I think one of the things I enjoy about RiRi Bazar of H.M.A.E.M. (that would be “Hate Me and Eat Me”) is she never looks at life in black and white. She imagines with her mind throttled wide open and always comes up with something previously unseen. She isn’t afraid of life and often I think she, in some way, is making life, mine at least, that much happier a place because all she makes is filled with humor and a bit of magical whimsy. The other thing I enjoy, is as a person whose favorite thing to do is create my own style, her pieces are often perfect for a focal point to create around. That is my favorite way to style. To find one piece (and in creative styling, its seldom the clothes I style around), I find really interesting, put it on while naked, and then just build around the item. Sometimes, ok oft, I run amok and have to start over from the beginning, but seldom, and never with H.M.A.E.M., have I had to abandon the original item.
Today I am wearing H.M.A.E.M.’s design created for the first round of The Couturier’s Dock, the “Freedom” hat. The purpose of the event is to inspire us to mix and match and create among designer’s what is uniquely our own. I personally love using birdcages in my styling, and so must others, remember all the “birdcage” skirts making the rounds a few months ago? They resembled something the real life designer Valentino would make. To me, these cages symbolize us, as models, pretty little peacocks, caged by fashion. But aesthetically, as an element of fashion, and especially as a focal piece, I just adore the whimsical nature of them. For this simple “quick style” I added the “Birdcage” earrings and ring created by Yula Finesmith of FINESMITH jewelry, who happens to be another of the designer’s contributing to this event. This is not the item she will have at the opening, she has kept her design under wraps for Tuesday’s unveiling, but I’ve yet to be disappointed in anything she has made. The style, simple, to the point, and hopefully has brought a little bit of a smile to your day.
Welcome to Couturier’s Dock! We are Salimar Art SIM and in just a few more sunrises we will be hosting a group of designers with a Passion for creating fashion. We purposely kept our designer’s list limited to some of the designers we feel have niched their own genre of fashion so the items available to you will be unique, limited to lots of 35 units, will be affordable at a price range of 50 to 500 Lindens (50% off the main store price) and we hope will be a treasured addition to your Second Life inventory. On May 15th, and recycling every 15 days, we are opening our SIM featuring creatively minded designers, to you, our creatively minded consumer’s. We are very happy to have all of these dedicated SL designers committing items to this event and the only thing missing is YOU. Will you please join us?
