ABOUT US

MODA Modeling School opened its doors in 2006. Jujudoll’s first official session began with 7 students, four later became full partners in MODA Modeling School, as the need for quality instruction increased, as did MODA’s notoriety on the Second Life fashion scene. Today, MODA continues to host small classes, several times a year, producing some of the most prominent and sought-after fashion models in Second Life. Many of MODA’s students have continued in their careers to open top-rated modeling agencies and production companies, and are regarded as being the best models, mentors and leaders in the Second Life Fashion industry.
