In just 2 days the biggest, most extraordinary fundraising event will open, Wanderlust: Fashion For Life. FFL is an event supporting Second Life’s Relay for Life campaign to raise funds for the American Cancer Society, from June 7- 20, 2014. There will be 10 sims of fashion, runway shows, live music and DJ events. Last year was my first time visiting Fashion For Life and I was awestruck by the amazing sim builds, fabulous fashions, and inspiring generosity. I’m very honored and humbled to be selected as an offical blogger this year. Cancer has touched my life, this cause is incredibly important to me and I urge you to support Relay for Life SL campaign. Let’s pledge to raise more money this year than ever before. We have 14 days of giving, let’s start now DONATE!
Fashion For Life runs from June 7 to 20, 2014 across 10 sims designed to reflect modes of transportation (list below). This year’s theme is Wanderlust – a reflection of the Relay For Life theme Journey to a Promise.

Fashion For Life opens June 7th, but for a generous few it will open on June 6th with VIP Early Access. What is that and how does it work? Well, designers are busy setting up their displays and will be finishing tonight. On the 6th, all the stores get inspected to see they are using the official Relay For Life vendors and so on before the grand opening on the 7th. Meanwhile, it’s also going to be open to up to 100 early access VIPS who make a generous 2500 linden donation to Relay For Life at the special vendor on the American Cancer Society island.
So if you have always wanted to get into an event before it opened, stroll the shops while it is uncrowded and lag-free, this is your chance. With 100 people over 10 sims, there will be plenty of room to stretch and enjoy the space.
Our mission is to maximize donations to the American Cancer Society via the SL Relay for Life while creating a great sales environment for in-world avatar content (including lowered lag). Our goal is to provide complete transparency in financial and operational actions to all residents. And to have fun doing this!
Efforts and funds committed to FFL go to support American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. We are entirely volunteer driven and 100% of the funds raised are presented as a charitable donation to ACS from the residents of Second Life.
Men, women and children clothing designers, skin, tattoo and hair designers, jewelry and accessory designers and pose/hud/stand designers are all encouraged to participate. This is an event celebrating Second Life® fashion and the many businesses that make us fabulous.
