Richards, Jennifer, 2020, Book Section, The Influence of the genre in high fashion In: Bloom, Clive, (ed.) The Palgrave Handbook of Contemporary Gothic. Palgrave Macmillan, UK, pp. 1063-1074. ISBN 978-3030331368

Abstract or Description:

Within Fashion, there seems to be a resurgence in the fascination with all things Gothic. From Haute Couture to Street Style, many new permutations and hybrids have appeared. These new explorations have shaped the fashion industry, with many designers embracing the darker side of our existence through their recent collections.

Although explorations of the Gothic are not new, this chapter will propose that the Gothic mode’s resilience and adaptation are the reasons why it has continued to be a presence. Its many facets and permutations allow for the Gothic mode to be a continued source of inspiration within contemporary fashion.
