MW STYLING CHALLENGE – “SEEING RED” WHO WORE IT BEST FEBRUARY 2017

Posted on Updated on

Congratulations to Bai Nightfire, Winner of the “Seeing Red” Who Wore It Best February  2017 Styling Challenge! Bai impressed the judges with her styling skills by layering a flirty little skirt over red chino pants, one of the items available for use in the challenge, and adding some very daring designs on top. She looked astonishingly sexy and ready for her Valentine’s Day date.  Honorable Mentions include Ava Jhamin and Amy Morgan, who did a great job styling.  The set was done by Suki Rexen and as usual  she did a fabulous job!   The challenge took place on Feb 15th and all the contestants did an impressive job styling a look with one of the items sent to them.

All entries must be in by February 14th.

• • • • •

Model’s Workshop invites you to join in a “Who wore it best challenge” where each person will be given the same red item to build an outfit around. This challenge is open as always to women and men. You will style the item given to represent your idea of that perfect Valentine’s Day date!   So whether that is going out to dinner or engaging in a romantic sunset hike it is your choice, just make sure your outfit represents your dream Valentine’s Day date and be sure the item given to you is used as it was given.  Gain valuable feedback and prizes!  As always the sky is the limit!

(RSVP and Style Card to Arianna Jasmine by February 14th she will present you with the item to style)

These Model’s Workshop challenges offer a unique opportunity to show your styling abilities to a group of your peers and get direct feedback. Remember to use appropriate poses and walks to present and sell your styling but don’t forget the basics! Check prims carefully and try to mix and match when possible.

There will be a panel of judges who will give contest style ranking as well as audience participants with vast modeling experience giving positive critiques. Newer models gain insight into the contest procedure as well as the experience of the judging and critique process. Veteran models get a forum in which to continue to refine their styling skills. The winner will have their photo in ModeLS Magazine and Diversity Magazines. They will also have an interview with photos published in E N V Y Magazine! Their photo will be featured on the Model’s Workshop Blog as well as inworld at the Model’s Workshop HQ.

You need not spend a fortune on this challenge. Use your inventory in unique, outside the box ways.

Speak No Evil (sl)

Posted on Updated on

Speak No Evil - MGB

Model’s Workshop is proud to support the Speak No Evil Anti-bullying Initiative by Models Giving Back. Read below for details and join the fight.


Speak No Evil – Anti bullying Campaign

February 7 – February 28, 2017

speaknoevilsl.wordpress.com

Cyberbullying is a relatively new phenomenon. Kids have been bullying other kids for generations. However, with the introduction of technology to expand their horizons, the latest generation have been able to bully others through the use of these technologies.

Cyberbullying itself is defined as the “willful and repeated harm inflicted through the use of computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices.”

And, unfortunately, those of us in Second Life are not immune.  With the rise of anonymous blogs and other forums where one can make comments under protection of anonymity, it seems that bullying has become more and more prevalent.  These comments are defaming, hurtful and have ruined reputations, businesses and forced some to leave SL entirely.

In a platform where we have the opportunity to learn about other cultures and the tolerance that goes along with it, this type of behavior should not be allowed to happen, but it does.  We as a fashion community in Second Life have decided it’s time to raise awareness of this issue and let those who are committing the bullying know that we see what they are doing, and will no longer stand and let them have the upper hand.

So Models Giving Back has decided to start the “Speak No Evil”  initiative.  This initiative is a collaborative effort of several modeling agencies here in Second Life and will run the month of February, the month of Love.   We ask that all members of the SL Fashion community join us as we take a stand against cyberbullying.

This month-long event will have two parts to it. Learn more at speaknoevilsl.wordpress.com

MW FashionDish – Model Size

Does size matter?

Why are models in Second Life so tall and thin?
Can a short or curvy model also succeed in SL fashion?

Join us for another Model’s Workshop FASHIONDISH Monday to chat about a widely debated topic in RL and SL fashion: MODEL SIZE.

We’ve seen a movement in real life to include curvier models on the runway, print and television ads. Underweight, unhealthy images of models are banned in some countries. Model Ashley Graham has proven that a curvy model can have a successful modeling career. But what’s the trend in SL? It’s not just about runway modeling anymore … so let’s chat, debate, share!
