And then there’s Jare

AU V Fashion

Jare Capalini is the creator-designer of AU V, a relatively new line of haute couture.   Last fall, I stumbled upon a handful of Jare’s creations in what was, at that time, his very small shop.  But since that time, Shenlei Flasheart and I invited Jare into the Shengri La Vintage Marketplace as a designer-in-residence.  We’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Jare for the past six months and watching him grow.  Here’s one of his latest:

Now, six months later and Jare – along with a couple other designers-in-residence — is about to graduate from Shengri La, having worked to refine their vision, and creating broader awareness and interest in their lines.  For Jare, that includes his getting some of his creations shown in Vain, Inc. magazine; his securing a new and larger main shop; and, most recently, landing (through Shenlei’s help) a series of photo shoots with talented fashionista-photographer-model Carabella Babii.

Without getting ahead of things, I understand that there’s also exciting talk of ongoing collaboration between Carabella’s Fashionista sim and Jare’s AU V fashion.  When the specifics can be announced, we’ll be sure to do so and to extend congratulations!  Oh, and Jare is also venturing into hair making!

Meanwhile, how best to describe Jare’s creations?  Truly, they speak for themselves, making a bold statement and suggesting for all to see that what you’re wearing is art as much as it’s fashion.  So instead of my trying to put words to Jare’s creations, let me give you a glimpse of a couple more of his pieces.

 And let me urge you to head over to Jare’s shop in Shengri La (through May 31st) or to his new main shop in Ocean Estate.  If you love making a unique, confident statement, AU V fashion is for you.
