Since I was a very young girl I have always loved the elegance of vintage clothing. Neferia Abel, owner and designer of Ivalde Designs has been bringing that elegance into Second Life for awhile now. Neferia has truly set the bar high with the great attention to detail, lush beautiful textures of clothing & don’t get me started on the delicious skins. Knowing the quality of her work I got really excited when I found out through EFA’s Tiffany Dragonash that Neferia had decided to expand and work on new more modern designs perfect for every woman with a totally new brand, “L’Abel. ” Slipping on these new masterpieces I am in awe! They were everything I imagined and more, sexy, sophisticated, and just simple knock down beautiful. I got to chat with Neferia and she is a sweet person and I am so happy to have met her.
Temperance Moonites: What’s in store for L’Abel and is there anything exciting coming up you would like us to know about?
Neferia Abel: I have a few exciting projects in the works! I will be redesigning the store next week, giving it a more updated, fresh appearance. I’m also going to start designing more contemporary clothing, giving as much attention to design there as I do to my other lines.
TM: That sounds pretty exciting! One thing I always love to find out from designers is what got you into fashion design in second life? What is your story?
NA: My RL/SL partner Brumm encouraged me to sign up for Second Life so I could talk to him while he was on a late shift. I have a graphic arts background, have always loved fashion, so when he told me I could make clothes, well, I haven’t stopped, and see no end in sight!
