First of all I want to thank all the members that have responded to the announcement about a Fashion Show for the group. I want to take this space to explain our vision of the group and our mission. Then will explain how I will like this Fashion Show to be.
Our Mission is to be the best advertising group that be totally different from other advertising groups. An Unique group that gives satisfaction not only to designers but to members or any person that needs us to evolve in SL to achieve his/her dreams and goals.
Our vision is to be a very special group with participation of all the members to help each other in achieving our goals and dreams. Getting involved all together to make this a live group; having events, supporting each other and growing together through the path that SL puts in front of us.
In our group everybody gets rewards; members including designers gets gifts from time to time from other designers; Designers get the reward of reaching more people that are potential buyers that will result in business growing. Also they have the reward of having more exposure through our blog. In addition, we will support them in events like fashion shows; huntings or whatever they have or need. On top of all this; with the fashion show events another venue open for those who aspire to become a model and will pursue a career in that area. All this with the members participation and shopaholics having fun. I know will not be easy and will probably takes time but I promise we can do this together. So invite now your friends to the group and stay in it because it is worthy and please support our designers first of all. Remember this; not everything that is good is expensive but also not everything that is not expensive is good. So our designers first when you look for something. We have really good designers with very good and affordable prices.
ok now about the Fashion show. I want to train the models first. I want to be sure that all the models females of males know how i want the walk to be done. At what point to stop; to turn and for how long a pose will be held. I want all the models to know how to prepare folders to change fast from one outfit to another. I want this to be very similar to a real fashion show in terms of the way models move around the runway. I also want the designer to walk the runway at the end of his/her turn along with his/her models. Then we will have the next designer and so on. Once that is clear and handled we will discuss type of poses needed (tips about it); look recommendations (skin, hair, nails etc) and then i will contact the designers to set rules about how many outfits per designers; how many models per designers and they will pick the models, date and time for the event.
Every model that shows real interest and commitment will have a new role in the group as model. The Title will be FashTrend Top Model. The pay for you to participate will be determine by the designer that hires you. It could be money; maybe you can keep the outfit you model or both. who knows. I will not intervene in those arrangements so that is something that the designers will decide individually. The only thing i can Assure you as model is the experience you will get.
If by any chance not all the designers can participate in this first fashion show or not all the available models; then you will be ready for the next one. I know that if i have 10 designers interested will be very agonizing having a fashion show with lets say 8 presentation by designers that can last no more than 2 hours. In my opinion 2 hours is the maximum a fashion show should last. People get tired, bored and some prefer to go and do other things like hanging out with friends etc. So to have everybody's attention; 2 hours should be the maximum time for the fashion show. So we need to decide how many designers will do this first one counting the time for each pose in every turn that does not go over 120 minutes.
After we are done with it; we can have a get together in a place that we can pick up in advance and flood it with our massive presence lol. That would be very funny getting all together with the group tags to a club lets say and just taking over the place dancing and chatting out loud and getting attention lol. I dont know; you can suggest other ideas if you have any.
We need to know each other in person. Not that i will accept everybody's friendship or designer will do that, but will be nice to meet all of us and members have the chance to meet the designers they love in person and hang out with them a little. I mentioned about the friendship thing because can u imagine my friend list with almost 1000 people? No way hahahaha. So please we can hangout as group but dont (all of u) offer your friendship please. I am anyway available for whoever want to talk to me always; so keep friendship as a treasure for those that you are in contact with frequently; in a daily or weekly basis. Inventory and friend list need to be controlled guys; remember that. :)
I hope to be able to, today or tomorrow, call the first meeting with models. There is a person that offered her experience to help us out with this and also a DJ. So we will be fine and it will be lot of fun. I love you!! and hope you support us in this. Thanks.
