Héctor David Jordana Vicente, better known as Toxic Etiology, is the mastermind behind this manga-inspired punk photo shoot called 'Gothic Lolita 2010.' In it, a model with long pigtails and an adorable red pinafore vamps in a gritty urban setting.

As the title of 'Gothic Lolita 2010' would indicate, Toxic Etiology has blended little-girl fashions with the hard edge of goth fashion. It's a mix that is as arresting as it is unusual.

Implications - Public figures like Lady Gaga have brought fashion crazes that once belonged to small niche markets into the mainstream. Consumers are becoming increasingly more interested in the incorporation of other cultures in fashion and design. Businesses can appeal to a mass market by blending a variety of influences and creating imaginative and unprecedented looks.
