So, how did I do it?
Actually I’m no designer, much less a clothes designer. What I did was to copy some designs from La Redoute’s online website. This is a French catalog shop, selling their clothes all over Europe. One thing I found out is that they don’t have only models wearing clothes – no, they sometimes have a front picture of the clothes themselves in front of a neutral background.
What I did was to get those images (they have reasonable quality), put them into Photoshop and copy them over the clothes templates you get from Linden’s site. In many cases that’s all I did! Except for some tinkering – stretching and slight distortions – and retouching (to make sure I got the bleed zones right), there is not much else to do!
As a matter of fact, the results can be quite impressive, as you get real-looking textures from this method. In other cases the results are not so spectacular.
Of course, the choice of the clothes you’re wearing also helps a lot 🙂 🙂 🙂 This particular outfit comes from my own line of ideas for “casual wear” – nothing too fancy, but also not too out-of-style. The French catalog of La Redoute has some lines exactly in that style (yes, they’ve got a few clothes for going to parties and nightclubs!).
You can grab a copy of this outfit either by getting in touch with me or with Dee McLean. Dee is famous in SL for offering all kinds of things and she generously carries all my clothes to give them away!
