Valenttina Carfgano is not only an SL top model, but a burgeoning designer as well. Given that she’s intimately familiar with SL haute couture, we can expect good things to come out of her new shop, Frozen Turquoise Valentine, located in the Tellus IV sim


 This is the ‘Valentine,’ a ball gown with  flow and movement that must be seen in action to appreciate. Fine detailing of the bodice and neckline create a beautiful piece that’s made for showing off on the dance floor.

The pack includes a top on the shirt and skirt layer, two styles of prim skirts and glitch pants and sells for L$300. 


 The “Carolina” is an updated business look. The complex construction of the cuffs and collars required a new approach using multiprims to achieve the look Valenttina desired. Its is a winner for those wanting the coporate, but elegantly feminine look.

The pack includes prim skirt, collar and cuffs with glitch pants and a jacket on the shirt and skirt layers and sells for L$400.

The Ewing Fashion Agency Sponsors Sculpture Contest in Second Life

Second Life, November 26, 2007:  On January 15, 2008, the Ewing Fashion Agency (EFA) will be hosting the Ewing Design Awards, the culmination of the Ewing Design Awards competition sponsored by EFA and OnRez.  Winners of the Ewing Design Awards will be receiving a trophy sculpture rewarding their success.  Are you the artist who can create such an award?  If so, we would like to encourage you to enter the EFA competition to create the sculpture for the EFA Design Award.

“As a fashion promotions agency, EFA is incredibly happy to partner with OnRez for the Ewing Design Awards, a celebration of fashion design in Second Life.  Artists in Second Life enliven and enrich our Second Life experience, and the EFA sculpture award merely allows us to celebrate non-fashion related artists as well,” said Connie Molinaro, Promotions and Event Coordinator of Ewing Fashion Agency. 

In order to enter the contest, artists must submit a original, unique piece which has not been previously sold and is free from legal and perpetual obligation.  If selected as the award, the sculpture should be exclusive to EFA, and should not be resold or gifted to anyone else.  EFA requests that structures have a base for labeling, and requests that the artist agree to provide a full permission sculpture to EFA (copy, modify, transfer) to allow EFA to appropriately label the same for the winners. 

In order to enter, artists must send a folder to Elise Alsop in-world with the following:

  • The sculpture:- 
    • one large version for display at the EFA Sculpture Garden and at the designers’ stores,
    • a smaller hand-held version for the award;
    • a miniature version that we can make into a jewelry piece for guests
  • A notecard with your biography and, if available, landmarks to your gallery or blog
  • A full permission photo of the art-piece (copy, modify, transfer)

The deadline for entering the competition is December 8, 2007 at 12PM SLT.  All entered sculptures will be placed at the Ewing Garden at Ischia until at least December 15, 2007.  The non-winning entries will be sent to the artists after that date. 

The winner of the EFA sculpture contest will be chosen by EFA staff and will be announced on on December 11, 2007 at the EFA December Winter Party!
