Fashion For Life 2013 ~ preview (3)

Celebrate.  Remember. Fight Back.

In all the excitement of the build up to Fashion For Life 2013, it's perhaps too easy to forget what this is really all about. Yes, it is about fabulous fashion, and talented designers selling their wares in fabulous builds, of course. But they're not giving all of this just for the fun of it. It's for a cause. Fashion For Life raises funds for The American Cancer Society.

SL's Fashion For Life is part of the Relay For Life event, which celebrates the lives of those who have battled cancer, remembers those who have sadly lost that battle, and fights back by raising funds to support research into a cure. SL residents have run Relay For Life events since 2005, and raised over $950,000. That's a staggering amount for what many people think of as just a computer game, and a wonderful example of how we can make a difference. So, while you shop at Fashion For Life, remember, your few lindens matter.

In this picture I'm wearing some of the items you will find exclusively at Fashion For Life 2013. Dress, earrings and makeup from Les Petitis Details; hair from Emo-tions.

FASHION FOR LIFE 2013 opens to the public at 12pm SLT on March 9th and runs for a whole week.

Visit the 9 sims and see the latest SL styles and accessories, party in the event zones and watch fashion shows produced by a range of top agencies.

FASHION FOR LIFE is helping to raise funds and awareness on behalf of RELAY FOR LIFE, so shop until you drop and help support this good cause.

INTERNATIONAL PLAZA (don't visit until noon on 9th March!)
