Coucou !

So a new round started from yesterday at the Fashion Collective.
Did i told you already how much i love this event ? Yesssss .
But before starting telling us about this new round in this so great place, i have some lil informations id like to share with you.
I'll be exhibiting some of my artworks from my "Wandering alone" exhibition (currently displayed at my artgallery) at the really famous Raglan Shire Artwalk. Its a huge artistic event gathering every year from 8 years already a lot of artists in SL. 
The event will start on the sunday, may 4th and will end on sunday may 25th.
I will of course post about it as soon it will start.

The second event i want to tell you about is the Penumbra fashion week 2014.
Petit Chat will be present at this huge fashion event with my ArtFashion productline.
You'll find there some of the exclusive dresses i made for the Fashion Collective, but also some new and exclusive releases i am currently creating for this very special event.
The high point will be the fashion show. It will happen on tuesday may 27th at 2pm SLT and Petit Chat items will be displayed by profesional models with other clothes from Glam Dreams and Giulia Design.
Of course ill post the slurl in time.

In june, ill be also participating to the the Fashion For Life event, with also a fashion show, but ill tell you more later.

For now, let's focus on the new round of Fashion collective !

As you can see the decor set by Nayomi Gartner, the talented manager of the event, is the same than for the previous round. A gorgeous and green camp lost somewhere in the mounts.
23 incredible designers are bringing to you here some exclusive items on the theme "lightness of lace".
Of course the theme has been interpretated in many ways by each of them.

For this round, i created 2 new dresses under my ArtFashion productline. Both dresses have been textured from 2 abstract pics i made from an exhibition i saw last year at SL 10 birthday event.
The exhibition was called Once upon in Second Life and i made from it 2 artworks, called Rainbow trip and Rainbow acid.
Of course both dresses have materials enabled.
The first one is a beautiful gown : Rainbow Trip.
You can find the original paint here : Rainbow Trip in Flikr 
Here is how it look if you run with non ultra graphic performance (without advanced lighting model and ambiant occlusion checked in your preference menu/graphic performance tab).

As you can see it's a really colored and brightful gown. The top is covered with lace added on the fabric.
Now let's turn our graphic performance to ultra and check how these materials features are looking.

And let's take a close look to the laced top part :

Materials maps have been created separatly for each part, then gathered together, for being more realistic.

The second item i created for this round is a shorter dress and textured with my Rainbow Acid pic . You can see it in my Flick stream (clic the link).

The rainbow acid dress is also really colored and has a seducive piece of lace in the bottom.
This is how it look with middle graphic performance.

Let's turn now our graphic performance to ultra :))

So this is what you will see, if you enable the materials features on your viewer. Here too, lace and fabric have been mapped separately in order to render a more realistic relief.
And guess whose stall we see behind me ? Hehehehhehe... my friend Pinkrayne is also part of this round, with her store Holy shirt.
She created some one sleeve tops really lovely for the occasion.

The great thing about the rainbow acid dress, is that for many shapes you wont need even to wear an alpha layer. I've tried each of the 5 sizes with standard sized shapes and of course with my usual one and i may say i could avoid to wear an alpha for every of them. Of course, we know all that there is almost as much different shapes in sl than in RL, so we can't make a rule of it but still, maybe you'll be lucky enough for this apply to you.

So now, i think i have talked enough, and it's time to go for shopping at  The Fashion Collective event (clic to get the slurl). 
I already did a lil shopping there and brought some nice lil things at home hehehehhehehe

See ya there !

kisses !


(All pics from this post haven't been photoshoped except for croping. You see here the exact same view i got on my viewer)


Hello !

A new round of the Fashion Collective is starting from the 5th of April till the 18th.
I particularly love this event, as Nayomi Gartner, the event manager, put a really great care to the decor for each round. She gives the theme and she set an awesome surround for our creations.
I must say that every items you can see there are exclusive ones. That means they have been created specially for the event according to the theme Nayomi gave to us and till the end of each round you won't be able to find them elsewhere than in the Fashion Collective skybox.

