CARNAL-Primal desire the literal definition is of the flesh or body..like desires….but in a kind of instinct way. By Potnia Theas

When I think of style I think of art. Potnia Theas designs are a work of art. She has created a detail and awesome fashion line. Her clothes can be described as class, elegance and beauty now we know truly why she won the Designer Challenge at MWC. She had début her fashion collection at MWC Fashion District on January 3, 2010. The first show of MWC Fashion District of the year, many people attended. You could see by the reaction of the crowd how much they loved her designs. The atmosphere was intense and joyous. She is one of the most wanted designers in Second Life. Potnia personality shines in her creation. He heart seems to flow thru the textures and fabrics of her clothes. Potnia is in a class by herself. I wish more of her design were displayed today but unfortunately due to technical difficulty I can only bring you my vision of the event. The beauty spectacular event MWC models preformed that night.

Which designers did you think would be your biggest competition?

***Everyone. It was really hard for me to tell who would end up on top. Each week all the designers got better and better.

What was your favorite outfit you designed on the show?

***If I had to pick a favorite, I think it would be Fireside. That one took me to a level of designing that I had not achieved before.

Any tips for any would be next season’s contestants?

***Keep trying and work hard to improve your outfits each round. Also think carefully about the theme of each challenge.

Which piece are you most proud of this season?

***The entire Winter Social line. I put a huge amount of work into that, and many outfits that I created for it I did not use. I was really pleased with the final result.

What does winning Project Runway mean to you on a personal level?

***Two things:
1. That I worked really hard, and I am so grateful to have won, because I know the other designs worked just as hard.
2. That success is not a trophy, but a state of being. My personal contest with myself does not end there, and I will continually strive to improve my work.

Describe your philosophy about the art of fashion.

***Fashion is wearable art and can express a wide range of ideals and emotions. Fashion can portray culture, concepts, moods, and so much more.

What about fashion as a business?

***I think a fashion business excels when the creations inspire people to want to join in with the vision.

What inspires your designs?

***Life, living, everything. I actively look for inspiration in movies, television, magazines, my friends, my family, my community. I look for concepts in life that I can relate to and express in clothing.

What advice do you have for a young woman who wants to be a fashion designer?

***If anyone wants to seriously be a designer, they have to love what they do and stick with it no matter what. Always strive to improve techniques and make tomorrow’s designs better than yesterday’s.

This last line in the contest I made variouse styles which many include the suede fabric, the line ranges from trench coats and everyday jackets and dresses and jeans to club goer outfits, kind of a look that you would see on streets in a big city, some going to work, some just shopping and some going to special events. All of these outftis have resize scripts in them for your fitting needs :). Enjoy!  Here are some highlights of Hotla designs below:

Creating designs for the competition has been keeping me very busy. I try to cater to the nature of the challenge while still maintaining my personal style in  the finished product.

  • Whats your secret of having your stores open for so long?**Persistence and a dedication to consistent quality improvement; both in the shopping experience and the product. 
  • How do you maintain a loyal customer base?**Customer service is very important to us. We do as much as we can to ensure that the customer is greeted and any questions they may have are answered.

Hotla Hoodoo

  • How would you describe your style as a designer? I really dont have any particular style, I do anything that I think looks good :). My style jumps everywhere I guess, so I have almost something for everyone.
    In the final will you incorporate your style in the 7 to 15 outfits you are creating for this competition?Yes, somewhat.
  • Describe your journey the past few weeks in these challenges…..It has been a blast, it really has tought me few things that I didnt practise before, I sometimes did get stuck on an outfit and couldnt work for few days due to that but this journey has tought me to just push through that and make myself finish it. But over all I just had a lot of fun and got to know couple new people through all this :).
  • Not only are you designers most of you own stores, how long have you had the stores, where are they located? My store has been in wards (sim) since early 2005, was my first land I bought and just had tiny land at first now I have expanded and own most of the sim.
  • Whats your secret of having your stores open for so long? hmm I dont know a secret I just am self motivated and love to design and so longest the tiers are paid with sales I will stick around. 
  • How do you maintain a loyal customer base? Always be nice to customers with problems and what not, I do sometimes just spend time talking to them after a problem has been resolved (such as they can’t fit in something right etc) Replace an item if something is wrong with it..fit it for them etc etc..its just help help and be super nice 😉 .
  • What is your target market?I dont know , like I said I just make things whenever I get an idea and believe me I get more ideas than I can produce.

Jenni Eros

  • How would you describe your style as a designer?
    I don’t believe I have a specific style.  I enjoy trying new things and have made a wide variety of design styles.  If I had to clarify my style it would be everyday fashionista.  I believe my designs are perfect for those who enjoy rl fashion.
  • In the final will you incorporate your style in the 7 to 15 outfits you are creating for this competition?
    I will be creating outfits that appeal to a broad range of people in SL.  I want this line to be clothing that pleases my customers by being versatile, elegant and fun.
  • Describe your journey the past few weeks in these challenges…..
    Oh wow, its has truly been a journey for me.  Before beginning this competition I was floundering as a designer not really what I could do and wanted to do.  This competition has taught me show much about my own abilities and given me focus.
  • Not only are you designers most of you own stores, how long have you had the stores, where are they located?
    I actually started designer about 2.5 years ago for a short time.  I made gorean dresses, silks and jewelry.  However, I was not consistent in keeping a store open due to rl.  I have recently opened my own home store in this last month.  I own a full sim and my store is located there.  I also, have smaller satellite stores at MWC, Castle of Goddess Mall, and a couple of others.
  • Whats your secret of having your stores open for so long?
    Well, it’s not been that long, but my secrete, if there is one, would be understanding the customer and appealing to them.
  • How do you maintain a loyal customer base?
    You maintain loyalty by doing quality work and basically putting the customer first.  In designing focus on what your customers want and in service being there for them when they need you.
  • What is your target market?
    I really don’t have a target market, but if I had to pin myself to one it would be just the regular fashionista.  Those women that truly enjoy fashion and dressing nice here in SL.
