Mix is a HUD based monthly event that starts on the 1st of each month and features up to 100 of SL’s best brands. Each month designers are to put out items in their mainstores which fall into one of the following categories, “New, Sale or Exclusive.” I think this is a wonderful idea as shoppers won’t have to deal with major lag trying to get into one location and it also gives us an opportunity to check out the mainstores of creators involved in this event, something that doesn’t happen very often these days. The brains behind this brilliant event is none other than Octagons Yazimoto, who is co-owner of The Arcade and Collabor88.
The purpose of the HUD for this event is to get you to your desired destination and let you know which brands are offering sales, exclusives or new releases. You do not need the HUD to actually shop this event. The HUD can be picked up from The Mix Update Group, it is sent out on the 1st and 15th of each month. It can also be picked up FREE from the Mix marketplace store.
If you’re looking for more details about this event, you can check out their User Guide or their FAQ page. If you are a designer interested in participating in this event, they also have a Designer Application on their site.
I’m wearing the Summer LookBook from Maxi Gossamer that will be available for this event starting July 1st. Maxi’s LookBook consists of a selection of some of her summer favorites. The Lookbook will be heavily discounted for the month. You can take the SLurl to the Maxi Gossamer mainstore starting July 1st and look for the Mix Sign to find the discounted Summer LookBook collection.
