If there's one thing New York's Fashion Week is known for, it's confronting attendees with stark, hard-hitting realities in sharp contrast to the escapist fantasy available elsewhere in our culture. Fortunately, anyone who feels that runway shows hit a little too close to home can experience another degree of separation in Second Life. Tonight at 6 p.m. Pacific/9 p.m. Eastern, you can attend a virtual fashion show for three Second Life "clothing designers," as well as the artisan who created the bot-forms wearing the clothes. (It's like if the real Fashion Week more overtly celebrated the work of fine plastic surgeons.) If you can't "get in" to the show in Second Life, you can still spectate from afar. Please, if anyone attends this thing and there's another flying penis attack, by all means send us the screenshots.
