The Gothic Look is back this AW15 with a Modern Twist
The Gothic look are underpinned with unexpected bursts of colour this season, inspired by designer mood boards.
Victorian-style lace and layered tulle comes textured in ivory and creamy shades on dresses while gowns are kept traditional with moody lace and high ruffle necklines. Nineteenth century vibes are played out on full skirts in the forest green and pencil skirts teamed with costumer-worthy lace tops and cropped blazers slung over shoulders and warp-around coats. Vamp it up with deep berry lips, period drama hair and dramatic headpieces that stand out in a crowd.
