As Halloween is tomorrow, I think it‘s the right time to talk about gothic fashion. Yes, it’s “Black is back” this season, and any good fashionista worth her Gucci bag will already have her closet filled with this latest trend.
Even though the word “gothic” has always been tied to mystery and romance, it’s now getting more and more interest from the fashion industry. Vampire style is back with True Blood, Twilight and other movies and TV shows related to the gothic mystique. Moreover, this year during Fashion Week, designers have shown us the best way to adopt this style with a fresh spin on the classics.
