PERSONA is a fairly new design house. I had these review items dropped on me last month and got really busy, so I'm just now getting to them. PERSONA also presented recently for the Metro Models "New Shoots" show and I heard did really well. My friend Tanya Book wore one of her suits and had very positive feedback upon it.

For someone so new, Myllie Writer is turning out some nice and well-done clothing. Seams match and she has an excellent eye for color and pattern.

First up is the Odette Silk Striped dress. The textures are good and I really like the greyish color with the black accents. The fabric looks great. The skirt consists of three prims, which I found a little odd at first, since they're each separate. After some adjustment (and who has ever been able to put on something and not had to adjust it?) I think it works well. The skirt lies straighter and narrower and looks much better that way than if it'd been a typical prim skirt, so the reasoning behind it was made clear. The overall look is very good. It's a much more classic line, that would be perfect for the cocktail hour. I have to say that I really like that she went away from the traditional prim skirts for this, they're really getting tiresome when they're the only skirts designers put out and they all look the same except for the texture.

The second dress has a fuller skirt and is brightly colored. It's actually one of three freebies in her shop. It's a fantastic party or sun dress and is very well-made for a freebie. In fact, when I first tried it on I was wondering how much it cost and if it came in different colors. :D I love the plunging neckline and the use of pattern is complementary to the whole design.

Finally, I have a couple of swimsuits. One of them, the last one pictured, is your fairly standard bikini. The other one, however, has a bit more style. They are sophisticated alternatives to typical beachwear with loud prints and colors.

I'm really not sure what else to say about the designs. They're very well-made, the designer obviously put a lot of thought into the execution and they're a nice addition to a fashion world that lacks a great deal of clothing with simple elegance and class. I look forward to seeing more items from her in the future.

I just got that skin to use in my fall ads, and I haven't taken it off yet. I think it's one of her best yet...

I think this creator just solved a problem for me with her unique dress idea, as well. I'm going to have to IM and ask if she minds seeing it elsewhere. I absolutely love the look of it in your snapshot.

I'm not placing the LJ name - which designer are you? :D

The new CS skins are great. I'm usually more of a TaP or Skin Within girl, but because there was a sale... and I'm a fall girl... well... :D

Yeah, the skirt ended up really nice - not poofy! She's really an approachable designer, I found.

I'm not surprised, I'm still pretty new. lol
Jordana Heron - Pedalpusher Designs in Linji.

I practically emptied my account on the sale this weekend. I decided my first week that CS was my SL skin-crack. lol

I've got this sweater dress that will not sit right on the hips that's been driving me nuts, I really hope she'll let me snag the shape. It looks like it would be perfect. I'm really glad you reviewed it or I might never have found her shop, and wound up scrapping the dress all together.

Ah, I'll have to check out your shop sometime.

Have you seen Blaze's little knit dresses? They have a two panel prim skirt. (I think it's just two panels.) And there's two different skirt versions. I'm at work so I can't check on that for sure right now, but I remember it being another non-typical skirt.

If you hold out a couple days, I'm finally ready to start doing some actual promotion this week, and you and Coral are both on my list for review packs. (Although, if you have any requests I can revise what I'd already planned on putting in it.)

And I'll look around, but I'm not recognizing the name. I keep trying to come up with something on my own, as well. I'm just not as handy with the build tools as I am with PS yet. lol

i did a review of myllie's design and texturing talents over at ASpiRE! Fashion Blog (http://aspiresl.blogspot.com/2007/08/texture-tantalizing-myllie-writer.html) a while back. we may have both been given the same review pack. anyone interested should take a look. for such a newbie i thought her texturizing and tailoring were above the standard of some of the more established brands. one can only hope she doesn't get caught up in the adulation buzz. she seems level headed enough to prevent that from happening and will continue to produce at the pace she herself sets. (fingers crossed)
