Fashion for Life is the fashion arm of the Relay for Life movement in Second Life supporting the American Cancer Society, the formerly known as RFL Clothing Fair, but now directly supported by ACS. This year the fair includes not only clothing designers but also skins, eyes, tattoos, hair, shoes and much more... and since its directly supported by SL and the organization is entirely volunteer driven, 100% of the funds raised are presented as a charitable donation to ACS from the residents of Second Life.
This year the fair is held along 9 different sims, each of them sponsored by a different SL brand or company and built following this year’s theme “Beyond Black and White,” embodying the spirit of cancer survivors everywhere as they find hope rising out of the dark diagnosis of cancer, by some of the best architects in Second Life.
Avedon, sponsored by Bliss Couture and built by Cierra Anatine.
Ansel Adams, sponsored by Designing Nicky Ree and built by Frederick Lancaster.

Regarding designers,you can view a list of the participants in Fashion for Life by sim here, but of course I recommend you to visit each and every single sim and check out for the many beautiful creations they have designed following the "beyond black and white " theme to benefit Relay For Life.
Sadly I lack the skills to design anything in SL, the only way I can participate is promoting all the wonderful creations available at the fair, therefore, for the next few days I will be showcasing here some of those items raising money to benefit the American Cancer Society, it's your turn to go shopping!
