Rock Your Rack is On It’s Way!

October 5, 2019 – October 19, 2019

7th Annual Rock Your Rack Event is on the way!

Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women. 1 in 8 women, and an every increasing percentage of men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.

Models Giving Back is pleased to present Rock Your Rack, an annual fundraising event combining the best of SL Music, Art and Fashion to support the work of breast cancer charities and raise awareness for early detection which is critical to a positive outcome for this devastating disease.

This Year’s Sim Sponsor is Digital Farm Systems. Other sponsors include Awesome Breed Creations, Dark Betty, Emerald Couture, MOZ Fashion Designs, and Yasum Fashionart.

This year’s event will support the National Breast Cancer Foundation which provides free mammograms, education, support and early detection services to anyone in need.

Designers will be providing limited edition creations with 100% of the sales of those items going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation along with a fine selection of the newest, exclusive and most popular designs for your shopping pleasure. And, of course, the very popular 10L hunt will be up and running in the 85 different designer booths and 25 different artist booths.

For a complete listing of events and more details on this year’s event, please visit the website: http://rockyourrack.wordpress.com

This year’s event officially opens to the public on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 12:00 am SLT and will close at 11:59 pm SLT on Saturday, October 19, 2019.

Together we can make a difference!

Those who are unable to attend but wish to support the cause, may visit the Model’s Giving Back official donation page at https://fundraise.nbcf.org/MGB2019 where donations can be made directly using a variety of means.

It’s so much fun when an artistic sim inspires an artistic shot when I’m blogging. That is what makes it so much fun for me. This one features the “Viivi” gown in Onyx from AZUL for this month’s On 9 event. This fantastic strapless gown has a rich texture and open right side. Included are also the shoes complete with the metal accents up the leg and also the panties to do under the dress. It comes in 8 different colors for the On 9 Event through the end of August.

So be sure to head on over over to the AZUL mainstore and pick up your favorite color of this dress and get out there and finish up summer with a little vintage bang!

The newest round of the Fashion Zone Shopping event is now open for you to enjoy! I am walking in the fashion show for this event on Saturday and this is one of the looks that you will see in the show. I’m presenting the “Eve” mini dress here, a fantastic little summer dress that comes with a HUD that allows you to change to one of five different solid colors. I’ve selected black for my look. It was easy to add accessories to customize my look for this dress and it can easily be more casual or dressier if you choose. Get yours today at The Fashion Zone in the lower level sponsor section.

The Fashion Show is at 2pm SLT Saturday, August 17, 2019 at The Fashion Zone! Come and see the Amazing Impressions Models and their stylings with the items from this Month’s edition of The Fashion Zone.
