JAPAN RELIEF FUNDRAISER

Once again the generous fashion community is getting together to have a fund raiser for Japan.  These amazing people have tirelessly given their time, creativity and hearts to support the disaster relief in Japan. The event starts today and carries through to the 29th of May. I am going to post the information from their Note Card sent out and I will be blogging the amazing designs that will be available exclusively for this event.  This information is for Designers and all who would like to participate and those that would like to go and purchase or donate to this very much needed relief fund.

     On March 11, 2011, at 14:46pm (JPT), a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit the north-east coast of Japan, followed by a 124.3-foot wall of Tsunami. The quake and the tsunami crippled the Fukushima nuclear power plant, where radiation began to leak to air and water. As of April 14, the official death toll has been raised to more than 13,000, with more than 15,000 listed as missing, more than 190,000 people have lost their homes and are living in temporary shelters.

AZUL Esperanca/Egretta Red




The incredibly talented and creative Mami Jewell of Azul has put together this beautiful gown for JRF.  A stunning tight fitting, low cut, sweetheart neckline, Strapless top, flowing into a full length gown.  The red is such a beautiful summer red, bright and playful.  The waist which is adorned with a gorgeous rose bustle that falls at an angle from waist to hip is adorned with an organza flourish that flows out from the hips in soft layers and delicately falls behind and to the sides.

 You can see how the amazing bustle flows in the back as you move in this gown, and then settles as you stop, combining with the rest of the floor length skirting to make a truly one of a kind gown.  It is so delicate and gentle. Like a whisper.

The Detailing in the roses is beautiful with the array of colors dark in the middle and then slowly fading as the rose blooms.  I accessorised with hair from Plume called Sakura and Earrings and a necklace from G&K's Princess line in vivid red and silver.  A true beauty from Mami of Azul, go down to JRF and purchase yours today and support the relief efforts taking place for all those in need in Japan.


PURPLEMOON - Lady Dragon



 Poulet Koenkamp of Purplemoon adds Lady Dragon to JRF.  This gown is just incredible, the detail, beauty and creativity are astounding.  A long black gown that is flared up and the bottom and trimmed with gold tassels, long black gloves a black hood and colorful shawl that is also trimmed with gold fringe.


 You can see the detailing in the beautiful Shawl, the orange, reds, greens and golds in the trims, flowers and dragon.  I accessorized with Falling leaves bracelet and earrings from Earthstones and beautiful Eye make up from OhOhUp called Potpourri in Yellow.


As you turn you get the full effect of this stunning work, the amazing dragon that is embroidered on the back of the gown, the hood and around the shawl, the gold fringe enhancing its beauty and artful creation.  This is beautiful work from the very talented Poulet.  Please visit JRF and purchase this stunning gown and support the people of Japan.
