10 Years in SL Feature Blog 1

Posted in Anniversary,High Fashion,Sascha's Designs,SL Mesh,SL Prim by Piper Hanriot on February 9, 2018

On 30 January 2018 I celebrated 10 years in Second Life.  So to mark this milestone, which to be honest, I never thought I would reach, I have decided to write 10 special feature blogs.  Some of you already know about my early days in SL and have seen the photos, so these feature blogs will be focused on my 10 years in SL fashion.  Each blog will partially tell a story.

For this, my first feature blog is dedicated to the simply fabulous Sascha Frangilli of Sascha’s Designs.  I have known Sascha for almost as long as I have been in SL and we are still friends today, so this is the perfect place to start.

10 Years SAS_001

Wilhelmina in gold (classic and prim with sleek skirt)

After spending the first 4 months in SL finding a niche that I could fit into, a friend invited me to a fashion show, which was being held at Sascha’s Designs.  The show was great, hosted by Sascha herself.  Of course I joined the group and had a good look around her store, falling in love with all the gowns.  A few weeks later Sascha sent out a notice advising that she is looking for an organiser and host for her fashion shows.  So I applied. I was very surprised to find out that I was the only applicant, so Sascha hired me.  I shadowed Sascha for the first show and the first gown that she gave me to wear for this show was the Wilhelmina.  I loved this gown and I was super excited to style and wear it.  The fashion shows were huge fun and I enjoyed every one.

Over the past 10 years Sascha’s work has gone from strength to strength and she has created so many beautiful gowns and outfits.  Sascha is known for her gowns first and foremost, using a variety of gorgeous textures.  Even now I still get excited when I open each new box and see how many different skirts have been included.  Sascha likes to cater for all women’s styles and tastes. In this blog I have decided to try to show you some of the different skirt types.

10 Years SAS Trouble

As well as her gowns, Sascha’s pant and skirt ensembles have also proved to be a huge hit.  Before mesh came into SL, a lot of Sascha’s pant sets were teamed up with boots from Bax Cohen with each pant set box containing at least 4 tops, either in different styles or in different colours.  It was hard to choose just one pant set to feature in this blog, however I do still clearly remember that at the time the Rock Chic set was my favourite.  It was my ‘go to’ outfit for the weekends and for when I was just exploring SL.

As Sascha continued her own journey through fashion, she has also become well-known for her hats.  The very first hat to feature with one of her gowns was the Divination and I remember that particular hat was huge!  Again, it was hard to choose just one gown with a hat to show you, however one of my favourites dresses, inspired by the film My Fair Lady, is the Ula.  The style is vintage, the textures are vintage, it is such a beautiful gown and of course comes with a hat as well as an umbrella to complete the look.

Mesh clothing were the first items to arrive in SL before mesh bodies and heads and Sascha embraced the change and has created some stunning gowns and outfits in mesh as well.  Having shown you enough gowns in this blog, I decided to opt for the Lou Lou pant set.  Having un-meshed my avatar for the most of these photos, applying this gorgeous mesh outfit was a lot easier than trying to fit it whilst wearing a mesh body, as they all need appliers, but I know that you all know enough about that already.

Well folks, I could ramble on and on and show you more of the amazing work both past and present from Sascha’s Designs and I will blog more of her work again very soon.  In the meantime, I hope that you have enjoyed reading and gosh with 10 years in SL under my belt, maybe I should write a book?  Until next time …
