Welcome,

Our Menswear Fashion Week 2013 ICONS Derby, Stache, and Tie have begun their world tour. They are headed for Menswear Fashion Week 2013 to make an appearance at this illustrious event devoted to all the fashionable well dressed men of Second Life April 19th-27th! You can join in on their high jinx and hillarity as they send post cards from all the wonderful exotic locations they visit. All the while the Siren Productions team slaves away to produce all the fashion shows, shopping, and parties you have come to expect from Menswear Fashion Week.

China Town Icon Postcard

Derby, Stache, and Tie began their journey in San Francisco! They took in the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Warf, Alcatrez (Tie locked Derby in one of the cells and was going to leave him. Stache made an unhappy Tie let Derby out) to name just a few of the wonderful places they visited. Their favorite, however, was the quaint and bustling Chinatown, where they sent us a fabulous postcard from! They dined on Dim Sum Soup and Peking Duck. Afterwards they went shopping for some of their favorite clothing, MENSWEAR!

While they were out shopping they took in all the art, people, and culture. At one point Derby got spooked by one of the intricately carved Chinese Dragons and fleed in terror. Stache and Tie tried to chase after him to calm him down. Unfortunately it did not work and they quickly left SF for their next location.

Where will the terrific trio end up next? Will the cowboys and music scene of Texas attract them? Will the bright lights and Broadway of the Big Apple tickle their fancy? Does the night life and warms sands of Miami have what it takes? Stay tuned….

You can take part in Derby, Stache, and Tie’s wonderful adventure by locating one of our MWFW 2013 Kiosks in any of our participating designer’s stores and clicking on it. You will receive an attendee package. Simply open it…choose your favorite MWFW 2013 ICON and wear it along with the alpha layer to the fashion shows, shopping, and other events at Menswear Fashion Week 2013. Remember to remove all other system clothing, sculpts, huds, aos, and scripted items you wont need them when you are a fabulous MWFW 2013 ICON! Derby, Stache, and Tie would never be caught in anything else!

Viva Las Vegas and Second Life Menswear

Written by Merrick Genesis on . Posted in MWFW 2013 Blog

From fabulous shows performed by many talented entertainers, to the sound of a slot machine spitting out quarters in a crowded casino, Las Vegas is the epitome of extravagant entertainment. For decades the bright lights have drawn us to the city, allowing us to get lost in the fun, music, and fashion inspired by icons who found a home on a prominent Las Vegas stage. Names like Sinatra, Elvis, and Liberace all call to mind specific styles associated with The Entertainment Capitol of the World.

MWFW Liberace second life menswear

“I don’t give concerts, I put on a show.”

While his piano and candelabra remain symbols of the man, Liberace will always be remembered for his extravagant costumes, a trademark he adopted to take his musical talent into the realm of showmanship. Often changing coats several times during a performance and allowing audience members on stage to admire his fashions, he took his shows from concerts to interactive musical fashion shows that displayed the opulence of his lifestyle. With a flair for clothing that drew attention, he became more than just a pianist, he became a legend.

MWFW Follies second life menswear

Liberace’s flair for the extravagant is also evident in the Follies found on the Las Vegas strip. With shiny, revealing outfits highlighted by sequins and feathers, showboys and showgirls use fantastic costumes to accent acts that include dancing, music, comedy and skits. Each glint of light reflected from a glittery outfit item, draws the eye, adding pizzazz to the performance.

“In a world where mystery is all too easily taken away, it is our job to put it back.”

Combine costume elegance, magical mystery, and a touch of the wild, Siegfried and Roy brought decades of wonder to Las Vegas with their shows. Known for their love of beautiful tigers, the duo stunned audiences with magic shows involving the gorgeous creatures. Their combination of outfits ranging from simpler suits to wizard-like capes added to the mystical flair that made their shows a must-see on any Vegas vacation.

MWFW Rat Pack second life menswear

With smooth voices that drew in the high rollers and won over the hearts of the ladies, The Rat Pack sold out nearly every show they performed. With humor, charm, and style, they entertained audiences who packed in to see them perform. Dressed to the nines in fine suits, the group’s banter, energy, and talent not only filled the room, but also filled the town.

No discussion of Las Vegas would be complete without mention of Elvis Presley. The man who first performed in Las Vegas in 1956 still lives in the city, performing weddings and shows at various locations. His music made him a legend, but his styles certainly played a role in his fame. From his leather to his white suits, we know an Elvis when we see one.

Inspired by the icons found in Las Vegas, designers bring us fashions suited for a night of luxury and excitement. Adapting styles from the glorious past of the city to our modern times, our Second Life menswear fashion creators give us ways to express ourselves while we pay homage to our favorites from the show business industry. Freedoms found in SL give them the ability to adapt stage costumes to work in an every day fashion, bringing Liberace off the stage and into the ballroom or setting Siegfried free to attend a fashion show or dance at a busy club. In Second Life, our stage is everywhere and we have a costume to help us express ourselves in every way, thanks to designers who work to take inspiration from real life icons and make clothing that suits our Second Lives. To see how some of our incredible designers have used Las Vegas inspiration to create clothing that fits our virtual lifestyle, be sure to join us on Wednesday April 24th at 6pm SLT for Menswear Fashion Week’s Viva Las Vegas special show.
