AVENUE Models 4th Anniversary :: STEAMPUNK
When AVENUE first began, there were but a handful of modelling agencies and magazines. Four years ago, AVENUE Models grew from a modest agency with big ambitions to stage fashion show productions that were unprecedented in creativity. From a heaven-themed runway set in the clouds, AVENUE Models had sprung its wings and have had a major influence on what the fashion industry is today in Second Life.
Joining in the celebration of our 4th anniversary is the equally accomplished publication, AVENUE Magazine, that has established itself as one of the leading stalwarts of lifestyle magazine in SL.
So come join us as we take you once again to another time and place…in true AVENUE style…
A world infused with fantasy, fashion, culture and technology…where fiction and poetry are fashioned into Steampunk-inspired designs never seen before by the creative minds from :
GEMS & KISSES
L+N SIGNATURE DESIGN
LADIES WHO LUNCH
The clock is set, the gears are in motion…join us on this Sunday at 11am where the stage will play out first with the raw and soulful sounds by Buenos Aires musicians, Engrama.

With a creative edge AD Creations designer Aliza Karu creates clothes that are emotional, setting a mood for those who wear her designs…sharing a designer, passion and anger from within. With a background in RPG and general public admiration Aliza opened AD Creations with a small base of fans and friends and has grown to where she is today in the 3 years since.
Cutting edge male and female fashion. Dresses, jeans, pants, leather, corsets, separates, belts, jewelry – everything done in the great tradition of rockstar fashion. Perfect for those who’s not afraid to stand out in a crowd, people don’t feel limited by gender/age/shape. We believe fashion should be fun – not restricting.
GEMS & KISSES
Deliziosa Vendetta opened Gems & Kisses Fine Jewelry in 2009 and since that time, her aesthetic inspiration has taken a variety of paths. The jewelry that has resulted from each phase of her creative evolution has been unique. Never compromising on quality, Gems & Kisses ground-breaking designs have consistently been the trend setters, paving the way for those who would take their inspiration from her truly original accomplishments. Dely is an extraordinary artist, that over 2 years has joined many fashion shows, charity events and has many accomplishments to her name. She has been featured on numerous covers and has had many interviews within SL.
Opening it’s doors in April of 2010, GizzA may be new, but they’ve grown overnight to a full sim with new creative and imaginative designs coming out consistently. Designer Giz Seorn says she creates for the “Art only for art: and is inspired by her current tastes and thoughts…which has brought a very positive response thus far. With an eye on fashion, Giz is always challenging herself to push her creations to a new high and in the coming year will be a completely new designer. With an eye for creativity Giz is ever evolving and always learning. Visit their mainstore and see what they have in store for you.
L+N SIGNATURE DESIGN
We arrived on SL in 2008, full of energy and curiosity, found a lot of friend and family. After while we became bored and decided to step up our game and try our creativity skills. Loves preference was Hairstyle design and carrier in Modeling and Fashion, Nataly’s (brgn Halberstam) preference were to create steam Punk ships and Steam Punk Fashion, that’s how L+N Signature were born (2009). Each offering is an original design, created in loving detail and mathematical precision on the very cutting edge of SteamPunk-Cyber and European Hauteur Couture. Our creations are the most out of this world filled with luxury and functionality.
LADIES WHO LUNCH
A small but expanding couture virtual bakery, Ladies who Lunch (which is not just for ladies) is a niche, high fashion, store where one will find intricately designed objects–all made from environmentally friendly, reclaimed prims. The creator of LWL, Faint Paulse, is sometimes peculiar and usually idiosyncratic. Herein lies her virtual motivation: “I liken the creation of an object to ensnaring something delicate and placing it in a jar, high on a shelf, where we all might admire this captured creature and nod and smile and comment on how precious it must be without actually touching it.”
*SoliDea FoliEs* founded in December 2010 by Mila Tatham & Rodroguez Imako @ SaliMar , sim in Second Life devoted to arts. Mila is the main designer of *SoliDea FoliEs* Haute Couture and CHAPELLERIE MissMila by *SoliDea FoliEs* . *SF* love advant garde, experimentation, fantasy and a free wild expression of the different side in every woman. Mila says ” I think every woman is a queen, and I think every woman is a child, every woman is a mother, a sister, an enemy. Every woman is a warrior, every woman is a lover and every woman is a wife and a friend.” I found in Second Life the full expression for my creativity. Seeing what other women are able to express, in interpreting my work for me is a privilege and an immense joy.”
[sYs] is a Cyber Couture brand designed by sisters Systi and Syane Cisse. Scientist Alan Kay once stated: “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” The Cisse sisters must have been listening. With an extreme eye for detail the Cisse sisters consistently bring the future of fashion to the present using only their artistic imaginations. With a sweet and mysterious outlook on the future the sisters have taken their appreciation for fashion and turned it into a cyber movement.
