Many viewers of Designing Worlds may remember our fascinating show in Shekhawati – the region based upon the culture and art of Rajastan in India.
We have received news from them about an exciting event this weekend:
Veekay Navarathna and Medley Estates proudly announce Sensations 2010, the third annual fashion competition being held at Shekhawati, Land of Merchants and Warriors.
The purpose of the competition is to showcase the true nature and joy of individual expression through fashion. Competitors will participate in challenges throughout the competition to test their design ability and creative instinct. For each challenge, competitors will be required to design a fashion ensemble that represents the weekly theme. There will be four different themes, one for each week of the competition, giving individiual contestants the opportunity to shine to their fullest extent. Cash prizes of more than $L75,000 will be given out.
The competition will take place at our sim based on Shekhawati — a region in Rajasthan, India famous for its fresco paintings on the walls of mansions, palaces and forts. The sim is lovely, and well worth taking the time to visit. There is an art gallery showcasing modern and classic paintings from India and also the works of artists of Second Life from various countries. It has an amphitheater, shops, and a runway for fashions shows. Medley Estates and Maniera Magazine last year organized our very successful Sensations 2009, a fashion designer’s contest on the theme of “Sunset Boulevard”.
The kickoff event for this year’s competition is taking Nov. 6th 10am slt — a meet and mingle for all those interested in the competition, featuring live entertainment, dancing and fun for all.
