and 7 questions Seven questions for Kate Stockholm, event organizer of the Last Call Charity Auction and Runway Show.
1. When is the event?
CheerCoach4EJS Gymnast and myself, in cooperation with JM Model Agency, are hosting the *Last Call* Charity Runway Show and Auction to be held on Saturday 11 December, 2010 at 6PM SLT at the JM Model’s Fashion House.
2. What is the event about?
The event will showcase designs from former Second Life resident and talented designer Ginny Talamasca. Many feel her advanced texture styling created a cutting edge look, timeless in way which few have surpassed. These days, her designs are rare as diamonds and equally hard to find.
3. It’s a charity event?
Yes! After the designs are shown on the runway, they will all be put up for silent auction ending 12 December. All proceeds go to Toys for Tots, a charity appropriate for this season and a charity we all feel strongly about.
4. What is the inspiration for the show?
I asked a friend where I could buy her Last Call outfit. She said impossible. Of course, I was dissapponted. I was also intrigued by both the quality of the clothes and the tragic story behind them.
5. A tragic story?
Yes. For two years in Second Life, Katterina Dagostion and Ginny Talamasca collaborated to produce an incredible quantity and quality of clothing for a very popular fashion line named Last Call. Suddenly and unexpectedly in October of 2007 Ginny, the lead designer, passed away in Real Life. Five months later, Last Call closed its doors forever.
6. So the Last Call fashion line is no longer available in Second Life?
Well… yes and no… After Ginny’s funeral, Last Call briefly re-opened. The permissions on the outfits were changed from copy/no-mod/no-trans to no-copy/mod/trans. So, in theory, the Last Call fashion line is still available for purchase from current owners.
7. This event makes those Last Call “gems” easy to find?
For one… umm… Last Call, volunteers have gathered over 50 donations of Ginny’s work to be auctioned off benefiting Toys for Tots. This show provides an opportunity to enjoy the Last Call fashion line all gathered in one place, experience/savor Ginny Talamasca’s talent one last time and benefit a deserving charity!
