Quoted from the organizers: "'A Dream Within...' is a charity event for Crohn's and Colitis UK (info: http://www.crohnsandcolitis.org.uk/) and is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe."
I also went to the web to pull a similar link for those in the United States, http://www.ccfa.org/
Quoted from the original note card: "Each designer was assigned to a different verse/part of one of Poe's poems and was asked to interpret it into a creation, a visual composition of theirs. Why Poe? I just simply find E. A. Poe very inspiring. There is no other like him. :)"
You will find the event at Azure Island, just outside Finesmith's main store. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Azure%20Island/128/100/7 , beginning with a small fashion show November 9 then running for the week.
The incredible gown I'm wearing comes inspired from a snippet of Poe:
There pass'd, as a shroud,
A fleecy cloud,
And I turned away to thee,
Proud Evening Star,
In thy glory afar,
And dearer thy beam shall be;
For joy to my heart
Is the proud part
Thou bearest in Heaven at night,
And more I admire
Thy distant fire,
Than that colder, lowly light.
Thank you to Ms. Bodza Blackadder, designer for *Living Imagination* who created this gown and allowed me to share the event here. The poem shared here is a portion of the poem Evening Star by Edgar Allan Poe.
