Saturday, September 5th at 12 PM SLT is the date that GIA CEO, Managers, Top Models and A-Listers (VIPs) will never forget. Nothing but 24 of the most respected fashion designers presented on the catwalk their brand new fall collection, unreleased designs and latest releases. We have been in service for little over 24 hours and made it till the end of this unique fashion event! Crosby Noricks, founder of graced us with her presence by popping up at many runway shows and got to enjoy the show from both front row and backstage points of views.

The first day of International Fashion Day 2009, the sim traffic has been boosted to 43,500 !

With an incredible rise the second day set to 62,044 sim traffic. Herradura Baar, the incredible show coordinator who helped me along with Haidyn Inglewood to put this event together sent me the following pic while I was taking a rest after such an intensive event, the email was untitled “Try not to freak when you look at this picture I’ve sent you…
This incredible success would not be possible without the presence of international top models, featured fashion designers who stopped-by and complimented the work of the agency coordinators and models and the support of the blogger community. We have been honored to be interviewed in the popular Fabulous Fashion TV show hosted by Angie Mornington (see below)

24 fashion shows have been presented on 4 different runway stages, built specifically for the event by the talented Babyhoney Bailey. She did also rebuild the entire Glance sim.

As a final note, this event proved us that bringing RL fashion in SL is a direction towards which virtual fashion is looking to. Through unique partnerships and exclusive event concepts this union can only be successful.

As of today, third day after the event, the sim traffic has dropped a little down to 38,168, which is still an incredible number that we never thought to reach!
