We got whispered and below is the whisper observations at the memorial of Dani Plassitz. In our opinion, this could likely be due to lag or some rezzing problem and also a lesson learnt to all modeling industries for another day.
Today I attended the Celebration of Life for Dani Plassitz. This was supposed to be a celebration of her life and time in Second Life and the many people she touched in her time. However, from what I witnessed, it was extremely disrespectful to her memory.
The styles and designs I saw on the runway displayed the talent of Ms. Plassitz and her attention to detail. I wish that I could say that the models that were in the ‘show’ had her same attitude toward professionalism and attention to detail. What I saw was sloppy and unprofessional and did NOT do Ms. Plassitz any justice.
Here are a few sample images of the sloppiness that I saw on the runway:
Please understand that there were many other issues with models that I was NOT able to get pictures of. There were some models that did do justice to the clothing, but the show as a whole was in poor taste, in my opinion.
How Ms. Plassitz touched the lives of so many was a testament to her giving nature. However, when you have a model giving a speech that is questionable, that does not honor the memory of Ms. Plassitz.
Here is the quote from the show:
Dani said, ” (name deleted) look on the wall.” Where I replied, “ok Dani how come”., followed by looking on the wall when I saw that the 7th Anniversary dressed was named after me, I remember thinking how does she do it where the style of the gown reeks (name deleted).”
Reeks?! In a memorial? Poor taste in my opinion. This celebration could have been much more professional in it’s attitude and in it’s presentation.
