Talk about SL™ being influenced by real life, Friday, February 13, 2009 kicks off RUNWAY’s fashion week (which will actually span 8 days)! From the official press release; ” This week of fashion shows will feature a broad range of fashion designers including couture, formal, casual, swimwear and more. Shows will begin on February 13 and run through February 20. A total of 35 designers will be represented in Fashion Week 2009 in 4 to 5 shows daily, beginning at 1 pm PST at RUNWAYs main sim, Bryant Park, in Second Life. In addition to the fashion shows, many of the participating designers will have on-site boutiques, offering designs seen in their shows and there will be gifts offered to attendees by many of the designers.”
The list of events is outstanding, and I encourage you to take a look at the show schedule over on RUNWAY Magazine’s website. There are a number of shows I personally will be trying to make it to, I think this event will be especially great for those who’ve never really attended a fashion event before.
The events are being held at Bryant Park, which I hear has a great set-up. I can’t wait to see it!
