AVENUE Magazine - Popi by Eshi Otawara


POPI designed by Eshi Otawara

POPI - A symbol of rememberance, you will never be forgotten in this dress.

AVENUE Inc. takes great pleasure to introduce another captivating creation from the design house of Eshi Otawara. Simply titled POPI, Eshi explained that her reason for naming the dress POPI instead of the English spelling of the flower poppy was that Japanese people say it this way. Eshi's homage to Japanese style is seen in her Spring/Winter collection where she has incorporated symbols from Japan into her designs creating a harmonious fusion of fashion and art.

Eshi's POPI dress is reminiscent of the Oriental Poppy with it's splendid array of salmon, pink, red, scarlet orange, deep maroon and white colors. Bee's are highly attracted to the poppy flower and never surprised at Eshi's attention to detail, included in the dress is a stunning bee ring to remind one of their place in natures cycle when wearing this creation.

As with all Eshi's designs, they transcend from her minds eye into the Metaverse as supurbly constructed pieces that fit like a jig saw puzzle and even in movement, everything remains as it should. There is no doubt that Eshi has mastered the mechanics of clothing construction for the avatar which surely means that you will never be disappointed with your purchase.

The bold poppy hat featuring an amazing veil of white netting that softens the face and creates a certain mystery is the jewel in the crown. One can only imagine what the meaning behind the needle like adornments is and I am almost too scared to ask, such is my enjoyment of making my own interpretations of Eshi's work.

In closing, POPI is impeccably constructed and is a credit to Eshi's talents. As an aside, whilst searching locations to shoot the dress, in the space of 20 minutes three people unknown to me messaged in IM to say 'WOW, I love that dress'. That says it all right there.

Yummy Lolli!


Lolli & Star's Gems Spring 2009 Yummy Collection

When I was invited to attend the press show for Lolli Spring 2009 collection, I had no idea what to expect. Upon arrival, the first thing to catch my eye, after rezzing, was the original runway. Done up as a long waffle cone dotted with sprinkles and candies and ice cream cones arranged down the sides.

The runway was not the only thing filled with colour. As the show got under way, the models literally pranced, frolicked and twirled down the path wearing some of the most flirty and fun fashions I've seen.

Inspired by her soon to be born daughter, designer Ashen Jaerls has been able to deliver a fun and feminine line of clothing that is just funky enough to capture the young at heart.

With designs from the 'Picknic' plaid bra and panty set to the simply elegant 'Zoe', a short figure hugging dress with a flirty skirt and a dash of old and new Hollywood glam, to the 'Candied corsets'. So many of the styles perfectly suited the poses the models chose. The adorable school girl/Alice in Wonderland ensemble 'Loli' modeled by TK Wako with a cute little bounce accompanied by hearts particles. Normally I wouldn't think that was such a good idea. We all know lag is an issue. But as this was a press show, it didn't do any harm as it suited the fun of the outfit.

The Polka Dot Pin-up Sleepwear sets complete with keyhole tops, boy-shorts, bows and adjustable ruffles were a crowd pleaser. Featuring Star's Black & White Bead, Emerald City Drop of Mana and Pink Candy sets. It's worth mentioning that Ashen also has a set of men's boxers, and she promises more men's styles to be released. Yay!

A throwback to the 80's with 'Flash', a retro tank and panty set that immediately made me think of that scene. You know the one I mean. Splash! The 'Periwinkle Pinwheel' dress, strapless top with full knee length skirt was ultra feminine and was modeled to perfection by Quincee Twine with twirls worthy of any ballerina.

Featured model, Lorra Undercroft, modeled the final outfit of the evening, Lolli's
newest design 'Sabien' in a decadent red with wrap around straps and a flexi skirt that was so low... well you get the picture. Worn with Star's Red Sparkle Choker set, this is the outfit to wear to have all eyes on you.

Star Winkler's jewelry sets, chosen to match with each ensemble from the delicate pearls in white and black, the regal Garnet pendant to the more fun Candy Heart and Star sets in varying colours.

