesh allows us to wear a dress such as this one without necessarily having to wear a textured layer top, pants and additional parts to complete the garment. 

For those of us who are models, my first impression was favourable as I loved the seemless finish of skirts, dresses and pants.  I did become a little concerned however, about how we would be able to mix and match items in the way we have become accustomed since the mesh outfits are non mod.  I cannot really comment at this stage as I need to investigate a little more. 

The dress I have on in the image is attached to my spine and adjusts to fit your shape in most cases.  I did have to fiddle a bit with my shape to make it work right and I did notice that it moved through my body a bit as I walked.

Currently, you need to have a mesh enabled viewer such as viewer 3 or Kirstens to be able to wear or see mesh clothing correctly.  The other criteria for seeing mesh correctly is that you need to be on a mesh enabled sim.

Some stores such as Slink are providing free samples of mesh clothing to try.  The dress which I am wearing, was a group gift from Hucci.
