Tribute to James Bond Show by The Collective


, , , , , , , ,

The Collective organised a fashion show as a tribute to 50 years of James Bond. The venue was built in the spirit of the opening scene of the movie GoldenEye –  a Soviet chemical weapons facility.

In this show all the Bond girls strolled down the runway to greet their dear agent 007. I had the pleasure of playing two of these roles; Honey Rider and Teresa Di Vincenzo.

The show was hosted by Mr. Bond himself, together with Miss Moneypenny. I have borrowed parts of the show’s script for this post. Here we go!

James Bond: “Lets start with Honey Rider… yes I remember her… I met her on the beach in this sexy white bikini. Dr. No’s mens caught us and brought us to his mansion. Our awesome DJane Belice is wearing right this white bikini out of the hand of SHINE tonight.”
Miss Moneypenny: “Yes James and luckily she stayed alive and could wear her dress from Saschas Designs for you…”

Oh those golden memories, but the show must go on…

Miss Moneypenny: “Now we come to the only Lady you ever married in your career but it shows how dangerous it is to be with you.”
James Bond: “Teresa di Vincenzo… Tracy… From On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Yes it was a hard part and I fell in love as I saw her in her stunning dress from Ghee.”
James Bond: “She was killed shortly after the wedding by a drive by shooting.”
Miss Moneypenny: “Yes James and she gave her life again to save you.”

TC Bond Teresa v2

– Teresa outfit by ~ghee~
– Midori hair by Truth
– Docka Lace strapless bra and panty in peach/nude pink by Lily Bird

What I totally loved about the set was that on both sides of the runway models waiting for their turn were dancing in black bubbles – just like in the intro of each Bond movie.

Spring 2013 with Morea Style


I had the pleasure to watch the Morea Style show at the recent Milan Fashion Week organised by Solo Evane.

Here is the description of Morea Style spoken by the show director and host Genevieve Kamala:
“Morea Style, on the grid for almost 6 years, is well known for the excellence of its designs, the elegance of forms and the incomparable quality and choice of colors.
Originality, quality and exclusivity are priorities for Morea, a woman with a very special skill in creating true fashion masterpieces.
Each season Morea combines the actual trend with the tastes and expectations of customers, and this contributes to the success of her style that is always  sophisticated and elegant and with that extra “touch” of sensuality present in every creation, this makes each garment perfect to the final  detail , so that every  woman desires it in her closet.
Morea, like the finest French couturiers, understands women’s need to feel sexy and their need to feel the contact of light sensual fabrics against their skins. She also recognizes that a woman needs different looks for different occasions, so her range is extremely varied.
Cocktail dresses, ball gowns and pant suits are always featured in her fashion creations, all carrying the same marking of sensual elegance and beauty. As you will see today, we will go across all different occasions, giving a new twist to the word urban or casual…
All the women of SL aim to own at least  one of  Morea Style  creations because  every single piece of Morea Style means  perfection, elegance, sensuality, charm and  always an incredible style and love for details.  This collection will put a spell on you and I am sure you will simply adore every single piece you are going to see today on our catwalk!”

I’ve been a great fan of Morea’s designs for many years, so I completely agree with Genevieve!Morea Style 1 Shena Neox