It was wonderful to attend a show that had an undercurrent of fun and I hesitate to use the word silliness because it wasn't. Not in that way. It also wasn't rigid. The models covered a range of different looks and ethnicities, the staff incredibly were friendly and professional, and the show was very well produced.

I strongly encourage you to attend the March 27th showing at 7pm slt. Check Ashen Jaerls picks for the tp info. You will be delighted, and most importantly, entertained.

AVENUE Magazine introduces new hair from ESHI OTAWARA



Eshi Otawara announces a new hair release, Otohime. This hair comes in black, white, silver, red, and champagne. The hair is long and flowing, with a hair knot suspended by a cylinder which contains dragon detailing from a RL painting she has done, which was also the inspiration for one of her earliest conceptualized limited edition dresses. Hanging from this cylinder is a long banded ponytail of hair that drapes the length of the hair. This hair continues the Japanese theme of her Spring Collection.

The sea dragon shown in the picture comes from a Japanese story of the God of the Sea, Ryujin, who lives in a sea palace, controls the tides, and was the father of Otohime, who was known as the beautiful “Luminous Jewel,” and was the grandmother of the first Emperor of Japan. This made the powerful Ryujin the ancestor of the whole Japanese dynasty.

GABBY - Hair

Also newly released is the Gabby Hair in black, which is Eshi's donation to the RFL. All proceeds from the sale of this short style which features feathered bangs and a pulled back section of banded hair with a hair clip will be donated to the RFL Charity.

The Otohime Hair and Gabby Hair are both available both in her Eshi Otawara store at Blumfield.

La Dolce Vita


It was a night of the sweet life, with AVENUE models showcasing SL's top Italian designers at 'La Dolce Vita' held at the First Meta II sim.

The elegant circular stage design surrounding an unusually beautiful leafless tree and sprinkled with umbrellas, set the tone for the innovative choreography as the models took their turns on the catwalk.

The 60's inspiration was quite apparent in many of the styles worn. The creations of Addoro Design, Alatiel Fashions, Anubis Style, Bolero Collection, DD Style, Diorsis Hair Design, Jador Fashion, Lady Thera and Preciosity of Style ebbed and flowed before our eyes.

Though the lag did try to rear its ugly head and would have succeeded were it not for the clever EmmZ Tzara and Kryptonia Paperdoll who led everyone in a rousing game of losing our attachments for 100L!

As the attachments fell and bald heads and toes were revealed, the lag settled and we were treated to several showings of the SPIRIT Dazzlers, their dances coordinated perfectly with the models own.

LA DOLCE VITA - An Italian Fashion Spectacular


AVENUE Models presents LA DOLCE VITA to the runway. A compilation of SL's finest Italian designers, both veterans and new, get together on one stage to showcase their latest collections.

La Dolce Vita, Italian for 'The Sweet Life', was hailed as the most widely seen and acclaimed European film of the 1960's, directed by Federico Fellini. Few realize that Fellini's initial inspiration for the movie was a dress created by designer Cristóbal Balenciaga. Balenciaga was an innovator in his use of fabrics, is noted for contributions to the fashion industry such as the tunic dress and high-waisted baby doll dress, and his sculptural creations were considered masterworks of haute couture in the 1950's and 1960's. La Dolce Vita, reminiscent of Balenciaga's trendsetting creations, depicts the lives of Roman celebrities in the early 60's. Fellini filled the screen with vibrant colors and elegant motions giving one a feeling of sweet dreaminess.

Please join AVENUE Models as they showcase LA DOLCE VITA filling your screen with the same elegance and vibrance of SL's finest Italian collections from Addoro Design, Alatiel Fashions, Anubis Style, Bolero Collection, DD Style, Diorsis Hair Design, Jador Fashion, Lady Thera, and Preciosity of Style. This stellar fashion presentation, conceptualized by director Rusch Raymaker, AVENUE CEO, and managed by AVENUE Designer Liaison Livia Mastroianni, will be given an avant garde treatment in choreography and set design in collaboration with dance choreographer Pyper Dollinger and special appearance by the entertaining and graceful SPIRIT Dazzlers.
