Today, at 12 PM SLT, Models’ Question Time II took place in the conferencing booth at the Ewing Fashion District at Isola D’ Ischia. Several people were in attendance from all walks of the fashion industry – models, agents, and lovers of fashion alike. Although originally, the intention was to use Skype, technical difficulties dictated otherwise and the chat was moved to in-game voice chat. (Future Models’ Question Times will be held in voice chat).

 

Several questions were addressed by agency owner Una Ewing and fashion writer Selonna Torok, including the following:

  • Is there life as a model after being an escort;
  • Model shape characteristics;
  • Having quality skins and hair;
  • Importance of having a passion for fashion and modelling;
  • Gender issues – the requirement for male models;
  • AO v. Walk Replacer;
  • Marketing; and
  • Finances

The event went well and was highly informative for all participants. Models’ Question Time III will be held at 12 PM SLT on November 5, 2007, once again in the conferencing booth at the Ewing Fashion District at Isola D’ Ischia.

To register for the event, leave a comment on this post. Please ensure that you have working speakers and/or headphones. As always, the event is free. And bring your questions – we’ll see you there!

On October 28, 2007, a fashion-forward Halloween party took place at MT-D in the Glam World sim – home of, most notably, Minnu Model Skins. Minnu Palen herself was in attendance, as well as the owner of MT-D, Dusk Jewell, Thora Charron (also of Minnu Model Skins), Onyx LeShelle and Beauvoir Rousselot of Maitreya, and Suzi Phlox and LeeZu Baxter of LeeZu Baxter Designs. Several Minnu models were also present, as well as other fashionable party-goers each letting out their inner Halloween spirit.

Costumes ranged from the eerie walking undead to heavenly angels. A best costume contest was held, crowning Gal Giha as a winner, receiving 5000L$ as a reward. She wore an amazing red and black creation, looking gorgeous with a new twist on the classic witch. Moisie Swindlehurst was runner up as Zombie Liza Minelli, winning a pack of Maitreya animations.

Also announced at the party is the new alliance between Minnu Model Skins and Maitreya. This partnership promises to be exciting, bringing new and interesting creations to the fashion world. You will find signs of this new team taking place in the weeks to come – and it surely will be can’t-miss event.

 I was recently sent me a number of new items from Redgrave’s new releases and one item in particular stood out immediately – the sculpty boots. I totally dreamy. The colour I got was brown, which is a deep velvety chocolate brown, but it comes in three other colours – copper, black and red. In fact I love the look and fit so much that I made to Redgrave to pick up another pair in a different colour. The boots come in two fits – medium and slim and the detail on them is superb  – it fits so well that I can almost feel the comfort of the lining around my legs and the cushioning on the soles of my feet. I must say that my legs have lever looked so good. At a meer L$ 450 the boots are a snap. Other items to look out for are the cute pumps.
