Jade Glas - Vintage Glamour
This avatar reminded me so much of those glamorous ladies of the 1940's, Frances Farmer, Bette Davis the list goes on and on. I wanted to share her unique vintage look with you. We took 2 sets of photos firstly the black which includes a wonderful matching cloak and fur hat and then the white which focus on her satin ivory dress.

As per normal I asked Jade about her look...

I love SL Fashion because there are no limits on what you can do, or try, to have a new look every day in SL. In SL you can express your mood through your clothes and accessories....the options are limitless. No matter what you are looking for; there is a vendor in SL that has just what you are looking for, especially vintage, glamorous evening gowns. I love the fact that I can wear evening gowns, I have many from the big fashion houses to small little designers and they are all beautiful. Gowns that I would never have the opportunity to wear in RL.. So I wear them here instead.

Lexi Roxan

Lexi Roxan Designs

I met Lexi at the Graduation on Wednesday last and was taken by the beautiful face of her avatar and I actually asked her if she would like to be on the Fashionista Focus series, when she told me she was actually a designer in SL.. Blushes.. was I embarrassed, but she was so nice and so we decided to to do a blog on her designs instead.

Please tell a little about yourself and how you got involved with second life's fashion industry?

From the time I was a little girl I've drawn pictures of girls in beautiful dresses. I can still see my first picture of that princess in her pink dress I drew at the age of 5. My mother told me I was a talented artist but I didn't really think anything of my skills. In fact, my last art class was at the age of 12. Then I came here to sl, a world of fashion and beauty. And.. a need to design grew inside me so much so that after making my first tshirt I was completely hooked. I shared my creations with my friends who encouraged me to open a store. And I must say, without these supportive people in my life I know I would have never made it this far.



Where do you get your inspiration for your designs?
Where don't I get my inspirations? I could see a beautiful fish and think wow I could use those colors in a gown. I am forever looking a pictures of designs, watching what people wear, and scribbling pictures on scraps of paper, dreaming them when I am asleep.... My favorite way I am inspired is to ask my friends about their dream gown and try to create it for them.

There is some controversy regarding dollarbies and freebies, do you think it is beneficial or detrimental to the second life economy.?
Well.. I give away a lot of items all the time. I don't know if it is hurting the sl economy but I feel that if we give to others we are likely to be rewarded. I would hope that people would see an example of my work and long to have more and therefore, buy , buy, buy!


Flexi sculpties are have a incredible difference to how clothes are made in second life, how did you find this transition?
Laughs.. I'm too young to know the difference.

You have many beautiful clothes in your store, which is your personal favourite?
Well.. my personal favorite is my dress called Crystal Glam. And it's my favorite as it is the one I am currently working on today. Every design is my favorite when I'm creating it. I put a lot of love into my work.

How long on average from concept to store do your designs take you and which medium are you using? oh... sometimes hours.. sometimes days. I run my work by many people from my models, my shoe and jewel associates.. and of course, my friends.

Which of your designs is the best seller and do you know why it is so popular?
My best seller would have to be my Distraction gown. I've had people say they saw it on the dance floor and loved it's flow. It's just a very pretty dress that you can't help but love.


Of the other designers in second life who do you admire?
This is not a dress designer but I have to say, Whisper Gravois. She designs such intricate works of art that we call jewelry. I am constantly amazed by her skill.

Check Lexi Roxan's profile for her shop location.

Liane Maertens

Whilst wandering the grid and hanging out at the most exclusive shops and events.. only for professional reasons of course... smiles.. I often come across the most well dressed avatars.
This lovely avatar was in the crowd at the Model Graduation on Wednesday and so I decided to start this new series with her.. Introducing the very stylish Liane Maertens.




I asked Liane why she was so fashionable and here is her answer in her own words and being Brazilian in RL.. she also kindly translated into Portuguese for us.

I came to Secondlife to become a model and each day I love more what I do, I love modeling and I learned a lot about modeling with Secondlife, this even changed the way I dress in real life. I just hope to continue doing what i do for many years still !

Eu vim para o secondlife para ser modelo e cada dia que passa amo mais o que faço, adoro moda e aprendi muito sobre moda com o secondlife, isso mudou até o jeito de como me visto na real life. Espero poder continuar fazendo isso por muitos anos!



skin: *League* Taylor Sunkiss
bangles: {CS} Glam bangle (Orange)
skirt: Miamai_Amanda_MayGroup Gift
top: Miamai_Anee Bronze Upper
shoes:*Kookie* Kat platform
hair: Miamai_Jojo LieBlack

I am sure you agree that Liane has a definate 'je ne sais quoi' and has earned her spotlight as our Fashionista Focus this week.

superELITE Fashion Academy

Modeling Basic class Graduation Fashion Show




Today was one of superELITE Fashion Academy most fun events the graduation catwalk, the models strut their stuff in casual wear, intimates, swimwear and formal evening wear.


