MANIERA LLC. ANNOUNCES THE PREVIEW EDITION OF THE REAL MANIERA MAGAZINE WILL BE AVAILABLE JULY 2012
MANIERA Magazine, one of Second Life®’s top magazines, will release the preview edition of the real life counterpart on July 8th, followed by the full first edition in mid September.
The publication will focus on news, entertainment, celebrity interviews, fashion, business and lifestyle features.
MANIERA LLC. will continue its monthly in-world version, which will now be known as MANIERA SL and the real life version will now be known solely as MANIERA. The magazines will run in parallel and share a website with a tab link to the SL version.
The aim is not only to encourage the existing Second Life® readership to partake of the real life magazine, but also to engage the real life readership with the creative potential of virtual worlds by the inclusion of articles on relevant virtual issues.
The Second Life® management team of Chief Executive Officer Thelma Lay, Chief Operations Officer Juliette Lord and Editor in Chief Jessica Luthi — otherwise known in-world as Topaz Joubert, Aphrodite Brianna and Ji Nirvana respectively — will also oversee the real life digital publication.
“What will make the real life digital version of MANIERA stand out to readers is that we started on a virtual platform.” said Lay. “ To be able to show how virtual worlds can enhance a person’s life and business, bridging the gap between the two is our main goal.
To celebrate this event MANIERA LLC will be staging the ‘Back to Reality ‘ event on Sunday July 8th at 1pm SLT. The show will open with live music from Thumper Boucher. This will be followed by the ‘Tribute to Westwood’ show featuring exclusively made Westwood inspired designs from some of the top designers on the grid. These items will be on sale exclusively on the MANIERA sim for the 7days after the show. There is also a ‘Tribute to Westwood’ exhibtion designed by SebastianDeLorence, which shows the incredible influence this designer has had on fashion over the last five decades.
The show will feature designs by:
