Please join us at 7 am PDT on Saturday, May 30, in Fashion Research Institute’s Shengri La estate in Second Life to celebrate the graduation of our first cohort of emerging avatar apparel designers. Designers Jare Capalini (AU V), Misteria Loon (Pas de Deux), Xand Nagy (Kicks & Twirls), and Wollemia Sands (Bull & Bear) will each show two looks in this specially designed fashion installation in honor of their graduation from the Shengri La Vintage MArketplace program for emerging avatar apparel designers. The emerging avatar apparel designer program was developed specifically to help avatar apparel designers bring their label to the next level, however they define the next level to be.
These designers have all grown their brands substantially over the last six months, under the mentorship of FRI founder and CEO Shenlei Winkler. Changes have ranged from creating new logos and rebranding the designers’ labels to presenting fashion shows and installations, and everything in between. Please join us in applauding these designers with all their hard work at this special show celebrating their graduation.
