PUBLISHER’S NOTE By Patty Cortes, GIA Founder/CEO There are times in your life when you need to take a break and think about what have been done so far, what you are going to do next, how you feel at the precise minute you are writting all this down. At this precise minute, I can tell you that I am overwhelmed with joy. GLANCE International started as a small agency¿OOHGZLWKWKHDPELWLRQWREHFRPH one of SL’s premiere fashion PR agencies with core services such as a model management and a model academy. I didn’t know that along the way, I would meet so many fabulous persons, get an ever-growing and supportive staff and work with some of the most professional and attractive models out there. From August 2008 to August 2009, the agency coordinated over 50 runway shows! At the VSHFLDORFFDVLRQRIRXU¿UVW\HDUDQQLYHUVDU\ held in early September 2009, we have been proudly sponsored by the RL fashion powerhouse PRCouture.com and we hosted 24 runway shows... in 24 hours! This event was called the International Fashion Day and brought us with HSLFVLPWUDI¿Fset to 45,000 and 62,000 during the two days of showing. An incredible success that we owe to the blogger community, to New World Notes blog, Fabulous Fashion TV and Angie Mornington without forgetting our beloved public, who have always been there, saving the date to attend GIA major fashion events!

Something that would show our accomplishments, that would say thank you to all the persons who made of GLANCE International Agency what it is today... something like a magazine. With the help of highly skilled persons such as Elease Graves, the talented and fashionable Editorin-Chief, Herradura Baar, trusted and fabulous agency Executive, Amalia Foxtrot, irreaplacable Head Stylist and many other persons who inspire me (Miu Edman) and who impress me (Honey Bender) by their amazing personality, we managed to put this magazine together. I am grateful to Nazzko Shan, Lady Tempura, Julie Hastings, Amerique Silverspar, Chantelle Ashdene and all members of the photographers pool who, with their incredible talent, made of this number one issue a stellar one.

MIU EDMAN Photos credits: Nazzko Shan // by Patty Cortes

Miu is a very special person to me. She has started at GLANCE Model Academy and quickly became a top model, a stylist and won several modeling, styling and photo prizes. Miss Edman is a talented person and it is no surprise that she is known today for her fabulous hairstyle shop, called MIROǤ‡ƒ”‡’”‘—†–‘Š‘•–Š‡”‘ƥ…‹ƒŽƒ‹•–‘”‡‘ Žƒ…‡•‹Ǥ‹—ǯ••—…cess story is due to her fun and sweet personality as well as her incredible talent. She designs hair cuts like nobody else on the grid, : gorgeous textu”‡•ǡ‹’‡……ƒ„Ž‡•–›Ž‡ƒ†—‹“—‡ˆƒ•Š‹‘ƪƒ‹”ƒ”‡–Š‡…‘„‹ƒ–‹‘›‘—™‹ŽŽ Ƥ†‹ ǯ•Šƒ‹”…‘ŽŽ‡…–‹‘Ǥƒ‡ƒ…Ž‘•‡Ž‘‘ƒ––Š‹•‹–‡”˜‹‡™ǡ‹— will never cease to amaze us...

Hello Miu! Tell me a little about yourself. Where are you from? What do you do in Second Life? Hello Patty! Thank you for this opportunity. Ok well... I’m from Japan. I’m MIRONE designer. I make mainly hairstyles for MIRONE for now. I also have worked as a stylist and model for some agencies. Where did you get the idea to name your brand «MIRONE» ? To tell the truth... it’s named after Spanish wine. Actually my MIRONE shop had already existed 1 year ago. It was a furniture shop at that time. When I prepared to start the furniture shop, I just happened to drink «MIRONE» in RL. When I saw the label of that wine, I thought ‘‘This is it!’’ The wine just gave me a good inspiration and I really liked the sound of the words. Even now, I don’t know why I thought so at that time. I didn’t get very serious about shop name. Back then, I never thought that I’d get asked what the name means! Šƒ–™ƒ•–Š‡Ƥ”•–Šƒ‹”•–›Ž‡–Šƒ–›‘—‡˜‡”†‡•‹‰‡†ǫ It’s ADDIE. I made ADDIE for myself around March 2009. I needed a hairstyle to go with a gown for a show. You know sometimes your choice is the same as other models’ choice. I wanted to avoid situations like this. Plus I wanted a hair cut that showcases well the dress and is not overwhelming. So I made it for myself. The hairstyle got a good reaction from friends and YOU and I started to think about hair shop. Incidentally, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I release MIRONE hair cuts in alphabetical order (smiles)

