Midnight Express Ensemble - The Meiling look

Our final entry in the BOSL Fashion Week at the Domino Effect showcase on Sunday is the Midnight Express Ensemble.
It is a sheer organza blouse with ruffled edged sleeves and a surprise peekaboo back. Paired with a gorgeous black and white gingham print skirt, it's MEILING Couture sensuality at its very best.

And you think you have trouble rezzing skirts in SL...
In the Real LIfe show, our fabulous model had to quickly change and entered the catwalk without the skirt zipped up. Being a total professional, she literally held the skirt up with the most demure smile! No one knew there was a wardrobe malfuntion!

Last Train to San Fernando is running on time!

The long awaited Second Life capsule collection of the real life Last Train to San Fernando Collection is now out in the Meiling Couture SL store.
Launch yesterday at the Best of Second Life (BOSL) Fashion Week, the five outfits shown in the Divas showcase of top designers in SL, stunned audiences with their glamourous wearability which Meiling is so well known for in real life.
We congratulate the BOSL team on their amazing set and a top class professionally run show.
We included the chat from show's outfit descriptions. Enjoy!

Amita Yorcliffe brings us ‘For Ladies Who Brunch’ a delightful cocktail dress in a stunning shade of green with contrasting gold belt. This is a dress that you can dress up or down and will prove a mainstay of any fashionistas wardrobe.

Arialee Mills in the aptly named Royal Botanical Gown in a bold foliage print of greens greys and black, and black & white polka dot bodice. The sweetheart neckline and puff sleeves make this dress a romantic vision.

Leeandra Breen brings us the delightfully named Crumpets & Cream Top and Handkerchief skirt, In ice cream shades of luxury satin with a striking vibrant orange sash.

And turning more heads is Chamonix Boudreaux in the Cocorite Fan Fair Silk Blouse & Tapestry Skirt. This cleverly designed outfit has an elegant pencil skirt in muted shades of pinks and greys with a kick pleat back, and an ingenious high front. The pink satin blouse has leg of Mutton sleeves and a delightful raised back to give a tasteful glimpse of flesh.

Our last but certainly not least design from Meiling is the ‘Waiting for the Last Train to Fernando’ modelled by Jaosi Odriscoll. Two contrasting gingham fabrics combine to bring us a western saloon look with a couture twist.
