As an important reminder  I should say Fashion Designers Challenge Special temporary stores with all items created during this event are now closed! So if you still wanna buy some of the FDC items, you should visit each one of the designer’s store. Check here the SLURLs to FDC designer’s stores.

If you are not sure what are the FDC items you can wear to this photo contest, you can take a free copy of the FDC Photo Book on XStreet SL with photos of ALL FDC items (photos by Tillie Ariantho). You also can check some of FDC items on the Moda Fashion Spotlight TV Show, and also on the Fashion Show Review by Timeless Agency. Or, check what the designers blogged about each other.

And this is the perfect moment to, on behalf of all 35 FDC designers,  once again say thank you to all professionals who worked hard to make this event happen!

    Samsara Nishi

    Pushbutton Skolnick from the label SPRAWL is one of the 35 brave designers attending the Fashion Designers Challenge. She was challenged by Danielle Harrop who wanted her to create a:

    “sheath dress and cropped or bolero jacket with wrist-lenght gloves, seamed hose…a 1940’s daywear look. If you feel adverturous, a pill box hat would make the outfit perfect… “

    So she created a classy 1940’s daywear outfit available in 4 different colours:

    water and coffee:

    FDC The Lark (water & coffee)

    chestnut and coal:

    FDC The Lark (chestnut & coal)

    crimson and navy:

    FDC The Lark (crimson & navy)

    night and fog:

    FDC The Lark (night & fog)

    Each one includes 17 items:

    1 belt, 3 tops ( jacket, shirt, undershirt layer), 1 bolero, bolero sleeves, 2 button up shirts ( shirt, undershirt layer), 1 shirt collar, shirt sleeves, 2 glitchpants ( pants, underpants layer), 1 skirt, gloves and stockings. The button-up shirts and the seamed stockings are the same for each color. The outfit includes a system skirt which was unavoidable, so to keep it from the puffy “big butt”- look you can turn the value of your butt size down to 0 (given that you have a shape that is set to modify).

    Due to the great number of pieces and the variety of colours, the outfit offers you a range of different wearing options and furthermore it’s suited for multiple occasions like business, festivities or just for everyday life depending on the way of wearing it. The night and fog one is suitable for everything, it looks so elegant and classy and I’m also a huge black and white fan so this one is my personal favourite.

    All FDC outfits are available at this 2 stores:

    Here is what Candy Cerveau did for the awsome FDC:

    this beautifull jewlery set was created by Candy Cerveau, challanged by herself….yes this can happen too🙂 She picked herself randomly. The task was to create something that is inspired by the ice hotel in Sweden. So she started making this  snow crystal inspired necklace and bracet in icy colors, that could be appropriate for an ice fairy or ice princess. I think, if there was a jewlery shop in the ice hotel, they would sell sets like this.

    Candy Cerveau dropped into the world of Second Life in January of 2006 after reading about a working version of The Metaverse from Neal Stephenson’s novel Snow Crash. In RL she is a glass artist and creates beads for jewelry and collection. She has, as she admits,  a natural inclination for working small – and a desire to produce well crafted and well textured work.  She uses mostly custom made and exclusive textures and has embraced the new sculpted prims with joy, as to her they impart a realism and organic feel that is hard to match.

    Her shop in SL is”Eye Candy”, she opened it in  in late 2006. She expanded her area several times and finally made the leap to her own sim in August of this year. Her main store is in Emerald City on the new sim Magic of Oz, a theme build based on the Oz books of L Frank Baum.
