August 2009


Aleida Rhode is the creative force behind *Aleida* formally known as Fashion Nomads.  She is an accomplished model, photographer and now designer, opening her first store in March 2009.  I met up with Aleida at her store and what a delightful lady.  I was absolutely thrilled when gave me a sneak peek of several of her designs for Modavia Fashion Week.  All I can tell you is, they are fantastic!  You can see Aleida’s  wonderful new designs September 15th at 3:00pm SLT during Modavia Fashion Week.  You do not want to miss it!

Aleida Jinja top & konge pants

Here I am wearing Jinja II Flower Top in nougat and Konge pants in creme paired with Kampala stilettos in cocoa.  Notice the delicate floral on the fabric, so feminine.  The top comes with all layers and can be worn tucked as well.  The Konge pants have two options, loose fit and tight fit and include prim cuffs accentuated with tiny buttons.

Hello everyone.  Once a month, we will talk to one of our past graduates to catch up with them and see how are they are doing since graduating from EFA and show you their graduation photo and how they look today.

This month, I had the pleasure of talking with Sabine Blackburn.  What an incredible person!  She was so kind and gave me tons of tips and advice.  She is one busy lady.  Sabine is currently a model with Glance International Agency, Timeless Agency, Starlight Events, Berlin Models, Maniera Models, Elegance International Models Agency, DejaVu Modeling Agency, Beauté Mode Agency, Mannequin Couture Agency (Beauty Avatar), Einstein Model, Opium Fashion Agency, Ewing Fashion Agency and a finalist in the Miss Virtual World competition.

When did you graduate from EFA?

Sabine: Oh I won a picture contest at angel dressous in march and then I won like some discount on an EFA scholarship at this contest.  So I thought well try it.

Were you modeling before attending EFA?

Sabine: Yes, I didn’t need the training but you can always learn something new.  I mean I don’t want to sound arrogant but I was already modeling a lot then and I learned some things at the EFA school.  It was at 5pm and that is 2am for me.  That was a bit hard.  It was nice to meet new people too.  I like to do stylings and that was fun.

What inspired you to be a model?

Sabine: Well, the first contact I had with the modeling business is when I saw an ad for Miss Virtual World last year.  I tried that and saw I had a lot to learn and I love fashion.  I even love it more in rl now too.  I enter a lot of competitions and I win some fortunately.

Since graduating, has your training at Ewing helped you?

Sabine: Yes of course, I use what I learned there and didn’t know before.
