IOL Islamic Fashion Show in Second Life

CAIRO — Amidst dazzling lights and fireworks, organized on Sunday, September 21, the first ever Arabic and Islamic attire fashion show in the virtual world of Second Life (SL). “We set out to do something completely different from anything that has been done before,” said Walid Wahba, the main event organizer. “We wanted the visitors to get a complete taste of a magical Arabian night.”

The show, which lasted more than 2 hours, attracted more than 70 visitors from different nationalities. Five different designers showed their collections of more than 50 different designs of Arabic and Islamic clothes, ranging from Moroccan to Egyptian to Turkish. The visitors were all impressed with the quality and diversity of the designs. Read more at
