Fashion Decadence

Fashion Decadence - November Features

The November issue of AVENUE Magazine is filled with pages full of fashion decadence. If you haven't made time to indulge yourself with one of our most memorable issues to date, then you are missing out on a real treat. The issue features the fashions of several amazing SL designers including Alatiel Malies, AlexanderHunter Rembrandt, and a little something special from Agnes Finney.

The talented Alatiel Malies is known for her chic, classic casual styles. However her brand, Alatiel Fashions, is probably most likely recognized for producing some of the most beautiful gowns in SL. You'll find some of her lovely fall creations in the Fashion Spread section.

The fall fashions of AlexanderHunter Couture appear to be greatly inspired by the vivid colors associated with fall and range from soft feminine ensembles to dapper designs for the fashion savvy gents. This gifted designer doesn't just make clothes, he designs entire looks including skins and shoes.

Finally, the issue features Part 1 of the series on the lovely ladies vying for the title of My Precious Queen, a contest developed by none other than Agnes Finney. AVENUE Magazine is a proud sponsor of the contest and the lucky winner will receive a scholarship to the AVENUE Models Academy in addition to many other great prizes. This article gives you a closer look at some of the contestants and a few of the remarkable designs from My Precious Agnes Finney.

Stay tuned for a fabulous Holiday Special Issue coming out this week.

Walk on the Wild Side : Fabulous Alternative Fashions


AVENUE Magazine November

Everyone in Second Life loves the idea of being unique. We often take any opportunity we can to express ourselves in ways that we might be a little hesitant to do in RL. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is through the way we dress.

As a result, tattoos and alternative fashions such as goth, grunge, neko and punk are big business in SL. Additionally, there are several amazing designers out there who thrive in this area. Two of these fascinating designers are featured in the November issue of AVENUE Magazine.


Since 2007, Xion Hack, owner of Addixion, has been providing Second Life residents with some of the most incredible tattoos and peircings around. However, Addixion, is not just limited to the production of these amazing tattoo designs, it is also responsible for some of the most detailed goth female skins as well as grunge clothing styles for both men and women.

If Xion's artistic flair isn't apparent when you look at his tattoos and fashions, it will be when you venture out to take a look at his amazing SIM which features satellite locations for several well known designers. Simply put, it's gorgeous and worthy of exploration.


Similarly, Arian Voss, the creative force behind Rebel, is indeed a fashion rebel. He's his own man who designs on his terms with absolutely no deference to style trends. This strategy clearly works for him because he produces some of the most imaginative and unique punk and grunge gear on the grid.

Visit his store and let your imagination run wild as you mix and match the realistically detailed separates to create your own unique look. For those of you who prefer to purchase more complete looks, Rebel offers nicely styled outfits as well.

Learn more about these talented men and their brands in the November issue of AVENUE Magazine.

CheerNo Deuil Winter Collection

For men's fashion in Second Life, none are as alternative as CheerNo. He does not draw within the lines. He likes to get messy and it all comes together in a creative explosion of in your face style.

"Montage", his fall line released last month, brought forth colorful pieces woven through with childhood whimsy like lollipops, legos and cotton candy. The old adage real men wear pink has been redefined to include bright and vibrant yellows and stunning purples and blues.

With the release of his "Deuil" winter collection, which means "Mourning" in French. (Thank you Aris :D) A more somber line. Given its name this makes sense. However the boldness of the outfits cannot be missed. It gave me the impression of someone mourning but not at all ashamed to experience those emotions and let it be known. With a palette of silvers, whites and deep blacks, the clothes are fierce. Mixing in elements of popular icons such as Marilyn Monroe and even a bit of Glam Rock ala David Bowie.

Mortifera, a fearlessly sexy ensemble that includes a see thru black shirt with Marilyn Manson's image emblazoned on the chest and torso, bondage style bracelets and armbands, was a crowd pleaser. The HOMME Venus Dark skins created just for this show, added the finishing touch.

As always, CheerNo's pieces are perfect for mixing and matching. The black padded half jackets with hoods and ski pants, yes ski pants. Wool blazers, sequin patterned pants along with cleverly sculpted attachments truly enhance and deliver a real feel to the line.

Entre Mare Designs


Classy, feminine, and elegant are just a few words that describe the creations of Sykao Adamski.

In fact, the designs are so lovely that I will go out on a limb and say that every woman should have at least one or more.

Simply put, these designs are breathtakingly gorgeous and will make anyone who wears them feel beautiful and alluring. Entre Mare caters to its clientele by providing an array of unique formal looks that range from cocktail dresses to ballroom gowns that are guranteed to make heads turn.
