The fashion world in Second Life contributes greatly to the virtual economy. Avatar add-ons and fashion are, perhaps second to land sales, the largest factor in Second Life’s L$ trade. For a lot of people, it can also yield a real world income in USD – this is less true today than 3-4 years ago, but some of the top SL content creators have made a decent living creating fashion for avatars.
For many other people, Second Life provides an escape and virtual way of life. The glamourous and creative field of fashion is a fascinating hobby, and these interests can be explored online without spending a fortune. We’d like to share our insight, experience, and creative flair with you, whether it’s creating texture maps for Second Life fashion, producing an in-world fashion event, or walking a virtual catwalk.
