GIA Style Card // Help From My Friends

John Donne’s Meditation XVII is an eloquent reminder that we are all members of a global community.

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.”

It has been so heartwarming to see the Second Life community come together for a charitable cause once more – this time in support of our brothers and sisters in Haiti who have very recently been impacted by disastrous earthquakes.

The 2009 Jewelry Fair – September 18 to 27

Jewelry Fair has now opened to showcase the creations of over 100 designers! This year, proceeds from select sales will benefit Oxfam, a confederation of 13 like-minded organizations working together and with partners and allies around the world to bring about lasting change in reducing poverty and injustice.

The fair is divided into the four seasons – summer, fall, winter and spring. The turnstyle booth can be found in the Spring section at JewelryFair 1 (36, 73, 29).

I’m looking forward to visiting the booths of some of my own favourite designers like Zaara, Whippet & Buck, UZURI, Muse, Kraftika, Gems & Kisses, and Elate! … not to mention the pursuit of finding new favs.

PR Couture Goes Virtual: Fashion PR in Second Life


In a swish of something completely different, PR Couture is going virtual! We will be sponsoring 24 hours of fashion in Second Life,  celebrating the one-year anniversary of GLANCE International Agency, Second Life’s premier Fashion PR Agency. In a world where anything is possible, GLANCE will be presenting International Fashion Day, bringing together Second Life’s most respected fashion designers across the globe for 24 runway shows in 24 hours!

As official sponsor of the event, PR Couture will be interviewed in the premiere issue of GLANCE’s new fashion magazine, sharing fashion PR tips that transcend the physical, and will get to play around in SL, enjoy the shows and meet several prominent SL fashion designers! The goal of the partnership is to bridge the gap between virtual and material fashion, and hopefully share some knowledge between the two worlds.

In case you are out of the loop, Second Life is a free 3D virtual world imagined and created by its Residents, some of which have become quite wealthy in RL (that’s real life) through the SL currency, the Linden™ dollar. Fashion is serious business in SL and it should be an interesting, eye-opening and of course, fashionable time.

International Fashion Day will take place Saturday, September 5th from 12 PM PDT to Saturday, September 6th at 12 PM PDT. If your interest is piqued, you can find more about Second Life and sign up for a free account at
