On this new journey I wanted to show a bit more of a person I admire with all I have. Hard worker, honest, straight to the point, holds a unique beauty, Owner of the one of the best brands of the grid LYBRA, she’s also a former Miss Virtual World 2013 and an absolutely fantastic model.
I admire her skills, the talent she possess, and above all, the tenacity to deal with things. Her job is nothing more, nor less, than to give us excellence.
With her … I do not have any filters, thoughts come out without thinking.
That’s what we call friendship, and beyond, I also call Natzuka Miliandrovic .
Lets start this!
D | I already know a lot of you, but most people do not know who is the real Natz .
Let’s start with the obvious … You are a girl of the fashion world .
At this point what it means for you the fashion industry? And how you think fashion industry is now?
N | At this point of my second life journey, fashion industry means mesh, digital retouching and bhv files.
I am not sure of the point that the virtual fashion industry is right now, but I can see that finally the real trends are flowing in the virtual reality and the virtual fashion meant only to be virtually consumed is interestingly feeding itself with mainstream trends and timeless cultural illustrative phenomenons like comics and movies.
D | Who gave you the input to start in this industry? Do you admire someone that gave you this will to become a Fashionista?
N | Oh I love this question…
I joined fashion a couple weeks after my avatar rezzed in second life cause I needed pocket money to play the game and beauty contests were a nice way to save something, so I started to attend fashion shows and I met some designers that liked my avatar and suggested me to start with fashion.
D | You were MVW 2013. What you would discart from the experience and what you treasure?
N | Oh…I’ve been asked this question so many times…and I want to be honest with you and your followers. I was the miss of the “scandal”, the one that was defined by many “the not worthy or the joke, the one there by accident” … Still now, after TWO years, I receive mean comments and hateful ims about my title, by people that makes a point of pride with their friends in insulting me : subtly or openly. But I am not trashing anything about that experience, I am proud of how I handled myself in that situation and only I know how much it taught to the real me, so the balance it is still really positive. Also, that experience brought in my life two special priceless blessings : Mila Tatham and Aliza Karu.
D | Photography! You’re a genius and we want to know more. What’s about that passion?
N | I always loved photography and traditional visual arts, my real life is a path shaped around that, but second life has the merit to have made me discover this whole world of conceptual game artists in the game and outside, that changed my perspective towards the idea of art itself so much that sometimes I find difficult to define the impact that it has on me.
D | Obvious question… Tell me ’bout Lybra! [Store and husband].
N | The store is a project that reflects how Lybra and I are in our real lives, the vision, the inspiration and the grace that comes along with the brand come all from him and flow in a concept that is so personal that can be imitated but never duplicated. While I have the luck of observing how every part of this take form and melt together in one concept, I am pragmatically researching, developing solutions and sharpening my skills as knives so his creativity will not suffer any technical limits.
D | Finally, you know we both can be a deadly combination. I know most of the times whats going on your mind, and u feel exactly the same about me.
Now… tell me what you want to say… Let us know your statements, what runs inside you, what bothers you, what you love, what makes mad… [Like we do together as if no one is reading this].
N | This is tough for a conclusion, but I have to admit that I have big toleration problem towards stupidity and I can smell lies through the computer screen, so you all people out there are alerted (add a an evil wink here :P).
