About The House of Meiling
(THM press release and Fashion show presentation)

Meiling is a real life designer who, in addition to Meiling couture and bespoke wedding wear, also owns MSQUARED signature-styled affordable fashions, Meiling resort wear, and Meiling Limited Edition uniforms. And this month, she takes her innovations digital in Second Life that will rock the virtual fashion scene.
Meiling’s designs pair the haunting flavor of the Caribbean with the whimsy of Tokyo street style to create a chic fashion look that channels the artist in everyone.
Born in Trinidad, Meiling has always had an interest in fashion and began designing as a young girl. After attending the Lucie Clayton School of Design in London, she returned to Trinidad and Tobago to set up her first studio and retail outlet. Today her designs are worn by celebrities such as Chef Wolfgang Puck and former Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliam.
Meiling was one of only two designers in the English-speaking Caribbean to show at the 2010 Plataforma K in Colombia. This year she was invited once again to return to this prestigious South American fashion event as the only designer representing the English-speaking Caribbean at large.
She also received the 2011 Women of Influence Award from the Association of Female Executives of Trinidad & Tobago for her innovation and business acumen.
You might can she create SL clothes even if she was a RL designer? The answer is the wonderful team she has in SL. Her niece and RL Business Development Manager, Chigadee London, who is also owner of Couture Chapeau in SL, not only introduced her to SL but will be creating her designs into SL clothes together will her partner Balthazar Fouroux, who is a master sculpt artist in SL and a RL graphic designer.
This wonderful three-some is what is going to make "Meiling" possible in SL.
Her clothes in SL will be the exact recreation of her designs in RL which means we will be able to buy and wear her wonderful clothes in this virtual world and how exciting is that?

Welcome to the House of MEILING

Meiling is the premier RL designer of the Caribbean. She is renowned for her work in fine linens
and natural fabrics.  Her style is minimalist but with close attention to the detailing of every piece,whether beading, embroidery, or a razor-sharp pleat.
Although each item produced is unique–a black dress or a crisp white shirt, a bespoke wedding dress or a men’s linen jacket—the end result is always a sophisticated garment marked by superior workmanship.
The list of local, regional and international celebrities who wear her clothes include celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck and Miss Universe 1998 Wendy Fitzwilliam.
" I am very excited to have a presence in SL and to bring my designs in here for the residents. I am fascinated by this incredible platform of creativity and community and  totally 'get it' why people love being here. We have worked hard to translate my designs to the SL standards and to make sure that it looks as good or even better than the real thing."
