LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS
You may recall that just over a week ago I brought you Azul’s MVW Japan Gown as worn by Shinobu Istmal. This post I am so very pleased to be showing you the gown worn by MVW USA, Imani Enzo, yet another stunning Azul creation. As a large proportion of the SL fashion world (and indeed much of the SL population itself) is from this proud nation, I think this item has a certain special significance to many.
This satin figure hugging gown is flows into a lovely shirred skirt and is trimmed with lovely dual-toned feathers. As always, Azul has released this gorgeous gown in eight lovely and dream-like colours, including Amethyst as seen here.
The exquisite satin detail is especially noticeable around the ruched bustline and shaded lower torso. The minty tones of the Alexandrite version of the Imani Enzo Gown are soothing and sweet.
The dual-tone feathers make an especially bold statement in the Champagne version of this Azul creation. The feathers cover only the left side of the bust, before adorning both shoulders. This assymetric look is echoed further down, as the feathers wrap diagonally around the hips, accentuating and highlighting curves.» View author and full post…
Miss Virtual World may be all but over for another year, but now we ordinary folk can get our hands on some of the absolutely sensational designs in which the finalists glided across the stage. MVW Japan, Shinobu Istmal was lucky enough to have Azul design this beautiful formal gown as part of her Top 12 wardrobe.
The Shinobu Gown comprises a fitted satin bodice with a bejewelled shrug bolero and detailed layered skirt. Long shards of sheer embellished fabric float from the fitted sleeves as well as the skirt overlay. In Amethyst we can see the deep berry colour with fuschia accents.
The satin of this Shinobu Gown is highly textured; just look at the way the light bounces off the bodice! An assymetric belt adds curves and creates a central focal point to balance the bolero at the top and flowing skirt further down. This Champagne version is a lovely alternative to traditional white and is a great compliment to most skin tones.
The use of complimentary yet contrasting colour in the skirt and sleeve layers creates a colour-popping effect reminiscent of traditional Japanese fabrics and kimonos. It’s hard to go wrong with a red gown and Azul does it so so right.» View author and full post…
