What does “A Personal Approach to Fashion” mean?

  • My name “En Yo! in Spanish roughly means “In Me! And I want you to know that’s where every ¡En Yo! item comes from.
  • Even though I buy my mesh models from the wizards of Blender, every one of my textures is made by Dana Enyo–never purchased. If I can’t make something unique and beautiful, I won’t make it at all.
  • Inworld shops make our virtual world more interesting and vibrant places to be! So every ¡En Yo! Shop gives 50% of every sale (except 100% charity sales) back to the hosting sim.
  • I’m inworld a LOT. And I visit all my shops often. It’s very special when I can meet a customer in one of my shops and provide an experience that you might have in an exclusive fashion salon in Real Life.
  • I want you to KNOW what you’re buying! So my vendors and Marketplace pages show the front and back of every outfit, and sometimes a closeup of fine detail. AND because still photos don’t show sparkle and shine well, I make short videos of nearly everything so you can see it in motion.
  • If you have trouble with any ¡En Yo! item, or it’s not everything you hoped, please let me know! I want every customer to be pleased, always.
  • Thank you for visiting!

How Do I Name Things?

I really enjoy naming the clothes and shoes I make. The names come from different sources. Some are places I’ve been, either lived or visited (like Grand Boulevard (in Detroit, where Motown Records began), Chapala (the biggest lake in Mexico), or Ushuaia (the world’s southernmost city at the tip of South America). Some come from stories (like Phryne of “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.”) Sometimes the shape or texture suggests the name–the off-shoulder Lyra is from the constellation of that name which has the shape of a lyre, the small harp used by the Romans. I made the vintage Cassie corset dress especially to wear at Cassandra City. And the new Nyota-P suit — Google that “Nyota” and find out (it’s a person you’ve known for decades)!

Sometimes the dress or boot just inspires a name, in me or someone I ask for a suggestion. Sindra was named the first time I wore it; the name just came to me. And occasionally I see a person’s name that I love, and just file it away in my mind waiting for the right dress to go with it.

Anyway, it’s fun! If you ever think of a name you think would be perfect for something to wear, please share! Send in IM or Email anytime!

Ko-kwal-alwoot–The Maiden of Deception Pass

I found this beautiful mer-themed story at Deception Pass State Park in the State of Washington, USA. It is translated from the language of the Samish Indians. Read the story of Ko-kwal-alwoot.

My Inworld Shops

It’s great to buy things INSIDE Second Life! Marketplace has millions of items, but it’s the inworld shops that help make our virtual cities exciting places to be! The rent that creators and seller pay helps keep the dance clubs, concert halls, play spaces and everything else we love alive and active. Help us help you by visiting our actual shops!

My shop locations have and will change, but I’ll keep them up to date here! If you’re inworld, see if I’m on and IM me! I would love to meet you, model my clothes for you, and help you decide on the perfect outfit.

As of May 6, 2024, I have NINE inworld shops!
