A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I AM A RATHER QUIET , NOSE TO THE GRINDSTONE KIND OF PERSON. I FIND IT VERY DIFFICULT TO NOT ALWAYS BE FOCUSSED ON WORK. THAT WORK BEING MY WORK DESIGNING GARMENTS IN SECOND LIFE. I AM A WOMAN OF FEW SPOKEN WORDS BUT HERE I SHALL ATTEMPT TO SHARE MYSELF AND MY WORLD WITH YOU IN MY WRITINGS. I WILL WRITE ABOUT THE ACT OF DESIGNING WITH PHOTSHOP THE PHILOSOPHY I HAVE ABOUT DESIGNING AND SHARE TIDBITS ABOUT SECOND LIFE DESIGNING AS A PROFESSIONAL. IT IS MY JOB. I WORK EVERYDAY WEEKENDS ,SUNDAYS. OFTEN I START AT 4 IN THE MORNING TAKE NAPS AND WORK TILL THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING IETHER DESIGNING OR CRUISING THE NET FOR IDEAS OR SWATCHES OF FABRIC TAKING TUTORIALS OR CRUISING SECONDLIFE FOR NEW DESIGNERS WORK.iF I AM NOT WORKING I AM TALKING ABOUT WORK ITS REALLY REALLY RATHER OBSESSIVE BUT I LOVE WHAT I DO. i HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF DRIVE FOR THIS. ITS A NEW SIDE OF ME I HADNT TAPPED INTO BFORE I JOINED SECOND LIFE. PASSION REALLY!

ON COMPETION: I FLOAT BETWEEN TWO THINGS ....FEELING THAT THERE IS A LOT OF COMPETITION AND THAT THERE ARE SWARMS OF NEW UP AND COMMING AND BETTER DESIGNERS THAN ME, HOT ON MY HEELS...... OR FEELING THAT I AM UNIQUE AND BELIEVEING IN MYSELF AND THAT I WILL ALWAYS HAVE MY OWN PLACE IN SECOND LIFE BECAUSE OF MY PERSONAL VISION.MY WORK ETHIC AND MY LEARNING NEW TECNICQUES. DEPENDS WHAT DAY IT IS. :p

Nonna, with all your beautiful designs and dedication, you'll always have a place in the SL fashion world. :) You're a true professional, and not only will your blog be interesting reading, but also it should be very helpful to new SL fashion designers. I'm looking forward to reading it.

When I found Nonna's shop from a Linden Lifestyles blog, I went crazy when I saw her designs. She makes things that no one else does, of the highest quality I've ever seen.

I bought a dress and came back for another a few days later.

SL bugs took my money and didn't give me the outfit. I IMd Nonna and didn't get an answer, and because the people search showed her onling, I'm ashamed to say that I thought I was being ignored, that she didn't care. I'm glad that I was very WRONG about that.

It turned out that IM's were not getting through. When the IM's finally worked, Nonna got back to me immediately.

Nonna is not only a world-class designer, she is a fantastic person, and really cares about her customers, the kind of person that SL needs more of, but are in short supply.

THANK YOU Nonna, your designs are without equal, and you are a wonderful person as well.

Hi Nonna, I just wanted to say that I love your work. Soon after I joined SL earlier this year, I bought two of your dresses and every time I wear them I get compliments and "where did you get that" requests. Your dresses are among my most favorite wardrobe pieces. You have a wonderful, utterly classic aesthetic that wears exceptionally well, and I hope you continue your passion in design as long as possible! Thanks, Nonna, for creating such timeless pieces that make me look like a million Lindens!

It only you designed men's clothes! The quality is not there for men in SL!

Nonna -
Your style and designs are amazingly elegant, creative, and of a quality that is rare in SL. I marvel at your talent...you have always been my personal inspiration in SL, as I continue to design clothing; your work is the bar by which I measure my own efforts. Should I ever achieve anything so alluring, I will consider myself a success in SL.

Hi Nonna, when I came online on SL in 2006, went looking for dresses and I totally loved yours. After I got the horrendous 500 L Business in a Box (April 2007), I realised that with a lot of patience (ok, ok, it took me nearly 7 months - haha - to figure out PS) and swearing, I too could make dresses.
Not anywhere near your league, but give me another year, lol, and I hope to be your far-away cousin.

Best regards,

Sascha Frangilli

Nonna, You're designs are some of the most unique and truly detailed closest to rl quality that SL has! I've only seen a couple of others that can even come close... so your vision, beauty and unique creativity comes out in what you do. Your designs keep drawing me back because of these things as I'm sure it will do to others who appreciate the styles and art you create with each outfit!
