Attrition!

So I know it’s a bit delayed, but I’d like to share the photos fromย Attrition.

Attrition was this past Sunday and the theme was Vampirates!

I can’t wait for next Attrition! I will also be DJing there for the first time! I was supposed to DJ on Sunday but we had some technical difficulties with my music which will be sorted for next time.

Gothic influences in commercial fashion

Back in the day, goths wereย looked down on and “normal” people were very unaccepting of their fashion choices. Today, Gothic influences are creeping into commercial fashion almost everywhere. From Alexander McQueen to Saint Laurent to Diesel. Leather and lace have even become leading winter trends which cannot be missed. I love that nowadays you can find a few Gothic garments in any store, even the “cheap” retailers stock some Gothic items. Every Fashion Week I find a few designers whose collections I absolutely adore because of the obvious Gothic influences. I am passionate about bringing Gothic influenceย into commercial fashion because I believe the two can work together; they don’t need to be opposing ideas as they were in the past.

Here are some of my favourite Gothic inspiredย looks from AW 14/15:

Vivienne Westwood Red Label – Romantic Goth

Saint Laurent A/W 14 – Wednesday Addams

Chic Freak – PVC dress & stockings

Alice + Olivia – Romantic

Diesel – Lots of leather

And here are my favourites from last year (AW 13/14):

Valentino – Wednesday Addams

H&M – Cut-out lace skirt

Dolce & Gabbana – Lace

Saint Laurent – Belt buckle dress

Katie Gallagher – Distressed hooded dress

There were many more but these were the ones that stood out for me the most. I hope to see the Gothic and dark romantic influence grow to create more beautiful garments like these.
