Spring is the time for rebirth and evolution. MANIERA as a magazine has evolved many times in the past and now evolves again.
We began in 2008 as a Second Life® publication focused on fashion and lifestyle. Topaz Joubert, the founder and still publisher, liked to say we were part Rolling Stone Magazine and part Vanity Fair. So that was our first incarnation.
We grew and in 2011 gave birth to a Real Life version of MANIERA magazine and the SL version became MANIERASL. We published two complete and separate magazines for quite awhile. Finally, MANIERASL ceased publication in the Summer of 2013.
The RL version grew and it has now become a print magazine, as well as an online magazine. The print version serves the Washington, D.C. area, with a focus on fashion, art and technology.
MANIERASL is being re-born as an online supplement. I guess this is our fourth evolutionary step.
MANIERASL will bring the spirit of MANIERA back to SL and we will report on interesting trends in SL fashion, art, and technology. We have as our goal to highlight the best of SL as viewed through our unique ManiStyle.
Find us at http://manierasl.mymaniera.com. We will publish features, columns and editorials on a twice monthly basis. There are also MANIERA kiosks throughout SL.
