Store changes @ KMADD

Due to the sheer number of products and size of our store, it can be overwhelming and certainly confusing for the customers who are arriving at KMADD for the first time.

For many years, we have been battling with this and and tried to make changes in an attempt to address these issue and make KMADD easy to navigate and newcomer-friendly place.

Today, we would like to introduce you to few store changes we made this week, that we hope will make your time @ KMADD a more enjoyable experience.

And here they are:

1) Welcome Area

  • Teleports to different departments
  • Connect with KMADD & Join our subscribo to receive a free gift!
  • Hunts and Events we are currently participating in

KMADD Improvements_002

2) Free Stuff

  • Located directly in front of welcome panel so it is easily accessable
  • Features free hair base for our old hair textures + free female style
  • More free items are coming

KMADD Improvements_009

3) Avatars & Hair grouped together

We often get asked by our customers if avatars featured in our hair ads are also available for purchase. As in most cases they are, but they are located in a different department it was difficult for customers to locate them. Well that was in the past.

We have now placed all available avatars directly above our hair displays, saving you a lot of time in having to look for them.

If hair does not have matching avatar it means it is not available – in some cases we’ve made alternative suggestions.

This is how this change looks like…

4) Best Sellers / Must Haves

I can not tell you how many times I have been asked by customers which hair is my best, or I like the most or would recommend.

Well, here they are!

If this is your first time @ KMADD – start here…

KMADD Improvements_006

On one side are our classic styles and on the other are our hawks…

All hair featured on this wall will be retextured with new colors and avatars will be available for purchase.

KMADD Improvements_007

5) Hair Base Area

KMADD is famous for hair bases and here you can get new hair texture hair base which comes with BONUS hair and you can demo all our hair bases with one click. Same for female just on the opposite side.

KMADD Improvements_001

Our new hair base and tattoo collection is right next to it. Some of these releases are only exclusive to events (Body Modification Expo and Men Only Gacha) – so if you get LM when you click to buy you would need to teleport to events location to purchase them. Of course, once events are finished, these items will be available for purchase in our store.

KMADD Improvements_011

6) New Releases Area

  • New Hair and Avatar displays
  • Avatars and Hair will be presented together and this is how it would look like.
  • New release area is right next to the landing point

KMADD Improvements_005

7) Eyes Area

Remember this? I made this set for Frolic Mills for BOSL Opera Styling Challenge for this year’s Miss Virtual World Contest.

I liked it so much that I decided to use it to present KMADD eyes within our store.

We have created small display of few eyes from our collection in female hair area with direct link to our eye department.

This way customers can see how eyes would look when worn as well as teleport to view our entire collection.


KMADD Improvements_010

So that’s basically it!

We hope you like new changes. If you would like to check them out – Visit KMADD.

We know that new changes take time getting used to.

As always all MADesigns shapes are MODIFY and DEMOs are offered within each shape section. So come on down try them on and see what it fits. You will be amazed what difference a great shape can make to your skin as well your confidence level in Second Life.

KMADD Reinvented reopens TODAY

For the past 3 years, KMADD City visitors have enjoyed the convenience of having the top brands for men all in one place. During this time we offered free stores to over 100 established and up and coming designers for men, thus increasing their exposure and popularity. We provided a one-stop-shop for style and appearance services/products that have improved the lives of thousands of SL residents.

Top Row (L-R): Wavie Heller (Valiant), Raven Pennyfeather (RFYRE),  Maddox Dupont (MAdesigns/KMADD), Kirk Claymore (MADesigns/KMADD), Shai Delacroix (Casa Del Shai),  Chloris Hathor  (Indigo/Viva La Glam),  Serjordan Bonetto  (Emery), Yelmer Pfeffer  (Alphamale)

Bottom Row (L-R):  Antonia Marat (Artilleri),  Starley Thereian (Moderno),  Cheerno Destiny (a.C. Store), Akemi Yoshikawa (Akeyo)

As KMADD City has grown, so has KMADD as a brand. Originally, MADesigns only had male shapes, but now caters to both male and female clientele – offering shapes, hair, skin and eyes.

Due to the natural progression of our business, the space at KMADD City has become limited. We were not only in need of more prims to be able to keep releasing new products, but all the unique textures on the sim have created lag – which has impacted on shopping experience at KMADD. Therefore, some changes to our current set up were needed.

Today, we have unofficially reopened KMADD and started to set in motion changes that will revolutionize how you shop in Second Life.

Our new store combines all our products (MADesigns) and services (MAD Agency, MAD Image, MAD Studio) under one roof. While our initial plans will be focused on our own brand, rest assured we will not forget our KMADD City Designers.

Fashion has always been at the heart of our business and it will continue to be so in new and exciting ways. Gone are the days of stale stores in malls; our compact, low lag format and projects that will keep fashion at KMADD fresh and exciting are just around the corner. Here are just some of the things we got planned for you:

– TIMELESS WARDROBE – classic timeless pieces for both men and women
– NEW RELEASES – new fashion releases from 100s of stores in one place
– SEASON PICKS – MAD Image stylists will pick key items of the season
– FREEBIES – top brands & their freebies
– EXCLUSIVES – exclusive fashion items found no where else but @ KMADD

Visit New KMADD today and experience the future of sophisticated fashion shopping.

Further updates and official opening event details for new KMADD sim scheduled for 5th of December will be posted shortly.
