I have the pleasure to present to you all the very first interview of the Runway Perfect Hunt edition 3 with the designers. This first lady, was in the 2nd edition also, i am sure you will remember her from the gorgeous nails she offered! Adorable, fun, energetic and sweet, now is time for you to enter in her world and get to know better TRPH3 #30 – Kathrin Dassin of Moondance.
Hello Kathrin! Thanks for taking the time out to speak with us.
Morgane Batista: What inspires you the most to design? Whether it is bright colors, nature, patterns, etc.
Kathrin Dassin: I think it had alot to do with watching other people creating items for others in SL, and not finding something that fit me and what i was looking for.
MB: Name your favorite piece that you have made and the story behind it’s creation!
KD: I would have to say my saffron swirls 3d set. Which does have a story behind it. I created it while i was actually getting my RL wedding set up, and looking for a invitation that i could do. Well as i was doing the texture, I decided to use the texture for my wedding invite. And so my wedding invite, and my thank you cards, as well as my response cards ended up with that design, and i ended up wearing it in real life as well.
MB: Are there designers in real or SL (or both!) that you idolize?
KD: Yes there are, Spooky Mistwallow, owner of Kastlerock Couture, and Belle Roussel from Chop Zuey
MB: What’s next for the Moondance Boutique? (Any sneak peeks at potential nail sets?)
KD: Of course new nail set sand yes actually i can give you a sneak peek at a new nail that i’m working on, this nail is based on my favorite Anime of all time, Sailor Moon. This is being 100% hand drawn in photoshop and it is very intricate.
MB: If you could design any other thing in SL, what would it be? (Clothes, cars, houses, etc.)
KD: I think Jewelry, but not with the nails
MB: Describe your design aesthetic in 3 words.
KD: Unique, bold, classic
MB: How did you choose the name of your brand?
KD: I was doing belly dancing in the house one day and well the way they move their fingers looks so much more beautiful with nails on it, and one day i saw a bellydancer in front of the moon and that’s how i came up with the brand name
MB: When you came into Secondlife, did you know you wanted to be a designer?
KD: No I didn’t haha
MB: What are your other hobbies in Secondlife?
KD: I enjoy Roleplay, and taking pictures of myself, my husband and friends. And now styling outfits. I’ve started to find it very fun if frustration
