WELCOME TO THE IMA SHOWCASE AT THE INTERNATIONAL MODEL CONVENTION!
International Modeling Agency (IMA), aims to provide a genuine alternative for truly innovative designers to present their work directly to the public and fashion industry. Our agency aims to assist and manage the public relations and promotional needs of Second Life designers.
Our Agency, Agencia Internacional de Modelo, started its path almost a year ago, through the conversations of several students of modeling, all with a vision and love of fashion.
In the end four women have emerged as founders and owners of IMA:
Ananaya Mai,  Cecilia Verrazzano, Genevieve Kamala, Heydon Milter.
We share responsibilities and duties, as well as laughter and fun times; we want you to have a good time with our showcase. Please relax, detach huds/aos and attachments and enjoy the music provided by our great DJ Amar Coronet.
We are IMA and we welcome you all in our world!
On the screens you will see images from some of our shows, which we tailor to each different occasion with new runways and especially created sets.
Today we want to show you some pieces from two of our designers, whom we like to work in close contact with, especially new designers who can light up our imagination and we can best serve their work on the runway when the sparkle of imagination has been set to fire.
We are also very proud to have some special and creative sponsors today:
Dona Flora Jewels, Aleida Shoes and Avion Cosmetics. These talented creators add shine and beauty to the runway today with their imagination and visions of fashion.
Our fabulous host today is Janina Scarmon who will introduce to you the beauties on stage! Welcome Janina!

Ananya has worked with many models where their puppeteers are sick or from less than desirable rl situations and made many friends.  Ananya would like to ensure that IMA is a place where you are looked after, where skills are recognized and developed.  Ananya believes that the SL fashion industry and associated community is the most exciting and ALIVE place to be and would love to expand this community so that more events are held during her Australian time zone so more Aussies can participate.

I have become a model, I am in charge of creating our future school, and today I am the show director, I do hope you will enjoy the music, the fashion and our approach to sl. Thank you.
