Beyond Black and White


One of the pleasures of Fashion For Life has been seeing how creators have responded to the theme. Most obviously are the amazing greyscale builds that remind us all that black and white has a power all its own. Most wittily, SarahtheRed Aubierre of Vanitas Vesture focused on red, green and blue – the RGB color mixing that is literally beyond black and white. Some did not incorporate the theme into their clothing, guided by their own inspirations. Some, like Mami Jewell of Azul – adopted the theme fully and created black and white masterpieces. Canna Sombra is a powerful statement in black and white. You’ve seen the gown before in other colors, since Gidge and I did a shoot together. The dress is so stunningly beautiful we fell in love with its shape and flow. At FFL, you can find this lovely dress and help support cancer research at the same time.


The snug, body hugging form that leads into a mermaid skirt is always so sexy. It always makes me think of Marlene Dietrich, Lana Turner and Rita Hayworth. You can remove the prims and wear just the long system skirt with a slit on the side which makes me think of Jessica Rabbit.


The dress comes with a knee-length option for cocktail parties. I left off the gloves to make it less formal. You can see the lovely side slit on the skirt – side slits and slashes are one of the hot trends for fall, so it’s a perfect dress for the season.
