GFR11 | Meet the designers – Neveah Niu, creator of ICONIC Couture
When did you join SL and why?
I joined SL in the fall of ’06. I had read about Second Life® from one of the online gaming reviews, and was intrigued by the ability to virtually create anything.
How did you get into content creation for SL residents?
I started out with furniture and interior design, however, I became instantly hooked on fashion and wanted to create within the fashion industry. Being a builder from the onset, building hair came quite naturally to me. With some encouragement from family and close friends, ICONIC Couture was born in spring of 2010.
How would you describe your shop?
Uniquely edgy hair design from every day wear to haute couture.
Front Row is an event supporting Relay For Life® of SL. Why does it matter for you to participate?
Relay For Life is deeply personal for me, knowing that I have seen my real life mother go through first stage breast cancer in the past year, I felt I needed to support in every form; be it real life or Second Life, this cause deserves the support in all forms.
What would you like to say to those who are discovering you through this interview?
Oh wow… I am constantly inspired by my customers and peers, so you may see me dancing in my store, chatting with my customers and listening to feedback. Quality is something I really do strive for, so I am very open to suggestions and very aware of what my customers like to see. It is my goal to produce one-of-a-kind designs, that make you feel deliciously sexy and fashionable at the same time.
What does a true Artist/Designer do as he progresses through his craft?
He knows to reinvent himself and is not afraid to go against the norm, I would say that’s what makes a true Artist/Designer. As artist/designers we are stretched and pushed beyond our artistic abilities to create something uniquely ours.
