Dear Prima Bananas,
Debuting Gothic dress prototype in Muslin.
Featuring model Clara Senida Leyba

I’m trying to combine a world where we take subcultural elements such as Gothic and Victorian aesthetics, and combine them with contemporary fashion sense.
The second fitting centers around this Gothic hoop dress I created in black metallic satin and taffeta. This dress along with the Victorian fitted dress in silver satin and taffeta will be featured on the launch photo shoot with our handbags.
On a separate note, the makeup was very much inspired by the Black Swan look of the movie Black Swan featuring Natalie Portman.
It’s absolutely amazing how Clara pulled this one off when the makeup application has not fully being finalized yet!
The end piece will feature Clara wearing a bejeweled head piece inspired by Beijing Opera.
With a bit of Gothic and a bit of Victorian plus contemporary full leather handbags, juxtaposition is an entirely new fashion possibility.
