Glam Gothica

Dark and eerie fashion gets dressed up with sophisticated elements

Implications - Gothic fashion has typically been associated with black makeup and black attire, often comprised of leather and fishnet, as well as religion-inspired accessories and piercings. In recent years, the gothic look has been more grunge than glamorous -- until now, that is. Designers are pairing the eerie nature of gothic garb with high-fashion glam, giving the look an interesting and alluring overhaul so that fashion consumers who desire sophistication can also appeal to their darker sides.
