The Couturier's Dock

Salimar Luxury District

invito

Salimar Art SIM, is a site dedicated to digital art, literature and poetry. Our goal is sharing the immersive artistic experience with people not only from Second Life but also from the World Wide Web. Our effort is focused on creating a virtual place to meet and exchange for all those creative people who use the metaverse as a medium. We are honored to host in the “SaliMar Room’s” a stable group of international artists of outstanding value. SaliMar Art Sim** is created, owned and built by Mila Tatham (aka Salima Venditti) & rodroguez Imako (aka Andrea Roberto Dosi).

Salimar is also known for its work with the fashion industry and has carried the very successful event, “The Couturier’s Dock.” So with the new year we are happy to announce the creation of a new concept, The Salimar Luxury District. This Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 12PM SLT, you will find the grand opening of a new experience in shopping and the celebration of the opening of the Paradise Circus Gallery of Buffy Holfe, one of SL’s most renowned digital artists. Link: portfolio: We’ve spent the month polishing the fixtures and setting up inventory. Gathering together designer’s with an undeniable quality of merchandise, artists with an amazing gift for virtual art and a troupe of models with a flair for style. The only thing missing? You. Come watch the enthralling fusion of art, music and fashion.

For the event, we challenged our Second Life top tier models, Anna Sapphire, Blackliquid Tokyoska, Calima Dufaux, Devine Hunt, Draakje Dailey, Natzuka Miliandrovic, Vikeejeah Xevion, and hostess Caoimhe Lionheart to style. We sent them exploring the Salimar Luxury District, the mission, each model must create a mix and match style using parts of outfits from some of Second Life’s most prestigious designers, AD Creations, Blackliquid, Baoba, BeloD, Finesmith, FP Poses, Gizza, HMAEM, Le Penderie de Nicole, Les Petite Details, Loovus Dzevavor, LovelyMi, SoliDea FoliEs, and Violator. Come watch these models runway show their unique styles while enjoying the heart thumping tunes of SL’s sensational DJ, Riri Bazar.

The best part? We are having a lottery and one lucky attendee in the audience will win all of the outfits the models are wearing! How’s that for a take from? Runway models, Art, Music, creative designers and a grand prize. What more could you ask for? Well, looky there, I am so excited to see you all, I even included the taxi: Taxi:

A hopefully helpful reminder whilst you are out Christmas shopping. The Couturier’s Dock still has a few items in stock, ready for purchase! This incredible jacket from *SoliDea FoliEs*, the “Marilyn” pant from Orage Creations and this scrumptious “Campbell” dress from Chantkare (can’t you just see it with some campy leggings and cute boots?) are still in small supply, so hurry up they won’t last long. The pose with the Chantkare dress is also available and is called “Wings” from Lib Descent. It is actually a couples pose, but he thoughtfully includes them without poseballs so you can use them as singles. I can’t wait for Spring, wouldn’t this be the perfect pose for a “bird in the hand?”

The Couturier's Dock *SoliDea FoliEs* has included the “Winter Flower” shoos that perfect match the hat and scarf released at Fashion Limited

This round of The Couturier’s Dock will be closing Sunday November 18th 2012 around 12PM SLT so don’t miss out! Many of the items have expired by selling their 35 units, but there is still some great items to be found! I think the “Winter Flower” shoos add an incredible dimension to the “Winter Flower hat and scarf”, don’t you? I simply added the still divine *SoliDea FoliEs* “Noir II” outfit to give it a hothouse haute couture feel. So take a minute and pop on over! Taxi:

The Couturier's Dock What a playfully adorable romper called “Scarlett” that Pichi has included this round!

For the holiday season it’s always nice to have items available for all types of different festivities. I wore the “Scarlett” romper with a T-shirt and simple boots, but it would look equally chic with a pair of leggings, short jacket or sweater, making it completely inline with a typical current fashion trend of wearing shorts with leggings. Imagine this adorable outfit with a nice winter cap, some woolly leggings and a trim little pair of ice skates. You’d add the oo-la-la to any upbeat activity.

