A supernatural atmosphere dominated the fashion shows of the A/W season as models lined up the latest Gothic style outfit designs using the trademark textures that are able to make these look memorable. Leather and lace are the buzzwords when it comes of taking a trip to the otherside and adopting an unearthly still bloody romantic clothing style. This year Louise Goldin and Givenchy flashed their aspiration to bring to the surface the ghostly and ladylike silhouette with the architectural tailoring techniques as well as swank fabrics. Their creations benefit of huge popularity due to their visionary effect and sharp classy flair.

Louise Goldin decided to sculpt leather to suit a futuristic vision of Goth style. Straight and geometrical angles and lines fused with body-consciousness set the perfect base for a feminine and sophisticated collection. Those who wish to flash their flirty silhouette should feast their eyes on the unique and exquisite looks.
