New York Couture Comes to YouTube

Real world art combines with virtual world design as the story of Georgia O'Keeffe's "Oriental Poppies" inspires Second Life couture. Our video features a short bio of O'Keeffe, her emgergence as an artist in New York, several of the nude photos by her husband, Albert Stieglitz, that propelled her to a somewhat unwelcome notoriety, reproductions of her paintings, and, of course, a video of our model dancing in the Oriental Poppy Dress on site in New Mexico's "painted desert."

What a wonderful inspiration! Bringing RL aesthetics to SL with such care and attention to detail, to history, and to the personal story of such a major feminist icon is a powerful thing, and I wonder what you might do with some of Frida Kahlo's or Faith Ringgold's work in your designs?