Graduating today were the 5 of the best quality avatars I have seen in a long time, 4 ladies and 1 Gentlemen. We will be having a closer look at each of them on the blog at a later date.. but just to whet your appetite I have the super photographs of today's event to share with you.



The show lasted in total about 25-30 minutes and was very well attended as you can see from the photographs. Amber Quinzet and Mangoisio Lohner hosted the show today and Amber gave a full rundown of each avatar's clothing, accessories and jewelry so it was very informative and I personally saw quite a few things I liked not only on the catwalk but also on the fashionistas watching the show ( I *IM* ed a couple of them) and managed to meet a great designer I didn't know at the same time , more about her soon teaser!!!!!




Beautiful Gowns at the end of the show, so many dresses.. so few Lindens.. sighs, I would have bought Guka Sparta's outfit too, he looked damn classy,.. if I thought it would have looked good on me.



If you are interested in viewing the next show it is scheduled for Saturday May 29th at

It got quite complex with all the models walking out within seconds of each other and then walking back changing lanes and never once bumping into each other.

So if you are interested in learning how to prowl the catwalk with your model strut, contact Rena Mascot.

aDiva Couture - AnneJoy Paine

AnneJoy Paine, Designer for aDiva Couture


AnneJoy Paine of aDiva Couture will be collaborating with superELITE during our next graduation of Models from the Academy, I am sure you are familiar with her beautiful well draw clothes, and so I thought it would be interesting for us to look a little behind the avatar..


Please tell us a little about yourself and how you got involved with Second Life's fashion industry?
Hmm.. I am a RN in Real Life. handling emergencies in a hospital. If I have some free time , I use to sketch with my graphic tablet. I came to SL through a show on TV here in Germany and thought, this is what I always wanted, all my life I was interested in designing. So after being here two weeks, I simply started ;)

Where do you get your inspiration for your designs?
Mostly from the street, from TV . From self sewed rl designs for myself

There is some controversy regarding dollarbies and freebies, do you think it is beneficial or detrimental to the second life economy.?
hmmm.. very difficult to say, i often do specials and give out many things for free, its just that i love the fun of designing and creating. I am sure, there are many in SL who cannot afford to spend RL money. Through my RL job I am not really dependant on earning much money here. So this is for me more fun, but I think designers, who have to live from what they earn here, have sometimes a hard time through all those freebies and dollarbies.

Flexi sculpties are have a incredible difference to how clothes are made in second life, how did you find this transisiton?
I am ok with , currently I am experiencing with Sculpties more and more and wish that one day we have the chance to get flexible sculpties for a much better look.


How long on average from concept to store do your designs take you and which medium are you using?
Using Photoshop and gimp, Blender and Sculptypaint. I love to work with many mediums, best of all is my wacom. I love love love it ;) Hmm.. and I cannot say, sometimes, if textures are very high detailed and with lots of nice pattern, they take me days, cause all is handsketched, other things are much quicker. So .. depending on my time, and how busy my RL and SL is ;)

Which of your designs is the best seller and do you know why it is so popular?
One of my best sellers is Lush, Beyonce, Camille High Waist, Madeleine Cold Shoulder , Hot Chica. I think its the variety. From romance to sexy, classy to hot. There are many styles in my shop, which I think are all great. For me personally I could not say which one I love most. I only design what I like, so I love them all



Of the other designers in second life who do you admire?
Hmm.. To be honest, I rarely look around. I like free minds, same on bloggers who are free and open minded, and independent. That's what i love for me, and I love people who use their own head to make up their minds. So I could not say that I admire one here in SL. But there are for sure many , lots of good designers on SL ;)


and just to remind you aDiva Couture will also be showcasing their lovely apparel on superElite Graduating Models, more information will be posted on that exciting event when all the details are finalized.

Petit Jardin and Salvador Dali Exploding Clock

Continuing the journey around the SuperELITE sim and searching out the wonderful stores Deeta has opted for a dress from MEB.  She was not disappointed as the clothes and accessories are amazing.  Deeta choose the gorgeous outfit Petit Jardin which includes the belt and boots. The colours of the outfit are striking and daring and are just perfect for a bright Spring Day.

Bierno opted for a very well designed waistcoat from Lady Thera.  This is called Salvador Dali - Exploding Clock and has the most intricate texture and design. Lady Thera does designs for both men and women and her clothes and textures are influenced by some of the most beautiful paintings and works of art.
