Name: Vixn Dagger
Store name: Vengeful Threads (Formerly Vamps & Tramps)
Born/Rez date: 5/26/2007

1. What brought you to Second Life?
A friend in RL Joined and I got curious, joined up too.

2. When did you decide to get into designing and why?
I Managed a Store named “Damage” in Sl for a few years & had been a Model in RL during my younger years. The combination influenced me to get into Fashion in a Virtual form.

3. How did you come up with your store name?
My Store Name used to be “Vamps & Tramps”. When I realized there was a RL business under that name & decided to change the label.
I had many people tell me I wouldn’t succeed. They told me I couldn’t do it, to quit. TO me, success would be my own personal Revenge. So, Vengeful Threads was Born.

4. How would you describe your design style?
I’m known mostly for Goth design, but that’s not all of what Vengeful Threads is about. I’m actually pretty eclectic and have a strong passion for Fantasy Design.

5. What designers in SL do you admire and why?
Oh Man, there are MANY designers I admire. Truthfully, I have a great respect for most designers because I know all the hard work that goes into their work. It’s a lot of time & dedication. A few of my Favorites are: Redgrave, Lapointe & Bastchild, Mandala, Gabriel, and of course…Rfyre.

6. What is your all time best seller?
Time and Time again…..ANYTHING BLACK LOL!

7. What projects are you currently working on?
I’ve committed myself to a few events over the Summer & No doubt will be committed to a few more. My Game plan is bringing more of my own flash art to incorporate into my designs. I take on events that help give me a challenge.

8. How do you think men’s fashion has changed in SL?
Men’s Fashion has grown in Leaps & Bounds. The Fashion industry in the past was primarily all about women, thus why Vengeful Threads has more women’s fashion than mens. That’s changing now. The Male population has made their voice loud and clear that they want more diversity. Vengeful Is trying to add to that diversity & I am now always trying to make a point to design something for men when ever I design a womens outfit.

9. Is there anything in SL you haven’t tried but would like to? If so, what?
I must confess…I’m Daring Person. There isn’t much I have not tried other than being a child avatar. Being a child avatar hasn’t held much appeal for me, although I have had a lot of requests to design some children’s clothes for them.

10. What advice would you give to new designers?
DO WHAT YOU LOVE…and remember..yes, keep a pulse of what is trend but do NOT compare yourself to others or try to be someone else. When you do what you love, the greatest work is born. People will see that & will admire what is uniquely you. And Lastly, Do it because you enjoy it, not necessarily for the linden.

1. What brought you to Second Life?
A friend told me about it, I checked it out, and here I am.

2. When did you decide to get into designing and why?
I more or less drifted into it. I was exposed to the SL fashion scene when I started designing sets for a modeling agency, then had the opportunity to manage a menswear brand. The owner got married and left SL, so I ended up doing it all.

3. How did you come up with your store name?
I tried my hand at designing while managing another brand. My creations were sold under the original brand name, but with “Black Label” added to show they were my work. When the lead designer left SL, I adopted the Black Label name.

4. How would you describe your design style?
I have been told that a lot of my stuff is “preppy.” I don’t design SL clothing, I design what I like in RL then recreate it in SL.

5. What designers in SL do you admire and why?
I don’t know much about what other SL designers are doing to answer that. My inspiration comes from RL designers like Armani and Lauren.

6. What is your all time best seller?
That would have to be my engineer-biker boots.

7. What projects are you currently working on?
I have a lot of stuff in various stages of completion; some really nice boots, some sneakers, and more Multi-T items. I could tell you more details, but then I would have to kill you.

8. How do you think men’s fashion has changed in SL?
When I started, shoes were made of prims. Sculpties changed everything, but mesh was the big game changer.

9. Is there anything in SL you haven’t tried but would like to? If so, what?
I’ve pretty much tried everything I wanted to, and more than one thing I wish I hadn’t. ‘Nuff said. :)

10. What advice would you give to new designers?
Don’t be in a hurry. Design what you like, but understand that your first efforts will probably suck. Hone your skills before you put your name on something.

ZULAM AVRIL 2015

1. What brought you to Second Life?
A friend told me one day
Come, I made you visit a virtual world, I answers him, yes go there now !!
it was in 2007, as time goes on.
ps/ English is not my language, I use a translating to improve my English ..
and sometimes it gives some differences. SO… I formulate to the simplest.

2. When did you decide to get into designing and why?
I immediately felt like doing tattoos, I had a tattoo that I had to stop looking at every angle, it was a full body and I told myself one day I will do one as well…

3. How did you come up with your store name?
The first name was “Tattoo Paradise”
and then I wanted to change everything, I moved elsewhere, and the name of my shop became “TaOx Tattoo” in 2013
For a simple reason that are the first letter of my name TAO, the X is a symbolic key for me.

4. How would you describe your design style?
I do not have a particular style, I like so many things that it would be difficult for me to choose only one. I love asia, the dark side, the tribal, the dot, animals, flowers, skull, naughty things, fine, henna, old, mixtures also ect …. and black, especially black, the color I particularly like. this is why its unusual colorful tattoos in the store; but I do sometimes out of envy colors.

5. What designers in SL do you admire and why?
Yes! I feel admiration for for all that I find beautiful and quality, difficult to make a choice once again, this can be a simple object, clothing, accessory, a different structure, deco, art, decorating a sim, a event, a person, a group of people, a DJ, a show, a singer; there are so many I can stop there.
The tastes and colors !!
And you know what you admire?

6. What is your all time best seller?
This is the “wild spirit”

TAOX TATTOO  BLOG TaTToo Wild Spirit GM X BLOG 1024 728

7. What projects are you currently working on?
Mnn !! Secret….

8. How do you think men’s fashion has changed in SL?
The men take more care to their appearance, the mesh body are more realistic, and attractif, the creators follow this trend towards “beautiful”. which allows for amazing looks.
The beautiful, the beautiful and the beautiful yet ….

9. Is there anything in SL you haven’t tried but would like to? If so, what?
Lots of other things in Indeed, the time may be miss!
One among all “dj”
Impossible to live without, Music is another passion of mine.

10. What advice would you give to new designers?
To always do his designs with a great desire.
