Overall Winner - Katherine Comet wearing 'Patty'

The overall winner of the CCD Reflecting Jewelry photo competition is Katherine Comet.  With a competition running over 3 months, there was an enormous selection of stunning photographs to enjoy and CCD received over 65 entries in total.  Of these entries, December’s photograph of Katherine Comet wearing Patty truly impressed, combining not only great technique and an excellent portrayal of CCD jewelry but also a real artistic flare and a great sense of elegance and beauty.

CCD Fashion Show (Caithlin Carter wearing 'Vanity' & Models)

Despite some nerve-wracking last-minute problems with my Sim, the recent CCD Grand Reopening and Fashion Show opened on time and was a real success.  I wanted to thank all of you who found the time to come along and watch the CCD models wearing some of my latest Reflective Jewelry and Prim Nails + Ring.  I’m sure you will agree that the CCD models who performed at the Fashion Show did an amazing job and I’m really proud to have such a great team working with me at Caithlin Carter Designs.  I made my own debut on the catwalk at this event wearing the exclusive limited edition ‘Vanity’ Jewelry set and I really enjoyed this totally new experience and the thrill of hosting what was a really exciting event for me.

I would like to thank the CCD models who took part in the show – Adriana Ellisson, Amberlea Nitely, Arianah Markova, Isabella Wikifoo, Janet Nitely & Mailen Karu – and, of course, Kat Svenska and Naiya Kazyanenko for organising things so beautifully.
