“It’s Time” For The Cause


Today marks a HUGE day in Second Life. It is the kick off of Fashion For Life shopping event. But what is Fashion For Life?

According to the official website for Fashion For Life, this event is the fashion arm of the Relay for Life movement inside of Second Life which supports the American Cancer Society. Previously the event was simply known as the Relay For Life Clothing Fair. However the event took time to re-brand last year and came up with a new name but did not lose its focus! I URGE you to visit the official website to learn more about this tremendous cause/ effort and all the SL (and RL) residents that work tirelessly to bring this to the SL community.  Visit them today at: http://www.fashionforlifesl.org.

I am excited, as always, about supporting this event. I “unofficially” shared the event with you last year so I am thrilled to be “official” this time around. This year’s theme is “It’s Time”. From the official press release:

“Fashion for Life spans an incredible TEN lag free sims with over 200 stores selling the latest fashions, accessories, hair and unique designer items made especially for this event. There will also be gacha areas, a hunt, a raffle and a SALE- all with the end goal of raising funds for the American Cancer Society via SL. The sims will be laid out in a cross formation and will represent the theme “Its Time…” with builds representing stages in time: past, present, future and timeless. All building and landscaping have been created by some of SL’s top designers and builders to produce a beautiful environment for your charity shopping sprees!”

Over the next few days (maybe week or so), I will blog about Fashion For Life and will show you some of the outstanding creations you can find there. As a member of the Press/Blogger Corp for this event, it is my honor to share these fashions with you. Unless noted, please know the designs were provided directly by the designer. Such posts will be designated as “Fashion For Life” or “FFL 2012”.

If all else fails, you can always head directly to http://www.fashionforlifesl.org and get information on the following:

*Fashion For Life Hunt listings
*Fashion for Life Gatcha listings
*Fashion For Life Raffle information
*Fashion For Life sim maps
*Plus updates on designer offerings, special events, and more!

Last, but definitely important, please know that all the funds in DONATION VENDORS go directly to the American Cancer Society. All other funds from purchases go to the designers themselves. I want to be sure that everyone is clear on that. We shop with a purpose and donate for the cause. So load up those lindens….. it’s time for Fashion For Life!
