The Dressing Room and it's sister event The Dressing Room Blue were some of the longest established regular discount shopping events in SL, spawning and out lasting many imitators. A regular haunt for the budget savvy fashionista, TDR offered quality designs at reasonable prices, with a new collection every week. It must have taken a lot of energy to keep that going for 2 years, and it's perhaps not surprising that Linka Demina decided at the end of 2012 that a change was needed. So TDR Fusion was born.
With the same 40-70l$ discount policy, but with full price items from the same designers also available, Fusion has a new collection from some 25 designers, including guests, every fortnight. It's much bigger than the old Dressing Rooms, which is a pity if, like me, you were fond of the "tiny boutique full of hidden treasures" feel of the old stores - but, the quality of the designs on offer is as good as ever, and there's a lot of variety in each bigger collection. So still very much a "must check out" destination.