Do you remember the feelings when people did start to buy your products ? Yes, I sure do! I felt like my styles were accepted by customers and I felt really happy. I want to say ‘’Thank you so much!!!’’ to each and every one of my customers. ‘›‘—ƤÂ?†‹–Šƒ”†–‘„‡ƒ•–ƒ”–‡”†‡•‹‰Â?‡”‘”†‘›‘—ƒŽ”‡ƒ†›Â?‡‡– success ? I have a tough time making new styles.

What would you say set you apart from other hairstyles shops ? Most of MIRONE hair cuts are basic and simple styles like RL. Some people may feel them non-descriptive styles. But I have tried to adhere to textures, instead of commonplace styles. I drew by hand each strand, and I adjusted its shine and shade to look more natural. So, I …ƒÂ?•ƒ›–Šƒ–™Šƒ–Â?ƒÂ?‡•–Š‡Â?†‹ƥ‡”‡Â?–ǥ‘””ƒ–Š‡”–Š‡…Šƒ”ƒ…–‡”‹•–‹… of MIRONE is that I’m so picky about textures (smiles)

Â?Â?‘™›‘—ƒ”‡†‡•‹‰Â?‹Â?‰„ƒ‰•–‘‘Ǥ‡ŽŽÂ?‡ǥŠ‘™†‘‡•‹–†‹ƥ‡”ˆ”‘Â? designing hairstyles ? I just made the bags for a change, when I was stuck on making hair dos. Unlike hairstyles, handbags have low prims, so it’s easier to handle prims. However the sculpted shape links the quality of bag directly, and I needed to draw shade and shadow on the texture with Ƥ––‹Â?‰’‘•‹–‹‘Â?ÇĄ–Š‡Â?—’Ž‘ƒ†–‘ƒÂ?†„ƒ…Â?–‘Š‘–‘•Š‘’–‘ƒ†† shade. I repeated that... That was laborious. So designing bag is harder than I thought, for a change of pace. I haven’t yet determined the next bag release, haha! Few people know that you are creating animations for runway models... When do you think you will make them available for the public ? The animations were made for the same reason as hairstyle : for me. •‹Â?‰–Š‡Â?Â?›•‡Žˆ‹•ƤÂ?‡„—– –Š‹Â?Â?–Šƒ– Â?‡‡†–‘ƒ†Œ—•–ƒ„‹–ˆ‘” the public before the commercialization of the animations, I haven’t begun to do that yet. Next time that I changed my mind, I will work on runway poses instead of bags, hehe. I do hope to release animations during autumn.

43 - trends report - Honey Bender

Hello! I’m curious to know when you realized you wanted to become a fashion designer ? I kind of always knew I wanted to from I was new to SL back in 2006. I started reading the only fashion magazine that was here then, Second Style. It fed my shopping habit as well as my general interest in design but it still took me a while before understanding the design tools. But designer Neferia Abel of Ivalde was very sweet, she kept encouraging me and taught me KRZWRPDNHDà H[LVNLUW7KDWZDV last year. After that things kind of happened slowly but steadily last winter. What does fashion mean to you ? ,WLVDZD\WRH[SUHVVZKRZHDUH or who we want to be like a supermarket of styles where you can play with all your different sides. And in SL it’s even more diverse as \RXKDYHVXFKà H[LELOLW\ZLWKKDLU skin and shapes. +RZZRXOG\RXGHÀQHWKHVW\OH of your collections ? My Rock Star Collection is rebellious in it’s style, it is divided in three lines; Blasphemy - Anarchy Victory, celebrating goth, punk and glamrock, plus my wedding dresses WKDWDUHYHU\ÀIWLHVURFNDELOO\1HZ /RRN7KLVIDOO,DPDOVRODXQFKLQJ a gothic line called Bathory.

What are some of your accomplishments as a model ? And as a designer ? I have been lucky and worked with some of the top names in the SL industry from i started modelling for Aspire in 2006 and then went on to Metro Models and then GLANCE International. I think modelling the designs of Digit Darkes and Paper Couture, plus Rebel Hope and of course Ivalde and Callie Cline back in the day really opened my eyes for the many fantastic creative powers who are at ZRUNLQWKLVJDPH7KH\PDGHPH ache to create my own clothes, and I am still in awe of these designers and their unique styles. As a designer I am still a debutante and humble to the craft. But opening DVWRUHDQGÀQLVKLQJP\5RFN6WDU collection felt like a great achievement. Do you consider yourself as an artist? I do consider the top designers arWLVWV7RODEHOP\VHOIDQDUWLVW" Well, I am humble by nature and not sure I feel comfortable with that yet. But I’m getting there. I do however take designing very seriously and hope people will like what i do.

main focus, the star of the show. So normally, when i get notice that I am picked for a show or a shoot I go to the designers store to get DIHHOZKDWKHRUVKHLVRXWWRH[press with their designs. Unless instructed differently I accessorice with skin, makeup and hair to show the clothes off to its best advantage and in keeping with the designers preferences. When I reFLHYHWKHRXWÀWV,GRDOOÀWWLQJV HDUO\DVSRVVLEOH7KHQ,SXWWRgether poses that makes the clothes look great - I am a massive pose shopper and update my pose collection almost weekly. I attend as many rehersals as I can so I know my walks blindfolded on the day. And at showtime - I stay focused. And pray for little lag! What are your plans for the future ? I am working on my Bathory line, and hope I can get organized enough to have a runway show this fall. As a model I am looking for more printwork - I dream of landing the cover of an SL magazine. I also love being behind the camera and I love planning shoots, both my own and shooting with others - like the wonderful Nazzko Shan who took my photo for this interview.

Hello Crosby and thank you for taking the time for this short interview. We know at GLANCE Magazine that you are busy these days with new exciting projects, can you tell us more about them? Right now I am getting ready to attend Portland Fashion Week, which should be a really fun experience. I just got back from New York Fashion Week, so a lot of events and travel. I am also speaking at the 140 Character Conference in Los Angeles in October about how retailers are using Twitter. You are the founder and editor of PRCouture.com, a fashion PR blog. How and when did you start? I started PR Couture in December, 2006 after working for 2 years in the industry. I also wrote my Master's thesis on fashion PR and was frustrated by the lack of information available online about fashion PR. A blog seemed to be a manageable way to share insight and a fun way to build more relationships in my industry. With your studies in fashion and expertise in fashion PR, could you tell us what makes a winning ad campaign for a fashion designer? Well, public relations is different from advertising, so I can’t really comment on a winning ad campaign except from the point of view of a consumer or just as a communicator. I think r that successful ads clearly communicate a brand’s message while also creating some sort of connection or reaction in the people who see it that is bigger than the clothing or the logo - it’s about sharing a lifestyle.. A lot of social networks have invaded our virtual space lately and we have all become slow but certainly addicted and active participants in many of them. How do you think that it impacts the fashion industry? Would you say that social media impacts brand image/sales? I think that social networks are a great way to keep in touch with

real life fashion expert - crosby noricks - 94

friends and to share common interests. It seems like SL has a lot of these social networking functions built in already, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure what the clear advantage would be to join yet another network. If it is anything like RL however, social media is a relevant and important brand channel and should be considered as a key component of any marketing strategy. You recently sponsored International Fashion Day by GLANCE International Agency. What motivated you to join us in SL for this event? I was interested in learning more about how a PR agency functions in a virtual space. What is your impression regarding virtual fashion designs? And virtual runway shows? I'm impressed with how effortlessly the clothes move and how patterns and trends have been translated and explored. I had a great time seeing the diversity of fashion and seeing the hardworking fashion community worth together to pull off a great day. There is a lot of misconception about Fashion PR DQGZKDWLWLQYROYHV+RZZRXOG\RXGH),ÂżQHWKLV industry? To me, fashion public relations involves providing strategic brand guidance and messaging and working with the fashion media and stylists to secure print/TV/radio/blog coverage for your clients. PR focuses on securing third-party endorsements that are more credible than adverting. PR can also go above and beyond just product placement and focus on the story of the brand and on engaging the designer or different people within the company to speak on industry trends and issues. How can one keep up with your latest online activities?

fashion marketing 101 Photo credits : Lady Tempura // Article by Nathalie Ember Hi, am Nathalie Ember, and I am like you. I love SL clothes. Gowns, Formals, Silks, Pants, Capris, Shorts, Short Shorts, Tops, Bottoms, I love them all! Let me tell you, soon after signing up and creating an avatar for Second Life, I discovered the whole new world of virtual shopping. It didn’t take me long to get hooked on the endless fashion possibilities that were available for my brand new shape and skin! The next logical step, to feed my fashion addiction, was to work right in a SL clothing store. After having worked at, and helped to maintain several stores, I saw how important the correct elements of store and product design play in successful sales. Actually there are some things that you may already notice yourself, such as: the position of your store on the sim ; the position of your store among other stores (in the case you are located in a mall), how close you are to the landing point or how customer-friendly your display vendors are. Display vendors you say? What does that matter? Well they do what they say,

and they say what they do. They display your product. Your product line thrives or dies on those little posters you put in those vendors. Like I mentioned, I have been to a few thousand stores, and seen my share of good and not so good vendors. The bottom line is well produced pictures move product. Before you begin filling up that vendor with all those great little fall fashions, some prep work is required. Firstly, regarding models and poses: Are you doing the modeling, or will you recruit models ? Are you going to go with some freebie poses, or buy some that are unique, well made, and don’t make you look as if you just dislocated both shoulders? Next points are lighting and backgrounds. You will need lights, trust me. They come pre-packaged, or you can make your own. Just practice with your light set until you find something that works for you. Backgrounds are the same, pre-packaged or custom made. Here is a good place to really think about your overall theme. A well designed, and flattering group of backgrounds, of the same sty-

le, help to establish a friendly, easy continuity across your product line. You will know when you have hit on just the perfect background, because you won’t mind using it throughout the whole store. And, finally post productions... post what? ...Well even with all those fabulous backgrounds, long legged models, and fancy lighting, you are going to need some fixing and tweaking here and there. Post-production software and a gifted professional to run it, can turn a good picture into a great sales tool. Of course you will want to add the permissions, references, price and such to the picture and your software professional can add it as well, along with your store logo. The better you can present your product line to customers, the more likely you will be to generate sales from that little vendor. Good vendor advertising hooks me everytime! I am happy to be now part of the GLANCE International Agency team and I wish to all you designers and stores owners the best of luck with your product lines. I hope to bump into you, at a fabulous new store soon! Nathalie wears Prism gown

In RL, longer than I want to admit :) :KDWLV\RXUGHÂżQLWLRQRIIDVKLRQ" Fashion is the outward expression of the inside creativity, or should be. Fashion should be personal not dictated. I love to see people mixing and matching what they haveout of what is fashionable in the moment and making it theirs. <RXUFROOHFWLRQZDVUHFHQWO\VKRZFDVHGLQWKH ,QWHUQDWLRQDO)DVKLRQ'D\ZKDWGLGWKLVHYHQW EULQJ\RX" It did bring a lot more people into my shop, the exposure has been great. It was a wonderful experience, kudos to you and your staff.

It was well worth it. I run my shops myself and I never would have had the time to put something like that together. For all the work you and your staff put it in was very well worth it. $FFRUGLQJWR\RXZKDWLVWKHEHVWZD\WR SURPRWHRQHÂśVEXVLQHVV" There is not one good way, there are so many.

Hello, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Violette.. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a Top Model in GLANCE International Agency and Model Trainer at GLANCE Model Academy. For this monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issue, we wanted to share with you our experiences as GLANCE Academy Graduates. Itsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always amazing to see our friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; achievements, once GLANCE Students, and to hear about what they experienced with us. Here you will read what they share, by their own words. 0\ÂżUVWH[SHULHQFHLQ0RGHOLQJKDGEHJXQZLWK*,$ZKHQ,ZDV months old in SL. Always been attacted by Fashion Modeling, i just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where and how to get started... Then I begun zapping through the Sims, and met Patty who welcomed me so warmly and explained with maximum patience how it works... I must say that I was very impressed by her professionalism (and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still very impressed of this). Then , I was there... GLANCE Student, but the great adventure was just in the beginning. One-on-one classes were truely amazing. I was feeling like a newborn, willing to discover this fascinating world. GLANCE became my second house, I was spending hours there to practice. And oh, also outside the classes hours I was continuously torturing my trainer and Patty with my questions: ÂŤbut where...Âť, ÂŤhow can i...Âť, ÂŤwhat if...Âť and so on..! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so thankful for their patience and kindness. When it was the time of my graduation show, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe to myself for how I was shaking. A rapturous adrenaline rush! Then it began to calm GRZQZLWKP\ÂżUVWVWHSRQWKHUXQZD\,ZDVWKHUHZLWK1LHYHDVWKHWZR new graduates, walking with the very top models, a complex choreography, coordinated for the amazing Ibizarre Showcase, and yes we made it !!!

,ÂśYHEHHQPRGHOLQJIRUDOLWWOHRYHUWKDQ\HDUVULJKWQRZEXWP\ÂżUVW\HDU,MXVW modeled as a part-time model and walked from time to time in shows. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until last year that I decided to work fully as a model and make of the modeling my main activity here in Second Life. I had some experience from the same runway shows Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve walked as a part-time model but I felt that it was time to get real knowledge to have more chances to break into the modeling industry, and I already saw GLANCE as a well known agency, putting up together amazing shows weekly and having in its roster some of the best SLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Top Models, I can say that made me decide to join the Academy as a GLANCE Student, to learn in one of the best SL academies. I was very happy when I signed on for the classes, and I was expecting each lesson DQ[LRXVO\,FDQVD\HDFKFODVVODVWHGDERXWKRXUVEXWWLPHZDVĂ&#x20AC;\LQJDQG,ZDV DOZD\VÂżQGLQJP\VHOIÂżQLVKLQJWKHOHVVRQDQGVD\LQJWRP\LQVWUXFWRUDQGDOVRWR myself ÂŤOh, already?Âť (laughs) I enjoyed and I was very delighted to have as my instructor the very own GIA CEO, Ms. Patty Cortes, the individual classes were a great chance to have her full attention to myself (the student) for about 2 hours, and also a chance to get to know each other better. Patty was a great help for me, both as in my training modeling skills but also as myself as a person, encouraging me and seeing on me my inner talent and qualities, which sometimes I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see due to being a bit negative myself in my RL, and in SL as well. My graduation show took place on Saturday May, 2nd, 2009 - 4 days before my RL birthday, so I considered it an early birthday gift. I had the chance to do rehearsals and walk the show with some of the GLANCE International Agency Top Models:

GLANCE Model Academy Portfolio by Mscha Cuttita

Antuanet Forcella (now my SL sister), TK Waco (sadly gone from SL), and Nezsy Herstein. The show was for the brand Euphoria, House of Fashion and it was amazing! A great combination of professionalism from the GIA Top Models, the wonderful and creative designs, and the thrill to be walking at the GlLANCE runway, which was my dream since many months ago. It was an unforgettable experience and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll treasure it in my memories for ever! I can say that only 2 days after my graduation show I was asked to join the GLANCE International Agency family as a Top Model and I was over the moon! I had the chance to walk in several GIA shows after my graduation and also to participate in the International Fashion Day shows, walking in 7 of the 24 shows planned, and receiving a recognition afterwards with a GLANCE Supermodel tag :) Outside the GIA family, I also got casted at the Stylissimo Store Opening Party as a live model, I also got hired as a live model for Nardcotix and Phoenix Rising stores, got hired as a model through live castings for several modeling agencies, as well as doing some more advertisings in magazines, a promotional video for Vassnia store, along with some other models, and recently I got selected as one of the WKUHHRIÂżFLDOIDFHVRI3L[H/RRNQHWZRUN I will continue working hard and reaching my goals and developping into this awesome industry, if you love fashion or you want to start your modeling career, I recommend GLANCE as one of the best academies in the industry to form yourself and develop your skills.

Initially, TK Waco was a wonderful guide for me and was always willing to work with me and show me about modeling altogether before introducing me to GIA. I was most motivated and inspired by watching models such as TK Waco, Miu Edman, Violette Weymann and Haruka Kish. Seeing them and other models in various GIA fashion shows is what pushed me to sign with GLANCE Model Academy. I enjoyed each and every class. My instructor was always more than willing to help me or answer any and all of the questions I had, as silly as some of them may have been. There are so many things from inventory management to how to walk and pose on the runway... I learned so much! All-around a great, wonderful, patient and inspiring instructor. She has never let me settle and always pushed me to do my best -very encouraging in my model career... from then until now. My graduation show was so great! To be among other models and really feel like a part of the modeling industry. Going down that runway... knowing SHRSOHQRWLFHWKHGLIIHUHQFHIURPZKHQ\RX¿UVWVWDUWHGWKHDFDGHP\WRWKH SRLQWRI¿QDOO\UHDFKLQJWKHJRDORIJUDGXDWLQJ,ZDVVRH[FLWHGDQGDQ[LRXV Sweaty palms... sick to my stomach... afraid of making a fool out of myself... worried about lag and what people thought of how I presented myself... Of course, I wanted to make everyone proud. It’s funny though, all that anxiety 165 - ACADEMY GRADUATE 6 - R0SE Seoung

just releases itself from you the moment you press that up arrow to walk forward. I truly felt I was trained and wasn’t worried that I didn’t learn enough. There is always something to learn, yes... but that moment in time that you’re on that runway... you just feel it. You just know how to control it and when forces are against you, you just go with it and move on. It was an incredible rush and I loved every moment of it! From doing GIA shows and being exposed into the modeling world, I was chosen as a JCNY Showcase Model, contributed to two of the Runway For Life shows for GIA, was able to join with other groups for runway shows. As a result and to my surprise, after one show I did, I was chosen to be a featured model on the Wizard Emerald City Sim. I have also done some freelance modeling for other various designers and groups.

Not just with modeling either, but the SL fashion industry altogether... There really is much more to modeling than just attaching clothes and prims. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Without that and the encouragement of others, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Thank you all.

My only formal training was a small intro course and I knew I was ready for training that was more in depth. One of my dearest friends, TK Waco, insisted that I try GLANCE Model Academy and helped to get me into the program. It was one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me. I enjoyed the fact that it was just about ‘me’ during training. We went at my pace and talked about the issues where I needed the most work.

I’d worked with some great girls in the modeling industry for almost 2 years and the thought of going to an actual modeling school crossed my mind from time to time, but there would always be something that stopped me from going. I’d always loved fashion and enjoyed seeing the fashion shows and I felt like I could be doing more with my SL self. When the opportunity to attend the GLANCE Model Academy came up, the stars aligned and I just knew it was the right choice for me. I found the classes very enjoyable. Even though I’ve been around the SL fashion industry for a while, I still learned something in each and every session. My lessons were one-on-one and I found that that really worked for me so we could slow down or speed up as needed. ,UHPHPEHUP\¿UVWVKRZZDVGXULQJWKHVXPPHUVHDVRQ,WZDVEHDFKHG themed and we got to wear fun and funky swimwear.

They make sure that every show is as organized as it can be. I’ve been used as a model for vendor shots since graduating and I was able to participate in the International Fashion Day runway shows sponsored by PRCouture.com. I was even able to take my experience to organize a great runway show for the Indyra Originals grand reopening! Without the knowledge I gained from GLANCE I’m sure it wouldn’t have been as sucessful.

I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the time go and had to teleport elsewhere with a heavy heart when they where over. Having one-on-one classes is nice, because when you are new to this world, it is less intimidating and you have more chance to ask questions and practise. After my training I have been hired by several agencies; but lately i didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had much time for modeling as I am extremely active in the roleplay scene with the role of a group leader. But i hope to have time soon to get back to the runway and be more active as a model. The knowledge I have now is precious, and helped me also as SL photographer or to give a make over to some friends.

Sometimes finding a style that fits you is very hard. You go out for shopping, looking around each and every store and you still won’t find what you need. We will not let this happen when you shop around Glance sim! Indeed, GIA now has a fantastic fashion center presenting the Top Designers of SL. With their help I was able to create 3 amazing looks, my ‘‘Glance favorite styles’ of the month. Lollipopz was the shop who helped me with the hairstyles as Zeev Dinzeo creates some of the most fantastic flexi hair cuts out there. For the skins, you can find the exclusive [KA] Designs satellite shop on the island. Glance sim is actually like a little fashion capital presenting coutnless clothes, skins, eyes and a lot of tempting fashion products! So this time we are showcasing the gorgeous skin collection by Kira Ahn. On our sim, you can also find a reputable shoes shop, known mainly because of its extremely realistic textures and shoes HUD that is easy to use.

