2013 has been a big year for SHIKI so far. Not only did they finish 2012 off with a unique and never done before style of collaborating with a real life artist's work, which has spun SL designers into similar trends thereafter, they have also gone deeper and more intricate with every concept along the way. 

2013 Spring Summer Collection for SHIKI continues to prove SHIKI's place among the fashion industry, bolstering a proper, cohesive and extensive concept and the classic and chic look that could easily step out onto real life runways. 

SHIKI was recently invited to take part in an exclusive interview on live Japanese TV in Second Life. The show was recorded live in Japanese to a fashion-conscious audience and was hosted by Mato Jetcity and the wonderful guest hostess Clione Clary. A big thank you goes out to the staff including the wonderful models of Diona Fashion Agency.

Urban Symmetry Collection

I love creating patterns out of random things. I seem to be able to find beauty in simple things all around me. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite textures that I created with my design partner Vinn Wong. It was his idea that we create textures out of things unappreciated. So one day, we went for a long walk with camera in hand, taking pictures of random things. I tried really hard to find things that were unappreciated and I found myself drawn to things such as soda cans, wire fences and dead leaves. I felt like I was a big failure because I felt unoriginal and uninspired. With Vinn's help, we came up with a nice collection of textures. This is how the latest collection Urban Symmetry was born.

Here are two outfits created from these new textures.

  City Stride Mesh Outfit

We created textures out of things we found on the street. These were inspired by soda pop cans and barbed wire fences. Here are the textures that became the base of the outfits shown above. 

I also created some real life products for my store on zazzle. Please check them out if you have time. The picture below shows one of my real life products using the texture you see above.

 I love how I can incorporate my designs into so many different things. I loved working on this collection and a big thank you goes out to Vinn Wong for inspiring me in the first place.
