Applonia Criss

Name: Applonia Criss.

SL Rezz Day: December of 2007.

How did you get into Fashion Design?
By accident LOL I wanted something in a color and I made it.

What inspired you to get into Fashion Design?
Hmm... Lot's of things... I wanted to explore my creative side and being that I have an RL Fashion Background it seemed sort of Natural to try it here in this reality.

How you describe your line of clothing?
It is a Mix of my Personality for the Modern Sophisticate who's Energetic Loves Classics with a Modern Edge.

What's your favourite piece to wear? Why?
Hee I'm such a Girly girl both in RL as well in SL. I'm always in a dress or something. All my pieces are my fave LOL

You have to pick one outfit from all your creations as your favourite work. What's your choice and why?
The VERY BEST dress I ever made in SL. Because it allowed me to see all the possibilities that I can create from that and now, when I pull it out I'm reminded of how far I've come creatively as well as my Technique has grown.

You have other Designer(s) that you admire? Who? And why?
OMG!! SOOO many LOL. My faves that inspired me MUCH to get in this crazy Fashion World I love would have to be the Lu Sisters of Paper Couture and Minnu Palen and Thora Charron of LeLutka. They have pushed the envolope as far as technique and design for me in this metaverse. I am truly inspired by many others but at the moment they stand out in my head.

What advice do you have for young woman/men who want to be a Fashion Designer?
Hmm... Dare to dream and never give up on them! Stay true to your vision no matter what the critics say after all it's YOUR Second LIFE!! :)