The Couturier's Dock Even little dragons (Draakje Dailey) look simply adorable in White Widows “Anna” skirt and the exceptional mesh nails (in 4 colors!) “Rex” from Mad’

I absolutely fell in love with both the White Widow skirt and the Mad’ nails. Both designers items are high quality and a perfect addition to any model or fashionista’s wardrobe as they both play well with others on the toughest of styling assignments. All items are still unique items from the designer and will always be sold at half the price of similar items instore, so come on over and check out these and the other limited inventory found at the Couturier’s Dock. I know you will be glad you did! xo

Aliza.Karu.Skares.Me

She knows it too. I tell her so all the time. I’ll be the first to tell you, for a Cao I am really more a chicken. I hate horror flicks, I hate darkness, I hate ghosts and monsters. Heck, I even leave town to avoid Halloween every year. I think it must be Halloween year round in Aliza’s mind because she doesn’t just bring out the ghoulies and ghosties in October, her store, Angel Demons Creations Dollhouse (AD Creations Dollhouse), carries the scaries year round. These two pieces are currently being offered at The Couturier’s Dock. The hands are from LibDescent Poses and truly they are amazing and have so many uses. Flash Alert! Perfect for your more fierce mix and match contests. Nothing more fierce than a bunch of hands grabbing you and pulling you back. So don’t miss out, check them out today! And have a happy Halloween because I am out of here. Well, in a few more weeks anyway.

Let.Them Eat.Cake.

Maneira is having an event, a “Tribute to Vivienne Westwood” this week that I think is such a marvelous idea, I am blogging it even though I am not in the Maneira Agency. But I do love the agency and its models, as well as the designer’s involved, so it’s not a great chore. ;P I also adore Vivienne Westwood, she is a designer most noted for bringing modern punk and “new wave” fashions to the mainstream. We all have seen “punk style” with it’s BDSM flavors, bondage gear, safety pins and razors, outrageous hair and makeup, but Vivienne also included deeper elements in her designs with the use of historical 17th and 18th century cutting techniques which give the clothes an even more shocking flare.

So with this, Maneira challenged its designer’s to create a one of a king “tribute to Vivienne Westwood.” And with their great minds, they all seem to have come through swimmingly. A few days ago I posted *SoliDea FoliEs* “Vivienne” gown, Flickr:, a simply stunning work of art with its tiers of skirting and bows. Today I want to show you two more offerings in this event, and sadly, they are only available until Sunday, so if you are going to purchase, time is running out.

Let.Them.Eat.Cake.

The first is Aliza Karu’s “Tribute to Westwood” A truly remarkable work with its outlandish punk themed swank, chains, masks, and there is even a clock on the back. The entire affect is the epitome of the punk movement I feel, a sort of shock and awe, guaranteed to have your mother swooning with a “what did I do to deserve this” comment. But then, wasn’t that what the punk movement was about? Ms Westwood herself once commented, “I was messianic about punk, seeing if one could put a spoke in the system in some way.” The Punk movement is about a shock of the senses, a nose up to authority. But the most amazing part of this outfit is Aliza Karu does it in such a notedly feminine way! It is true punk softened with flowers and lace. Gorgeous!

Let.Them.Eat.Cake.

The next outfit from *LpD* is “Marie Antoinette.” I know, if you didn’t know Vivienne Westwood, you would think one designer totally got it wrong. But both were spot on. Westwood is a designer of many fathoms, and Nevery Lorakeet’s selection is fitting of a gown created for either the “Queens Jubilee Collection” or from her wedding selections. Because really, who wants to show up on their wedding day with safety pins in their ears, I mean, on our wedding day aren’t we all princesses at heart? I actually seem to recall a similar dress to Neve’s in the wedding collection and thought at the time how stunning it is. Nevery’s is no less so. Truly a feminine, graceful piece that makes a statement. Just for the fifteen minutes it took to snap a picture, and this is truly an unedited snapshot, I received two comments from gentlemen on how lovely I looked. Amazing. Me. A Cao. I can’t remember the last time a man has even noticed me. As an aside, the “Marie Antoinette: style Hairs are from Fauve Beaumont’s Osmose, I saw recently the store has reopened, so runnnnn! And give her a huge hug from me and pick up the really cool summer style she just released.

And as usual I digress. If you want to see some truly inspirational pieces, check out the offerings at Maneira this weekend. I just know they will have something for everyone. Have a beautyful weekend! Here you are, you know I will even give you a ride: Taxi:
