Designer Dossier: Kimber Carter CCD Lacy Muircastle Reporting...

Kimber Carter is the new owner and designer of Carter's Custom Designs (CCD). Kimber purchased the CCD store and products from Caithlin Carter in August 2010 and continues in Caithlin’s footsteps to provide the most elegant jewellery and beauty products to the citizens of Second Life.

Kimber came to SL out of curiosity. She commented “There is always something to discover and learn. Everything here is complex yet at the same time simple. If you look closely you can figure out how something works and then put it into the big picture. It's like a dream, a very happy one, a dream and a fantasy. I love fantasy and here in SL, you can live it.”

Kimber got into designing jewellery when one day after purchasing a ring she studied it and discovered that it was not very well made. This spurred her on to investigate what was possible. So she started searching for textures and then found other things that gave her ideas; that triggered more ideas and interest and it became a passionate mission for her. Kimber says “Finding out how, what, where... I was amazed with the endless possibilities.” Soon her first business “Elegant Designs by Lake” was born, which then became BodyWear Jewelry. This business belongs to Lake Swords which is another avatar of Kimber’s.

Because BodyWear went on to become really successful, Kimber (Lake) took the decision to make it into a franchise operation thereby giving her more time to do what she really wanted to do – design jewellery.

And then in August 2010, things changed again and Kimber bought CCD from Caithlin Carter.
Kimber stated “When I first heard that CCD was for sale, I was totally intrigued. I couldn't stop thinking about the possibilities but I was also concerned about the amount of work that would be involved in the transition. I would go visit Caithlin’s store and carefully look at each item. At first, I didn't think I would be able to handle such a huge project of converting everything but as time went by and after numerous visits with Caithlin to discuss the details, I decided to go for it. I am deeply grateful to Caithlin for everything she did during the sale process and it helped me tremendously when she put the reference in her profile to me and the new CCD. I was now owner of one of the most elegant and prestigious jewelry and avatar beauty-supply stores in Second Life. The dream became a reality.”

Kimber says that she manages all of this with the support of an outstanding team, LarryB Writer, Caithlin Carter who remains on in a design capacity, Iain Wandsworth and all her beautiful models.

Kimber is very passionate about what she does and expects nothing short of perfection from herself, wanting only the very best for her customers. She said “I would like the experience of shopping at CCD to be completely immersive and truly inspiring.”

She has plans to fill the CCD plaza with brilliant new products, products that set the pace for Second Life fashion and products that really make use of new viewer innovations and trends.
Kimber concluded by saying “My main goal has always been to make this my perfect world... Perfect in every way... And along this journey in second life, I learned that this so-called 'fantasy' is actually 'real'. Real people, real friends, real passion, real feelings, real challenges, and real business. I have also found 'real' happiness from this wonderful opportunity to do something that I love and something that brings a little beauty into people's lives.”

Designer Dossier : Mami Jewell / AZUL

Mami Jewell is a well recognised name in the world of fashion in Second Life along with her brand AZUL. AZUL is undoubtedly a personal favourite fashion brand of mine in the formal gown and cocktail dress category. It would be very difficult not to look amazing in one of Mami’s creations.

You couldn’t wish to meet a nicer or more generously natured person than Mami Jewell. I sincerely thank her for taking the time to be interviewed where others have declined. She certainly does not appear to have let her very obvious talent for design go to her head in any way.

Mami came to Second Life in March of 20007 after hearing about it from a Brazilian friend of hers. The opportunity to create something virtually really intrigued her, so here she is. She herself hails from Japan. This lovely lady loves creating in SL and cannot abide any form of drama.

In November 2007 Mami opened her first AZUL store. Deciding she needed some guidance, she was taken under the wing of the wonderfully talented menswear designer, edo Tone, and after 6 months of his tutelage she graduated far more confident of what it is possible to do from a design perspective in SL.

Mami is renowned for the gowns she has designed for a number of the finalists of the Miss Virtual World contest run by The BOSL group , such as Miss Virtual World 2009 Mimmi Boa , three of the finalists for Miss Virtual World 2010 including 1st Runner-up Sora Tatham. Most recently she designed the formal gowns for Miss Virtual World 2011 winner Serene Faith, 1st Runner-up Louise McWinnie, 4th Runner-up Tania Tebaldi and a top 12 finalist Blossoms Sweetwater.

Accolades that have come Mami’s way: at the beginning of 2010 she won the VAIN INC.’s readers’ choice for Best Female Formal Wear of 2010 and more recently she was selected in April 2011 as the BEST FEMALE FASHION DESIGNER in the BOSL AWARDS 2011, plus “-AZUL- Sora” was selected as one of the 20 most beautiful dresses ever designed in Second Life.

Mami concluded our interview by saying “I’d like to thank the many people who have been working for ‘Help Japan’ in SL, and those who have made donations for Japan, particularly those who purchased my items put out to help Japan! As you know, we are still having a hard time because of the earthquake that happened on 3.11 and the ensuing tsunami and problems with the power plant. But we do believe Japan will keep on advancing towards revival. Thank you so much for your help!”

FASHION: Fashion Insight - Lacy Muircastle Reporting ...

Ms. Costa Rica Sims 2011
Staff Reporter
• Monday, August 30, 2010
A beauty pageant from the inside.
Ok so I have done something I never in a million years thought I would do, I entered a beauty pageant!
I am not sure what I was thinking, but well now it’s in for a penny in for a pound. The pageant in question, none other than the Ms. Costa Rica Sims 2011.

I have to admit that it has been somewhat of an eye opener to say the least and if nothing else I will come away from this experience with a greater admiration for our SL models.
To enter the contest, head shots and full body photographs were required and I scurried off to my favourite and one of Second Life’s best photographers Kent Nowicka. Kent thankfully made the photo session relatively painless. Photographs duly taken were submitted to the event co-ordinator, the inimitable Ms. Payton Heron. 

Little did Payton realise what she was letting herself in for by allowing a non model to be a finalist in the pageant. People, I have had to learn how to walk ... turn (on the spot), walk some more, turn some more, oh help, how to feel incredibly stupid. I ask myself again ’what on earth was I thinking?’
We have been notified as to the outfits we are to wear for the finals event and been informed that we are to choose suitable poses for those outfits – ‘Poses? There are special poses that will show an outfit off at its best?’ I swear I am going have heart failure before this whole process is over.

And of course there is more – Ms. Photogenic more. Another photo session ‘arrgh’ and you will never guess who the photographer was this time? Mr. Virtual World 2010 himself, Mikey Batriani. The gorgeous Mikey is another fantastic SL photographer and he did all the head shots for the online voting page for Ms. Photogenic.

Well that is where we have got to so far with voting now open on the Costa Rica Sims blog. The Miss Costa Rica Sims web photogenic contest runs from Sunday, August 29, 2010 through Wednesday, September 15, 2010.

To be continued (if I survive)...
