New corsets finished


New corset impressionsFor those who follow my design-stream at Flickr this will be no surprise anymore. For the other visitors: I finished the new corsets! Woohoo! They turned pretty good if I may say so myself! The corset is available in two versions: one with belts on the side (same as the Stellar corset) and the other is available with a laced back. here is an impression...

They are almost in shop... As you can see in the picture the corset(s) can be combined with lots of clothing. I, however, want to create some nifty catsuits and tops/shirts specially to combine with this new item(s). So if you want to get your hands on it, you have to wait just a little longer...

In upcoming blog items I will also talk about other items in-world which I think are worth wile checking out... Not much, but there are some :)

Progress on the website


Slowly things are coming together. This is the new website design. It isn't completely finished, I will continue to work on it in the upcoming weeks... The old website is now completely offline... The product pages in the old website will return soon, in this new lay-out. The menu on the right is very empty now, it will be filled soon. Two main items you will be sure to see soon are 'photography' and something like 'fashion'. The first one for my Flickr photography and I will put the models section back here too. The fashion part of the website will show all my items witch are for sale with links to slexchange and onrez.

For those who like to know how all works... The blog is powered by wordpress which I built my own theme for. The rest of the website will be powered by Drupal. This is done because the blog was allready built in wordpress, and I didn't want to move all content. Drupal on the other hand, is better suited to handle the product catalogue you will see here in the near future...

Clothing news? There is some... New corsets are on the way, some new shirts and I'm working an lots more :) Subscribe to my blog and you'll know when you can stop by at my shop!

Sheer latex designs


This weekend I finally had some time to pick up working on some designs again. For them I used the fairly new latex templates. The result (so far) are three new sets. The first set is called Lia, a sheer latex body which comes with matching gloves and stockings. The second set is a combination package: It is the Lia package combined with the Ava 3.0 harness. This set has been for sale for two days now, and can be called a success already... The third set is called Amy. It is the same as the Lia body, only wit snap buttoned parts (see the picture to see what I mean..) All items are for sale in my shop in-world and online at onrez and slexchange.

The new website is coming along slowly... Haven't had much tim... well... no time actually to continue that. Will pick that up soon!

Week from hell


Yes... after thinking very hard the first decicion has been made! I'm going to keep the name I allready have. I like it and most people I know, know it. And it is 'Hugo's design' from which I can extend the 'hugo's' part to other things: Hugo's photography, Hugo's fashion... you name it, Hugo's got it... well sort of...

Second, I just had a week from hell in rl, numerous things went wrong (internet failure at my ISP for a couple of days - this sucks when web development is your core business) , my colleague was ill for most of the week and the things I had to do were boring... I ended up with three days of splendid migraine. I haven't been in world since last week and the stack of work that still remains on my desk indicates I won't be the upcoming week.

There is a lot of exciting stuff I have planned... which will have to wait until I have some (more) free time on my hands. Building a new website, doing new shoots with beautiful avatars, post process them and post them, make new clothing and put it in my store... Hope to have something new out soon!

Changing the website


Yes, things are going to change around here.. two weeks ago Truus and I decided to stop working as business partners in-world. We have built up our business together, renting shops and selling our products there. Since we are both busy in rl and since my product range shifted from lingerie and clothing to lingerie, clothing and the fetishy latex designs, the combination of our products became a bit odd. So we are going our separate ways, still as good friends! Truus now decided to sell only through and She may open a little shop in-world again, and when she does, you will read it here.

So... what is going to happen to this website? Well... I am going to change it... I want to think up a new name for my business. Hugo's design is a nice name, but I think I want to have something a bit more unique and catchy. Next to a new name, the site itself will change too, a nice new design and i'll move the blog to the front page. Next to the blog the other two main elements will be the products catalogue and the models page. The content of this blog will change too... i'll still post my new releases here. Next to those, I would like to share with you the lessons I have learned so far and am still learning as a content creator and seller in-world and sl-photographer. More than enough to write about!

That is a lot of things to do, and since I run my own company in rl, I will have to see what I can do and when... Exciting times!

I also would like to thank Ryker Beck for her super review of my clothing on her blog. (A bit late... I know..) She is (re)opening her shop on the 1st of March to start selling a complete new range of products. Check her blog to read all about it!
