When I became active in Second Life again last year, I became fascinated by the creations of many clothing designers. Mesh had not yet become such an important part of the fashion landscape, and the creations of Carrie Snowpaw drew me to her store daily. I dreamed of being one of the models in her vendors. Her clothing is incredibly beautiful and feminine, and her pricing, along with her nightly Midnight Mania and free offerings, enables every woman, full-size to petite, to own beautiful gowns and other clothing from the beginning of her Second Life. She has given me styling advice and building assistance. Over time we have become friends, and I have now seen her clothing featured on the BOSL and AVENUE runways, and watched her clothing, now more and more often expressed in mesh, take on new heights of elegance and excellence.
This past weekend Carrie asked me to model one of her newest creations, the Marchen Ribbed Dress, in a vendor for her store. I think it is one of the most beautiful dresses I own, very cunning in design, elegant and sexy. I am so very proud to have been asked to model it!
When I began AVENUE academy this year, Sea Dench asked us what would make us feel like we had achieved true success as a model. Yesterday Carrie surprised me with the news that an ad for her dress would appear in the October issue of AVENUE, featuring one of the pictures she took. While I feel there are many challenges still to conquer (thank goodness!), I really feel as if I’ve stepped through an important door. I’m so excited for this moment, for both Carrie and myself! If you haven’t visited her store, I encourage you to do so. It’s a beautiful place filled with beautiful creations made by an awesome person.
