One of the best Second Life furniture stores is opening its new mainstore on Friday, August 22nd !

The store, formerly known as CORN, is called INSTINCT and the designers will be featured in the upcoming ALTAMODA issue.

I had the chance to meet Devon Fischer and Cornelius Sloat and to ask them about their work and how they live in Second Life. I don’t want to reveal all the details here but I totally agree to what they said. You truly can expect “a new revolution in SL furniture”!

Check out the beautiful and realistic designs and read the next ALTAMODA issue to get to know more about their work!

Here is a teaser (Click to enlarge! No, it’s not a real life picture and there was absolutely no editing done in Photoshop!)

Visit the new mainstore on Friday and see it with your own eyes.

The fashionable Ischia island was the location for ALTAMODA magazine’s 1st quarter party on June 3rd, to celebrate the success of the publication. The guests who defied the lag and made an appearance were too many to count. And they were in for a treat, enjoying 4 full hours of beauty, glamour and entertainment.

The event kicked off with an enchanting live piano performance by Enniv Zarf (RL artist Paul Kwo). Una Ewing then called everyone outside, where not one but three fashion shows took place! The first ever pose show, featuring realistic static and animated poses by Stella Furkel’s ** Fashion Model Works**, followed by a showcase of beautifully made accessories by Kuranosuke Kamachi of DeLa, and concluding with a collection of breathtaking underwear designed by Mariska Simons, representing Alphamale & Blacklace . Goody bags were handed out by sponsors Kira Paderborn of Shapes by Kira, Adam Soler of Lookr designs and Mariska Simons of Blacklace. The guests moved by the agency’s pool for the after party and DJ Azufr3 Catteneo had them dancing in an instant with his fabulous tunes.

The Ewing Fashion Agency would like to thank everyone who came and all the magazine readers for supporting us. You have helped make ALTAMODA what it is – thank you!
