Diamond'z & Platinum'z Holiday Pageant

Fashion Parties

ITS A PARTY ITS A PARTY ITS A PARTAY!!! There's always a reason to throw a party, whether its a birthday bash or a house warming. Parties are a great way to gather large groups at the same time. Parties are an awesome advertising and marketing tool. A jeweler throws jewelry parties to auction their product off. A tattoo artist throws tattoo parties where you can get a tattoo on the spot. A distiller throws a wine tasting, and a fashionista throws fashion shows. A great business person should know how to throw a successful party, which in the long run will promote growth. With good music and a great product and anyone can do it.

In the fashion business, being a designer isn't easy. The whole purpose of design and modeling is so that people can enjoy and purchase your work. This is why parties and shows are the best option for advertisement. First, you want to introduce your line to the world. You can do this by throwing a "Welcome to the Scene" Fashion Gala. Gala's are usually a formal event. You start by gathering your marketing resources. Our options are limitless on home so I'd recommend using real life social networking. Once you have this done you can start planning your function.  Here's the order you should follow. Choose a theme, design the outfits, pick your models. Next, pick a location, how you want it decorated, find a host, a DJ, and music style.  Finally, pick a dress code for the guests, a time to start and end, times where models should change, and times the host should speak.

Lastly, but the most importantly, is a flyer or commercial for advertising your event. During this event you want to make sure your website, upcoming events and contact info is displayed in the chat log. This will ensure you get a few people to attend your up and coming events and see what else your group is up to. You have to keep your audience happy. Good music, laughter, and great product will seal the deal.

Galas are only the beginning. Every designer/model/fashionista must throw fashion shows to continuously market their line. A fashion show is just an organized party. You're just adding extra to it.. Throwing a successful fashion show is by far one of the most challenging obstacles faced in the fashion business. They display anticipated clothing, hairstyles, and make up lines.  Your line has to meet the public's standards as disappointing them could do major damage to your image. 

Okay, so here is the proper way to plan a fashion show. First, you have to design outfits that give off that "WOW" effect. Pick your models, pick a location, a runway style, decorations, a DJ, music style, time of event, and flyer. The runway is your centerpiece. You have to make sure your walk routine is practiced perfectly. The music plays a large roll in a show as well. Great music will not only keep the guests entertained, but will give the models a sense of confidence. They will tear down the runway and their confidence will give off a vibe that the audience can feel. In the  future, more people will enjoy watching your shows and they'll even tell their friends. Word of mouth is your best friend.

Now, who said partying too much was a bad thing? When it comes to running a business, parties are a power tool. Plus, you get to look good while keeping your product fresh. An organized business is always a better business.

According to Guys *Premier*

So there's no question that the minds of men and women work completely different.  We dress ourselves usually in hopes to attract people towards us, always looking for a well deserved compliment when we hit the streets of PS Home in our planned ensembles.  Who are we trying to impress?  Ourselves?  Maybe a member of the opposite sex?  Well, in this brand new article to Risque Fashion Magazine, I will be going around PS Home snapping shots of different outfits.  Let's see exactly how successful these outfits work when they are critiqued "According to Guys".

Warning:  These randomly chosen men were instructed NOT to hold back on their opinions.  Any negative remarks are not the opinions of Risque Fashion Magazine or myself as every picture I put into this article is a fashion I am a fan of.

"This outfit is cute.  It looks nice for a girls night out or a date with a special one.  I like the colors, they go good together.  The shoes are nice and the skirt is nice, it brightens up the outfit."-Eric

"The outfit looks great, I especially love the colors."-David

"I don't like this look, I'm not into goth looks.  It's not attractive, it looks incorrect.  I wouldn't even make myself look like this.  I think it's a disgrace...wanna be vampire."-Nick

"O love the fit, it's got sexy written all on it.  It's a little plain, just a LITTLE plain, but I like it.  I'm a dude and I see skin so of course I'm going to like it.  lol ;)  I think it needs a little bit more flavor to it, I don't know, maybe a hat."-Corey

"That outfit's cool if you're going for a Christmas look."-Prince

"It's simple and plain provocative anime."-Nashaun

"In Home fashion it looks old, but it can still be pulled off.  Especially if a noob is looking at the outfit"-Trip

"I really like it.  Well, I love the way it stands out and the style of how the outfit looks.  It's cute"-Jog

"Not really feeling the top and bottom together.  I don't feel they go together so well.  Maybe it's the shades of pink being different, or the styles. The hair was ok."-Chris

"It's not bad, but I'm not a big fan of the super high boots.  The boots gives it that 'Guess what I do behind dumpsters' look."-Justin

If you would like to have your outfit featured in Risque Fashion Magazine please message Misz_Evie on Playstation Network.

