Congratulations Mz Eva Firethorn (empress1959), winner of the Model’s Workshop Japanese Couture Styling Challenge that took place on October 16th. Mz Eva’s stunning geisha ensemble and entertaining presentation charmed us all and became the overwhelming winner of the challenge.
Mz Eva explains, “A Geisha possesses talents in a wide variety of arts, playing musical instruments, singing, dancing, traditional tea ceremonies, flower arranging, poetry and literature. Not to forget various games including the art of conversation…isn’t that the biggest game of all?” she giggles, “and the Kimono, which literally means a ‘thing to wear’ (ki “wear” and mono “thing”), are my inspiration for this look—a beautiful performer with something beautiful to wear. Just like in the movies I used to watch when I was younger. Timeless, traditional, couture.” Great job Mz Eva. Watch for Mz Eva’s model feature by Chloe Electra in an upcoming issue of ModeLS Magazine.
Shown below are the top three models selected by the audience and fellow contestants of the challenge: (l-r) Mz Eva Firethorn (empress1959), JewelOfDeNiel and Tivi Spiritor (tiviyah).
Great job by all the models who took part in the challenge. You were all beautiful in your own interpretation of Japanese Couture. Next month’s theme will be announced soon.
