On Saturday, December 1, 2007, a fashion show was held which inagurated the new sim, Montenapoleone.  Simone!, Callie Cline, Shiny Things, and Musashi-Do showed their latest collections.

The sim is a recreation of the real-world Accademia del Lusso and its surrounding neighbourhood on Via Montenapoleone in Milan, Italy. It was built by Shiryu Musashi of Musashi-Do Fashions and Motorsports, who is both a student in the advanced program and also an educator at the school, teaching  a class on SL Creativity.

Musashi Do said “.., this place has been born to amplify as much as possible the potential for creativity of SL applied to education in all fields of fashion.”

The school plans to hold classes in first life about SL as well as holding classes in SL for both their enrolled students in Milan and students in SL. They plan their first SL course is tomorrow (Tuesday the 4th) and that will be a web marketing class taught by a well known journalist and art critic. Other future classes include Color Theory and Textile Theory.

Check out the sim for its aesthetic beauty and facilities and EFA will most likely be hosting some events there in the near future. If you’re interested in hearing about the classes, you may join the Accademia Montenapoleone 5 Update group and if you would lik eto hear about our planned EFA Events, then join the Ewing Events VIP group in-world to get the latest.
