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.


RFyre - The Snow Queen
RFyre – The Snow Queen

 “I can give her no greater power than she has already,” said the woman; “don’t you see how strong that is? How men and animals are obliged to serve her, and how well she has got through the world, barefooted as she is. She cannot receive any power from me greater than she now has, which consists in her own purity and innocence of heart. If she cannot herself obtain access to the Snow Queen, and remove the glass fragments from little Kay, we can do nothing to help her……” ~Hans Christen Anderson, The Snow Queen

House of RFyre‘s newest release is The Snow Queen, designed by Raven Pennyfeather.  Befittingly, once you put this dress on, you can’t help but feel like a queen in a fairytale.  Between the rich textures and the attention to details, your sure to have people (along with a few furries, no doubt) worshipping you!  The Snow Queen is a stunning ice-blue gown accented throughout with white and silver.  A richly detailed, embroided bodice  is highlighted by a  whimsical, bejeweled collar with a feather mini-cape.  The billowing skirt  encircles the wearer — adding that whimsical charm that you would expect from nothing less than a queen!  Perfect for the season, as well as the holiday, you too can have people bowing at your feet.  You can purchase this dress at House of RFyreYou can also keep up to date on House of RFyre’s lastest fashions on the internet  — House of RFyre website.


Normally this is where I type something thought provoking about *FDL*’s fall collection, however, words can’t do justice by the video that the designer, Sanders Beaumont, created for his newest designs.  It’s simply breathtaking!  You can purchase the beautifully crafted clothing highlighted in the video at *FDL* & Wardrobe Outfitters.  Without further adieu…..

Here at the Ewing Fashion Agency we look forward to each Friday’s Happy Hour in the ~*Ewing Events VIP Guest List*~. Each week is a treat with some of the hottest designers around getting us excited about their work. Claim your spot in the group anytime; enrollment is currently open. We recently heard from Lyra Muse of Jaywalk.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the new things going on down at Jaywalk now is the time to do it. Coming back from a recent break, Lyra is beginning some major expansion. Now, the shoes we have loved from Jaywalk aren’t all we can find there! Clothing and accessories are available, and from what Lyra tells me, more are on the way!

With more than 5 years dabbling in designing and building, Lyra is no new player to the SL fashion scene. She spent 3 years learning and then took her talents to Last Call, where she officially began designing. Now she has a place of her own in Jaywalk and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Talking to Lyra you learn she is humble and thankful for the opportunities SL has afforded her. She is open and curious, always looking for new things to design. With the self-proclaimed “attention span of a gnat”, she focuses her search for inspiration in those things that catch her attention and hold it for more than a moment. Among the top of her list of inspiriting arenas are real life fashion, real life art, and her “weird dreams”.
