…and we are euphoric, satisfied, tired, in love.
This is my chance to thanks everybody who made the show possible, and who made it so touching and special.
It’s always a labor of love, for me, everythime I release a new BlackLabel collection; it’s something that takes birth from what is my RL, from my paintings and drawings, from my very personal taste, life, thoughts.
It is a very touching and hard experience to let it go when it’s the time, to open the doors and let people see it, own it, live it.
And everytime it happens, I hope with all my heart that it won’t be just a dress to wear, but a fragment of a new experience.
It’s a lot of work. It takes passion, patience, determination. It takes confidence.
It takes time, and love.
It takes the beautiful people that surrounded me with everything I needed and could have asked for.
Winter Jefferson, best of friends, spoiled Muse, little prince to my nature of fox, who spent hours with me, inspiring this, and then brainstorming with me to create a show concept, and that stayed up long nights to help me and gift me his wonderful performance during the show; and his daughter, who demanded a dress made of flowers, and who got it of course. That’s what you do when a princess demands something. And it became one of my favorite pieces in this collection.
Dahlia Joubert, who worked so hard and with such an incredible strenght and patience to fine tune the show, train the models, and what’s more important, to support me as a friend. Oh and who stood the bother of my doubts and strange requests^^
Mavi Beck, cause she is my sweet friend and listened to me freaking out… plus her work suggestions, of course.
Keira Seerose was amazing enough to compose the opening poetry. Thank you. So so so much.
All the Modavia team of course, the beautiful models who accepted my twisted vision and my weird request of a fashion show different from the usual.
Tourette Laval, who offered us the perfect music for the show, and she was able to understand what I wanted from her. And trust me, if you heard me describing music, you would understand it’s not an easy task!
Photos Nikolaidis and Storm Torvalar, who created the beautiful jewelry we displayed at the show; it’s amazing how much they can sing to my weird soul! The fact that I call them family is one more thing I am extremely grateful for.
Aida Ewing and M4rylin Magic: first, for creating two special skins that fit my collection in a wonderful and haunting way; second, for being my special guests in the thrid replica of the show, performing as the Lovers. They are one of the most sweet and wonderful couples of SL, and it was a true honour to have them in that role.
Ruy Bury created the great animations that were such a sweet sweet part of the show, while I owe my gratitude to Del May and Marcopol Oh for the static poses that were perfect for my goal.
Del May and Marcopol Oh are also the fantastic artists that accepted to display their artworks in the room where the show took place, and for this I am grateful.
Thalia Heckrot was supportive enough to guest me and my million of prims in her own sim. Because, darlings, let’s face it: BlackLabel it’s always so terribly primmy! Without her, I would have had more troubles with all the linking and taking back to inventory…so thankyou, la Thalia!
The Staff behind Miamai has my deepest gratitude for supporting me, helping me reach people with my vision, giving me the chance to let my little voice be heard in this big world. it’s an honour to have you all working with me.
This show saw the public itself as a very important performer. Thing is, you make art for people to see it.
You create art for your soul, but you need someone to look at it. Otherwise, it’s like talking to yourself in an empty room.
This is why my work is possible thanks to you all who follow me, who take your time to look at what I create, who decide to spend your money supporting my work.
Miamai would not be possible without you.
BlackLabel would never have born if not for your constant and beautiful pouring love on my creations.
And the courage to create a new collection everytime, it comes from the confidence you give me when you appreciate my work.
So this is my thankyou to all of you, beautiful people of Second Life, for having accepted my vision with an open mind, and having loved it.
Thankyou for making this possible, to every one of you.
I love you.
