Art & Fashion Workshop

Art & Fashion

When: Tuesday, October 25 at 5PM/SLT
Where: Model’s Workshop Auditorium

Join us as we welcome John and Eleseren Brianna, the dynamic duo at Kultivate Magazine, The Edge and Windlight Art Gallery, to speak about Art & Fashion.


The talk will focus on art and how this important form of expression brings life, passion and provocative statements to our style, on and off the runway.

As we all know, art and fashion go hand in hand. Fashion designers, being artists, create from their imagination and put on a digital canvas what they envision as artistic and fashionable. John and Eles together represent both worlds and offer a space for budding artists and designers to showcase their work.


Eles, who is COO and Fashion Editor at Kultivate Magazine, Editor and Curator at The Edge and the winner of Miss Virtual World 2015, is well known for her styling excellence and is one of the most recognized models in fashion. Her partner John (johannes1977), is the Owner of Kultivate Magazine (formerly Windlight Magazine) and Windlight Art Gallery. Both are involved in numerous fashion shows, charity events and art exhibits that showcase the incredible talents of artists in Second Life.

See you there!

FashionDish: Shopping Events vs Runway Shows

Model's Workshop Fashiondish

Shopping Events vs Runway Shows
Monday, October 3rd at 10AM and 5PM (slt)

Model’s Workshop (teleport)

October’s FashionDish topic is on the Changing Trends in modelling. Shopping Events and Blogging have taken over as the go-to source for designers to get their latest designs out to the masses. Runway seems to lag behind (pun intended) and more and more designers have turned their backs on this traditional method of selling. What does that mean for modeling in SL. Let’s talk, debate, share.

FashionDish – Fashion Show Scripts

Posted on

MW Fashion Show Scripts Poster

Join us on Monday, September 12 at 10AM & 5PM (slt) for a discussion on Fashion Show Scripts. Model’s Workshop (click to teleport)

Scripts are a narrative of what is shown on the runway, but are they effective? Do people really read them or are they distracting? Who is responsible for writing a fashion show script? What is the average pay for script writers? Should models be writing their own descriptions for a script? Text vs. Voice – What is most effective?

Share your opinion and your experience. Sabine Mortenwold hosts what will be an interesting debate amongst fashion professionals.

See you there.
