AVENUE Models 4TH Anniversary :: STEAMPUNK :: OCT 30 – 11AM SLT

AVENUE Models 4TH Anniversary :: STEAMPUNK :: OCT 30 - 11AM SLT

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…

Violator and Gems & Kisses have Love for McQueen

What do Violator and Gems & Kisses have in common? Their amazing ability to work a prim. When you step into either store you feel like you’ve walked into a designer oasis of absolute talent. Both of their pieces for McQueen’s tribute not only paid homage to the man but also to his endless genius.

Violator

“Hasta La Vista Baby is a “Tutu” style, much loved by McQueen mixed with punk and London Style suggestions of a yellow acid and black color.” ~Soraya Vaher

Gems & Kisses
