60 Apocalyptic Fashion Examples

From Desolate Grayscale Editorials to Masked Model Runways

— August 19, 2014 — Fashion
These apocalyptic fashion examples illustrate the fashion world's ability to not only sell luxury but to create a dark dreamworld for its vast audience. This dark world is brought to life with dystopic imagery that contemplates the possibility of a disturbing future for our population.

Whether inspired by sci-fi film imagery or literature, these apocalyptic fashion examples range from conceptual editorials to masked model runways that appear sinister in their visual aesthetic.

Whether ambiguous, understated or over-the-top, these futuristic fashion finds often feature vanguard images that captivate their viewer. When examined, the examples are often avant-garde and daring in their point of view. Furthermore, they dare to push boundaries and to change the way one looks at traditional fashion.
