One of the best kept secrets of the SL fashion world is called Petit Chat Artfashion! created by my fellow citoyenne Trinity Yazimoto, it is a brand specialized in high quality that uses some of her digital artworks in her fashion designs.
Every piece of digital artwork is reworked and turned into a fabric to be used in her fashionable products. All of *PC*s creations are materials enabled allowing for a unique look in each piece.
Miss Yazimoto invests great care in the making of her pieces, blending both her digital artistry, photography and fashion design skills while honoring the long standing tradition of the French artisan that we so respect and admire.
This is French Fashion at it´s best and I noticed that in much the same way in which how I style myself changes when I visit Paris, it did as well in SL when wearing her clothes.
While some things from my French heritage will stay with me always, such as my love for wearing lingerie even when nobody is looking, as well as my reverence towards fashion as part of the art métier, other things come to the surface when I am in France.
I style, carry myself and put things together completely different there. What would feel completely over the top elsewhere suddenly makes sense there, and although in my everyday personal life I am more of a hippie chic chick, in France I am never afraid nor hesitant to show and exalt all of my womanhood. It´s a celebration of femininity!!!!
The dress on display above, Suspendu pour L´éternité (suspended for eternity) is mesh and textured with Miss Yazimoto´s art. The original painting (taken on the SIM of the University of Western Australia, a country towards which I feel a special connection) is currently on display at the Petit Chat Gallery where you can purchase it. You can also admire it on Flickr.
The dress itself is a modern take on the styles worn by both courtesans and nobility. I felt incredibly sexy, young and nonchalant while wearing it. Almost as if nothing, could get to me.

When in France you will notice that the woman-woman is exalted above the girl. Every age holds it´s appeal and is respected and admired. That means saying no-no to plastic surgery, accepting and being proud of wrinkles when they arrive and being considered more feminine with every passing year. In France each age holds it´s appeal and they well understand that one can´t remain young forever nor are you expected to.
This all translates into elegance and joie de vivre. No matter what their age, women are not afraid to be themselves. They know they don´t have to pretend for they will always be admired and loved for who they are not what they look like.
The *PC* Anywhere leather dress is also mesh and textured with digital artwork. It has never been exhibited in world until now. It´s the perfect lady like dress that could see any woman thru anything, anywhere. From work, to lunch and dinner with a date or family reunion.
I wore it and felt more woman than ever when I styled it as I would in France during the summer, by wearing it with ¨collants résille sans pieds¨ (fishnet tights) and pointy mid heel pumps. Oh là-là !

Then even if you are still all lady like during the day or night you can still go all out for a night out dining at the Shang Palace (inside the Shangri-la Hotel in Paris. Don´t go unless you love authentic Cantonese Cuisine). Then It will be off to Les Bains Douches which is reopening at the end of this year for the hottest ticket in town.
What better dress to wear then than the one shoulder Reflection of a Buddha (I honour you!) . An Asymmetrical dress in every way that matters. It will make you feel sexy and free at the same time !!!