Special Feature Interview: ENJ7

Every so often, we get to meet somebody who has done something truly extraordinary.  I browse PS Home looking for new talent in just about any category.  Rare is the moment when it actually involves fashion.  In one of my many visits to the bowling alley, I came across a girl who was wearing the final prize jacket and sneakers to the Clusterpuck game on PS Home.  As fate would have it, the night before, I was browsing for various prizes in search of rare clothing.  I remember the jacket and sneakers vividly as I thought to myself, "Those look IMPOSSIBLE to get!"  So, seeing a girl wearing the items the very next day also felt extremely rare and exciting!

On my approach, she was very courteous on answering my questions of her newly earned record.  It also turns out that not only is she a gamer girl, shes very much into fashion as well!  How delightful!  My Vice-President of Risque Modeling Agency, DominionAtrix87, quickly suggested a special interview with ENJ7 with our magazine.  I now present to you, gamer girl and fashionista...


ENJ7 in the Clusterpuck Reward Items: Jacket and Sneakers for Taking #1 on Leader Boards

Evie: Greetings ENJ7!

ENJ7: Heyyy!

Evie: Today were here interviewing you for quite the feat!  You've made it tothe #1 spot on the Clusterpuck Leader Board.  Can u tell us what motivated u to do this?

ENJ7: For this jacket definitely, but these shoes! Seriously. And the #1 Spot!  I was soo moved by fashion that I stopped at nothing until I got those rewards!  (Jacket and Sneakers)  

One of ENJ7's very fashionable creations.

Evie: Very nice!  Is gaming and fashion both equally important to you, or does one override the other?

ENJ7: Gaming because I like to be #1, and because fashion because I like to look good! One doesn't really override the other.

Evie: Its actually amazing to find somebody like you on home.  I know winning the jacket and the sneakers is what initially drew me to you, but i had no idea that you were also such a fashionista as well! Can you tell us what makes up ENJ7.

ENJ7: Sometimes you just have to go where nobody else is going.  Go with the flow, be bold, mix it up a little.  Don't be afraid to take new routes.

Homegirl Style!  Any relation to Gangnam?

Evie: So while you were posing for pictures with me I heard about your Home-Girl style. I found that interesting.  What other style names have you coined?

ENJ7: I'm gonna go with Home-Girl, Mish-Mash and Sophistoratchet.  Sophisticated and ratchet all at the same time!  I believe if you have fashion in your heart, you can mash anything together and still look fly.  With a fashion sense in mind that

Evie: I love that!  lol  So how long did it take you to get to the #1 spot

ENJ7: Realistically, I think about 3 days.

Interview session: misz_evie and ENJ7

Evie: Wow, not bad considering the level of difficulty for the awesome rewards.  Is there anything else you're involved in on PS Home?

ENJ7: You name it, I've done it.

Evie: Cool, well seeing as though you're a fashionista, as well as a gamer is so great. We even have some of your styles for our audience to see here.  How long have you been making your own designs with clothing on home?

ENJ7: Since I got my account back in 2010.

Evie: Very nice!  Do you have any shout outs for anybody out there reading this?

ENJ7: I'd like to shout out to all of my friends out there on Playstation including you!

Evie: Well thank you for stopping by Risque Fashion Magazine!  It was a pleasure to have you.

ENJ7: It was a pleasure being here!

To some it's for the top score.  To some it's for the clothes.  For ENJ7, it's both.  It was amazing to have met her, and her prize jacket that I just want to steal from her avatar and run off into the night with.  I've truly met a beautiful person and an inspiration for the women's community.  Risque Fashion Magazine would like to say...

(Now who wants to hold her while I take the jacket?)
