What is a Gothic Fashion? Did you know that besides wearing black clothes, they also wear black make-ups like black lipstick, eyeliner and even the nails are all in black. Some dyes their hair to black as well.
“Goth fashion has a reciprocal relationship with the fashion world. In the later part of the first decade of the 21st century, designers such as Alexander McQueen, Rick Owens, Gareth Pugh, Ann Demeulemeester, Rodarte, John Galliano, Olivier Theyskens, and Yohji Yamamoto brought elements of goth to runways. This was described as “Haute Goth” by Cintra Wilson in the New York Times. Thierry Mugler, Claude Montana, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Christian Lacroix have also been associated with a gothic style. In Spring 2004, Riccardo Tisci, Jean Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs and Stefano Pilati dressed their models as “glamorous ghouls dressed in form-fitting suits and coal-tinted cocktail dresses”. Swedish designer Helena Horstedt and jewelry artist Hanna Hedman also practice a goth aesthetic.”
Are you also wearing this type of trend? Sometimes they even put sticky gel on their hair to keep it straight up the whole day, which often times gives me the creeps.
I love wearing black shirts as well, but unlike those other people who are overdoing it and end up being laughed at. Specially if they are walking around the mall and there 10 or more of them, all in black shirt with those weird hair styles, I always get goosebumps when I see them.
Whatever fashion you’re in to would be a reflection of your personality. Just don’t overdo it or people will start to disgust you. Some would say, “I don’t care what other people would think about me”. But at the back of your unconscious mind, yes you do care but you just don’t want to admit it. Last week I had a great conversation about the state of the internet and about the changing los angeles web design market.
Some say they are attracted to people who wear this type of style. Are you attracted to this as well? To those women who wears black lipstick, black nail polish, black eyeliner etc.?
If you ask me, I would rather go for the simple, normal girl without obsessing too much on black.
