{Zaara} New Release : EFA-AIFW 09

EFA - Amsterdam International Fashion Week

In a cross platform event organised by Ewing fashion agency, panel of SL designers recreated SL versions of clothing for an RL designer featuring in the Amsterdam fashion week.

The challenge for the event was to create clothing within SL based on working photographs sent by the RL designer. The photographs I received were not what I expected, and I tried to make them work to the best of my ability - incorporating changes and 'zaaraness' wherever I could. I created a more fitted silhouette and added elements like flaps, buttons and tie-ups.

A long crinkled teeshirt with tie up details and a hint of red from a tank underneath... I shortened the length from the RL picture and worked the side into a tie to make it interesting.

Short babydoll dress with a knotted front...close to the original.

Long dress with button flap details on the back. The RL dress looked too similar to the earlier 'Ravyn' ... I enhanced the red tank to a fuller undershirt, added buttons and flaps to keep it casual and retained the length

ZC : melissa copy

Casual short dress with button/flap details with a red tank to go under. A longer skirt is also included which is closer to the RL version. I made many changes in this.. enhancing the red tank beneath, creating a fold on the front and adding the buttons

So beautiful, all of it works of wearable art.

That Melissa dress is a real stand out, though.

wow. yours are WAY WAY better than the originals. So beautiful. I dont mean to be rude, but they really should have presented those outfits better.
