Where but Second Life can just about anyone afford or fit or even make (if given a little time to learn) the most fashionable clothes ever imagined? September is a time when students head back to school, weather is changing and everyone seems to have the urge for new and seasonal clothes to show off. In SL September must be fashion month mimicking RL new release shows, based on all the big fashion events and weeks ahead. Some of the events I have heard about include the follow:

DESIGNERS UNITED 4
Designers United 4 from September 4 through September 15.
Designers United is a 12 day long fashion event featuring exclusively created products from a group of talented designers, based on a theme. Each designer has created items specifically for this project, and they will only be available for sale for a limited period of time.
The theme chosen is "Narcissus", and the designers have interpreted this theme to make items based on the colors, textures or feelings evoked by this flower or myth.
This bi-monthly event is being hosted by the Floyd sim, and will be held from September 4th to September 15th. (info. thanks to Lu Waffle vis Flickr) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
There is also the new Styling Forward televised show that sounds very interesting, with press release information as follows:
"STYLING FORWARD - a new reality TV show!
A new era in fashion begins ...
Some people say that being a virtual model is easy: You buy a shape and some stylish hair; then you get a nice skin, a pretty dress and a proper AO and off you go down the runway.
Maybe true! So what differentiates the hundreds of thousands of ladies that are dancing in a disco at any given time from the absolute top models?
It's their ability to style!
The ability to style and make themselves fabulous and unique every time, is the difference between anyone and a fashion connoisseur. They need to know when to leave an outfit alone (less is more), but also when to mix and match and accesorize in a fabulous way to create that look that will have everybody else inspecting them!
Frolic Mills & Mimmi Boa in association with METAVERSE TV are proud to announce the first televised master styling competition. This show is available for both ladies and gentlemen.
ONLY 10 MODELS WILL BE CHOSEN ...
SATURDAY AUGUST 28TH 2010 AT 10 AM SLT & 2 PM SLT
More auditions may open if needed.
Taping of the show starts on Sunday September 26th and goes for 10 weeks every sunday at 1:00 PM SLT. If you cannot commit to this schedule, please don't audition.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even MVW contestants, ex misses and misters and all SL models.
NOTE 1: If you are too sensitive to public criticism, this may not be the right show for you.
NOTE 2: If you would like to sponsor this show, please contact Frolic Mills.
Good luck and may boring and safe fashion be forever cured!
Oh, did I forget there is a 100,000 L$ prize?
and the cover of BOSL Magazine? span>>and a modeling contract with Boulevard Agency?
and that's just the beginning... Many more gifts to be announced later!
Have fun and show me an amazing outfit tomorrow during auditions. That's all I am going to say."
