Saturday, august 27th, Farouche Tres modeling agency, presented an absolutly original fashion show concept. By showcasing the incredible designs of Vero Modero in a whole new way, Androgyny.
Androgyny is a term—derived from the Greek words ανήρ, stem ανδρ- (anér, andr-, meaning man) and γυνή (gyné, meaning woman)—referring to the combination of masculine and feminine characteristics, here used through fashion. (from wikipedia)
In other words, we could call it being a fashionably cross-dressing.
On the poster you can see Veronica Krastner and Ewan Crumb. Veronica is wear the male outfit Dark, which is a perfect exemple of an androgynous / unisex outfit. Males rocks this outfit but a female can wear this outfit with pasties and be stunning! Ewan is wearing Night Crow Jewel, perfect for the male who wants to be original and out of the box. We all love to get out of our rl comfort zone and SL is a great place to do it.
10 models rocked the runway under the direction of Tristan Tiaret, Morgane Batista and Sue Moonwall. 3 back up models were on the ready to take the place in case it’s needed.
Here is what the models wore during the fashion show:

The 3 males and 3 females wore together the same outfit on the runway, presenting 2 ways of styling it depending on your avatar gender.
Here’s my own taste of styling with the Armiore outfit. From the other end of a room, if nobody looked at my name, you wouldn’t imadiatly know if i’m female or male, which is exactly what androgyny is. I used a pastie to stay warm, added bracelets, unisex short nails and face make up along with an edgy haircut.
My picture is made by Sue Moonwall, who also helped me by doing her own blog presenting the Biker set. A total of 5 models will have blogged this fashion show for you all check our their posts too.
