Virtual London’s high street, like the real high streets of London, is filled to the brim with glamorous shops from clothing to art gallaries. Like real London VL’s stores aims at everyone, from those who have different tastes and styles, with stores that are affordable to those that are unbelievable exspensive.
In Corpore was created by young designer Sara Zuta, her amazing causal and formal wear (for both men and women) are affordable at a price range of 60L$-200L$, great for a newbie who has just come into some fresh Linden Dollars. The Torch SLG got an exclusive interview with one of London’s leading designers:
How did In Corpore come into existence?
Well .. it was no accident … one day, as always, I was having fun in SL, and received an invitation for a lecture on creating clothes. As I am always open to learn, I went to that class, and I was excited about the possibilities to express my tastes in that I use every day in real life. Shortly after I wanted to show my creations in a store and so, my first and dearest came up shop in SL … at Mayfair, London.
What are the basic aims of In Corpore?
Show the people behind SL, which I think in terms about clothes, which, to me, has a sense of good taste, an opportunity to show to friends and other people in SL what I can do.
How did you store get involved with the London Sim?
I can not remember the exact date, but it was some time ago … It was not hard to choose, since London (at RL) is one of the places in the world who appreciate the most. And yes London is very well constructed, showing many similarities with the RL London and with the same atmosphere.
In Corpore is always available to help new people coming into the SL. And especially my self. One of my biggest concerns is to help the newbies ,so they feel comfortable in SL and to keep in mind that the key is fun . If you visit my shop, my cat (Acacio) will show that there is for a small preview of the possibilities that SL offers for fun.
If you have a newbie collection, can you tell us a bit more about your newbie collection?
My collection is made to suit all tastes. Some of my clothes are made for simple newbie use. The more complicated (for use) are accompanied by the most detailed instructions available. And I’m always open to help using my creations.
Do you have any up coming offers for newbies?
My offerings are for newbies quality, irresistibly attractive prices and, more importantly, show that Second Life is a world where all possibilities are possible. Even improve their English;)))) And here is the invitation for me to make a visit to my store in London Sim .. and make a leisurely stroll through London at SL;)
A taste of In Corpore:
Newbie Friendly: 8 out 10 (Fantastic clothes easy to find, gives to the landmark with to the main store, prices are affordable)
Clothes: 7 out of 10 (Great range of clothing for women, but only three choices for men, still very well made)
Over all experience: 8 out of 10 (The main store is very welcoming, the music is smooth and relaxing, the cat Acacio follows you around while you shop, which is fun)
From affordable quality clothes, to stores of expensive high fashion Virtual London’s high is available to everyone. K-Code is another London Resident that the Torch SLG has come across before. In late February K-Code stunned the run ways of Virtual London Fashion Week. Designer Kara Derseler met with the Torch SLG for a short interview to tell us a bit more about her fabulous clothing line.
Tell us a bit about yourself and how K-Code come into existence?
I started K-CODE as a project to escape tha daily stress. But this is not an easy business at all, it involves a lot of work so … LOL … my stress is still there :)) But, on the other hand, I really enjoy doing this :)As for myself, I am working computer graphics in real life as well. Unfortunately, I don’t have as much time as I would like to take care of my SL business but I try to do as much as I can with the little time left from RL
What kinda for clothes does K-Code produce?
I make mostly casual or cocktail clothes right now. But, in the future, I would really like to extend the range of products if the time will allow me.When I started this project my first aim was to make clothes that I would like to wear. … LOL… in SL or RL alike. But I haven’t covered all that yet
How did you store get involved with the London Sims?
When I started my business I was looking for good places to rent stores and, of course, I found the London sims which was and is a great place for business. I like very much the architecture here. It gives you the feeling of being in real London and there are a lot of different kinds of spaces to rent in order to satisfy any kind of demands the tenants might have. And the London team is so great!! The people envolved in this team are always very kind and reliable. They are doing a great job here ! 🙂 So, I am very happy to be a part of London This city is very lively, there are always exciting events and parties going on here so it is definitely a great place to be a part of! Are you clothes affordable to newbies? Depends on what the newbie would like to wear or would like to spend inworld. I am aware that a lot of newbies are looking for freebies. For a while, at least. Until they sort out what they would like to do with their virtual existence. Well, there are not freebies in my mainstore yet but I always take part at hunts other discounting events with my satellite stores.
Is K-Code taking part in any events or does K-code have any new offers coming out?
I will soon take part as an event that is very close to my heart and that is Project FUR Japan for helping the animals that suffer after the earthquake in Japan. I don’t know yet where this event will take place but we will find out this very soon.Of course new releases are and will be available in the mainstore soon. And in the most of my satellite stores as well.
A taste of K-Code:
Newbie Friendly: 8 out of 10
Clothes: 9 out of 10 (Clothes are well made tailor to fit all shapes and sizes, but makes a HUGE dent in your pocket, if you’re a woman.)
Overall Experience: 8 out of 10
The City London gives you everything you ever wanted, from amazing museums to places to shops and to live. In SL, Virtual London does the same, giving the residents the real of London without having to get out of their seats.
