This is a peek into the two challenges I accepted with the Fashion Designer Challenge.  

The skin challenge was from Ina Centaur and it was to create a skin that could walk right out of the virtual world of Second Life (TM) into real life.  Well, I do not consider that I truly met what she meant for that challenge.  I typically make fantasy based skins and am relatively new to skin creation.  I have to say that I did learn quite a bit about creating the base skin.  I will be tweaking this one over time.  I loved the challenge because it forced me to work outside of my comfort zone and learn things that will only improve my skills overall.  My parter was challenged to make an outfit that was tempered, worn and do it yourself repaired many many times.  I must say her outfit is incredible. 

The clothing challenge was from Wiccan Soujourner and it was to create a formal suit that includes a jacket, blouse and pants.  I had to use a little creative license here (giggles) as my partner was challenged to design a skin based upon an astrological or mythological character.  She chose Neptune and she did an awesome job with him.  Yes!  The King of the sea is going out to a formal in style.  O.o  And I thought I saw everything!  😀

Can’t wait to see what others have done…..ohhhh please, I can not wait!!!Fashion Designer Challenge Peek A Boo

PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMEDIATE RELEASE

FASHION DESIGNERS CHALLENGE PRESS RELEASE – The  Road to Oz, May, 2nd –  Samsara Nishi, fashion designer, is proud to announce the first edition of FASHION DESIGNERS CHALLENGE – FDC for short.

For long time I’ve wishing to explore more deeply the collaboration aspect of SL, and I was also so curious about how it would be to organize such a thing… Finally I found a funny way to do it: usualy fashion designers, including me, work alone, all by themselves… well… what if they could influence each other to create? So I decided to invite other fashion designers to join me to be challenging each other to explore our creative minds practicing our design abilities on the fly!” says Samsara Nishi.

FDC is a special & unique fashion event involving 35 well known fashion designers connected under a strong collaboration mode.

Everyone who joined this team were brave enough to accept the challenge to join the event as fashion designer without knowing what are the style of outfit they would have to create… They are challenging each other to create maybe something different from their usual…

The brave fashion designers are (in alphabetic order):

Aleri Darkes, Alexandar Vargas, Amutey Decuir, Annah Whitfield, Anubis Hartunian, Candy Cerveau, Clio Cardiff, Danielle Harrop, Digit Darkes, Eolande Elvehjem, Felicity Overlord, Ina Centaur, Indyra Seigo, Ivey Deschanel, Jamie Holmer, Kesseret Steeplechase, Leah McCullough, Mew Denimore, Mouse Mimistrobell, Nardya Rousselot, Neferia Abel, Nyte Vargas, Pushbutton Skolnick, Samsara Nishi, SavannahAnn McMillan, Sevenstar Amat, Sheltered Heart, Shir Dryke, Sioxie Legend, Sofi Sullivan, SySy Chapman, Tatianna Faulkes, Tigerlily Koi, Tuli Asturias and Wiccan Sojourner.

Each one of the fashion designers have 3 main individual assignments during the Fashion Designers Challenge:

1. To define a challenge to send to another fashion designer
2. To create an outfit based on the challenge he/she  received from another fashion designer
3. To blog about the outfit someone else created

That means:

“Fashion-Designer-A” defines a challenge that “Fashion-Designer-B” will create and “Fashion-Designer-C” will blog about.

And there are also team challenges.

This is not a competition between fashion designers. This is a teamwork challenge. This is a collaboration effort.

As far as everything was picked by chance… we will have some unusual outfits as, for example, Ivey Deschanel from Sn@tch been challenged by Sevenstar Amat to design a classical suit for ladies.

Allthough I have not been teamed up with another designer (due to the fact we were having more clothing designers then for skins/jewelry and other categories), I’ve enjoyed every part of this challenge. It’s interesting and fun to not only define a challenge to another designer and see what they come up with, but also to be challenged and having to create something you least expect and which may not be your usual style. I would definately do this again :)” says SySy Chapman.

I have enjoyed working and meeting with other designers. Will I do it again? You bet!” says Wiccan Sojourner.

Absolutely for sure my main challenge was not to create an outfit… after I had this idea my personal bigger challenge was to put all together and make it happens! And I’ve to confess you, I’m so excited to see the results of this initiative!” said Samsara Nishi.

All operational aspects of the event were build under collaboration mode: Sioxie Legend made the official logo and poster based on her discussions with the visual identity team: Ina Centaur, Sevenstar Amat and Sioxie Legend; Candy Cerveau lended a sim to host the store and the club; Tatianna Faulkes did all the customization and building of the store  based on the discussions she had with Sofi Sullivan; Clio Cardiff was the official Italian translator helping other designers to fully understand all details about the event.

The decisions regarding who should be hired as services providers for the event, also were take together by all designers. “It is really interesting to notice some of the services providers, by their own decision, offered to join us under the collaboration mode, as sponsors.” said Samsara referring to Prad Prathivi who will be making a machinima about the event, and Tillie Ariantho who will be working as the official photographer, both as sponsors.

Today is the deadline!

The 35 brave designers who accepted the challenge are finally ready to pack their efforts in the final outfits/jewels/shoes/hair/skins!
Multiple categories, team work and a lot of fun!
The Fashion Designers Challenge was born from an idea of Samsara Nishi, who sent out invites to take part to this HIGHLY unusual event:)
