Una Ewing and Scarlett Niven Talk Fashion


This week’s Models’ Question Time was held December 04, at 12:30 PM SL time. For this session, MQT VI, we were delighted to have Scarlett Niven sharing her experiences with us. Scarlett is the winner of many modeling competitions, is a fashion writer for SecondStyle magazine, manages her own blog, Digital Image, and is a member of the creative team of the FACES Agency.

Scarlett told us of her days as a newbie in love with bling and how she stumbled upon Paper Couture which opened up a whole new world for her in SL. She shared her experiences entering the fashion world from her very first show for Lacoste.

That led to a lively discussion about modeling contests in SL and some of the problems that she and other models have had with the contest rules. Participants agreed that there is a need for better controls and rules for them, particularly when it comes to voting.

Scarlett was also kind enough to share details about her shapes and skins with MQT participants and we talked about how it seems that several models have similar looks and Scarlett shared different ways to customize shapes and skins to create a unique look.

Aradia Dielli, the CEO of FACES  joined her in discussing their company that does image consulting, shows, a magazine and collaboration with other agencies. Look for their latest show coming up this weekend at the opening of the Glam World sim. It’s going to be something SL hasn’t seen yet and promises to be very exciting.

Finally we had a brief discussion about ways to market yourself as a model and talked about the potential of taking a second life modeling career into first life fashion industry.

See you at next week’s Models’ Question Time.
