GFR11 | Meet the designers – AliannaMarie GossipGirl, designer of Insatiable Fashions
When did you join SL and why?
I joined Second Life® in May of 2008, after seeing multiple advertisements related to the Gossip Girl portion of Second Life, hence my last name, haha! I was curious about this virtual world they had set up, and once I got on and logged in, I was hooked! I actually didn’t know there was a world beyond the Gossip Girl sims until someone showed me, and once they did, I kept exploring!
How did you get into content creation for SL residents?
I went to a fashion show in 2009, and after that I wanted to get into it! I actually resold clothes first, then I decided to try making my own. I showed my friends, who showed to other friends, who happened to be GossipGirls (Redsoledrea and Akaya) and owning a store! They loved my creations as well, and really pushed me to open my own shop, so I did!
How would you describe your shop?
Insatiable is: alternative, girly, fun, flirty, cheeky, grungy, and sexy. All of my favorite things, haha!
Front Row is an event supporting Relay For Life® of SL. Why does it matter for you to participate?
Relay for Life has done so much to bring the SL community together through charity. It’s really moving to see what people have done, all for the sake of helping others. It really reminds you of how beautiful the world is when we all lend a helping hand. It makes me feel good knowing that something that saves me daily (clothing design), can in turn, aid someone else! It’s a wonderful feeling!
What would you like to say to those who are discovering you through this interview?
I would like to obviously say hello! But also thank you for even reading this and checking out my store as well! I hope that you enjoy what you see, and read, haha. I am always open to suggestions as to what to make, so by all means, please send me notecards with ideas!
What are your goals for the next year?
Definitely to expand my brand, by making more high quality items. This year, I am really trying to challenge myself and tackle new things. I’m pretty pleased with what has come out so far; the response has been amazing! I’m still gonna stick to my graphic roots, of course, but I also want to dip my toes into new waters and change things up!
