Fashion for Life (in support of Relay for Life of Second Life) runs until March 20, 2016. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should. And just in case you’re curious, but haven’t been quite brave enough to hop a teleport, I’m going to give you a few awesome reasons to do so. Ready?
6. “All That Jaaaaaazz!”
The theme this year is “That’s Entertainment,” and you even if you don’t fancy yourself much of a shopaholic, you will probably find yourself entertained by some of the amazing builds this year. There’s a “Bladerunner”-themed sim, a David Bowie sim, a Beatles tribute sim. Fantasy fans, you can even explore a Viking sim, and stumble through the wardrobes in Narnia, too! (I couldn’t help myself…) Check out this awesome post from one of the talented FFL bloggers with some stunning pictures of this year’s sim builds!
5. “Because we’re living in a material world, and I am a material girl…”
Like to shop? Pick up your FFL teleport hud, and make sure your partner hasn’t hidden your purse! Fashion for Life features somewhere in the neighborhood of eighty designers with shops across multiple themed sims, offering everything from mesh formal and casual-wear to RP clothing and accessories for men and women. There’s something for everyone at Fashion for Life this year (and the handy teleport hud will help you figure out where to go to hunt down your favorite designers!) Don’t believe me? Check out some of these eye-catching photos from some of FFL’s officialbloggers!

4. “One way, or another, I’m gonna find ya, I’m gonna getcha, getcha, getcha, getcha…”
Did I mention that there was a HUNT?!
Many designers participating in Fashion for Life this year have a hunt item available. The hunt item can be found in the store on sim. Just find the little black box, and treat yourself to a little bit of treasure from some of your favorite designers!
The hunt isn’t the only special event taking place. Some designers have also offered up special exclusive pieces for Fashion for Life’s silent auction and one-of-a-kind auction.
One-of-a-Kind Auction: March 19, 2016 @ 3pm SLT.
(For a preview of the items that will be offered during the one-of-a-kind auction, please see this post on the Fashion for Life blog.)
3. “I’m here for your entertainment!”
Fashion for Life isn’t all about the clothes. Each day during the event, there will be several events. Everything from fashion shows to dances to live performers! For a list of scheduled entertainers, please see the post on the official Fashion for Life blog here. For a list of scheduled events, please see the post on the official Fashion for life blog here.
2. “Sing it for the ones that you left behind…”
Perhaps one of the best things about Fashion for Life is WHY we do it. Cancer has affected many of us. Whether we have watched a love one fight the beast, or we have battled it ourselves, we know what kind of damage it can do.
That’s why items sold at Fashion for Life don’t give profit to any of the designers involved. Instead, that money goes directly to the American Cancer Society. That’s right, ladies and gents–it’s all for charity. Also, cancer sucks. It really, really sucks. Every dollar that we can put towards helping those who fight it and look for a cure is a dollar well-spent.
1. “And you, and you, and you… You’re gonna love me!”
There’s so much to do and so much to see during Fashion for Life this year. Beautiful sim builds, gorgeous garments, and entertainers with energry! If you’re still curious about what you might be missing, check out the official Fashion for Life 2016 Guidebook.
