    Default Elanthian Fashion Week 5117 [NEWS 4 61]

    Feastday, the 12th day of Phoenatos (August 12th) will see the return of Elanthian Fashion Week. Since the festivities start at the end of the Frontier Days celebrations, the sponsors have decided to hold the launch party in the impressive setting of the Wehnimer's Landing Museum. Expect the champagne to flow freely and the conversation to be convivial.

    Restday (August 13th) is likely to be anything but restful! The week will start with the first in a series of lectures, presentations, and discussions. Bring a notebook and embark on an educational journey over the next 8 days where you will learn all there is to know about fashion - practical and ostentatious - as well as the intricacies of alterations, merchant etiquette, and accessorizing. Delve into the secrets of Nalfein fans, the magical properties of gems, and traditional hairstyles of the Dhe'nar. Familiarize yourself with the subtleties of cultural hunting and fishing attire, the latest trends in the Elven court, and the art of masquerade.

    Volnes (August 14th) will see the launch of a 5-day shoe sale in Ta'Illistim, with the chance to pick up the latest in fashionable footwear at bargain prices and new stock added daily. Throughout the rest of the week you will also get the chance to relax and have some fun. There will be fast-paced games like Greedy Gremlins, Style Scramble, and Picture This, along with more leisurely activities such as fishing, fortune telling, and scrapbooking. All with fashion in mind, of course! You can also expect to see cobbling wares and other merchandise for sale. Listen out for announcements!

    As the week draws to a close the fun really picks up a pace! On the evening of Day of the Huntress (August 18th), Ebonstone Manor will be the setting for a battle of epic proportions. Bring your siegery miniatures and take on some of Elanthia's fashionable elite in Fashion Wars!

    We're not finished yet! The main event of the week will be a Fashion Showcase on the afternoon of Feastday, the 19th day of Phoenatos (August 19th) in the Ebonstone Manor Ballroom, where everyone will have the opportunity to show off their creative talents on the catwalk. The choice of themes for this year's Fashion Week are Shabby Chic, Metallic Mastery, Sugar and Spice, and Woodland Walks. Each entry will be judged according to how well it's presented on the runway and the interpretation of the chosen theme for the coveted "Chalat Award". Sign-up sheets will be available on the day so come dressed ready and be prepared to put your best foot forward.

    Restday, the 20th day of Phoenatos (August 20th) will see the festivities draw to a close but not before the presentation and auction of the Pantheon Collection: a unique collection of Arkati-themed outfits in hallowed surroundings. Interested parties should gather in Solhaven's Liabo Plaza where they will spend the afternoon being escorted to secret locations around the town. Later that evening, Elanthian Elegance will be hosting a cocktail party in the elegant setting of Lily Manor's Museum of Fashion History to review the week's events, reminisce about the runway scene, and discuss ideas for next season's programme.
