AVENUE Magazine is proud to introduce ZanzE, the newest hot spot to hit the grid. ZanzE is ready for it's debut as a picturesque sim which features everything from a shopping district, runway, photographic services and club.
Check out this up close and personal interview with ZanzE owner Zzoie Zee, as she takes the grid by storm.
AVENUE revisits the design house of Boudoir by sisters Vitabela Dubrovna and Precious Restless. Oh, how the world of fashion has changed for these sisters since our last cover interview in November of 2010. As stated before, few designers in Second Life® can boast designing success in both worlds. Boudoir happens to be one of the few that can not only boast this, but they have the published success in both worlds to show for it.

There’s always that one dress that’s hidden in the back of your closet. It’s not your everyday dress, and it’s definitely not formalwear. And while it may be all the way in the back, you never forget about “that dress.” You only pull it out for those special times. Because, in the words of Beyonce, it’s your “freakum dress.” And while you may have your favorite designers for certain looks, there’s only one who can bring out the perfect mix of maximum sex appeal with just the right amount of class. You know the name. You know the brand. And you know the feeling that wearing that dress gives you. You feel every bit of the word “sexy.” And you have none other than Eboni Khan to thank for bringing out the Hucci in you.

You’ve seen her face. You know her name…even if you still can’t pronounce it correctly. (It’s “Vicky Jay” for those of you who are still having trouble.) But more importantly, you know of her style. A staple in the blogger community, this month’s chosen Model of the Month is a fashion force to be reckoned with. While there is so much to learn, this month, we touch just the surface as we sit down with her to discuss her Second Life® modeling career. Without any further introduction, we present Vikeejeah Xevion.
"Tied Up" Fun with Fashion | Page 46 By Vixie Rayna
Androgyny was our theme for March, inspired by the upcoming Menswear Fashion Week 2012. All of AVENUE Magazine columnists were instructed to find their inner androgynous style. I tried to breakdown the idea into the basic theme of a tie.

Androgynous style is fast becoming a trend in Second Life® fashion with many designers opting to create unisex clothing. Men and women are increasingly becoming more creative in the way they shop by crossing over and branching out into stores opposite to their gender.

Fashion; it is never constant, always evolving and moving forward. And with the creation of Second Life®, there are always new fashions to see and buy for the avatar. The up-and-coming store “Entente” has been drawing lots of attention lately. With multiple designers: Baudouin Resident, Caelestinus Resident, Guarinot Resident, Meraud Resident, Nazaire Resident, and Benezet Resident, there is more than enough creativity to go around. I was able to speak with the group about their new brand and what they expect to accomplish within the SL® fashion industry.

Dura has become a household name. Its creative hair designs for men and women can be spotted on the runway, in the latest issues of magazines, and even on most Second Life® residents on a day-to-day basis. And while you may be quite familiar with the brand, many are not familiar with the humble creators behind the scenes. This month, AVENUE sits down with one half of the creative team, Chiaki Xue, to find out more about how she got her start in the world of hair, and a little more on the history of Dura.
