I had the chance to have a small discussion with one of the most models loved hair creators. Either it is in prims or mesh, her hairs fits the lifestyle of the fashion industry, which is why you can see models at the store every time you go there. Tabata Jewell is the owner of Vanity hair.

Hello Tabata! Thank you so much for speaking with us.

MB: What made you decide you wanted to make hairs?

TJ: Hi Morgane, i decided to make hairs, cause I needed hairs. I use to be a model in sl, and the fact that i could not find the exact hair i wanted to style my clothes made me go bald in many fashion shows, so i finally decided to give a try and make my own :)

MB: Do you have a favorite hair color you’re particularly drawn too?

TJ: Not at all, depending on the outfit, skin, styling i will choose the color.

MB: How did you choose the name of your brand?

TJ: well, i use to be a real hair whore, so in order to find new hair stores, i use make up names and look for them in search. So one day i typed ” Vanity Hair”, there was no shop named like this. I thought that if i ever had a hair shop that would be the name for it :)

MB: What hair pack would you dub as your favorite?

TJ: the Fatpack LOL

MB: Are there designers in real or SL (or both!) that you idolize?

TJ: I usually like more the songs than the singers. Meaning i don’t really follow any designer, but if i am in love in with one product i try to buy no matter who is the designer ( some times i like very expensive stuff..then i have to save the money in order to get it, but it really is worth it.) In SL is different cause you get to know who is behind the designs, and when you have a personal relation ship with those designers, the whole thing changes. You love a designer, yes, but in my case i love the person that is behind the designer tag.

MB: Describe your design aesthetic in 3 words.

TJ: Not a clue :D

MB: What are your hobbies in Second life other than designing?

TJ: Obviously shopping, when i am done with a hair, i love styling the vendor picture. So i go around and shop the items for that specific hair, it takes me a whole day or even more to do so. I am very picky with my stylings.

MB: What’s your favorite quote (from a movie, designer, etc.) that influences your daily life?

TJ: “It takes 5 seconds to get to the door and leave my apartment, i give you 3″ This quote is from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, may not be exactly like that, as i am translating it from spanish. But i have used it a couple times to get rid of undesirable and rude companies. Well, i guess i am not the only one who has had a bad date :)

MB: What’s next for Vanity Hair?

TJ: I really have no idea, i just go with the flow :)

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

Thanks for sitting down to talk with us!
