The GOL

The GOL was born because of founder Dakota Neumann’s passionate interest in design and architecture. It started in 2006 with a small plot of land and a Club. That Club evolved every six months with a fresh new design while the company stepped into commercial  and residential service.

GOL is a unique Second Life company for its look but  the variety of its interests and the philosophy make it exceptional.  Each business choice led to the development of 4 different departments on 11 sims: GOL Design, GOLden Shopping, GOL Entertainment and GOL Estates.  It is a large community, with long time residents and a dedicated and highly professional management team.

The design, coherent throughout all The GOL sims, reflects Dakota Neumann’s vision to continuously and deliberately evolve with time. Creativity and aesthetic are always first, and business follows.

CHANTKARE inMOTHion – Spring 2010

CHANTKARE inMOTHion Women’s Collection, created by designer Applonia Criss, is a dazzling array of color and texture inspired by exotic moths of the rainforest set against rich lush hues of green. The overall feeling this season is that of comfortable elegance with a modern edge. A play with patterns set against contrasting tones of vibrant red, cool turquoise, and muted beige culminating in a soft feminine touch. One will also find various patterns of the safari and butterflies. Applonia says, “we are known for very feminine clothes with a sexy edge and I wanted to play with a softer look in various delicate fabrications and tones to dazzle the eyes.”

CHANTKARE inMOTHion Men’s Collection, under brand CHANTKAREMALE, is the debut collection from new Chantkare designer Boston Westland and it doesn’t disappoint. With rich masculine tones from the rainforest Boston cuts jackets with a bold edge that compliments most men. A twist on pattern and color that is subdued with eye-catching golden yellows and shades of pewter stand out amongst the many pieces as well as tropical swimwear that will surely captivate all. Boston says, “when making this collection I wanted to convey a feeling of happiness, joy and a certain sexual appeal through the masculine eye.”

The new Chantkare store will open with this spring collection on March 29th. With the new season comes a new environment conceived under the art direction of Long Pausch, co -owner and partner. Long adds “the build is a fusion of concrete and glass tiles with an emphasis on organic geometry.” One will find interesting details of sharp bold color applied to the decor and accents, giving focal points throughout the store.

FASHION CALENDAR: Avenue Presents “For the Love of McQueen” 2/28 12PM SLT

For The Love of MCQUEEN
—————————

AVENUE Models proudly presents “For the Love of McQueen”, a tribute to the late Alexander McQueen, where 38 fashion designers have come together to lend their support in each creating a design that is inspired by McQueen’s work and spirit.

These original designs created within a week, will be showcased in a fashion show on 28th February 2010 at 12 pm SLT on GOLden shopping sim after which the designs will be available for sale at the designers’ stores for the month of March.  100% of the sales proceeds will be donated to the charity,  Keep A Child Alive, since Alexander McQueen was a known supporter of similar AIDS / HIV charities.

The project initiated and produced by Rusch Raymaker, CEO of AVENUE Inc, shares her inspiration for organizing this project:

“Alexander McQueen represents an immortal legacy of the spirit of innovation that continually pushed the envelope in fashion.  Always one to shape and reshape fashion by deconstruction and reconstruction, McQueen was indeed a 21st century designer that constantly dared to refrain from conformity.  He gave the world a new vision and perspective about fashion and his knack for story-telling to relay these messages was second to none, richly realized in his designs and fashion show productions.  His mind, his spirit and his visions were larger than life.

For all these things and the sense of loss and grief I feel for losing such a great inspiration in my life, I dedicate this tribute, For The Love of McQueen, a collaboration of Second Life’s fashion designers, stylists, artists, members of the press and the team from AVENUE Models and AVENUE Magazine, to express our gratitude for the impression Alexander McQueen made on all our lives, real and virtual.”

The fashion show will be hosted by Angie Mornington of Fabulous Fashion and staged on a build realized by Babyhoney Bailey based on Rusch Raymaker’s inspiration for the show.  Machinimaist TommyLee Nightfire will be creating a film documenting the creations and show.

The Farm

—–
Hunny Larimore is a RL entrepreneur who regularly travels to Europe for work. During her trips, she spent some of her free time in Second Life and tried to imagine something cute taking over people’s hearts and homes. Who doesn’t go “aww” in front of a bunny? Who doesn’t go even more “aww” in front of an easter bunny? She wanted to realize a fantasy of all kids and bigger kids.

After some time talking to her best friend, Bunny Tremor, they both decided to start an exciting experience… HunnyBunny. A fusion of their names, and their friendship. Turning a lifetime relationship into a cute bunny business.

Very quickly and naturally the owners of The Farm, the biggest farming network in Second Life, approached Hunny to create a unique business partnership. This merge rapidly pushed HunnyBunny to popularity beyond expectation. The name was already famous and many people joined the HunnyBunny Update Group even before the start of Alpha Testing. Many people showed enormous interest and contacted Hunny and Bunny for more information.

Hunny’s inspiration comes from Sion Zaius, the creator of the Chickens in Second Life. She humbly follows the principle that he introduced as she see her vision come slowly to life with the best coder that she has ever met… Ina Centaur. Today as the team release these bunnies to invade the grid, Hunny and Bunny feel extremely lucky to work with someone like Ina who shares the love of these AI animals, enjoys coding them and spending long nights helping realize this wonderful project.

Aeris Shenlin, owner and designer behind the stunning creations of Smooth Designs, came into Second Life in late 2006 and “fell right through the screen”, as one of her friends puts it.

She began building about four months later, starting off with mysterious artifacts, however finding the market for the holy grail was small she then veered into a full range of costumes. Having made quite a name for herself in these 3 years, Aeris’ designs, both jewelry and costumes, are loved for their attention to detail and realism. In this time she has created over 300 role-play costumes and dresses, and over 250 pieces of jewelry, and a few cottages and castles to throw in the mix.

Much of her inspiration has come from childhood memories of watching her mother beautifully create silk art work and growing up around such beautiful clothing.

For more information please contact Aeris Shenlin.
