The SL fashion world is nothing if not a place of contrasts. At the same time as it has been getting ugly about beauty, many people have been showing just how beautiful it can be by getting together to organise Love Donna Flora, to benefit Squinternet Larnia, the creator behind the fabulous jewellery and vintage fashion label Donna Flora, in her fight against cancer.
I've only met Squinternet once. I was having a problem buying something in her store - she was helpful and charming and wasted no time at all resolving the issue. Her customer care is every bit as good as her exsquisitely crafted products. It's a testament to her as a creator and as a person that so many people have rallied round to support her in her time of need. It's moving, and inspiring too, to see the many tributes to her on the blog that has been created for the event: http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/.
The Love Donna Flora event will run from 25th July - 24th August, with many designers donating items they've created as a tribute to Donna Flora - all the proceeds will go direct to Squinternet to help pay for her treatment and care. If you can't wait till then, why not take a trip to the Donna Flora store, treat yourself to some of the gorgeousness you'll find there, and give a little love?
