Fashion Research Institute is pleased to present designer Misteria Loon’s newest collection for Pas de Deux in an innovative fashion format. ‘Pearls of the Ocean’ is an immersive, interactive fashion installation in which the audience is invited to engage with the models and the set. This show will be presented concurrently with a joint audience at the Fashion Camp, held at New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Program Lab as part of an independent fashion designer’s event held during the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. Members from this audience have been invited to log in and visit the events.
Pearls of the Ocean features eight lovely mer beauties and four handsome mermen arrayed in a unique set designed to best showcase the mer fashions of Pas de Deux. Misty’s exquisite colors and her careful exploration of avatar apparel parameter space all emerge in one luscious collection of fashion displayed in a unique marine setting perfect for this collection. Audience members are encouraged to purchase Misty’s ethereal fashions and to join in the set as part of the show. Poses have been placed around the perimeter of the set, where audience members may join in and experience the modeling process.
Pearls of the Ocean will be held Sunday, September 13th, at 8 am PDT/11 am EDT in our Second Life region of Shengri La. The region will be locked and closed at 6:30 am PDT and will reopen promptly at 8 am PDT. The usual fashion swag will be available to our visitors, with free pearl jewelry to be discovered in a heap of clams and oysters presided over by the illustrious composer and musician Kyle Beltran. Guests will be welcomed by the ever lovely Harper Beresford, noted socialite and SL fashionista.