Every month we are going to choose one of the best designers who host his or her satellite shop on Glance sim and show you why you should visit the shop. You can be sure that you will discover only the best quality designers from the reputable to the little gems, who deserves more exposure cause their creations will catch your attention. For October issue we chose to present you one of the best hairstyle designer, Zeev Dinzeo, the owner of the shop «Lollipopz». In the next few lines, you will get to know her better, her career choice, her spicy personality and her vision of fashion. Amalia Foxtrot: Hello Zeev, how does it feel to get the title of the Glance sim «Designer of the month»? Zeev Dinzeo: (smiles) Well... it is very... mmm.. wow! It was a surprise for me, and to say the truth I feel honored. I feel this way because I know GLANCE Crew and I know how profesional you are... So, earning this feels big... a real honor for me. Amalia Foxtrot: Thank you! Let’s get a bit more inside the Lollipopz boutique. When did you start creating hair dos and what inspired you to do that? Zeev Dinzeo: I made my first hair about 7 months ago... I did nothing in SL but play combat RPG, I loved that... But I had friends who were designers and they insisted I should try to create something... they insisted so much in fact that one day I just went to my house and I said to myself: I am going to make a haircut... because I love hair cuts and I buy new hairstyles all the time... so I was for a whole week making this first hair and funny as it sounds, my inspiration came from this first work, it opened up my creativity and I couldn’t stop anymore. Amalia Foxtrot: It sounds like a fantastic start. Tell me more about «Lollipopz» : how did you come to pick this name ? Zeev Dinzeo: It’s a name that I liked before... I wanted something sweet, innocent but somehow not so innocent... it depends how you put that name in a sentence... (laughs) well... I don’t know...it just sounded right. Amalia Foxtrot: Well that’s a unique name and really fits with what you design. Many people are interested in new releases. How often you release new stuffs? Zeev Dinzeo: Every week... I try to keep things fresh and I only take ocasional breaks in very rare ocasions...usually because I need some extra time to come up with something special... like for example what I am doing for Halloween this month. Amalia Foxtrot: Did you collaborate with any other shops until now in different projects? If yes, which 198

stores? Zeev Dinzeo: Well..sometimes I colaborate with friends... HybridZ Fetish shop is releasing a Mermaid outfit soon and I made the hair for them. Amalia Foxtrot: Did you ever think to extend your work from hairdos to other things like clothes ,skin, shoes and the like? Zeev Dinzeo: Yes... but I don’t know when yet... making hair cuts to suply the need of hungry shoppers has been a very demanding job... (laughs)... so I will probably try to venture towards making something else one day... when I find the time. Amalia Foxtrot nods: Let’s talk a bit about your first day in second life. How did you find out about this metaverse and what made you stay here and engage in a virtual life? Zeev Dinzeo: mmmm... good question... I heard about SL since it started in 2003 but never really wanted to try it... then, I guess one day I was really bored and downloaded the viewer to check it out and once I was in the first thing I thought was « I won’t last here for more then a day»... next thing I know I was staying until 3 am in the scond day here! I believe that some people will be fascinated with SL as others won’t find it interesting at all... I loved the architecture here and kept exploring... then I made friends, started to play RPG...met Rodrigo, played more RPG... started making hair and here I am... SL is just part of my life now. Amalia Foxtrot: Hehe..Well you have a very nice career here. Do you think you would be able to leave Second Life today,and continue your normal life, forgetting that in the past you were a content creator in this virtual world? Zeev Dinzeo: I believe that one day it will all be a good memory, but for now I am happy to be here and don’t think of leaving... but yes, I am sure that it will end one day. Amalia Foxtrot: And before we end this interview... Why did you decide to host a satellite shop on GLANCE International Agency’s sim ? Are you happy with it ? Zeev Dinzeo: Oh! (smiles) GLANCE... mmm... what can I say about the people that believed in me from the start and gave me so much suport and continue to give in every step I make... and that is talking from the emotional side of it, in the pratical side, I must say you guys are amazing and the projects you lead here have the professional level of any rl top event, I am proud to be part of it and yes, I couldnt be more satisfied. Amalia Foxtrot: You are very sweet Zeev. Thank you for taking precious minutes of your time to make this interview. I do wish you good Luck with LollipopZ as i am sure it is going to be better everyday! Zeev Dinzeo: Thank you Ama... And I would just like to clarify something... as I mentioned Rodrigo’s name... Rodrigo is my right hand in LolliopZ and I think I would never be here today if it wasn’t for his help... he helps me with everything on this ...from creating to building...to organizing and administrating the shop. Some people think he is my alt! (laughts) But truly, he is my best friend in SL... and yes ...we are a team (smiles).
