These dresses by mortician, model and fashion designer Laura Flook are at first glance rather morbid. Her choice of velvet and lace materials, empire waistlines and dark trimmings play a nice contrast to the frilly babydoll style of the dresses. These eccentric, Victorian-inspired frocks seem to stay true to her pre-designer past as an embalmer.

With design names such as Danse Macabre and Jabberwocky, the Laura Flock line is imbued with a sense of spooky whimsy.