So the new round will stand in a lovely gypsy camp. About 20 designers are bringing to you exclusive creations on the gypsy theme.

And of course Petit Chat had to be here with the ArtFashion product line.
The theme was great for me since i have in my collection of artwork 2 digital illustrations about gypsy camps.
One has been taken in Wildfleur sim, and the other one in Goatswood village, one of my favorite SL destinations.

So let's start with the first one : Nomads. For this one i used my artwork with same name, currently displayed in my "Wandering alone" exhibition at my artgallery .
Its a long gown and of course it has materials enabled.
But let's first take a look at it, without materials enabled on my viewer. Just at middle graphic performance with basic shaders enabled.

The texture itself represent a gypsy caravan in Goatswood village. The gown is really elegant.

Now, let's turn our graphics to the max with advanced lighting model and ambiant occlusion enabled.

Ta-da ! See how the texture shines. Materials in SL are probably the recent improvement i enjoy the most. It gives to textures an aspect really real and so beautiful.

The back of the gown has a beautiful long ribbon with a butterfly on the top.

The gown is copy only. It comes in 5 standard size + a fitted mesh version that should fit most of you.
You will find in a note card in the pack a serie of alpha layers. Choose the best one for you among them.
Price is 360 L$.

The second item i specially created for this new round is of course called "Gypsy".

This one has been textured with another of my artworks, called "Gypsy" too, made from a snapshot taken in wildfleur and no longer displayed in my artgallery, but you can see it in the gypsy caravan in my garden just beside my mainstore .

The dress is really feminine and has a mesh chest jewell to add on it.

Once you enable materials in your viewer the dress become something unique and so refined.
The dress comes in 4 sizes with several alpha layers to better fit you (on a note card aswell).

The price for this one is 300 L$.
The dress is copy only.

You will find both dresses on my stall there.

And while you are there, dont forget to make a visit at my friend Pinkrayne's stall (Holy shirt), just beside mine.
She has 2 lil skirts and tanks just adorable.

See by yourself :

this is the blue and red version

And here is the purple version.

Isn't this adorable ?

I love both of them, but i confess i have a lil preference for the blue and red one :)

And you should see all that is on the other stalls ! Tons of great items !

So taxi is here : The Fashion Collective .

I really hope you will enjoy your visit there.

See ya soon

Hugs !




Sometimes ago, ive been given the opportunity to participate in an Easter Market. And i decided to give it a try, why not ?
And i'm not disapointed at all, because i could see that the managers of the event gave a big care to the decor. So it has been a real delight to install my tables and stuffs in this lovely surround.
Its a precious spring garden with a circle shape.
All around plenty of designers have installed their stall and added some easter decorations.
Since the theme is Easter and spring, all items are related to that.

So of course Petit Chat has its own stall and i've been so pleased to add a bit of deco around it.

 On my tables you will find 2 of my latest releases : the Persephone dress and the Love soul dress. 
Both have 2 colors available.

The Persephone dress comes in grey color.

And in pink.

The other dress is called Persephone, like the sprink Goddess.

It comes in grey with flower brocades.
and in old pink. (and behind me, this is the stall of my friend Pinkrayne heheheheh)

So the 4 dresses comes in several sizes, with alpha layer and panties.

But the cherry on the pie is that the event has also a lil hunt. You have to find Easter eggs all around the stalls and just buy them for 0L$.
And since i was just releasing my very first mesh skirt, all made from scratch by myself (yay !) i've decided to give it away as hunt prize.

You will find the Easter egg for this skirt under my tables.
This skirt comes with 5 standard sizes but ALSO in fitted mesh version.
so if you are using one of the very latest viewers, try that one first.

You will find another version of this skirt as group gift in my mainstore.

Hope you will enjoy !

Taxi for Easter market : Easter market event till the 16th of april
Taxi for Petit Chat mainstore : Petit Chat mainstore

Stay tuned, coming soon a new round of The collective fashion with a gypsy theme !
