For The Love of MCQUEEN

AVENUE Presents "For the Love of McQueen"

AVENUE Models proudly presents “For the Love of McQueen”, a tribute to the late Alexander McQueen, where 38 fashion designers have come together to lend their support in each creating a design that is inspired by McQueen’s work and spirit.

These original designs, created within a week, will be showcased in two fashion shows (28 Feb and 07 March) on GOLden shopping sim and be available for sale at the designers’ stores through the month of March. 100% of the sales proceeds will be donated to the charity, Keep A Child Alive, since Alexander McQueen was a known supporter of similar AIDS / HIV charities.

The project initiated and produced by Rusch Raymaker, CEO of AVENUE Inc, shares her inspiration for organising this project :

“Alexander McQueen represents an immortal legacy of the spirit of innovation that continually pushed the envelope in fashion. Always one to shape and reshape fashion by deconstruction and reconstruction, McQueen was indeed a 21st century designer that constantly dared to refrain from conformity. He gave the world a new vision and perspective about fashion and his knack for story-telling to relay these messages was second to none, richly realized in his designs and fashion show productions. His mind, his spirit and his visions were larger than life.

For all these things and the sense of loss and grief I feel for losing such a great inspiration in my life, I dedicate this tribute, For The Love of McQueen, a collaboration of Second Life’s fashion designers, stylists, artists, members of the press and the team from AVENUE Models and AVENUE Magazine, to express our gratitude for the impression Alexander McQueen made on all our lives, real and virtual.”

The fashion show will be hosted by Angie Mornington of Fabulous Fashion and staged on a build realized by Babyhoney Bailey based on Rusch Raymaker’s inspiration for the show.
