Question: What lead to your becoming a sponsor this year?
Answer: I have several friends fighting breast cancer and want to help as I can.
Q: Tell us what inspires your creations.
A: I have several inspirations. These items were inspired by the theme Blossoms of Hope.
Q: How do you keep up with the latest trends in Second Life?
A: I read the blogs and magazines for fashion in SL. I don’t design for any other reason except I enjoy it and enjoy using it to help charity events so current trends don’t really affect me.
Q: Any advice to any other budding business owners in second life?
A: Stay true to your heart and design what makes you happy.
Q: Tell us about your shop or display at the 2016 Blossoms Of Hope Showcase for MSABC. Any new and exciting items you are bringing?
A: My MSABC vendors contain items just for this event. I have also included a versatile set of silks that can function alone as a corset without the silk attachments.
Q: Is there any you would like to add?
A: I am an MP only store now except for events.
