10 Reasons to Come to Fashion for Life: Reasons 7 and 8

7. The beauty.

Reason 7

Look at this beautiful dress pixivor Allen is offering in her donation vendor at Fashion for Life. It’s absolutely gorgeous with its sequined textures in silver and great flower accents. Pixivor decided to donate all funds paid for this dress to the American Cancer Society. This beautiful creation is only one of pixivor’s offerings for this worthy cause.

The Fashion for Life sims are stunning and won’t be here forever. The fashions are beautiful as well. Many items are exclusive—they will no longer be available after this fair. The ephemeral nature of these items is like life itself—it doesn’t last forever. The American Cancer Society’s work allows people to enjoy their lives through cancer and after it. It’s a huge thing—having a decent quality of life when your body is fighting cancer. Life is ephemeral—it should be enjoyable.

Feel the joy of life at Fashion for Life, going on NOW through March 22.

8. Around the world in nine sims…. (and not eighty days).

Reason 8

Fashion for Life is literally an around-the-world enterprise. Designers from every continent except Antarctica contributed to the content featured at Fashion for Life. That’s why it’s always a thrill to see the many kinds of fashions that designers contribute, all going to the American Cancer Society, to help their friends around the world fight cancer.

These all deserve to be shown, first because of their beauty, but also because of their price. Vlinder is offering these four pieces as her donation items, all at 150L each. If you have ever hesitated to purchase a sari due to cost this is the time to grab them at such an economical price while helping ACS.

Vlinder travels around east Asia frequently, logging in from internet cafes with her laptop to upload textures and work on designs. She managed to get to Fashion for Life the day before we were due to open, seemingly from a red-eye flight ;)

Syngen Sohmers has also priced her items at an economical price. She is the brilliant designer behind the Irving Penn and Bourke White sims and the gracious person who stepped up to become co-lead and to design the parameters for our gorgeous sims. Per FFL rules, Syngen donated the regular amount to have a store at FFL AND she donated the required number of items. These were all made exclusively for FFL AFTER she built her sims. Whew!

I don’t think Syngen will mind my telling you all that she is Egyptian living in the US, and it was during the harrowing days in Egypt that Syngen managed to design both her sims with all their amazing textures and prims. The Bourke White sim is based on the Porto Marina in Alexandria, her home town, and a place of wonderful memories for her. It was as if in defiance that Syngen built, unable to reach her family initially and glued to the TV as well as the computer screen as she funneled her energies into these builds. She willed Alexandria’s survival and independence through the linking of prims. Her selflessness and strength during a very stressful personal time was amazing.

Syngen represents her Egyptian and Muslim heritage with pride in her clothing. Her Nefertiti was her homage to her homeland, offered generously as a donation for Fashion for Life.

Finally this gorgeous kimono from Sequanna Kidd . Despite the troubles in Japan, Sequanna managed to log on and set up her store, offering this absolutely breathtaking kimono as one of her donation items. In fact, every single one of our Japanese designers was able to set up their stores, despite the disasters in their homeland, focused as they were on this charity and the opportunity to show Japanese strength in the face of adversity.

Reason 8

The work of all these creators reminds us that cancer knows no boundaries, no nationalities, no races. It afflicts people around the world. The American Cancer Society does not just serve North America; it serves people around the world through outreach, education, assistance and support.

Honor these international designers by visiting Fashion for Life, going on NOW through March 22.

One thought on “10 Reasons to Come to Fashion for Life: Reasons 7 and 8

  1. Surely there can be no greater reason for those who have not yet been to Fashion for Life than the RL events that have occurred in the past couple of weeks.

    Cures for, and far better prevention of is not a goal it is a reality. It is happening right now.

    Women world wide with access to the vaccine are not able to guarantee they can live their life free of cervical cancer, how wonderful is that? and what cancer will be next to be totally prevented? Answer none without financial support, so while you can spend L$5,000 (approx US$20) of something for yourself and you may also save your life or the life of your child. It makes the L$5K seem cheap if you lok over at your kids and think I can buy stuff and help save their life.

    That said no one should need a reason to recognize the need to find a cure for cancer and to help fund it, however global events of eh past couple of weeks reinforce the need.

    Japan – radiation leaks, what if the people who have lost everything and are now facing some radiation leaks could know they had been vaccinated against cancer? I know that would make their life easier.

    Worldwide there is always a danger of a radiation leak from a power plant. I am neither pro not anti nuclear power, however an accident is as possible as it is in commercial aviation, think about it, if you are concerned then go spend at Fashion for Life.

    Lets say you are in Sydney, London, New York, Paris, Rome you fall ill with pneumonia, as I did in RL recently, you expect, indeed we almost consider it our right that our doctor will give us penicillin or one of the later developed antibiotics to cure us so we do not succumb and die. Yes people died of pneumonia. However if it was 1935 there was no penicillin or antibiotics.

    Cancer is the same, there is a cure, we simply have to find it. Medical research is costly and if you are a massive corporate investing in “better” cell phones is going to pay more $ dividends that medical research.

    So it is up to us each and every one of us. I know globally financial times are really, really tough and may get tougher so that L$5,000 if you have to make it L$2,500 ($US 5 ) and skip the fast food or miss 2 cups of bought coffee. That is all it takes to give US$5, and what if a cure for cancer was 2 cups of coffee away and you drank them rather than buy something at Fashion for Life?

    Worse still what if you were told, “We are really sorry you have XYZ cancer, unfortunately there is no cure and it is terminal. We are so close to a cure but we simply can’t get the funding to continue research”.

    Think about it and if you have a reason not to buy at Fashion for Life email me at rserpente@gmail.com

    I am in no way associated with Fashion for Life, or this blog, other than as a buyer at Fashion for Life and a reader of the blog.
